design methods. safety factors. namely suitability of application of the code set in a country with respect to its culture. The main purpose of structural design is to produce a safe. loading values and etc. countries or nations that do not publish their own standard codes will adopt a set of readily available code as the national reference. It is a process of converting an architectural perspective into a practical and reasonable entity at construction site. These details include the basis and concept of design. These codes were a product of constant research and development. In present days. Meanwhile. Several factors govern the type of code to be adopted. reference to standard code is essential.CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION 1. climate and national preferences. and past experiences of experts at respective fields. In the structural design of steel structures. economic and functional building. specifications to be followed. . many countries have published their own standard codes. The contents of the standard code generally cover comprehensive details of a design. Structural design should also be an integration of art and science.1 Introduction Structural design is a process of selecting the material type and conducting indepth calculation of a structure to fulfill its construction requirements. A standard code serves as a reference document with important guidance. as well as the trading volume and diplomatic ties between these countries.

contractors and manufacturers of construction products among the European member countries. . The establishment of Eurocode 3 will provide a common understanding regarding the structural steel design between owners. published by the European Commission. amended in the light of any comments arising out of its use before being reissued as the EuroNorm standards (EN). This was followed by the various parts of a pre-standard code. Codes of practice provide detailed guidance and recommendations on design of structural elements. designers.2 Like most of the other structural Eurocodes. were developed. Buckling resistance and shear resistance are two major elements of structural steel design. ENV1993 (ENV stands for EuroNorm Vornorm) issued by Comité Européen de Normalisation (CEN) – the European standardisation committee. It is believed that Eurocode 3 is more comprehensive and better developed compared to national codes. Eurocode 3 has developed in stages. As with other Europeans standards. ECCS. Therefore. Standardization of design code for structural steel in Malaysia is primarily based on the practice in Britain. Therefore. operators and users. the move to withdraw BS 5950 and replace with Eurocode 3 will be taking place in the country as soon as all the preparation has completed. These preliminary standards of ENV will be revised. provision for these topics is covered in certain sections of the codes. Eurocodes will be used in public procurement specifications and to assess products for ‘CE’ (Conformité Européen) mark. From these. The earliest documents seeking to harmonize design rules between European countries were the various recommendations published by the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork. The study on Eurocode 3 in this project will focus on the subject of moment and shear design. the initial draft Eurocode 3.

Design can be complex. causing safety issues. namely earlier design over-estimated strength in a few particular circumstances. Lacking analytical and calculative proof. simple design is possible if a scope of application is defined to avoid the circumstances and the forms of construction in which strength is over-estimated by simple procedures. this project is intended to testify the claim. Finally. However. The increasing complexity of codes arises due to several reasons. Besides. this can be achieved if the designer is not too greedy in the pursuit of the least steel weight from the strength calculations. There are new formulae and new complications to master.3 1. such as the tables of buckling stresses in existing BS codes. The Steel Construction Institute (SCI). 2005). but it can be simplified for those pursuing speed and clarity. even though there seems to be no benefit to the designer for the majority of his regular workload.2 Background of Project The arrival of Eurocode 3 calls for reconsideration of the approach to design. and new forms of structure evolve and codes are expanded to include them. for those who pursue economy of material. earlier design practice under-estimated strength in various circumstances affecting economy. Many designers feel depressed when new codes are introduced (Charles. . simple design is possible if the code requirements are presented in an easy-to-use format. in its publication of “eurocodesnews” magazine has claimed that a steel structural design by using Eurocode 3 is 6 – 8% more cost-saving than using BS 5950.

4 Scope of Project The project focuses mainly on the moment and shear design on structural steel members of a series four-storey.4 1. This structure is intended to serve as an office building. hereafter referred to as EC3. Next. 1. The standard code used here will be Eurocode 3. hereafter referred to as BS 5950. . Comparison to other steel structural design code is made. The multi-storey steel frame will be first analyzed by using Microsoft Excel worksheets to obtain the shear and moment values.3 Objectives The objectives of this project are: 1) To compare the difference in the concept of the design using BS 5950: Part 1: 2000 and Eurocode 3. 2 bay braced frames. 2) To study on the effect of changing the steel grade from S275 to S355 in Eurocode 3. 3) To compare the economy aspect between the designs of both BS 5950: Part 1: 2000 and Eurocode 3. design spreadsheets will be created to calculate and design the structural members. All the beam-column connections are to be assumed simple. A study on the basis and design concept of EC3 will be carried out. The comparison will be made between the EC3 with BS 5950: Part 1: 2000.

