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 countries or nations that do not publish their own standard codes will adopt a set of readily available code as the national reference.CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION 1.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

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

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. The Steel Construction Institute (SCI). Lacking analytical and calculative proof. 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. However. Many designers feel depressed when new codes are introduced (Charles.3 1. namely earlier design over-estimated strength in a few particular circumstances. and new forms of structure evolve and codes are expanded to include them. such as the tables of buckling stresses in existing BS codes. Besides. 2005). The increasing complexity of codes arises due to several reasons. earlier design practice under-estimated strength in various circumstances affecting economy. causing safety issues. for those who pursue economy of material. Finally. Design can be complex. . but it can be simplified for those pursuing speed and clarity. There are new formulae and new complications to master. simple design is possible if the code requirements are presented in an easy-to-use format. 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. 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.

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 EC3. Next. . This structure is intended to serve as an office building. hereafter referred to as BS 5950. Comparison to other steel structural design code is made. All the beam-column connections are to be assumed simple. 1.3 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. The comparison will be made between the EC3 with BS 5950: Part 1: 2000. The standard code used here will be Eurocode 3. 3) To compare the economy aspect between the designs of both BS 5950: Part 1: 2000 and Eurocode 3. A study on the basis and design concept of EC3 will be carried out. 2) To study on the effect of changing the steel grade from S275 to S355 in Eurocode 3. The multi-storey steel frame will be first analyzed by using Microsoft Excel worksheets to obtain the shear and moment values. design spreadsheets will be created to calculate and design the structural members. 2 bay braced frames.4 1.

Meanwhile.5 1.5 Report Layout The report will be divided into five main chapters. 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. Chapter III will be a summary of research methodology. conclusions and recommendations are presented in Chapter V. . Chapter I presents an introduction to the study.

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

which are ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state. it will remain fit for the use for which it is required. 2.3 Design Concept of EC3 All designs are based on limit state design. Safety factor values are recommended in EC3. it will sustain all actions and other influences likely to occur during execution and use and have adequate durability in relation to maintenance costs. 2. selecting a structural form which has low sensitivity to the hazards considered. 2001). to an extent disproportionate to the original cause. eliminating or reducing the hazards which the structure is to sustain. durability and serviceability design does not differ too much.1. Every European country using EC3 has different loading and material standard to accommodate safety limit that is set by respective countries.7 and their resistance. It should also be designed in such a way that it will not be damaged by events like explosions.1. . having due regard to its intended life and its cost. impact or consequences of human errors. Partial safety factor is applied to loadings and design for durability. and tying the structure together.1 Application Rules of EC3 A structure should be designed and constructed in such a way that: with acceptable probability. and with appropriate degrees of reliability. Potential damage should be limited or avoided by appropriate choice of one or more of the following criteria: Avoiding. serviceability and resistance of structure (Taylor. It also covers other construction aspects only if they are necessary for design. selecting a structural form and design that can survive adequately the accidental removal of an individual element.3. EC3 stresses the need for durability. EC3 covers two limit states.

Several clauses were technically updated for topics such as sway stability. Part 1 covers the code of practice for design of rolled and welded sections. hot finished structural hollow sections and cold formed structural hollow sections. shear resistance.2. local buckling. Part 5 concerns design of cold formed thin gauge sections.2 Scope of BS 5950 Part 1 of BS 5950 provides recommendations for the design of structural steelwork using hot rolled steel sections.

Generally. The fundamental of the methods are different joints for different methods. The load carrying capacity of each member should be such that the factored loads will not cause failure. and experimental verification. wind induced oscillation. 2. only 80% of the full specified values need to be considered when checking for serviceability.3 Design Concept of BS 5950 There are several methods of design.2. 2.3. In the case of combined horizontal crane loads and wind load.1 Ultimate Limit States Several elements are considered in ultimate limit states. BS 5950 covers two types of states – ultimate limit states and serviceability limit states. buckling and mechanism formation. and brittle fracture. . serviceability loads should be taken as the unfactored specified values. fracture due to fatigue. Meanwhile. namely simple design. the specified loads should be multiplied by the relevant partial factors γf given in Table 2. only the greater effect needs to be considered when checking for serviceability. continuous design.

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

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

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

4 Design of Steel Beam According to EC3 The design of simply supported steel beam covers all the elements stated below. Class 2 is also known as compact section.1 Cross-sectional Classification A beam section should firstly be classified to determine whether the chosen section will possibly suffer from initial local buckling. When the flange of the beam is relatively too thin. the beam will buckle during pre-mature stage. To avoid this. Beam sections are classified into 4 classes. It has limited rotation capacity. Class 1 is known as plastic section.1.3.18 2. However. Clause 5. This limit allows the formation of a plastic hinge with the rotation capacity required for plastic analysis. It is applicable for plastic design. It can also achieve rectangular stress block. This section can develop plastic moment resistance. plastic hinge is disallowed because local buckling will occur first.3 of EC3 provided limits on the outstand-to-thickness (c/tf) for flange and depth-tothickness (d/tw) in Table 5. Sectional size chosen should satisfy the criteria as stated below: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) Cross-sectional classification Shear capacity Moment capacity (Low shear or High shear) Bearing capacity of web a) b) c) Crushing resistance Crippling resistance Buckling resistance (v) Deflection 2. .4.

Shear buckling resistance should be verified when for an unstiffened web. At each crosssection. 2. Pre-mature buckling will occur before yield strength is achieved. fy is the steel yield strength and γMO is partial safety factor as stated in Clause 5.1. but local buckling is liable to prevent development of the plastic moment resistance.

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. M = 31.54kNm. The moment is distributed between the column lengths above and below 1st floor. Mi = 63.5 x 5000 / 5. the moment will be equally divided. λLT = 45. pb = 233N/mm2 From interpolation.08kNm. Therefore. My / pyZy = 0 Equivalent slenderness λLT of column is given by λLT = 0.5. For EI / L1st-2nd : EI / Lground-1st < 1.78N/mm2 Mb = pbSx = 260.78 x 652 x 10-3 = 170. λLT = 48. for columns in simple construction. the column should satisfy the relationship (Fc / Pc) + (Mx / Mbs) + (My / pyZy) ≤ 1 My = 0.7. pb = 260. therefore. is assumed to be acting 100mm from the face of the column.19 x 10 = 48.17 From Table 16 (Bending strength pb for rolled sections).03kNm .

The moment will then be divided by the design strength fy to obtain an estimated minimum plastic modulus value necessary in the design. This is selected to give a suitable moment capacity.

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.
