OBJECTVIES

Students are expected to design the framing plan (which consists of beam and girder)
with a steel member. Design criteria to be inspected is the flexural strength of the member. ASD
and LRFD scenario are to be used in designing the steel members of the frame. More research
about tributary load and one way/ two way must be also done.

II.

INTRODUCTION and THEORETICAL BACKGROUND

Steel beams are designed with an assurance that the member will not fail at any
type of scenario. For this exercise, flexural design is to be focused on. For flexural, there
are 3 types of failure mode namely, Full Yielding, Inelastic lateral-torsional buckling, and
Elastic lateral-torsional buckling. This has been discussed in CIVDES2. Loadings are still
the same since the first exercise ranging from ASD (No factor) and LRFD (Factored).
These are the 2 methods in designing.
Beams are placed over the girders, which means the girder carries all the weight
that is carried by the beam (if one way slab is being considered). The girder may also
carry some weight of the slab that is not carried by the beam (two way slab). This will be
discussed further on the tributary area.
Tributary Area is an imaginary area that shows a particular boundary that will be
carried by a particular member. One way slab tributary area is only a rectangular in shape
as shown below. As seen from the figure, it is solely to be carried by the beam itself. Two
way slabs tributary area

Figure 2.1 Tributary Area of a single way slab.

is a little bit more complicated. There are parts that is being carried by the beam and by the
girder. The tributary area can be seen below.

Figure 2.2 Tributary Area of a two way slab.

Finally this exercise will be utilizing a one way slab due to the dimension ratio.
According to studies and experience, if Short/Longer >2, then it will be considered as a single
way slab. With one way slab, reinforcement is only applied in a single direction.
With various sources, studies, experimentation, it was seen that the beam does carry the
whole area (1 way slab) thus the beam will experience a uniform load. While the girder will
experience point loads from the beam, which carried the tributary area.

OBSERVATION ,ANALYSIS and CONCLUSION

This exercise aims to design a steel member by looking at the flexural failure
scenario. Steps are different from the past exercises. It is very important to understand the
concept of tributary load in order to do this exercise correctly.
In this computational exercise, the loadings were solved by looking at the NSCP
provisions. Material specifications were given and to be looked up in the manual. This
needed, this is almost the same with exercise 4 except that it will only include one
dimension (rather than 2 dimensions being multiplied with q).
It was computed that the uniform load for ASD was about 49.68 kN/m and for
LRFD was about 73.12 kN/m. This is then applied to the beam members. Beam
members then will be designed and will result to a new reaction force due to the inclusion
of weight. This is then to be used for the loadings in girder.
The final design for ASD (Beam) is W21X166, LRFD (Beam) is W33X118, ASD
and LRFD (Girder) is W33 X169. ASD tends to ask for a higher Zx compared to LRFD.