Chapter I presents an introduction to the study.5 1. conclusions and recommendations are presented in Chapter V. Results and discussions are presented in Chapter IV. . Meanwhile. Chapter III will be a summary of research methodology. Chapter II presents the literature review that discusses the design procedures and recommendations for steel frame design of the codes EC3 and BS 5950.5 Report Layout The report will be divided into five main chapters.

while Eurocode 4 covers for composite construction.2 Scope of Eurocode 3: Part 1.1 (EC3) EC3. It also covers other construction aspects only if they are necessary for design. “Design of Steel Structures: Part 1. was initiated by the Commission of European Communities as a standard structural design guide. The use of local application rules are allowed only if they have similar principles as EC3 . Eurocode 3 covers steel construction. Application rules must be written in italic style. serviceability and resistance of a structure.1.1. It also covers specific rules for building structures. Principles and application rules are also clearly stated.1 Background of Eurocode 3 (EC3) European Code. It was intended to smooth the trading activities among the European countries. Principles should be typed in Roman wordings.1 Eurocode 3 (EC3) 2. EC3 stresses the need for durability.CHAPTER II LITERATURE REVIEW 2. Eurocode covers concrete construction. or better known as Eurocode. Eurocode 1 covers loading situations.1 General rules and rules for buildings” covers the general rules for designing all types of structural steel. 2. Eurocode is separated by the use of different construction materials.

1. 2. 2. Safety factor values are recommended in EC3. It also covers other construction aspects only if they are necessary for design. EC3 stresses the need for durability. it will sustain all actions and other influences likely to occur during execution and use and have adequate durability in relation to maintenance costs. it will remain fit for the use for which it is required. which are ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state.3. Every European country using EC3 has different loading and material standard to accommodate safety limit that is set by respective countries. to an extent disproportionate to the original cause. . durability and serviceability design does not differ too much. 2001).1 Application Rules of EC3 A structure should be designed and constructed in such a way that: with acceptable probability. Partial safety factor is applied to loadings and design for durability. It should also be designed in such a way that it will not be damaged by events like explosions. and with appropriate degrees of reliability. and tying the structure together. selecting a structural form and design that can survive adequately the accidental removal of an individual element.7 and their resistance.3 Design Concept of EC3 All designs are based on limit state design. serviceability and resistance of structure (Taylor. eliminating or reducing the hazards which the structure is to sustain. Potential damage should be limited or avoided by appropriate choice of one or more of the following criteria: Avoiding.1. impact or consequences of human errors. EC3 covers two limit states. selecting a structural form which has low sensitivity to the hazards considered. having due regard to its intended life and its cost.

actions are defined as fixed actions. e. which result in different arrangements of actions. actions can be grouped into permanent actions (G).3. and vibration. Meanwhile. snow loads. It may require certain consideration. . This failure may be caused by excessive deformation.g.g. temperature effects or settlement. and accidental loads (A). imposed loads. rupture. In time variation classification. e.g.g.3 Serviceability Limit State Serviceability limit states correspond to states beyond which specified service criteria are no longer met. including: deformations or deflections which adversely affect the appearance or effective use of the structure (including the proper functioning of machines or services) or cause damage to finishes or non-structural elements.1.g. self-weight of structures. which causes discomfort to people. or an imposed deformation in indirect action. variable actions (Q). wind loads or snow loads. self-weight. considered as a rigid body. explosions or impact from vehicles. or with other forms of structural failure which may endanger the safety of people. for example. wind loads.

Part 6 covers design for light gauge profiled steel sheeting.1 Background of BS 5950 BS 5950 was prepared to supersede BS 5950: Part 1: 1990.2. 2. etc. Changes were due to structural safety. . avoidance of disproportionate collapse.9 2. Part 2 and 7 deal with specification for materials. members subject to combined axial force and bending moment. Part 1 covers the code of practice for design of rolled and welded sections.2 Scope of BS 5950 Part 1 of BS 5950 provides recommendations for the design of structural steelwork using hot rolled steel sections. sheeting respectively. which was withdrawn. but offsetting potential reductions in economy was also one of the reasons. hot finished structural hollow sections and cold formed structural hollow sections. Part 8 comprises of code of practice for fire resistance design. shear resistance. fabrication and erected for rolled. They are being used in buildings and allied structures not specifically covered by other standards.2. plates. BS 5950 comprises of nine parts.2 BS 5950 2. and Part 9 covers the code of practice for stressed skin design. lateral-torsional buckling. Part 5 concerns design of cold formed thin gauge sections. local buckling. Part 3 and Part 4 focus mainly on composite design and construction. Several clauses were technically updated for topics such as sway stability.

