Architectural layout in metal is a layout advisor to the detailing of uncovered steelwork in structures. it's a consultant which deals technical counsel and normal rules, in addition to examples of top perform. It covers all elements from manufacture to detailing, specification of finishes and fabrication, supplying architects, in addition to engineers, with crucial details to notify the layout.

Example text

In most buildings with regular bays, the primary beams support more load than the secondary beams, and are therefore heavier and generally deeper. g. 5 m), it is possible to design the primary beams to span the shorter 40 Architectural Design in Steel distance between columns, so that primary and secondary beams can be designed to be of similar depth. The simplest arrangement of members in floor grillages uses Universal Beam (UB) sections with pinned connections. In cases where headroom is limited, such as in renovation applications, Universal Column (UC) sections may be used as shallow, although heavier, beams.

17). Often, the floor structure can act as ‘plan’ or horizontal bracing, but in single-storey buildings, separate horizontal bracing is required in the plane of the roof to transfer loads to the vertical bracing in the walls or cores. 15 Different overall forms of the frame by varying type and location of pinned connections Vertical bracing The stability of the building is dependent on the form and location of the vertical bracing, or other shear-resisting elements which are linked by floors or horizontal bracing.

5 m can be achieved, if the slab is propped during construction. It stabilises the structural members and stiffens the frame against wind loads. It provides a safe working platform. It acts as a safety net against falling objects. 8 Use of RHS Slimflor beam to support cladding 45 46 Architectural Design in Steel • • • • • To achieve composite action with steel support beams, shear connectors (19 mm diameter) may be welded through the decking on site. It acts as transverse reinforcement for composite beams, eliminating the need for heavy reinforcement in the slab.
