Hi, I am looking for someone that can solve a masters level steel design assignment. It is a typical chartered engineer examination question sat by civil engineers.
Figure 10.19 shows a circular building required for the fabrication of steel-framed structures and material handling equipment. A moving crane of 10 tonne capacity to radiate from a central support to a continuous circular gantry round the main assembly shop.
You are required to:
Prepare an illustrated design appraisal indicating two distinct and viable structural steel solutions for the building and its foundations and floors. Identify clearly the functional framing, the load transfer and stability aspects of each scheme. Identify the solution you recommend giving reasons for your choice.
Describe, with the aid of sketches, how the steel framework is to be erected paying particular attention to the requirements outlined in The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007.
Design typical structural elements of the chosen arrangements in sufficient detail to enable a contractor to prepare a budget quotation.
Prepare, to scale, drawings of the chosen arrangements with sufficient information to enable a contractor to prepare a budget quotation.
Sketch, to scale, fabrication details of: a principal column on the periphery of the main assembly shop; the proposal for the central support.
The brief contains a plan view drawing of the buliding.
