MEM1001: Hot Rolled I Sections Seismic Category Classificationlogin to downloadMember Design22-Dec-09Kevin Cowie; Alistair Fussell
All steel members which form part of a seismic resisting frame are classified into one of 4 categories for the purpose of seismic design. Category 1 members are capable of sustaining high displacement ductility demands. Category 2 members ...
MEM1002: Welded I Sections Seismic Category Classificationlogin to downloadMember Design22-Dec-09Kevin Cowie; Alistair Fussell
All steel members which form part of a seismic resisting frame are classified into one of 4 categories for the purpose of seismic design. Category 1 members are capable of sustaining high displacement ductility demands. Category 2 members ...
MEM2001: Lateral Restraint of Yielding Regions in Columns and Beams in Multi-Storey Buildingslogin to downloadMember Design16-Dec-09Charles Clifton
This article provides general guidance on applying the lateral restraint provisions for yielding regions given in Clause 12.6.2 of NZS3404 (SNZ, 2007) to columns and beams of multi-storey buildings. It includes simplification of those provisions which can be made when ...
MEM3601: Deep Rafter Stabilitylogin to downloadMember Design17-Mar-09Allistair Fussel
The New Zealand Steel Structures Standard (SNZ, 1997), in keeping with many international design standards has no minimum stiffness requirement for restraints systems preventing flexural-torsional buckling of steel sections bent about their major axis. To account for restraint system ...
MEM6101: Design Example – Column in Simple Construction login to downloadMember Design15-Feb-12Kevin Cowie; Alistair Fussell
It is common and cost effective to separate the building gravity only steel structure from seismic/wind lateral bracing frames. The gravity structure can then be designed as simple construction in accordance with NZS 3404 Steel Structures Standard. In ...
MEM6301: Design of Angle Trusseslogin to downloadMember Design26-Aug-11Alistair Fussell
Angle sections are commonly used as members in light weight triangulated structures such as trusses and towers. The attraction of angle section is their ease of fabrication, they are however more complex to design than other types of structural sections. ...
