Joists

43 Steel joists, Fig. 3.8 look like shallow trusses (warren type) and are designed as simply supported uniformly loaded beams assuming that they are laterally supported on the top (to prevent lateral torsional buckling). The lateral support is often proﬁded by the concrete slab it suppors. 44

The standard open-web joist designation consists of the depth, the series designation and the chord type. Three series are available for ﬂoor/roof construction, Table 3.3 Series K LH DLH Depth (in) 8-30 18-48 52-72 Span (ft) 8-60 25-96 89-120

**Table 3.3: Joist Series Characteristics
**

[Design Length = Span – 0.33 FT.]

**Figure 3.8: prefabricated Steel Joists
**

45 Typical joist spacing ranges from 2 to 4 ft, and provides an eﬃcient use of the corrugated steel deck which itself supports the concrete slab. 46 For preliminary estimates of the joist depth, a depth to span ratio of 24 can be assumed, therefore

d ≈ L/2 where d is in inches, and L in ft.

Table 3.4 list the load carrying capacity of open web, K-series steel joists based on a amximum allowable stress of 30 ksi. For each span, the ﬁrst line indicates the total safe uniformly

Theory

Whereas the forces in a cable can be determined from statics alone, its conﬁguration must be derived from its deformation. Let us consider a cable with distributed load p(x) per unit horizontal projection of the cable length (thus neglecting the weight of the cable). An inﬁnitesimal portion of that cable can be assumed to be a straight line, Fig. 6.1 and in the absence of any horizontal load we have H =constant. Summation of the vertical forces yields ) (+ ? ΣFy = 0 ⇒ −V + wdx + (V + dV ) = 0 (6.1-a) (6.1-b) dV + wdx = 0

where V is the vertical component of the cable tension at x (Note that if the cable was subjected to its own weight then we would have wds instead of wdx). Because the cable must be tangent to T , we have V tan θ = (6.2) H Substituting into Eq. 6.1-b yields d(H tan θ) + wdx = 0 ⇒ −

(le Duc 1977) provided an in depth study of Gothic architecture. Structural Concepts and Systems for Architects Victor Saouma . The skillful use of ﬂying buttresses made it possible to build extremely tall. Medieval masons solved this diﬃcult problem about 1120 with a number of brilliant innovations. ﬁrst to an attached outer buttress and then to a freestanding pier by means of a half arch known as a ﬂying buttress. Since the combination of ribs and piers relieved the intervening vertical wall spaces of their supportive function. thin-walled buildings whose interior structural system of columnar piers and ribs reinforced an impression of soaring verticality. separate widely spaced vertical piers to support the ribs could replace the continuous thick walls. The problem was that the heavy stonework of the traditional arched barrel vault and the groin vault exerted a tremendous downward and outward pressure that tended to push the walls upon which the vault rested outward. these walls could be built thinner and could even be opened up with large windows or other glazing.4 The Medieval Period (477-1492) 137 Figure 7. and terminated in the freestanding buttress pier. in which arching and intersecting stone ribs support a vaulted ceiling surface that is composed of mere thin stone panels. The ﬂying buttress leaned against the upper exterior of the nave (thus counteracting the vault’s outward thrust). First and foremost they developed a ribbed vault. crossed over the low side aisles of the nave.5: Hagia Sophia dieval masons’ eﬀorts to solve the problems associated with supporting heavy masonry ceiling vaults over wide spans. These elements enabled Gothic masons to build much larger and taller buildings than their Romanesque predecessors and to give their structures more complicated ground plans. This greatly reduced the weight (and thus the outward thrust) of the ceiling vault. The round arches of the barrel vault were replaced by pointed (Gothic) arches which distributed thrust in more directions downward from the topmost point of the arch. thus collapsing them. A building’s vertical supporting walls thus had to be made extremely thick and heavy in order to contain the barrel vault’s outward thrust.Draft 7. which ultimately absorbed the ceiling vault’s thrust. A crucial point was that the outward thrust of the ribbed ceiling vaults was carried across the outside walls of the nave. and since the vault’s weight was now carried at discrete points (the ribs) rather than along a continuous wall edge. 19 Vilet-Le-Duc classical book.

