How to design web to flange welds in plate girders?
Posted on in MasterFrame
Nearly all plate girders built today are welded. Two flange plates fillet welded to a web plate to form an I-section. But how to design the welds between the flange and web of a plate girder?
Structural modelling with FE surfaces
Posted on in MasterFrame
Finite element analysis is an extremely useful tool to analyse structures that are too complex for regular analytical solutions. However, when modelling with finite elements, the question of how to connect and combine different structural elements, sooner or later come up.

Applying the effect of building height in the calculation of wind loading
Posted on in MasterFrame
Wind action is an important design consideration for most buildings. Several direction and terrain dependent factors are taken into account during the wind load calculation. But how can we calculate the effect of the building height?
