CALCULATION FOR PERMISSIBLE LOAD OF EXTERNAL WORKING PLATFORM

Maximum flight of frames ˂ 20 nos.
Loading per frame:-

Frame, 10 x 20 = 200 kg
Cross brace, 2 x 3.0 x 20 = 120 kg
Joint pin, 2 x 0.5 x 19 = 19.0 kg
Jack Base, 2 x 4.9 = 9.8 kg
Tie back, 2.2 x 5 = 11.0 kg
Bracing tube, 1.5 x 1.8 x 2 x 5 = 27.0 kg
Environmental, Netting, etc, assume 20 x 1.8 x 1.7 x 1.0kg/m2
= 61.20 kg

448 kg /OK
= say 4.5kN/frame.

Construction load 1.5kN/m2

1.5 x 1.2 x 0.9 =1.62kN / panel
=3.24kN / frame
Total =(4.5x2)+3.24=12.24kN/frame

Total permissible load 10t = 100kN
Factor of Safety = 100/12.24=8.17>2 OK

1) WIND LOAD / WALL TIE

Basic wind speed, V = 33m/s
Design wind speed, Vs = VS1S2S3 where S1 = 1, S2 = 1 and S3 = 1
= 33m/s

Dynamic wind pressure, q = kVs2 where k = 0.613
