## STRUCTURAL CALCULATION REPORT FOR CURTAIN WALL

Refer Drawing CBBC-DET-01_02_03_04
Code Reference : BS 5950 Part I : (2000)
Material Properties
Specific Gravity of Glass
= 25 kN/m3
Specific Gravity of Steel
= 78 kN/m3
Weight of 200x80x7.5 Channel = 24.6kg/m
Strength of Structural Steel = S 275
Floor to Floor Height
=4m
Thickness of Glass Panel
= 8 mm
Weight of Glass
= 25 x 4 x 0.008 kN/m
= 0.8 kN/m
Area of 170 x 100 x 7.5 Box Section
= 3825 mm2
Weight of 170 x 100 x 7.5 Box Section = 0.3 x 4 = 1.2 kN
= 0.8 x 3 + 1.2
= 3.6 kN
Bending Moment

= 0.72 kNm

## Check for Shear of bolts

No. of Bolts used
=4
Shear Force per bolt (Fs)
= 0.9 kN
Diameter of Bolts
= 12 mm
Area of a bolt (As)
= 113 mm2
Shear Strength of bolts = 250N/mm2
Shear Capacity (Ps)
= 113 x 250 kN
= 28.25 kN per bolt
Fs < Ps
Hence OK.

(Cl 6.3.2)

## Check for Tension of bolts

Moment Resistance of Bolt Group
M= 2 Ft (y12+y22) / y2
y1
= 50 mm
y2
= 150 mm
0.72 = 2 x Ft (0.052 + 0.152) / 0.15
Maximum Bolt Tension (Ft)
= 2.16 kN
Tension strength of a bolt
= 450 N/mm2
Tension Capacity of a bolt (Pt)= 113 x 450 kN
= 50.85 kN
Ft > Pt
Hence OK.

(Cl 6.3.4)

## Check for Combine Shear & Tension

(Cl 6.3.4.4)
(Ft / Pt) + (Fs / Ps)
= (2.16/50.85) + (0.9/28.25)
= 0.07 < 1.4
Hence OK.
Check for Welded joint

(Cl 6.8.7)

## Fillet Weld leg length (s)

Weld Electrode Class
Design strength of fillet weld (pw)
Length of the weld
Capacity of welded joint
369.6 kN

=
=
=
=
=

Hence OK.

= 3.6 kN

## Checking for Shear of Plate

6 mm
42
220 N/mm2
200 mm
220 x (0.7 x 6) x 10-3 x 2 x 200 =

(Cl. 4.2.3)
2

Thickness of MS plate
= 8 mm
Shear Area (Av)
= 0.9 x 8 x 200 mm2
= 1140 mm2
Shear Strength of S275 (ps) = 0.6 x 275 N/mm2
= 165 N/mm2
Shear Capacity
(Ps)
= 165 x 1140 x 10-3 kN = 188.1 kN
Shear Force at plate

= 3.6 kN

Hence OK.
