BASIC DESIGN CONCEPTS

LIMIT STATES
Limit States are conditions beyond which a structure won’t be able to
fulfil its relevance.
Two types of Limit State:
1) Strength Limit State
- Stress nearly exceeds or exceeds strength
- Bending stress, compressive stress, etc.

2) Serviceability Limit State
- Occupants starts to feel discomfort during the structures operation
- Deflection, vibration, etc.

First application is in reinforced concrete design. now employed in steel and wood ???????? ??????? ?????? ≤ ????????? ?????? ? ???????ℎ .Stress calculation is based on unfactored loads .Loads are magnified by load factors to account variability .STRENGTH LIMIT STATE Two design philosophies to satisfy strength limit state criterion: ASD and LRFD 1) Allowable Stress (Strength) Design (ASD) .Strength is adjusted using resistance factor (that is less than 1) .Widely used in steel and wood design ???????ℎ ??????? ?????? ≤ ?? 2) Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) .Use of Factor of Safety (FS) in adjusting strength .

BASIC LOAD COMBINATIONS .

SAWN LUMBER vs GLUE LAMINATED TIMBER (GLULAM) Sawn Lumber – directly derived from trees Classification of sawn lumber by size: 1) Dimension Lumber – small member .2” to 4” in thickness (width) 2) Timber – large member . .at least 5” thick (width) Glue Laminated Timber – derived from laminated lumber plates -used when no available timber sawn lumber.

CLASSIFICATION OF SAWN LUMBER Dressed Lumber is surfaced to the standard net size. Rough Sawn Lumber is sawn to dimensions that are close to the standard net size (The rough sawn is 1/8” larger than the dressed size) Full-sawn Lumber is when the actual size is the same as the specified size .

DESIGN METHODS .

ALLOWABLE STRESS DESIGN (ASD) Adjusted Design Stress Values: ?? ′ = ?? ? ??????? ?? ?????????? ??????? For a design to be acceptable. the actual stress must be less than or equal to the adjusted design value: ′ ?? ≤ ?? where ?? ′ = Adjusted Design Stress ?? = Design Stress ?? = Actual Stress .
