Plate connection in compression and bending

Recommended Posts

Assalamualaikum, 

Im designing a connection a pipe to pipe, between this pipe i have to add a plate to connect the pipe with welds. How can i determine the thickness of the pipe? Do i just design it based on tension load on the pipe? Cause my senior said that theres an eccentricity and i have to design it to resist such loads, but im not sure. Heres the figure of the drawing.

Regards

Looking at the figure, one cannot figure out the complete load path for a particular loading scenario. So, it is not possible to give a specific advice.

But, the way these pipes are connected, there be moment due to the eccentricity of connections in addition to axial forces. In addition to axial and flexural stress, shear stresses can also dictate the thickness required for the pipe, if the load path includes these forces.

      This article is intended to cover design of piles using Ultimate Limit State (ULS) method. The use of ULS method is fairly new for geotechnical design (last decade). The method is being used in multiple countries now (Canada, Australia etc). The following items shall be discussed:

      Overview


      Geotechnical Design of Piles (Compression Loads, Tension Loads and Lateral Loads)


      Structural Design of Piles (Covering both Concrete and Steel)


      Connection of Pile with the foundation (Covering both Concrete and Steel)


      Pile Group Settlement


      Things to consider



       

      1. Overview

      Piles provide a suitable load path to transfer super-structure loads to foundation where shallow foundation are not suitable - this can be due to a number of reasons like existing space constraints or suitable soil strata is not present immediately below structure. Other uses can be to meet design requirements like to have reduced settlement etc.

      This article shall cover the use of straight shaft cast-in-place concrete piles and straight shaft driven steel pipe piles. There are a number of additional piles types like belled concrete piles, precast concrete piles, screw / helical steel piles etc but the discussion to choose a suitable pile type is not in the intended scope of this article. The article is intended  to discuss design requirements for straight shaft piles only (both concrete and steel) . The aforementioned topic about pile selection is a very diverse subject and requires a separate discussion on its own.

    • I am suppose to design a pile foundation for a machine weighing approximately 50 tons and with an operational loading of 100 tons. 
      I ll appreciate your help in terms of guidance & provision of notes...  
       
      Thank you..

    • Material behavior can be idealized as consisting of an 'elastic' domain and a 'plastic' domain. For almost 200 years, structural design has been
      based on an elastic theory which assumes that structures display a linear response throughout their loading history, ignoring the post-yielding
      stage of behavior. Current design practice for reinforced concrete structures is a curious blend of elastic analysis to compute forces and moments, plasticity theory to proportion cross-sections for the moment and axial, load, and empirical mumbo-jumbo to proportion members for shear.

    • AoA all,

      Is it mandatory to do column concreting upto the soffit of the beam in a single pour ?

      What code says about the construction/cold joint location in column ?

      Majority of the contractors are pouring the column concrete upto the soffit of the beam (full height of the column), some contractors leave the column height about 9" to 12" below the beam level and then fill this 9" to 12" column height with the beams & slab concreting. On one site column concreting was stopped at the mid height and the remaining half was filled on the next day.

      Thanks

      i am facing problems in shear wall design .what are the pier and spandral ?what will be the difference when we assign pier or spandral? without assigning these the shear wall design is incomplete .

      i am taking about etabsv16

      someone have document about shear wall design plz provide it 

      thank you

    • Please clarify the following confusions one by one:-

       

      1. If we run P-delta analysis in ETABS, then should we ignore stiffness property modifiers for beams and columns? I have heard that if we perform P-delta analysis and apply stiffness modifiers at the same time then the moment magnification process is doubled...?

       

      2. ETABS considers selenderness of a column by applying moment magnification factors. If we run P-delta analysis also, does it mean that the selenderness of column is being over-estimated? I mean once the moments are magnified in P-delta analysis process and again through moment magnification process?

       

      Please help me understand the software myth and clarify above confusions.

    • Assalam o alaikum.
      According to ACI 12.5.2,
      development length for fc' = 3000, fy=60000, for normal weight concrete and epoxy less reinforcement, The required development length comes out to be
      for #3 = 8.2 inch
      for #4 = 10.95 inch
      for #6 = 16.42 inch
      for #8 = 21.9 inch
       
      And if in my case, ACI 12.5.3 is not fulfilled, it means now i have to provide ldh as mentioned above. ldh is STRAIGHT EMBEDMENT LENGTH + RADIUS OF BEND + ONE BAR DIAMETER as shown in figure attached. Now my question is, if in my case, main reinforcement of beam is of #6 and #4, minimum column size required will be 18 inch and 12 inch respectively. Lets say by any means, i can not select #4, #3 bars and size of column where bars are to be terminated is 12 inch, how to fullfil this development length???

    • Dear all,

      I am trying to design shearwalls through ETABS with temperature load applied over shell. At various location, spandral section fails in Shear due to temperature and piers (sometime in shear, mostly in flexure).  (See Attached Image)

      Certainly all the problem in Shearwalls are due to temperature. I don't want to increase cross section of spandral or pier at some location just due to temperature load case as it will appears non-uniform with rest of the wall. 

      I have seen stiffness modifier affect distribution of forces and also rigid/semi rigid daiphragm assumption. 

       

      Can anybody guide how to properly design the shear wall with temperature load applied in ETABS or share any similar experience. Thanks in Advance.

      Assalamualaikum,
      Im designing a connection beam to column and in AISC 360 sec J10 there are some parameteres we got to check on the column, such as web sidesway buckling and web compression buckling.
      Ive been searching anywhere in the internet but didnt find any failure illustration of these parameters.
      Could some of you please draw the failure illustration of sidesway buckling and web compression buckling?
      Thank you.

      Assalamualaikum, im designing beam to column connection,
      i wanted to know what are some limit states on the beam and also on the column?
      and also i need a correction in my design, heres what i did :
      1. designed the top and down flange  groove weld to resist tension caused by Mu, Tu=Mu/(h-1/2tf.2)
      2. designed amount of bolts on the web based on shear force
      3. designed the connection plate on the web based on the shear force / axial (tension force) on the beam.
      4. designed the fillet weld based on shear force acting on the beam
      what else i have to check/design?
      thank you
      regards.

      Hi,

      I am designing a load bearing masonry wall in ETABS and using IS 1905 code. After viewing the shell forces and stresses, I know that I need to use M11 forces for the design of lintel/horizontal bands to take out of plane lateral loading. But in ETABS i found that the forces are displayed in a unit of KN-m/m (per unit length). How do i convert this value to the total moment for the design of the band. Do I multiply this value by the shell meshing length? Please educate.

      Salam everyone,
      I have recently started using STAAD Pro for design of concrete. Need help with understanding how to read the plate stress contours to come up with design moment values. The values on the plate read for example 2500 lb-in/in. How do I interpret these results?
      Thanks

      Dear Engineers;
      Is it allowed to use the 2D-plate analysis for the raft??
      Because the 2D neglects the inplane forced of the raft, Will it affect the out of plane forces??
      if yes then I think it is not accurate for the analysis in presence of earthquake and wind loads coming from the superstructure, Am I right??
      Or it just will neglect the results of analysis of in-plane forces without affecting the out of plane forces.?
      Regards

      I want to ask that, in ETABs, when we define slab, I put slab thickness same in MEMBRANE & BENDING, is it right or wrong? and what is difference b/w shell,membrane,plate and thick plate? and how and when we use these ? read out help topic in ETABs. But i could not understand.. Can anybody explain me in bit simplest way.?
