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 countries or nations that do not publish their own standard codes will adopt a set of readily available code as the national reference.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

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

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

This structure is intended to serve as an office building. hereafter referred to as EC3.4 Scope of Project The project focuses mainly on the moment and shear design on structural steel members of a series four-storey. hereafter referred to as BS 5950. 2 bay braced frames. The comparison will be made between the EC3 with BS 5950: Part 1: 2000. All the beam-column connections are to be assumed simple. A study on the basis and design concept of EC3 will be carried out. Next. Comparison to other steel structural design code is made. The standard code used here will be Eurocode 3. 1. . The multi-storey steel frame will be first analyzed by using Microsoft Excel worksheets to obtain the shear and moment values. 3) To compare the economy aspect between the designs of both BS 5950: Part 1: 2000 and Eurocode 3.4 1. design spreadsheets will be created to calculate and design the structural members. 2) To study on the effect of changing the steel grade from S275 to S355 in Eurocode 3.3 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.

Chapter II presents the literature review that discusses the design procedures and recommendations for steel frame design of the codes EC3 and BS 5950. Chapter III will be a summary of research methodology. Results and discussions are presented in Chapter IV. Meanwhile.

Principles and application rules are also clearly stated. was initiated by the Commission of European Communities as a standard structural design guide. It also covers other construction aspects only if they are necessary for design.1 General rules and rules for buildings” covers the general rules for designing all types of structural steel. or better known as Eurocode. 2.1. Eurocode is separated by the use of different construction materials.CHAPTER II LITERATURE REVIEW 2. while Eurocode 4 covers for composite construction.1 (EC3) EC3.

Part 1 covers the code of practice for design of rolled and welded sections. Changes were due to structural safety. They are being used in buildings and allied structures not specifically covered by other standards. members subject to combined axial force and bending moment. Part 3 and Part 4 focus mainly on composite design and construction. Part 2 and 7 deal with specification for materials. BS 5950 comprises of nine parts.2 Scope of BS 5950 Part 1 of BS 5950 provides recommendations for the design of structural steelwork using hot rolled steel sections.

3. namely simple design. In the case of combined horizontal crane loads and wind load. The fundamental of the methods are different joints for different methods. BS 5950 covers two types of states – ultimate limit states and serviceability limit states.2 Serviceability Limit States There are several elements to be considered in serviceability limit states – Deflection. In the case of combined imposed load and wind load. and experimental verification. Generally. only 80% of the full specified values need to be considered when checking for serviceability.2. Meanwhile. in checking. 2. and brittle fracture. rupture. in the design for limiting states.3. wind induced oscillation. serviceability loads should be taken as the unfactored specified values. They are: strength. buckling and mechanism formation. semi-continuous design. 2. only the greater effect needs to be considered when checking for serviceability.10 2.2.1 Ultimate Limit States Several elements are considered in ultimate limit states. inclusive of general yielding. Generally. stability against overturning and sway sensitivity. and durability.3 Design Concept of BS 5950 There are several methods of design.2. . fracture due to fatigue. The load carrying capacity of each member should be such that the factored loads will not cause failure. continuous design. vibration. the specified loads should be multiplied by the relevant partial factors γf given in Table 2.

3. The elements of a cross-section are generally of constant thickness.11 2. Loading conditions during erection should be given particular attention. the settlement of supports should be taken into account as well. overhead traveling cranes.4 Loading BS 5950 had identified and classified several loads that act on the structure. 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. earth and groundwater loading. 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. . 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. 2.3 Design of Steel Beam According to BS 5950 The design of simply supported steel beam covers all the elements stated below.1 Cross-sectional Classification Cross-sections should be classified to determine whether local buckling influences their capacity. Where necessary. without calculating their local buckling resistance.2. There are dead.

However. the plastic moment capacity cannot be reached. Pv The web of a section will sustain the shear in a structure. It is cross-section with plastic hinge rotation capacity. Sections that do not meet the limits for class 3 semi-compact sections should be classified as class 4 slender. When this section is applied. Class 2 is known as compact section.2 Shear Capacity.6pyAv .2. a crosssection may be classified with its compression flange and its web in different classes. Class 1 section is used for plastic design as the plastic hinge rotation capacity enables moment redistribution within the structure.12 Generally. the stress at the extreme compression fiber can reach design strength. Alternatively. Clause 4. local buckling will bar any rotation at constant moment. Shear capacity is normally checked at section part that sustains the maximum shear force. Fv.3 of BS 5950 states the shear force Fv should not be greater than the shear capacity Pv. However. given by: Pv = 0. Class 1 is known as plastic section. Class 4 is known as slender section.3. Cross-sections at this category should be given explicit allowance for the effects of local buckling. Class 3 is known as semi-compact section. the complete cross-section should be classified according to the highest (least favourable) class of its compression elements. 2. It enables plastic moment to take place.

There are two situations to be verified in the checking of moment capacity – low shear moment capacity and high shear moment capacity.13 in which Av is the shear area. Clause 4. and Mc = pyZeff for class 4 slender cross-sections where S is the plastic modulus. Mc = pyZ or alternatively Mc = pySeff for class 3 semi-compact sections. moment capacity of the section needs to be verified.1 Low Shear Moment Capacity This situation occurs when the maximum shear force Fv does not exceed 60% of the shear capacity Pv. .2 of BS 5950 states that: Mc = pyS for class 1 plastic or class 2 compact cross-sections. Mc At sectional parts that suffer from maximum moment. BS 5950 provides various formulas for different type of sections. and Zeff is the effective section modulus. 2.5.3. 2. Seff is the effective plastic modulus.2.3.3 Moment Capacity. py is the design strength of steel and it depends on the thickness of the web. Z is the section modulus.3.

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.

60 Next. R.5. is assumed to be acting 100mm from the face of the column. Mi = 63.17 From Table 16 (Bending strength pb for rolled sections). the beam reaction. when only nominal moments are applied.19 x 10 = 48.7 “Columns in simple structures”. The moment is distributed between the column lengths above and below 1st floor. From frame analysis. For EI / L1st-2nd : EI / Lground-1st < 1.5 x 5000 / 5.54kNm.78 x 652 x 10-3 = 170. My / pyZy = 0 Equivalent slenderness λLT of column is given by λLT = 0. λLT = 48. the moment will be equally divided. Therefore. the column should satisfy the relationship (Fc / Pc) + (Mx / Mbs) + (My / pyZy) ≤ 1 My = 0. Section 4.08kNm. for columns in simple construction. pb = 260. λLT = 45. pb = 233N/mm2 From interpolation.5L / ry = 0.78N/mm2 Mb = pbSx = 260.03kNm . therefore.17.

This section satisfied all the required criteria in ultimate limit state check. 3. it is adequate to be used.88 x 103 / 275 = 210. The moment will then be divided by the design strength fy to obtain an estimated minimum plastic modulus value necessary in the design. apart from section classification.10. 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).y (cm3). Therefore. UC section 254x254x73 is chosen. This is selected to give a suitable moment capacity.0 Therefore.88kNm respectively. .

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.
