Structural Elements Design Manual is a manual on the practical design of structural elements that comprise a building structure, namely, timber, concrete, masonry, and steel. Practical guidance on the design of structural elements is provided in accordance with the appropriate British Standard or Code of Practice. Plenty of worked examples are included. Comprised of five chapters, this book begins with an overview of interrelated matters with which the structural engineer is concerned in the design of a building or similar structure. The British Standards and Codes of Practice are also considered, along with loading, structural mechanics, and theory of bending. The discussion then turns to timber, concrete, masonry, and steel elements, with emphasis on safety considerations and material properties. This monograph should prove useful not only to students of structural and civil engineering, but also to those studying for qualifications in architecture, building, and surveying who need to understand the design of structural elements.Figure 5.24 Simply supported beam l | D l * Specified dead loads: Point load Wild = 30 kN; point load W34 = 20 kN Self-weight = 1 kN/m; SW UDL = 1 x 9 =9 kN Specified imposed loads: Point load Wii = 50 kN; point load W = 30 kN Ultimateanbsp;...
