## Design of tensile members

We have seen design examples to determine the tensile design strength for structural steel sections. Let us explore on how to design a tensile member and learn the simple design

## Design of steel beams (Laterally supported)

In this article, you will learn how to design a steel beam. In the previous article, we discussed the different types of sections used as steel beams. We have also

## Shear lag effect in the angle sections

In the previous articles, we have seen simple steps to calculate the tensile strength of flat plates for simple and staggered bolting using IS 800:2007. In this article, let’s explore

## Tensile strength of flat plates| Staggered Bolting

In the previous articles, we have seen design examples of finding the tensile strength of flat plate with Chain pattern bolting. In this article, let’s explore the difference for staggered

## Steel beam | Introduction, and design provision

We technically call the beam a flexure member. That means it resists the load by flexure action which we can understand with a simple object lying on our table that

## How to determine the tensile strength of flat plates?

Tension members are those which are subjected to tensile force. In this article, we will focus on the determination of the tensile strength of the simplest tension member that is

## Compressive strength of single angle struts

In the previous articles, we have seen design examples for I-section column where we discussed that the design steps cannot be applied for single angle struts. So, what makes single-angle

## Design of a compression member

As a civil engineer, it’s always important to learn the key points needed for designing any member. The article on design strength describes easy steps to compute the compressive design

## Column | Design strength calculation by an example

If you want to know what is column or compression member, pick up the pencil in the table in front of you, now try to compress it as shown in

## Bolted connection| checks according to IS800:2007

When I was in college, I always thought about why we need connections and why they are so important in the steel structure. Now I have the answer to that.
