Steel Beam Design

## • Steel beam design is about selecting the lightest

steel beam that will support the load without
exceeding the bending strength or shear strength
of the material, and without exceeding the
maximum allowable deflection for the beam.
• We want the lightest beam because it is generally
the cheapest.
• We can solve these problems with a 6-step
process.
3
Step 1
Identify all loads and design constraints (yield
strength, maximum allowable deflection,
beam length L, etc.).
Step 2
Draw the load diagram and calculate all
reactions.

4
Step 3
Draw the shear and moment diagrams, and
calculate V max and M max .
Step 4
Calculate the section modulus Zx required to
support the applied moment. Select the
lightest steel beam from the Appendix/Table
that supports M max and has enough stiffness
to the maximum deflection.

5
• Step 5
Include the beam weight in new drawings of the
load, shear, and moment diagrams. Check that
the beam can support the applied loads and
its own weight, and that it still meets the
maximum deflection constraint.
Step 6
Calculate the shear strength of the selected
beam, and check that the beam will support
more shear load than is applied.

Buckling related to beam:
(Buckling is the large deflection within elastic limit)

## • Lateral Buckling: Caused by compressive

stress. It affects the whole member.
• Local Buckling: Caused by compressive stress
at any specific location. It affects a particular
location, can also affect the whole member.

There are two methods of design:
1) Load Resistance factored design (LRFD):

-Fy is kept as it is

## -Loads are kept as they are

-Fy is multiplied by a reducing
factor.

LRFD design

From table select W21X44 (Z (or S)=81.6)

20
Therefore selection of W21X44 (Z (or S)=81.6) is ok!!!!!!

21
22
Other factors to be considered in LRFD
• Deflection

• Lateral support

23
Other factors to be considered in ASD
• Allowable stress, Fb= 0.66Fy
• Deflection check

• Lateral support

Design for continuous steel beam
• AISC (ASD/ LRFD) specifies the process of
calculating maximum moment:
• Take the 90% of Negative moment
• Increase the maximum Positive moment by
adding the 10% of the average negative
moment of the ends of a span.

LL=1.4 Kip/ft
DL=0.4 Kip/ft

M (+ve) =wL*L/8

## Maximum moment= 136 kip-ft

M (+ve) =9wL2/128 Negative moment = 136*0.9=122.4 kip-ft
=9*2.72*20*20/128 Positive moment = 76.5 + 0.1*(136+0)/2=83.3 kip-ft
=76.5 kip-ft
M (-ve) =wL2/8
=2.72*20*20/8
=136 kip-ft Therefore design moment
= 122.4 kip-ft
