The following task is to be demonstrated and assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment, may be assessed in a simulated environment provided it is realistic and sufficiently rigorous to cover all aspects of this sector’s workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills and must be assessed in compliance with relevant legislation/regulation and using policies, procedures, processes and operational manuals directly related to the industry sector for which it is being assessed, in a range of relevant workplace circumstances.
For this task you are to complete the following activity to demonstrate your ability to prepare a detailed design of civil steel structures, on more than one (1) occasion.
You need to design a Steel Structure on two different occasions based on the specifications provided by your trainer.
Design of Steel I beam for Second Moment of Area and Elastic Section Modulus:
In this scenario you will be analysing the provided Steel I beam to perform certain calculations on the beam.
Calculate the following for the provided Steel I section:
Provided formulas to calculate:
yc = å Ai * yci / å Ai
ye = Maximum of yc or (d-yc)
Second Moment of area:
Ix = bh3/12 +bhy2 or Ix. = bh3/12 and Ix = Ix + Ad2 Thus,
Elastic section Modulus:
(Z) = Ix / ye
After calculating the above mentioned, please draw another I steel beam in AUTOCAD as shown above and locate the calculated centroid and extreme fiber using
DIMENSION command and denote it using TEXT command and save the file under the name Student name_Student ID.dwg and attach with this document while uploading.
Design of steel beam for Shear, bending and Bearing capacities.
A simply supported beam is constructed using a 360 UB 50.7 Section. Grade 350 Steel. The loading provided is applied on top of the flange.
Draw the Shear force and Bending Moment Diagram for the provided UDL. (No need to calculate the reaction, draw it in terms of Provided W* and l)
Design the Steel beam for shear, bending and bearing capacities.
bs = 100mm
Ze = 897 * 103
Wll= 30.5 Kn/m Section is compact.
Please note that you need to complete this design in a REPORT FORMAT
covering/answering all the questions mentioned below:
On each occasion, work effectively with others, completing the following actions to undertake a detailed design of the civil steel structures:
Finalise the design processes of the civil steel structures on each occasion through completion of the following steps:
NOTE: While preparing your report, you do not need to answer these questions in a chronological order. However, you need to use these above questions as a reference to what additional documents your report might need and prepare it accordingly.
