STEEL DOME ROOF FOR VCM TANKS

Design of a dome roof to shade VCM tanks. It has a diameter of 20 m. The roof consists of two parts; the lower part which is steel columns, and the roof part which is a weld-connected type steel dome with members and joints. The height of the column is 12.0 m., and the height of the steel dome is 9.7 m. The plan and side views of the roof are shown in Figures 1. The top view, side view and 3-dimensional view of the steel dome are presented in Fig.2 through 4.

Fig.1. Top View & side view of Dome roof.

The important loads for dome structures are wind, imposed and dead loads. Therefore, here these three loads will be calculated according to the design code, ASCE 7-98.

Fig. 4 3-D View of 384-Bar Dome

The dead load of roof frame structure (including frame elements, piping for firefighting, roof sheet,) is taken as 1400 N/m.

1.2 Roof Live Load

Roof live load can be taken as 1200 N/m to take into account the weight of the men climbing on the roof.

1.3 Wind Load (Analytical Procedure)

The design procedure explained in part 6.5.3. of ASCE 7-98 is followed. Basic Wind Speed: Design wind speed of storm: - V = 45 m/s (162 km/h wind with gust speed) Wind Directionality Factor Kd is taken from Table 6-6 of ASCE 7-98. - Kd = 0.85 (for arched roofs) Importance Factor I for the building is determined as 1.15 from Table 6-1 of ASCE 7-98. - I = 1.15 (for building category III) Exposure Category is assumed as C from the definitions given in part 6.5.6 of ASCE 7-98. Velocity Pressure Exposure Coefficient Kz is taken from Table 6-5 of ASCE 7-98. The mean height of the roof is 16.86 m. - Kz = 1.13 (for exposure C and 60 ft height). Topographic Factor Kzt is calculated from Kzt = (1 +K1 K2 K3)2 where K1 , K2 , K3 are taken from Fig.6.2 of ASCE 7-98. It is assumed that there are a 2-D ridge with H/Lh= 0.30, 3-D escarpment with x/Lh = 1.00 and 2-D ridge with z/Lh = 0.40 in the general topology, where: H : Height of the hill or escarpment relative to the upwind terrain , in meter, Lh : Distance upwind of crest to where the difference in the ground elevation is half the height of the hill or escarpment, in meter, K1 : Factor to account for shape of topographic feature and maximum speed-up effect, K2 : Factor to account for reduction in speed-up with distance upwind or downwind of crest, K3: Factor to account for reduction in speed-up with height above local terrain, x : Distance (upwind or downwind) from the crest to the building site, in meter, z : Height above local ground level, in meter, K1 = 0.43, K2 = 0.33, K3 = 0.30 (from Fig.6.2 of ASCE 7-98)
-

Kzt = (1 + 0.43 x 0.33 x 0.30)2 = 1.087

Gust Effect Factor G is found as 0.85 directly by assuming the structure as rigid. G = 0.85 Enclosure Classification is assumed as enclosed, since all lateral and upper parts of the building are closed and subjected to wind pressure directly. Velocity Pressure is calculated by using the equation given in ASCE 7-98. qz = 0.613. Kz. Kzt. Kd. V2. I (N/m2) qz = 0.613 x 1.13 x 1.087 x 0.85 x (45)2 x 1.15 qz = 1490 N/m2. (Eq. 6-13 of ASCE 7-98)

Internal Pressure Coefficients GCpi are found as +0.18 and 0.18 for enclosed buildings from Table 6-7 of ASCE 7-98. Two signed values (positive and negative) are used according to the code. Plus and minus signs signify pressures acting towards and away from the internal surfaces. External Pressure Coefficients Cp are found from Table 6.8 of ASCE 7-98. The dome is assumed to be separated into three parts, such as windward quarter, center half and leeward quarter. Three different external pressure coefficients for these three parts of the dome are calculated with respect to rise-to-span ratio. The rise-toratio, r is 9.73/20 = 0.49 for the dome considered above. Cp = 2.75r 0.7 = 2.75 x 0.49 0.7 = 0.65 (for windward quarter) Cp = -0.7 - r = -0.7 - 0.49 = - 1.19 (for center half) Cp = - 0.5 (for leeward quarter) Main Force Resisting Systems Design wind pressure is calculated as follows: p = qGCp qi(GCpi) (N/m2) (Eq.6-15 of ASCE 7-98) Where q = qh for roofs, evaluated at height h, qi = qh for roofs of enclosed buildings, G : Gust effect factor, Cp : External pressure coefficient from Fig.6-3 or Table 6-8 of ASCE 7-98, (GCpi): Internal pressure coefficient from Table 6-7 of ASCE 7-98.

For windward quarter: p = 1490 x 0.85 x (0.65) - 1490 x ( 0.18) = { For center half: p = 1490 x 0.85 x (-1.19) - 1490 x ( 0.18) = { For leeward quarter: p = 1490 x 0.85 x (-0.5) - 1490 x ( 0.18) = { } } }

Notice that all the forces of center half and leeward quarter is negative, meaning that they act away from the surface (suction).

1.4 Combined Loaded Case

Two load cases are considered as shown below: 1. D + L 2. D + Wp (taken internal pressure coefficient as positive) 3. D + Wn (taken internal pressure coefficient as negative)

Fig.7. Load Case 3 of 384-Bar Dome

As stated before, according to ASCE 7-98 the dome is divided into three pieces such as windward quarter, center half and leeward quarter, as shown in Fig.8. Hence, the loads acting on these pieces are calculated separately.

1.7 Analysis
Buckling Analysis option in SAP 2000 is used to perform this analysis. It is possible to observe the reserve of resistance, before loose stability, of the one particular element or the whole structure. The solution is linear, but taking into account the deformations in the dome roofs structure.
