A presentation that explains the various systems and techniques of employing steel and concrete to support long span structures. Long span structures in Concrete and Steel Many long span solutions are also well adapted to facilitate the integration of services without increasing the overall floor depth. The design of long span steel and
To determine the dead load value for a given floor or roof system, the weight of all permanently installed materials in a given component are added together. For a floor system you can find the individual weights of drywall, strapping, floor joists, subfloor, underlayment and carpet in an architectural handbook like Architectural Graphic Standards.
Beam and Block Flooring Systems Stressline has constantly reacted to changes in modern building practices and have developed their own range of prestressed concrete floor beams, incorporating flooring grade concrete blocks able to span up to 8 metres.
69 Chapter 4 FLOOR CONSTRUCTION Woodframe floor systems and concrete slab-on-grade floors are discussed in this chapter. Although cold-formed steel framing for floor systems also is permitted by the IRC, it is not covered here; rather, the reader is referred to the AISI Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing Prescriptive Method for One- and Two-Family Dwellings AISI, 2001 for guidance.
foundation walls through connection of floor systems to foundations. Therefore, the issue of system performance is most pronounced in the above-grade assemblies of light-frame homes. Within the context of simple engineering approaches that are familiar to designers, system-based design principles are addressed in this Chapter.
Table 1604.3 Deflection Limits: Floor Members L/360 for live loads and L/240 for dead plus live loads Table 1604.3 also includes consideration of creep in footnote d: The deflection limit for the D L load combination only applies to the deflection due to the creep component of long-term dead load deflection plus the short-term live load deflection.
SYSTEM OFFER Arval building Composite floor systems combine the beneficial features of steel and concrete. Steel is an excellent material for working under tension and concrete is an excellent material for working under compressive stress. If the steel deck is made with embossments, these make the concrete slab and the steel decks
The floor can withstand a lie load of 5 kN/m 2 from blockwork partitions parallel and perpendicular to the span.

selection process. Detailed information on how to select economical concrete floor systems for a wide variety of situations can be found in the following Portland Cement Association PCA publications: 1 Concrete Floor Systems - Guide to Estimating and Economizing SP041 , and 2 Long-Span Concrete Floor Systems SP339 .

Stress created by other form of disruption including ground movement, vibration, deformation or earthquake. How long is long-span for buildings Structure with span larger than 20m can be regarded as long span structure

For example: a floor joist appropriately selected to span 10 feet with an L/360 limit will deflect no more than 120"/360 = 1/3 inches under maximum design loads. Drywall attached to the underside of this system is not expected to crack when the floor joist system deflects 1/3".
In vertical slip forming the concrete form may be surrounded by a platform on which workers stand, placing steel reinforcing rods into the concrete and ensuring a smooth pour. Together, the concrete form and working platform are raised by means of hydraulic jacks. Generally, the
A COMPOSITE STRUCTURAL STEEL AND PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BEAM FOR BUILDING FLOOR SYSTEMS Nathan Jon deWit, M.S. University of Nebraska, 2012 Adviser: George Morcous Precast prestressed concrete beams, such as rectangular and inverted tee beam, currently used in residential and commercial buildings are deep, heavy, and limited to
Stress Skinned Floor Cassette System High Performance Span Capabilities Fast Installation is a unique cassette type floor system developed in conjunction with professional Structural Timber Engineers from New flooring - Custom designs will allow for larger spans if required.
Overall Floor Depth The overall depth of the flooring system will vary depending on the concrete topping thickness typically a minimum of 65 mm .SPAN STRESS FLOOR SLAB Fire Resistance Rating 2400 wide unit = 90 minutes.
As machine stress-rated MSR lumber becomes easier to obtain, it may be specified for floor systems. Using MSR joists instead of S-P-F will result in an increase of about 9% in the allowable vibration-controlled span. Glue subfloor and/or use thicker panels. The floor joists and the subfloor act as a system.
floor truss chord; typically roof live load is snow, while floor live loads are furniture, human occupancy, storage. Load-Bearing WallA wall specifically designed to transfer a roof load and/or upper floor load into the foundation. Machine Stress Rated Lumber MSR Lumber which has been individually tested by a machine at the lumber mill to
LIMITATIONS OF SYSTEM. There are limitations on the use of the plank-and-beam system, but they are readily resolved through careful study in the planning stage. When this is done the parts of the house fit together very quickly and easily. The plank floors are designed for moderate uniform loads and are not intended to carry heavy concentrated
