6-3: What is the required length of the bronze post if the beam must remain level? The highest design temperature for the aluminum panels is 6-4: A 12′ canopy supports a load of 600 #/f with a hinge at the 200°F. What size expansion joint should be used? wall and a cable at the end. 1875″ Given a value of E = 10,000ksi and Fc = 16ksi for aluminum, what is the maximum change in temperature the panels could handle without expansion joints? 5 Chapter 6 Practice exercises at some distance h above the canopy.

Example 5-3: A simple bay with an opening. Find the column loads based on 100psf uniform load. Include beam weights: wB1 = 20 #/f; wB2 = 32#/f; wB3 = 48 #/f; wB4 = 64 #/f; wB5 = 60 #/f; wB6 = 42#/f. 39%. Tributary width and area can be used for lateral loads that act horizontally against a façade. The same methods are applied using the elevation. The loads are transferred to the column lines resisting lateral forces. 10 limited to wind and seismic forces, but may also include Tributary area for wind pressure hydrostatic pressure from soil or horizontal components of transferred gravity loads.

The all the loads on that column from levels above that segment. façade panels transfer loads to the floor plates. Find the wind This means that loads accumulate from the top to the bottom force applied to each column at each level. The solution is of the column, resulting in the heaviest load at the base of C. shown in the table below. 11 Accumulation of column loads Tributary height Trib. width R 5 4 26 = 13' 2 12 = 6' 2 12 + 12 2 12 + 12 2 3 12 + 16 2 2 Column A Loads 16 + 16 2 Column B Loads 26 + 18 2 = 22' Column C Loads 18 = 9' 2 6'(13')(20psf) = 1560# 6'(22')(20psf) = 2640# 6'(9')(20psf) = 1080# = 12' 12'(13')(20psf) = 3120# 12'(22')(20psf) = 5280# 12'(9')(20psf) = 2160# = 12' 12'(13')(20psf) = 3120# 12'(22')(20psf) = 5280# 12'(9')(20psf) = 2160# = 14' 14'(13')(20psf) = 3640# 14'(22')(20psf) = 6160# 14'(9')(20psf) = 2520# = 16' 16'(13')(20psf) = 4160# 12'(22')(20psf) = 5280# 16'(9')(20psf) = 2880# LOAD TRACING Notice that the interior columns carry more load because the tributary width for interior columns is larger than exterior columns.
