The design of steel chimney can be done as two types:

Self-supporting steel chimneys Guyed steel chimneys.

Self-supporting steel chimneys: When the lateral forces (wind or seismic forces) are transmitted to the foundation by the cantilever action of the chimney, then the chimney is known as self-supporting chimney. The self-supporting chimney together with the(…)

Welding of reinforcement bars is a practical means of developing the force transfer required in many connection. The following recommendations should be followed when welding reinforcement to avoid damage to the bars and to

provide the required force transfer: Carbon content of the bars should not be more than 0.5 percent. Use only low

hydrogen(…)

Free-standing retaining walls are constructed in an open excavation and the retained soil is backfilled after construction. Generally free-standing walls are only economically viable on sites where there is sufficient space to compact the sides of the excavation to stable slope.

What is punching shear? The failure mechanism of structural elements like slabs and foundation etc. by shear, is called punching shear.

The methods of increasing structural stiffness of tall buildings are by providing central core, shear walls, tubes, braced frame and double tube. These are discussed in detail below. 1. Central Core: By constructing a central core, the stiffness of the building is greatly increased. A central core is used to house stairs and lifts and(…)

Live loads are different for different buildings and structures. It keeps changing from time to time even on same structure. Examples for live loads are weight of persons, movable partitions, dust loads, weight of furniture etc. These loads should be suitable assumed by the designed. It is one of the major loads in structural design.(…)

Braced frames and moment resisting frames are used in building and other structures subjected to lateral loads to provide stability or collapse will occur. This is particularly obvious for very tall structures where the lateral forces are the most important design consideration. There are many methods available for stabilizing structures as shown below. Moment-Resisting Connections:(…)

There are many advantages of pre-engineered building systems, but all advantages lead to reduced construction

time. Following are advantages of Pre-Engineered Building Systems: Reduced Construction Time: Due to the systems approach, the use of high strength steel, use of tapered built-up sections which are optimized by the

computerized design program and the use of continuous(…)

Strain Hardening

In the plastic region, the true stress increases continuously i.e when a metal is strained beyond the yield point, more and more stress is required to produce additional plastic deformation and the metal seems to have become more stronger and more difficult to deform. This implies that the metal is becoming stronger as the strain increases. Hence, it is called name“Strain Hardening”. The plastic portion of the true stress-strain curve (or flow stress curve) plotted on a log-log scale gives the n value as the slope and the K value as the value of true stress at true strain of one.

STRAIN HARDENING FORMULA log(ø) = log(K)+ n x log(ε) For materials following the power law, the true strain a t the Ultimate Tensile Strength is equal to n. when you plot the log-log plot, use data points after the yield point (to avoid elastic points) and before instability (necking). A material that does not show any strain hardening(n=0) is classed as perfectly plastic. Such a material would show a constant flow stress irrespective of strain. K can be found by substituting n and a data point (from the plastic region) in the power law or from the y-intercept. Strain hardening reduces ductility and increases brittleness.
