## Width of the building, w = 24 m

Length of the Building, l = 44 m

## Hence, h/w = 0.265

and l/w = 1.833

Based on the h/w and l/w, the values of Cpe is obtained from tables as noted below:
Maximum Downward Cpe (including sign) -1.2
Maximum Upward Cpe (including sign) -0.8

## Wind Load is included in two load combinations DL+WL and DL+LL+WL

Since, Dead Load and Live Load are downward, DL+WL will be critical for the maximum upward wind force
Similarly, DL+LL+WL will be critical for the maximum downward wind force

## Maximum Upward Cpe (including sign) -1.2

Cpi to use (for upward, use -) -0.7

## Maximum Downward Cpe (including sign) -0.8

Cpi to use (for upward, use -) 0.7

## Wind pressure for Purlin Design -0.090 kN/sqm

Design Calculations: Primary Load Cases Conversion of forces to Normal And Tangential Components

## Spacing of the purlin = 1.15 m

Slope of the Roof = 10 degrees

## DL Normal Component = DL x Spacing x cos(slope) = 0.197 kN/m

DL Tangential Component = DL x Spacing x sin(slope) = 0.035 kN/m

## LL Normal Component = LL x Spacing x cos(slope) = 0.849 kN/m

LL Tangential Component = LL x Spacing x sin(slope) = 0.150 kN/m

## Total Wind Load in WL1 = -1.709 kN/sqm

WL is normal to roof
Hence, WL1 normal component = WL1 x Spacing = -1.966 kN/m
And, WL1 Tangential component = 0.000 kN/m

## Total Wind Load in WL2 = -0.090 kN/sqm

WL is normal to roof
Hence, WL2 normal component = WL2 x Spacing = -0.103 kN/m
And, WL2 Tangential component = 0.000 kN/m

From above calculations, the components of load in the various load combinations are tabulated

Design Calculations: Checking Basic Section Properties based on Section 9 of BS:5950 Part 5 1998

## Check No. 1 Overall Depth <= 100t & >=L/45

Overall Depth 200 mm
100t = 315 mm
L/45 = 122.222 mm

Hence Ok

## Check No. 2 Overall Width of Compression Flange<=35t

Flange Width, b 50 mm
35t = 110.25 mm

Hence Ok

## Check No. 3 Width of Lip >= b/5

Width of Lip 20 mm
B/5 = 10 mm

Hence OK

## Check No. 4 Total Width over both flanges >= L/60

Total Width over both flanges 96.85 mm
L/60 = 91.667 mm

Hence OK

Check No. 5 Zxx of Purlin >= WL/1400 for Simply Supported Purlin and >=WL/1800 for Continuous Purlin

Hence, denominator = 1800

WL/denominator 17.587

Hence Ok

## Result 1: Check for Section Properties Based on BS 5950 Part 5 Sec.9: OK

Design Calculations: Checking Basic Section Properties based on IS 801 for Lip of Purlin

Minimum Depth of Lip shall be 2.8 x t x ((w/t)^2-281200/Fy)^(1/6) and not less than 4.8t

t= 3.15 mm
w= 34.24 mm
Fy= 2400 kg/sqcm
w/t= 10.87
2.8 x t x ((w/t)^2-281200/Fy)^(1/6) 8.810 mm
4.8t= 15.12 mm

Lip l= 20 mm

Hence Ok

## Lip is Edge stiffener only if w/t<60

Here, w/t = 10.8698412698

Hence Ok

## As per clause 5.2.1.1 of IS 801,

f is the actual stress in compression element computed based on effective width

Compression stress based on full width = Max (Mxx/Zxx+Myy/Zyy) for all three unfactored combinations

## Span for major axis bending = Span of purlin

= 5.500 m
Span for minor axis bending = Span of purlin / (no. of sagrods + 1)
= 2.75 m

## Bending Moment Coefficient for Mxx(BMCX) 10

w/t = 10.8698412698

## Hence Ok Design is restricted to Fully Effective Section

Maximum Compressive Stress based on Lateral Buckling of Flange, as per Clause 6.3 of IS 801

Calculate X=L2Sxc/(dIyc)

and Y = Pi2ECb/Fy

Fb, the Allowable Compressive Stress based on Lateral Buckling of Flange is calculated as
X<0.18Y implies, Fb = 0.6 Fy - CASE (i)
X>0.18Y but X<0.9Y implies, Fb= 0.667 Fy Fy . X / (2.7 Y) - CASE (ii)
X>0.9Y implies Fb = 0.3 Fy . Y / X - CASE (iii)

## L = Unbraced Length of member = Span / (Number of sagrods+1) 275 cm

Sxc = Compression Section Modulus of section about major axis = Zxx 53.50 Cm^3
d = Depth of Section = 20 cm
Iyc = Moment of Inertia of the compression portion = Iyy/2 14.6 Cm^4

