Description

Applied loads. There is one assigned load at Grid A/1. The student is to choose 3 other Grid Intersection locations in the plan view to also apply loads. If a load is applied at a grid load, it is applied at both the 1st floor and the 2nd floor. At all applied loads, the DL is 30 kips and the LL is 5 kips. LL cannot be reduced. DL does not include the weight of the steel.


Barrier Wall. There is a wall halfway between the grids as shown with the red lines in the Plan view. The wall reaches halfway between the 1st and 2nd floor to the Grd. The wall does not need to be supported by the steel structure. But no steel element can pass through the wall. 


Foundation Supports. The student is to use supports at no more than 3 locations of the floor plan at the Grd Level. A support cannot be located at any Grid Intersection that has an applied load. For full credit, all the supports must be inside the barrier wall boundary (or in other words, no supports on Grid Lines A, E, 1 or 5). There are many ways to make this structure work without a support outside the wall, but the instructor will accept designs that do not meet this requirement (but the grade will be lower). 


Requirements of the hanger system. 

1. The structural must not be more than 52 feet above the Grd Level. 

2. All hot-rolled steel is to be Grade 50. 

3. The cross-section for all structural elements is to be Wide Flange sections. 

4. All columns are full height (i.e. there is no splice in any vertical piece of steel). 

5. All connection steel is to be hot-rolled flat steel plate or bar. 

6. Each column base plate can be either fixed or pinned and can have different