2. wind induced oscillation. stability against overturning and sway sensitivity. They are: strength. the specified loads should be multiplied by the relevant partial factors γf given in Table 2. The fundamental of the methods are different joints for different methods. and experimental verification. only 80% of the full specified values need to be considered when checking for serviceability. semi-continuous design. In the case of combined imposed load and wind load. Generally. Meanwhile. and brittle fracture.2.2 Serviceability Limit States There are several elements to be considered in serviceability limit states – Deflection.3.2.3 Design Concept of BS 5950 There are several methods of design. in checking. continuous design. and durability. fracture due to fatigue. 2. buckling and mechanism formation.1 Ultimate Limit States Several elements are considered in ultimate limit states. vibration. The load carrying capacity of each member should be such that the factored loads will not cause failure.10 2. rupture. namely simple design. only the greater effect needs to be considered when checking for serviceability. inclusive of general yielding. . Generally. in the design for limiting states. serviceability loads should be taken as the unfactored specified values.3. 2. BS 5950 covers two types of states – ultimate limit states and serviceability limit states. In the case of combined horizontal crane loads and wind load.

1 Cross-sectional Classification Cross-sections should be classified to determine whether local buckling influences their capacity. .11 2. earth and groundwater loading. There are dead. The classification of each element of a cross-section subject to compression (due to a bending moment or an axial force) should be based on its width-to-thickness ratio. 2. the settlement of supports should be taken into account as well. without calculating their local buckling resistance. Loading conditions during erection should be given particular attention. The elements of a cross-section are generally of constant thickness. Where necessary. Sectional size chosen should satisfy the criteria as stated below: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) Cross-sectional classification Shear capacity Moment capacity (Low shear or High shear) Moment Capacity of Web against Shear Buckling Bearing capacity of web Deflection 2. imposed and wind loading.4 Loading BS 5950 had identified and classified several loads that act on the structure.3 Design of Steel Beam According to BS 5950 The design of simply supported steel beam covers all the elements stated below. All relevant loads should be separately considered and combined realistically as to compromise the most critical effects on the elements and the structure as a whole. overhead traveling cranes.2.3.

a crosssection may be classified with its compression flange and its web in different classes.3 of BS 5950 states the shear force Fv should not be greater than the shear capacity Pv.3. Class 3 is known as semi-compact section. Fv. Pv The web of a section will sustain the shear in a structure. local buckling will bar any rotation at constant moment. However. the stress at the extreme compression fiber can reach design strength. When this section is applied. the complete cross-section should be classified according to the highest (least favourable) class of its compression elements. Alternatively. Sections that do not meet the limits for class 3 semi-compact sections should be classified as class 4 slender. It is cross-section with plastic hinge rotation capacity. the plastic moment capacity cannot be reached. Clause 4. Cross-sections at this category should be given explicit allowance for the effects of local buckling. Class 1 is known as plastic section.2 Shear Capacity. However.2.6pyAv . Class 2 is known as compact section. It enables plastic moment to take place. 2. Class 1 section is used for plastic design as the plastic hinge rotation capacity enables moment redistribution within the structure. Shear capacity is normally checked at section part that sustains the maximum shear force.12 Generally. Class 4 is known as slender section. given by: Pv = 0.

BS 5950 provides various formulas for different type of sections. Mc At sectional parts that suffer from maximum moment. Seff is the effective plastic modulus. Mc = pyZ or alternatively Mc = pySeff for class 3 semi-compact sections.3 Moment Capacity. 2. py is the design strength of steel and it depends on the thickness of the web.3.1 Low Shear Moment Capacity This situation occurs when the maximum shear force Fv does not exceed 60% of the shear capacity Pv. moment capacity of the section needs to be verified. Z is the section modulus. .3. and Mc = pyZeff for class 4 slender cross-sections where S is the plastic modulus.3. There are two situations to be verified in the checking of moment capacity – low shear moment capacity and high shear moment capacity. Clause 4.2 of BS 5950 states that: Mc = pyS for class 1 plastic or class 2 compact cross-sections.5.13 in which Av is the shear area. 2.2. and Zeff is the effective section modulus.

Structural Column Design

Structural column design deals with all the relevant checking necessary in the design of a selected structural beam. In simple construction, apart from section classification, two major checks that need to be done is compression and combined axial and bending at ultimate limit state.

The sub-sections next will show one design example which is the internal column “ground floor to 1st floor” (length 5m) of the steel frame with bay width 6m and of steel grade S 275 (Fe 430).

3.10.1 BS 5950

In simple construction, apart from section classification, necessary checks for ultimate limit state will be compression resistance and combined axial force and moment. The axial force and eccentricity moment value for this particular internal column are 1415.52kN and 63.08kNm respectively.

From the section table for universal column, the sections are rearranged in ascending form, first the mass (kg/m) and then the plastic modulus Sx (cm3). The moment will then be divided by the design strength py to obtain an estimated minimum plastic modulus value necessary in the design.

Sx = M / py

58 = 63.08 x 103 / 275 = 229.4cm3

From the rearranged table, UC section 203x203x60 is chosen. This is selected to give a suitable moment capacity. The size will then be checked to ensure suitability in all other aspects.