## Hence, X = 13855.950 (Unitless)

Pi = 3.1415926536
E = Modulus of Elasticity, as per IS 801 is taken as 2074000 kgf/sqcm
Cb as per IS 801 can be taken conservatively assuming M1=0 (end span) 1.75
Fy = 2400 kg/sqcm

## Hence, 0.18 Y = 2686.630

And, 0.9 Y = 13433.148

## Comparing X with 0.18Y and 0.9Y, the applicable case is 3

Hence, Fb = 0.3 Fy . Y / X
= 775.588710987 kg/sqcm
= 77.559 N/sqmm

= 144 N/sqmm

## DL+LL DL+WL1 DL+LL+WL2

Mxx/Zxx+Myy/Zyy 76.858 103.320 71.009 N/sqmm, calculated above
Allowed 77.559 103.386 103.386

## Shear Stress in Web

As per clause 6.4.1 of IS 801,allowed maximum average shear stress Fv in kgf/sqcm is calculated as

Case 1: If h/t is less than 4590/sqrt(Fy), Fv=1275 x sqrt(Fy) / (h/t) 1275 x sqrt(Fy)/(h/t) = 1015.773
Case 2: If h/t is more than 4590/sqrt(Fy), Fv=5850000 / (h/t)^2 5850000/(h/t)^2 = 1547.098
Both are subject to maximum 0.4Fy 0.4Fy = 960

## h 193.700 mm (Clear Depth between flanges = Depth 2 x thickness)

t 3.150
Hence, h/t = 61.492

4590/sqrt(Fy) = 93.693

Hence, Case is : 1

## Hence, Fv = 1275 x sqrt(Fy)/(h/t), subject to maximum of 0.4Fy

= 960.000 kgf/sqcm

Page 10

Report by Madurai ES Consultancy Services Pvt Ltd

= 96.000 kgf/sqmm
Actual Shear '=wl/2 Here, w = SQRT(Wn^2+Wt^2)

## DL+LL 0.75(DL+WL1) 0.75(DL+LL+WL2)

Normal Load 1.046 -1.327 0.707 kN/m
Tangential Load 0.185 0.026 0.138 kN/m

## w= 1.063 1.327 0.721 kN/m

Hence, Shear= 2.922 3.649 1.982 kN
Shear Stress fv=V/dt 4.789 5.980 3.249

Hence Ok

## Bending Stress in Web

As per clause 6.4.2of IS 801 for the design check of allowable stress in combined shear and bending
Fbw = 36560000/(h/t)^2
Here, h/t already calculated above as 61.492

## Hence, Fbw = 9668.699 kg/sqcm

966.870 N/sqmm
Basic Allowable Design Stress calculated earlier = 0.6Fy
144 N/sqmm

## Hence, governing value for Fbw = 144.000 N/sqmm

Already calculated fbw = Mxx/Zxx since Zyy at web is very high (x=t/2, Z=I/x)
DL+LL DL+WL1 DL+LL+WL2
Mxx/Zxx 59.171 99.989 53.322 N/sqmm
Fbw 144.00 191.952 191.952

## Safety Ratio 0.411 0.521 0.278

Max. Safety Ratio 0.521
In summary, Bending stresses in Web is: Ok

## Combined Shear and Bending Stresses in Web

As per clause 6.4.3 of IS 801 for the design check of allowable stress in combined shear and bending
SQRT((fbw/Fbw)^2+(fv/Fv)^2) must be less than 1

In this clause, Fbw is not restricted by 0.6Fy and Fv is not restricted by 0.4Fy

## DL+LL DL+WL1 DL+LL+WL2

Hence, Fbw = 966.870 1289.160 1289.160
And Fv = 1015.773 1354.364 1354.364

## Actual stresses already calculated are

fbw 59.171 99.989 53.322
fv= 4.789 5.980 3.249

## fbw/Fbw 0.061 0.078 0.041

fv/Fv 0.005 0.004 0.002

## Result 3: Check for Stresses: Ok

Overall Safety Ratio 0.999

## Design Calculations: Deflection Check

Theoretical Deflection is calculated as (5/384) (wl^4/EI) for Simply Supported beam and (3/384) (wl^4/EI) for multiple spans

## Hence, formula to use = (3/384) (wl^4/EI)

w is normal component of unfactored distributed load in kN/m, max. of all load combinations
= 1.768 kN/m

= 207400 N/sqmm

## Allowable Deflection as IS codes is Span/180: 30.56 mm

Hence Ok

As per MBMA, allowed deflection from Live load component must be within Span/240

Span 5.500 m
or 5500 mm

Span/240 = 22.92 mm

## Normal Component of Live Load 0.85 kN/m

Hence, deflection from Live Load = 5.47 mm

Hence Ok
