Steelwork design guide to BS 5950-1:2000 - Volume 2: Worked examples (P326)
This publication presents 23 worked examples of the design of structural members to BS 5950-1:2000. (Published 2003)
This publication presents 23 worked examples of the design of structural members to BS 5950-1:2000. The examples include the design of beams, columns, plate girders and crane gantry girders. The selection of the steel sub-grade, the consideration of frame stability and disproportionate collapse are also covered.
The worked examples deal with all the main checks required by the code and point out those, which will normally be critical in design. The emphasis has been to illustrate the points in the code rather than attempt to match practical cases exactly.
In addition to the design of simple elements, a number of frames and combinations of members have been included. Generally the solutions illustrated are aimed at the most economical use of steel but it is emphasized that other solutions may be equally acceptable. No consideration has been given to factors governing erection and fabrication; the considerations of these factors and the standardization of sizes may well lead to solutions with better overall economy.
