Task 1

Given the loads and required the load combination. Obtain the dead loads and life loads.
Roof dead load: 15 psf
Roof life load
Mezzanine slab and deck dead load: 69 psf
Mezzanine life load storage: 125 psf
Weight of wall panels: 75 psf
Strength design:
The structure, components and foundations shall be designed so that their design strength equals
or exceeds the effects of the factored in the following combinations:
1- 1.4(𝐷 + 𝐹)
2- 1.2(𝐷 + 𝐹 + 𝑇)
3- 1.2𝐷 + 1.6𝐿𝑟
4- 1.2𝐷 + 1.6𝑊 + 𝐿 + 0.5 𝐿𝑟
5- 1.2𝐷 + 𝐿
1- D = dead load
2- F = load due to fluids
3- W = load due to wind
4- L = life load
5- Lr = roof life load
Building description:
This building has plan dimensions of 180 feet by 90 feet and a clear height of approximately 30
feet. It includes a 12-foot-high, 40-foot-wide mezzanine area at the east end of the building. The
structure consists of 10 gable frames spanning 90 feet in the transverse (north-south) direction.
Spaced at 20 feet on center, these frames are braced in the longitudinal (east-west) direction in two
bays at the east end.
The building is enclosed by nonstructural insulated concrete wall panels and is roofed with steel
decking covered with insulation and roofing. Columns are supported on spread footings.
The elevation and transverse sections of the structure are shown in. Longitudinal struts at the eaves
and at the mezzanine level run the full length of the building and therefore act as collectors for the
distribution of forces resisted by the diagonally braced bays and as weak-axis stability bracing for
the moment frame columns. The roof and mezzanine framing plans are shown in. The framing
consists of a steel roof deck supported by joists between transverse gable frames. The mezzanine
represents both an additional load and additional strength and stiffness. Because all the frames
resist lateral loading, the steel deck functions as a diaphragm for distribution of the effects of
eccentric loading caused by the mezzanine floor when the building is subjected to loads acting in
the transverse direction. The mezzanine floor at the east end of the building is designed to
accommodate a live load of 125 psf. Its structural system is composed of a concrete slab over steel
decking supported by floor beams spaced at 10 feet on center. The floor beams are supported on
girders continuous over two intermediate columns spaced approximately 30 feet apart and are
attached to the gable frames at each end.

Task 2
The load case as indicated in ASCE 7-16 is as the following. The all members will be designed
such that their strength equal to the following combinations:
6- 1.4(𝐷)
7- 1.2(𝐷)
8- 1.2𝐷 + 1.6𝐿𝑟
9- 1.2𝐷 + 1.6𝑊 + 𝐿 + 0.5 𝐿𝑟
10- 1.2𝐷 + 𝐿
The roof life loads are determined as Section 4.3 in the ASCE 7-16: 200 psf
Design parameters
Ground motion and system parameters: For this example the parameters are as follows.
SDS = 1.0
SD1 = 0.6
Occupancy Category II
Note that Standard permits an ordinary steel moment frame for buildings that do not exceed one
story and 65 feet tall with a roof dead load not exceeding 20 psf. Intermediate steel moment
frames with stiffened bolted end plates and ordinary steel concentrically braced frames are used
in this example.
North-south (N-S) direction:
Moment-resisting frame system = intermediate steel moment frame (Standard Table 12.2-1)
R = 4.5
Ω0 = 3
Cd = 4
East-west (E-W) direction
Braced frame system = ordinary steel concentrically braced frame (Standard Table 12.2-1)
R = 3.25
Ω0= 2
Cd = 3.25
Concrete for footings: fc' = 2.5 ksi
Slabs-on-grade: fc' = 4.5 ksi
Mezzanine concrete on metal deck: fc' = 3.0 ksi
Reinforcing bars: ASTM A615, Grade 60
Structural steel (wide flange sections): ASTM A992, Grade 50
Plates (except continuity plates): ASTM A36
Bolts: ASTM A325
Continuity Plates: ASTM A572, Grade 50
Structural Design Criteria
Building configuration. Because there is a mezzanine at one end, vertical weight irregularities
might be considered to apply (Standard Sec. However, the upper level is a roof and the
Standard exempts roofs from weight irregularities. There also are no plan irregularities in this

In the N-S direction, the moment frames do not meet the requirements of Standard Section since the frames are only one bay long. Thus, Standard Section must be
checked. A copy of the three-dimensional model is made, with the moment frame beam at
Gridline A pinned. The structure is checked to make sure that an extreme torsional irregularity
(Standard Table 12.3-1) does not occur:

ΔA = maximum displacement at knee along Gridline A, in.

ΔK = maximum displacement at knee along gridline K, in.
