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 countries or nations that do not publish their own standard codes will adopt a set of readily available code as the national reference.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

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

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

The multi-storey steel frame will be first analyzed by using Microsoft Excel worksheets to obtain the shear and moment values. 2) To study on the effect of changing the steel grade from S275 to S355 in Eurocode 3. hereafter referred to as EC3. Next. hereafter referred to as BS 5950. The standard code used here will be 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. All the beam-column connections are to be assumed simple.4 Scope of Project The project focuses mainly on the moment and shear design on structural steel members of a series four-storey. design spreadsheets will be created to calculate and design the structural members. . A study on the basis and design concept of EC3 will be carried out. Comparison to other steel structural design code is made. This structure is intended to serve as an office building. 2 bay braced frames. The comparison will be made between the EC3 with BS 5950: Part 1: 2000. 3) To compare the economy aspect between the designs of both BS 5950: Part 1: 2000 and Eurocode 3. 1.4 1.

Chapter III will be a summary of research methodology.5 Report Layout The report will be divided into five main chapters. . Meanwhile.5 1. conclusions and recommendations are presented in Chapter V. Chapter I presents an introduction to the study. Results and discussions are presented in Chapter IV. Chapter II presents the literature review that discusses the design procedures and recommendations for steel frame design of the codes EC3 and BS 5950.

1.1 (EC3) EC3. It also covers other construction aspects only if they are necessary for design.1 Background of Eurocode 3 (EC3) European Code. Principles and application rules are also clearly stated.2 Scope of Eurocode 3: Part 1.1 Eurocode 3 (EC3) 2. It was intended to smooth the trading activities among the European countries. Eurocode is separated by the use of different construction materials. “Design of Steel Structures: Part 1. Application rules must be written in italic style.1.CHAPTER II LITERATURE REVIEW 2. was initiated by the Commission of European Communities as a standard structural design guide. 2.1 General rules and rules for buildings” covers the general rules for designing all types of structural steel. or better known as Eurocode. Eurocode 1 covers loading situations. It also covers specific rules for building structures. Principles should be typed in Roman wordings. serviceability and resistance of a structure. EC3 stresses the need for durability. while Eurocode 4 covers for composite construction. Eurocode covers concrete construction. The use of local application rules are allowed only if they have similar principles as EC3 . Eurocode 3 covers steel construction.

Partial safety factor is applied to loadings and design for durability. and tying the structure together. to an extent disproportionate to the original cause. it will sustain all actions and other influences likely to occur during execution and use and have adequate durability in relation to maintenance costs. selecting a structural form and design that can survive adequately the accidental removal of an individual element. It should also be designed in such a way that it will not be damaged by events like explosions.3 Design Concept of EC3 All designs are based on limit state design. durability and serviceability design does not differ too much. 2. 2.1. EC3 stresses the need for durability. Potential damage should be limited or avoided by appropriate choice of one or more of the following criteria: Avoiding.3. . eliminating or reducing the hazards which the structure is to sustain. It also covers other construction aspects only if they are necessary for design. serviceability and resistance of structure (Taylor. which are ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state. and with appropriate degrees of reliability. 2001). having due regard to its intended life and its cost. EC3 covers two limit states.7 and their resistance. it will remain fit for the use for which it is required.1. Every European country using EC3 has different loading and material standard to accommodate safety limit that is set by respective countries.1 Application Rules of EC3 A structure should be designed and constructed in such a way that: with acceptable probability. selecting a structural form which has low sensitivity to the hazards considered. impact or consequences of human errors. Safety factor values are recommended in EC3.

imposed loads. and vibration. and loss of equilibrium of the structure or any part of it. snow loads. or an imposed deformation in indirect action. wind loads or snow loads. actions are defined as fixed actions. self-weight. and accidental loads (A).4 Actions of EC3 An action (F) is a force (load) applied to the structure in direct action. rupture. wind loads. including supports and foundations.3.g. This failure may be caused by excessive deformation. considered as a rigid body. e. or with other forms of structural failure which may endanger the safety of people. movable imposed loads.g. which causes discomfort to people. for example. e. 2. e. .g. Meanwhile. and free actions. or which limits its functional effectiveness. Actions are classified by variation in time and by their spatial variation. or loss of stability of the structure or any part of it. 2. 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.2 Ultimate Limit State Ultimate limit states are those associated with collapse.1. e. It may require certain consideration. which result in different arrangements of actions. Partial or whole of structure will suffer from failure.1. variable actions (Q). e. in spatial variation classification. In time variation classification. temperature effects or settlement. explosions or impact from vehicles.3 Serviceability Limit State Serviceability limit states correspond to states beyond which specified service criteria are no longer met. ancillaries and fixed equipment.g. fittings. self-weight of structures. damage to the building or its contents.3.g.1. actions can be grouped into permanent actions (G).8 2.

local buckling. lateral-torsional buckling. . Several clauses were technically updated for topics such as sway stability.2. flats. Part 6 covers design for light gauge profiled steel sheeting. Part 3 and Part 4 focus mainly on composite design and construction. Part 2 and 7 deal with specification for materials.2 BS 5950 2. BS 5950 comprises of nine parts.2. Part 8 comprises of code of practice for fire resistance design. and Part 9 covers the code of practice for stressed skin design. Part 1 covers the code of practice for design of rolled and welded sections. 2.2 Scope of BS 5950 Part 1 of BS 5950 provides recommendations for the design of structural steelwork using hot rolled steel sections. members subject to combined axial force and bending moment. welded sections and cold formed sections. etc. hot finished structural hollow sections and cold formed structural hollow sections. but offsetting potential reductions in economy was also one of the reasons. shear resistance. sheeting respectively. Part 5 concerns design of cold formed thin gauge sections. fabrication and erected for rolled.9 2. which was withdrawn. They are being used in buildings and allied structures not specifically covered by other standards. plates. avoidance of disproportionate collapse.1 Background of BS 5950 BS 5950 was prepared to supersede BS 5950: Part 1: 1990. Changes were due to structural safety.

