Check beam for ES/EEC


1 COMPRESSION STRESS

Wgt tot = 22046 lbs 10000 kg


safety factor = 1.5 times
Wgt tot = 33069 lbs
Y c.g = 98.425 in
Ytot = 196.85 in 5000 mm
b1 = 60.0 o

b2 = 60.0 o

h = 8.35 in b1 b2

Fc1 Fc2
h

W1 W2
L =Ytot

Beam selected : H200x200x8/12 YC.G


Properties :
r xx = 0.339 in
r yy = 0.221 in
C.G
A = 9.85 in^2
Sx = 28.792 in^3 0.155
Material : A 36 Sy = 36000 psi

W1 = ((Ytot-Yc.g)/ Ytot)*Wgt tot = 16534.5 lbs


W2 = (Yc.g/ Ytot)*Wgt tot = 16534.5 lbs

Fc1 = W1/ tan (b1) = 9546 lbs = Fc2


Fc = Fc1 = Fc2 9546 lbs

Compression Stress : fa = Fc/A = 969.44 psi

kL/r= 711.743 , Allowable stress From AISC table 3-31 :

Fa = 295 psi , increase the beam size

5.2 BENDING STRESS

M1 = Fc1*h = 79677 lb.in = M2

M = M1 79677 lb.in

Stress due to moment fb = M/Sx = 2767 psi


Bending stress allowable : Fb = 0.66*Sy = 23760 psi, hence fb < Fb ( O K )
Cm = 1
F'ex = 294.3 psi

Unity Check :

Checking against AISC (equation H1-1)

fa/Fa + Cmx*fbx/((1-fa/F'ex)*Fbx) + Cmy*fby/((1-fa/F'ey)*Fby) = 3.237865 >1(increase the size of beam)

Checking against AISC (equation H1-2)

fa/0.6Sy + fbx/Fbx + fby/Fby = 0.16135144 < 1 ( O K )