I could make my own judgements about what methods of stress analysis were better suited for my practice. but never touch fundamental dogmas. my only way to break the mystery surrounding shell analysis. I recalled my old fancy with shells and began to collect again papers on the subject. If a rebel was able to produce such beautiful and sound structures there could not be anything wrong with becoming also a rebel.. I learned later that to express personal opinions is considered bad taste among technical writers. in a fashion curiously similar to what could be expected of the councils of the Church or the meetings of any Politbureau. Therefore. I devoured his articles about ”Reinforced Concrete Design and Calculation” (he was very careful to diﬀerentiate the meaning of such words and to avoid the more than semantic confusion prevalent nowadays in English-speaking countries). In a way. it may be shocking to think of a contractor as an artist.8 The Modern Period (1857-Present) 155 than my bare hands and no further addition to my academic background. allowed me to trust in simpliﬁed procedures to understand and analyze the distribution of stresses in shell structures. with their emphasis on simple statics and their bearing on the actual properties of construction materials and their behavior in the plastic range.

I understand that this was also true of Maillart who in many cases was the actual builder of his designs. there has been a lot of speculation about the engineer as an artist and in some instances. Since I was working practically alone.

When enough concrete strength has been reached the steel restraints are released. it would have to have to be relatively deep (and at some point the self weight may become too large relative to the live load). we would then seek to apply an initial tensile stress at the top and compressive stress at the bottom. or higher grade steel and concrete must be used. 3 One way to control the concrete cracking and reduce the tensile stresses in a beam is to prestress the beam by applying an initial state of stress which is opposite to the one which will be induced by the load. for a reinforced concrete beam to span long distances. concrete is then poured around the stressed bars.1 Materials 7 P/C beams usually have higher compressive strength than R/C. if we were to use a steel with f y much higher than ≈ 60 ksi in reinforced concrete (R/C). 6 There two type of Prestressed Concrete beams: Pretensioning: Steel is ﬁrst stressed. 4 For a simply supported beam. . 2 However. longer spans. deﬂection & crack control.

13. 8 Since the dawn of history. it is often more economical to build a curved structure such as an arch. and there is no shear across the midspan of the arch 2 (nor a moment).2 where the vertical load is per unit horizontal projection (such as an external load but not a self-weight). an arch can be considered as an inverted cable. 3 4 5 A parabolic arch uniformly loaded will be loaded in compression only. Essentially. suspended cable.1 Arches 6 In order to optimize dead-load eﬃciency. however the major (and only) diﬀerence is that equations will be written in polar coordinates. Taking moment about the crown. long span structures should have their shapes approximate the coresponding moment diagram. bricks). 2 The concepts used are identical to the ones previously seen. and is transmits the load primarily through axial compression. suspended cable or thin shells. The basic issues of static in arch design are illustrated in Fig. However. masonary. the vertical reaction is simply V = wL .1.

Essentially this was because an arch required materials to resist compression only (such as stone. but can also resist ﬂexure through its ﬂexural rigidity. hence an arch. arches can be used to reduce the bending moment in long span structures. Like cables. or tendon conﬁguration in a prestressed concrete beam all are nearly parabolic. for spans in excess of 100 ft. 13.

Draft 13. First.3. live loads may act on portion of the arch. a span/rise ratio ranging from 5 to 8 or perhaps as much as 12. then due to the inclination of the arch the actual self weight is not constant. 16 In a parabolic arch subjected to a uniform horizontal load there is no moment. in practice an arch is not subjected to uniform horizontal load. However. 13.2) We recall that a similar equation was derived for arches. it is obvious that one should use as high a rise as possible. However. and the arch advantage diminishes. and H is analogous to the C − T forces in a beam. 14 If the arch has only two hinges. Fig. as the ratio goes higher. 12 13 An arch is far more eﬃcient than a beam. 10 Since equilibrium requires H to remain constant across thee arch. An arch carries the vertical load across the span through a combination of axial forces and ﬂexural ones. then bending moments may exist either at the crown or at the supports or at both places. a parabolic curve would theoretically result in no moment on the arch section. is frequently used. or if it has no hinges. the depth (and thus the weight) of an arch is not usually constant.

Finally. 11 Three-hinged arches are statically determinate structures which shape can acomodate support settlements and thermal expansion without secondary internal stresses.