2. Meanwhile. only the greater effect needs to be considered when checking for serviceability. Generally. . and experimental verification.3. buckling and mechanism formation. only 80% of the full specified values need to be considered when checking for serviceability.2.1 Ultimate Limit States Several elements are considered in ultimate limit states.3 Design Concept of BS 5950 There are several methods of design.2 Serviceability Limit States There are several elements to be considered in serviceability limit states – Deflection. wind induced oscillation.3. in checking. Generally. 2. In the case of combined horizontal crane loads and wind load. and durability. serviceability loads should be taken as the unfactored specified values. vibration. in the design for limiting states.2. The load carrying capacity of each member should be such that the factored loads will not cause failure. stability against overturning and sway sensitivity.2. The fundamental of the methods are different joints for different methods. continuous design. semi-continuous design. They are: strength. In the case of combined imposed load and wind load. rupture. fracture due to fatigue. inclusive of general yielding.10 2. the specified loads should be multiplied by the relevant partial factors γf given in Table 2. and brittle fracture. BS 5950 covers two types of states – ultimate limit states and serviceability limit states. namely simple design.

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

2. Class 1 section is used for plastic design as the plastic hinge rotation capacity enables moment redistribution within the structure. Pv The web of a section will sustain the shear in a structure. a crosssection may be classified with its compression flange and its web in different classes. the stress at the extreme compression fiber can reach design strength. the plastic moment capacity cannot be reached.12 Generally. the complete cross-section should be classified according to the highest (least favourable) class of its compression elements. Class 1 is known as plastic section.6pyAv .3. given by: Pv = 0.3 of BS 5950 states the shear force Fv should not be greater than the shear capacity Pv. It enables plastic moment to take place. It is cross-section with plastic hinge rotation capacity. Class 3 is known as semi-compact section. However. local buckling will bar any rotation at constant moment.2. Class 4 is known as slender section. Clause 4. Cross-sections at this category should be given explicit allowance for the effects of local buckling. Alternatively. However. Shear capacity is normally checked at section part that sustains the maximum shear force.2 Shear 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. Fv.

Mc = pyZ or alternatively Mc = pySeff for class 3 semi-compact sections. 2. py is the design strength of steel and it depends on the thickness of the web. Z is the section modulus. There are two situations to be verified in the checking of moment capacity – low shear moment capacity and high shear moment capacity. Clause 4.13 in which Av is the shear area. Mc At sectional parts that suffer from maximum moment.2 of BS 5950 states that: Mc = pyS for class 1 plastic or class 2 compact cross-sections. and Zeff is the effective section modulus. Seff is the effective plastic modulus.3. moment capacity of the section needs to be verified. 2.3.3 Moment Capacity. . BS 5950 provides various formulas for different type of sections.5. and Mc = pyZeff for class 4 slender cross-sections where S is the plastic modulus.3.1 Low Shear Moment Capacity This situation occurs when the maximum shear force Fv does not exceed 60% of the shear capacity Pv.2.

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.

My / pyZy = 0 Equivalent slenderness λLT of column is given by λLT = 0. pb = 250N/mm2 λLT = 50.7. Section 4.19 x 10 = 48. Mi = 63. therefore. For EI / L1st-2nd : EI / Lground-1st < 1.03kNm . From frame analysis.5 x 5000 / 5. pb = 233N/mm2 From interpolation.17 From Table 16 (Bending strength pb for rolled sections). The moment is distributed between the column lengths above and below 1st floor. M = 31.54kNm. Therefore. λLT = 45.78N/mm2 Mb = pbSx = 260.78 x 652 x 10-3 = 170. pb = 260.08kNm. λLT = 48. for columns in simple construction.17. R.5L / ry = 0. when only nominal moments are applied.7 “Columns in simple structures”.5. the beam reaction. the column should satisfy the relationship (Fc / Pc) + (Mx / Mbs) + (My / pyZy) ≤ 1 My = 0.60 Next. the moment will be equally divided. is assumed to be acting 100mm from the face of the column. in proportion to the bending stiffness of each length.

The moment will then be divided by the design strength fy to obtain an estimated minimum plastic modulus value necessary in the design. 3. the sections are rearranged in ascending form. it is adequate to be used.y = MSd / fy = 57. the combined resistance against axial force and eccentricity moment is adequate. .0 Therefore.88 x 103 / 275 = 210. The size will then be checked to ensure suitability in all other aspects.88kNm respectively.5cm3 From the rearranged table. From the section table for universal column. The axial force and eccentricity moment value for this particular internal column are 1351. Therefore.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).2 EC 3 In simple construction.44 + 31.08kN and 57.61 (Fc / Pc) + (Mx / Mbs) = 1415.96 < 1.

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.
