  1. Determination of Critical Buckling Load

    Salam, I'm working with EN 1993 and it does not provide formulas or Graphs for the determination of Critical load and moments. From where engineers and designers compute these critical loads if not using any software? If someone has some graphs or formulas for different cases, can he/she share. Many Thanks.
  2. Recommendations for Literature

    Salam, I'm looking for books with steel structural behavior (especially buckling). If anyone could suggest me some of books according to Euro-code. Many Thanks, A.Malik
  3. Free Vibrations

    Salam, How we can simply define a free vibrations in buildings? As force is required to make system oscillate, so how a structure oscillates without any external lateral force?
  4. Difference between tension controlled and under-reinforced sections

    May i put it like, if the strain ranges from .002 to 0.004 then it is more like under reinforced and above it is tension controlled?
  5. Salam, What is the difference between the under reinforced and tension controlled section? Are they same with the exception of strain values of steel.? Many Thanks
  6. Design Theories

    Salam, I hope you all are doing well. while reading, i came across the different design philosophies working state design (WSD), Ultimate Strength Design (USD) and Limit State Design but couldn't figure the exact difference among them. Can you put some light over these theories. One more what is the difference between secant and tangent modulus of elasticity and when to use them? Thank you.
  7. Advice for Ms

    Asala,-o-alaikum, I need an advice regarding postgraduate studies. By grace of Almighty I received an admission letter from Technical University Dresden, Germany in ACCESS (Advanced Computational and Civil Engineering Structural Studies) program. And Inshallah will have admission letter from Swinburne university Australia as well. As I graduated in 2015 and have not landed a proper structure job yet, so i need a suggestion that should i go with masters or gain some experience prior to it? Thanks.
  8. Column Placing/Positioning

    sorry means, heavy beams beneath the pick up columns.
  9. Design of Plinth Beams in ETABS

    Live load factor zero means, in combination we make live load factor zero.? what if we do not make live load factor zero still do we need to increase reinforcement by 20%? Can we said that a simply supported beam require more bottom reinforcement as compare to fixed?
  10. Design of Plinth Beams in ETABS

    one thing i would like to ask, as said by Rana Waseem provide same at top at bottom no matter what the results. One conventional practice is to increase the bottom reinforcement by 20% but why?
  11. Column Placing/Positioning

    Asalam-o-alaikum, I'm working on a Ground +3 residential bungalow. The column position assigned by architect seems quite vague to me and i think that number of columns can be reduced but as I'm an beginner need seniors advice. The attached file is an architect plan. Furthermore, are there any standards for column placing/positioning? if yes, then what are those? After designing a structure what check must be performed before handing over the design results? And any literature about pick-up beams? Thank you, hope I haven't flooded the post with question. arch jawad drawing.dwg
  12. Modes Of Building

    Thank you, I'll study it from scratch and will discuss it again. It is a pleasure to learn from you people.
  13. Modes Of Building

    Asalam-o-alaikum, what the term mode means and how we compute the mode? I've been told that mode is used to determine the time period of the building and the mode 1 has the maximum time period so no need to check further mode. is that correct? and how we determine the mass participation of building through mode? thanks.