From the section table, the properties of the UC chosen are as follows: Mass = 60kg/m; Depth, D = 209.6mm; Width, B = 205.2mm; Web thickness, t = 9.3mm; Flange thickness, T = 14.2mm; Depth between fillets, d = 160.8mm; Plastic modulus, Sx = 652cm3; Elastic modulus, Zx = 581.1cm3; Radius of gyration, rx = 8.96cm, ry = 5.19cm; Gross area, Ag = 75.8cm2; b/T = 7.23 (b = 0.5B); d/t = 17.3.

T < 16mm, therefore, py = 275N/mm2 ε = √(275/py) = √(275/275) = 1.0

Sectional classification is based on Table 11 of BS 5950. Actual b/T = 7.23, which is smaller than 9ε = 9.0. This is the limit for Class 1 plastic section (Outstand element of compression flange). Therefore, flange is Class 1 plastic section. Meanwhile, actual d/t = 17.3. For web of I-section under axial compression and bending, the limiting value for Class 1 plastic section is 80ε / 1 + r1, where r1 is given by r1 = Fc / dtpy. r1 = 1415.52 x 103 / 160.8 x 9.3 x 275 = 3.44 but -1 < r1 ≤ 1, therefore, r1 = 1 Limiting d/t value = 80 x 1 / 1 + 1 = 40

59 > Actual d/t = 17.3 Therefore, the web is Class 1 plastic section. Since both flange and web are plastic, this section is Class 1 plastic section.

Next, based on section 4.7.2 “Slenderness” and section 4.7.3 “Effective lengths”, and from Table 22 (Restrained in direction at one end), the effective length, LE = 0.85L = 0.85 x 5000 = 4250mm. λx = LEx / rx = 4250 / 8.96 x 10 = 47.4

Next, based on section 4.7.4 “Compression resistance”, for class 1 plastic section, compression resistance, Pc = Agpc. pc is the compressive strength determined from Table 24. For buckling about x-x axis, T < 40mm, strut curve (b) is used. λx = 46, pc = 242N/mm2 λx = 48, pc = 239N/mm2 From interpolation, λx = 47.4, pc = 239.9N/mm2 Pc = Agpc = 75.8 x 100 x 239.9 x 10-3 = 1818.44kN > Fc = 1415.52kN Therefore, compressive resistance is adequate.

λLT = 45. is assumed to be acting 100mm from the face of the column.17 From Table 16 (Bending strength pb for rolled sections). Mi = 63. The moment is distributed between the column lengths above and below 1st floor. My / pyZy = 0 Equivalent slenderness λLT of column is given by λLT = 0. pb = 250N/mm2 λLT = 50. M = 31. pb = 260. the column should satisfy the relationship (Fc / Pc) + (Mx / Mbs) + (My / pyZy) ≤ 1 My = 0.7 “Columns in simple structures”. the beam reaction.08kNm. when only nominal moments are applied.5.19 x 10 = 48. From frame analysis. in proportion to the bending stiffness of each length. λLT = 48. therefore. R.78 x 652 x 10-3 = 170.7. Therefore. pb = 233N/mm2 From interpolation. for columns in simple construction. Section 4.17.03kNm .

From the section table for universal column.96 < 1.52 / 1818. This section satisfied all the required criteria in ultimate limit state check. the sections are rearranged in ascending form.88 x 103 / 275 = 210. . This is selected to give a suitable moment capacity. The moment will then be divided by the design strength fy to obtain an estimated minimum plastic modulus value necessary in the design. necessary checks for ultimate limit state will be cross-section resistance (in the form of moment resistance) and in-plane failure about major axis (which is a combination of axial force and eccentricity moment). The size will then be checked to ensure suitability in all other aspects.

Shear capacity designed by BS 5950 is overall higher than EC3 design by the range of 5.27 – 6.96% and 6.22 – 9.34% for steel grade S275 (Fe 430) and S355 (Fe 510) respectively. This is mainly due to the partial safety factor γM1 of 1,05 imposed by EC3 in the design. Also, the compression strength fc determined from Table 5.14(a) of EC3 is less than the compression strength pc determined from Table 24 of BS 5950.

Meanwhile, as the size of section increases, the difference percentage changes from -16.45% to 8.26% for S275 (Fe 460) and -41.81% to 7.67% for S355 (Fe 510). This means that smaller sizes designed by EC3 have higher moment capacity than BS 5950 design. From the moment capacity formula of BS 5950,

Mb = pbSx

pb depends on equivalent slenderness λLT, which is also dependant on the member length. The bigger the member size, the higher the radius of gyration, ry is. Therefore, pb increases with the increase in member size.

However, moment capacity based on EC3 design,

Mpl.y.Rd = Wpl.y fy / γM0

73 The moment capacity is not dependant on equivalent slenderness. Therefore, when member sizes increase, eventually, the moment capacity based on EC3 is overtaken by BS 5950 design.
