Loads

Prepared by ZMR

2.1 Forces

A force is that which tends to exert motion, tension or

compression on an object.

The loads acting on a structure have mass which is

usually measured in kilograms(kg).

The basic unit of force is the newton (N). The force

exerted on a structure by a static load is dependent upon

both its mass and the force of gravity.

The force exerted by a body as a result of gravity can be

described as its weight.

F =W= m x g

Therefore, the force exerted by a mass of 1 kg is:

F=mxg

= 1 x 9.81

Cartesian Vector Notation

We resolve vectors into components

using the x and y axes system

Each component of the vector is

shown as a magnitude and a

direction.

The directions are based on the x

provided with supports to prevent it from

moving. The forces generated on the structure

by these supports are called reactions. If the

F = 90 x ( x 252) = 176,714.59 N = 176.71 kN

Solution

The tensile stress in the bar

E = stress/strain

200 x 103 = 90/

= 90/ 200 x 103

= 4.5 x 10-4

Strain () = L/L

4.5 x 10-4 = L/1500

L = 0.675 mm

Exercise 1

A flat steel tie-bar 4.5 m long, is found to be 2.4mm short. It is

sprung into place by means of drafts driven into holes in the end

of the bar. Determine:

(a) the stress in the bar

(b) the factor of safety if the material of the tie-bar has an

ultimate

stress of 450 N/mm2. Take E for the material as

205 kN/mm2.

( Ans: 109.3 N/mm2, 4.117)

88

Exercise 2

A metal tube of outside diameter 75 mm and length 1.65 m is to

carry a compressive load of 60 kN. If the allowable axial stress is

75 N/mm2 , calculate the inside diameter of the tube. If E of the

material is 90 kN/mm2., by how much will the tube shorten under

this load?

Ans: 67.87 mm, 1.375 mm)

Primary Loads are divided into three broad categories

according to the way in which they act upon the structure or

structural element. These are DEAD LOADS, LIVE

LOADS(IMPOSED LOADS) and WIND LOADS

DEADLOADS

Dead Loads are those loads which are considered

to act permanently; they are "dead," stationary, and

unable to be removed. The self-weight of the

structural members normally provides the largest

portion of the dead load of a building. This will

clearly vary with the actual materials chosen.

Permanent non-structural elements such as roofing,

concrete, flooring, pipes, ducts, interior partition

walls, Environmental Control Systems machinery,

elevator machinery and all other construction

systems within a building must also be included in

the calculation of the total dead load. These loads

are represented by the red arrow in the illustration.

The dead load of a floor or a roof is generally evaluated for one square meter of floor or

roof area

LIVE LOADS

Live Loads are not permanent and can

change in magnitude. They include

items found within a building such as

furniture, pianos, safes, people, books,

cars, computers, machinery, or stored

materials, as well as environmental

effects such as loads due to the sun,

earth or weather.

WIND LOADS

Wind and earthquakes loads are put

into the special category of lateral live

loads due to the severity of their action

upon a building and their potential to

cause failure.

Prepared by ZMR

93

Secondary loads

Structures can be subjected to secondary loads from

temperature changes, shrinkage of members and settlement of

supports.

Example 1

Figure shows a precast concrete

Beam which is 10.5 m long.

a) Calculate the weight of the

beam per unit length in kN/m

b) Calculate the total weight of

the beam

Prepared by ZMR

95

Solution

a) Cross sectional area of the

beam

= (0.6 x 0.25) (0.4 x 0.15)

= 0.09 m2

Unit weight of concrete = 24 kN/m3

Weight per unit length = 0.09 x 24

= 2.16 kN/m

b) Total weight of the beam

= 2.16 x 10.5 = 22.68 kN

96

Example 2

The floor in a multi-storey office. Building consists of the

following:

Vinyl tiles

40 mm sand/cement screed

125 mm reinforced concrete

slab

Acoustic tile suspended ceiling

Determine the dead load in kN/m2

Prepared by ZMR

97

Solution

From the table given

Vinyl tiles

= 0.05

40 mm sand/cement screed = 0.6 x (40/25) = 0.96

125 mm reinforced concrete = 0.125 x 24

= 3.00

slab

Acoustic tile suspended ceiling = 0.10

The dead load = 4.11 kN/m2

Prepared by ZMR

98

Exercise 1

Figure shows the outer wall of a multi-storey

building which is supported on a beam at

each floor level. The wall consist of a 1.2 m

height of cavity wall supporting 1.3 m high

double glazing. The cavity wall construction

is 102.5 mm of brickwork, a 75 mm cavity

and 100 mm of plastered lightweight concrete

blockwork.

Determine the dead load on one beam

in kN/m of beam.

(Ans: 4.77 kN/m)
