1 . Introduction

The purpose of following calculations is as listed below;

(A) To check proposed grating support system for the platform.

(B) To check the adequacy of the grating for live load of personnel as 5 kN/m

2 .STAAD model and Loads

Staad model- Isometric view

3D- View

Analysis and Design of the grating has been done using Staad Pro as per BS5950 code.
Proposed Grating is Lionweld grating as below made of 30 x 3 thk flats at pitch 30x100.

30

Main load bearing flats 30 x 3 thk ,are at 30 mm C/c.

Dead load ( DL)

self weight of steel structure is calculated by STAAD programme.

Consider Ladder load = 1 kN/m being exerted on the platform respective member.

self weight of grating members 24 kg/m = 0.24 kN/m

Live load .( LL)

Platform load- 5.0 kN/m As required by the client

Load combinations:

Design Load combinations


1.4DL+1.6LL

* Service Load combinations ( For deflection check)

1.0DL+1.0LL

3 . Analysis and Design

3.1 - Grating design

Refer grating diagram above.

Total design load = 1.4DL+1.6LL


= 1.4 x 0.24 + 1.6 x 5.0
= 8.34 kN/m
Grating length = 1300 mm
\ no. of load bearing flat bars = 1300 / 30 = 43.34

Max bending moment in the grating panel =

consider this UDL full on the grating span 8.34 x 1.3 = 11 kN/m

900

Bending moment = 11 x 0.9 / 8 = 0.11 kNm

Moment capacity = 43.34 x (1.2 py.Z) = 43.34 (1.2 x 275 x 3 x 30 / 6)


= 6.45 kNm > actual moment
Hence safe

Deflection check :
360403805.xls
max deflection = 5 WL4 / 384 E I I=67x3x303/12=0.45x106mm4

= 5 x 11 x 9004 / ( 384 x 203000 x 0.45 x 106)

= 1.03 mm

Allowable deflection = span / 200 = 1300 / 200 = 6.5 mm

Actual deflection < allowable deflection


Hence safe

3.2 Chemical Anchor Connection between UC 152X152X23 & concrete roof.

Fx = 6 kN
Fy = 78 kN
Fz = 1 kN

Use 152x152 x20 thk base plate for columns.


It is proposed to use 8 no. M20 HILTI chemical anchor bolts

max tension in bolt due to Fz = 25 /4 = 6.25 kN


Max shear in bolt = Fy / 8 = 78 /4 = 19.5 kN

Refer HILTI chemical anchor bolt catalogue :: HVU adhesive with HAS rod.
Tensile capacity: ( for 20 dia bolts) Refer catalogue:
NRd,c = NoRd,c.fB,N.fT.fA,N.fR,N NoRd,c.= 52.4 kN
fB,N. = 1.16 for C40 grade concrete
\ NRd,c = 52.4 * 1.16 * 1.0 * 0.68 * 1.0 fT.= 1.0 full recommended anchor depth
= 41.3 kN > actual tension in bolt fA,N.= 0.68 for 120 mm spacing
fR,N = 1.0 no edge distance influence
Hence safe (egde distance > 180 mm)

Shear capacity: (for 20 dia bolts) Refer catalogue:


VRd,c = VoRd,c.fB,V.fAR,V.fb,V VoRd,c.= 10.3 kN
min edge distance required Cmin = 85 mm fB,V.= 1.28 for C40 concrete grade
actual edge distance C = 200 mm fAR,V.= 1.89 C/Cmin = 2.35
spacing between bolts S = 120 mm S/Cmin = 1.4
\ VRd,c = 10.3 * 1.28 * 1.89 *1.0 fb,V = 1.0
= 25 kN > actual shear in bolt
Hence safe
Combined capacity = 6.25/41.3 + 19.5 / 25 = 0.94 < 1.4
Hence safe

End plate :
max moment in end plate = 2 x 6.25 x 0.05 = 0.62kNm

Moment capacity of end plate per unit width = py.tp/4 ..cl.6.3.4.3, BS5950-1:2000
\Moment capacity of end plate = py.b.tp/4
= 275 x 152 x 20 /4 = 4.18 kNm > actual moment in end plate
hence safe
Hence provided 4no. M20 chemical HILTI anchor bolts/rod and the end plate are safe.

3.3 Bolted connection between main member UC 152x152x23 to secondary members CH 125x65x15.

max axial force in hanger members = 10kN

provide 2M12 through bolts, BS grade 8.8

max tension per bolt = 10/2 = 5 kN

capacity of M12 bolt in tension = 37.8 kN > actual design tension

Provide 12 thk end plate .. Hence safe

4. Conclusion :

The proposed grating made of 30 x 3 thk flat at pitch 30 mm c/c and the support system
is structurally safe.

Deflections are within allowable limit.

The proposed connections are structurally safe.
