Design the compression stiffeners, if required Poratl the web welds 1. Fly braces can take many fonns, with the most common being a single angle each side of the bottom flange, as shown in Figure 4. A fly brace to prop the top of the mullion back to a purlin does not really help because of the incompatibility of the slots between the mullion and rafter on the one hand, and the direct connection between the mullion and the purlin via the fly brace on the other hand.

This may not be the case if purlins are used as struts.

It does not apply to internal pressures, or to windward and leeward wall loads. The Stramit tables are based on laps of 15 percent of the span. The roof live loads for cladding, purlins and rafters are specified in the loading code AS As the corresponding accurate factors are 1.

The member sizes assumed should then be adjusted accordingly and the frame analysis re-run. However, theoretical and experimental studies [9,12] of the bracing pprtal beams have confirmed that translational restraint alone acting at the level of the tension flange, such as that provided by purlins, is virtually ineffective.

Some restraint also exists at the ridge but it is safe to ignore this A! The maximum bending moment is lm from the ridge: This is not surprising when it is realised that a uniform load over a full end span would need to be factored by 1.

Sharing between multiple intermediate braces is not permittedbut each bracing force is related to the local maximum flange compression force rather than to the maximum flange compression force in the whole rafter or column.


Although not intended to be a complete step by step design manual, the book presents a comprehensive worked design example which is followed through each chapter. Design diagonal stiffener 5. In this case, the haunch has a fly brace at each end. One method of avoiding this problem is to have the roof bracing bay in the second bay from the end as previously discussed. Alternative expressions from AS are presented later in italics for comparison.

The simplified method is applicable to reasonably small rectangular buildings located on flat or generally undulating ground. The reduction in joint rigidity due to the use of snug bolts could increase Figure 5.

Therefore, the restraint from all purlins within the segment is conservatively ignored. Limit states design – an innovation in design standards for steel structures, Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering, 1 1 Designers therefore cannot readily develop a feel for the axial capacity. Generally, the notation has been chosen to conform where possible to that in the relevant design standard.

This relationship is presented graphically in Figure 6. The terrain near most airports is basically very similar, and is designated as Terrain Category 2. Determine the bolt size 3. Haunches need not be included in the initial computer run as they do not desugn much effect on the frame bending moments. Some designers prefer to use roof ventilators to reduce internal pressures.

The moments at the first internal support are not critical. Check the plate strength 4. Design the tension stiffeners if required 4. Once the first computer analysis is run, the limit state bending moments in the column and in the rafters should be checked against the section capacities to check the assumed sizes. For example, a Grade UB57 with a Ay value of 0. The reduced moment M rx for compact doubly symmetric I-sections can be increased above the provisions of Equation 4.

Recommended load cases for a computer analysis are as follows: Please sign in to continue. Check the need for tension stiffeners 3. First and second eds. In addition to tension forces, roof bracing diagonals have to carry their own weight whether by cable action in the case of rods, or by beam action in the case of tubes and angles.


For interest, a comparison of the calculated section properties and the standard UB properties is given in Table 4. Lists What are lists? Another section of the questionnaire asked engineers for specific deflection limits under dead load, live load, dead plus live load, and wind load.

The final system and spacings adopted for this design example match the spacings used in the previous edition of this book which limited the spacing to mm. The laps can be easily modelled by inserting members with double the second moment of area into the beam system.

The effective length factor k e will then builxings 1. In this example, two segments are used. In this case, temporary diagonals would need to be used so that there is double diagonal bracing at each end until the two bracing bays are connected by purlins.

These problems can be overcome by providing cyclone shutters or security grilles over glass windows and by fitting wind locks to roller doors.

The rafter also needs to be checked under axial load alone using effective lengths determined from the frame elastic buckling load factor A c. The check under axial load alone is unlikely to be critical for portal frames without cranes because they are principally flexural frames with low axial loads in all members.

The steps for the design of the ridge connection in this design example are as follows: Check 4 is done after the fly brace spacing is established and is for a rafter segment with the bottom flange mostly in tension. Moreover, there is the statistical probability that the building will not have the worst combination of windows and doors open and shut. University of Newcastle Library.
