CVEN3302 Structural Behaviour and Design
Assignment 1 Steel Structures
Submission Date: This assignment is to be submitted to the assignment box labelled
“GAO” on 6
th
Floor in CE Building (next to the computer lab) by 5.00pm on Friday 13
September 2013, Week 7. Late submissions will not be accepted!
 You may work as an individual or in-groups of 2 (BUT NOT MORE THAN 2). Where
identical, or near identical assignments are submitted such that it is apparent that one is
essentially a copy of another then BOTH assignments will receive a mark of ZERO
regardless of which is the original and which is the copy.
On the front cover of your submission provide your names and student numbers along with the
statement:
The work contained within is solely the work of ______________________________________
and____________________________________________ except where clear reference is
made within the text of the assignment to a third party.

 Assignments received without the above statement will not be marked.
 If working as a group then both students will receive equal marks regardless of contribution.
 All drawings and calculations must be able to be read without pulling your assignment apart.

Problem:
You have been engaged as the engineer to design the steel frame shown in Figure 1. Beam BD
carries a factored design uniformly distributed load of w
1
*
=10 kN/m and a design point load of
P
1
*=50 kN acting at its mid-span point C. Beam DF carries a factored design uniformly
distributed load of w
2
*
=12 kN/m and a factored design concentrated load at point F of P
2
*=30
kN. All these beams are fully braced at supports. Columns AB and DE are fixed at the base,

and have the same height 5m. Your task is to design beam BD, beam DF and beam-column
DE.
For the beams, load can be assumed to be applied to the top flange. Web stiffeners are spaced
at 1500mm and the stiff bearing length is 300 mm at supports and points C and F.
Show your work clearly and neatly. Make assumptions as appropriate.
