Product Description

Multistory Steel Apartment/Office Building (KXD-SSB1246)
Building Description
Columns in multi-storey steel frames are generally H sections, predominantly carrying axial load. When the stability of the structure is provided by cores, or discreet vertical bracing, the beams are generally designed as simply supported. The generally accepted design model is that nominally pinned connections produce nominal moments in the column, calculated by assuming that the beam
reaction  is  100 mm  from  the  face  of  the  column.  If  the  reactions  on   the
opposite side of the column are equal, there is no net moment. Columns on the perimeter of the structure will have an applied moment, due to the connection being on one side only. The design of columns is covered in detail in Multi-storey steel buildings. Part 4: Detailed design[6].
For preliminary design, it is appropriate to base the choice of column section  on axial load alone, but ensure that the column is only working at 90% of its capacity, to allow for the subsequent inclusion of the nominal moments.
Although small column sections may be preferred for architectural reasons, the practical issues of connections to the floor beams should be considered. It can be difficult and costly to provide connection into the minor axis of a very small column section.
For ease of construction, columns are usually erected in two, or sometimes three-storey sections (i.e. approximately 8 m to 12 m in length). Column sections are joined with splices, typically 300 mm to 600 mm above the floor level.
It is common to vary the column size within the height of the building, to make efficient use of the steelwork. Although it may be convenient to align the columns on a single centroidal axis, it may be preferable to maintain the same external face, so that all edge details, and supports for cladding, are similar.  The floor beams will be slightly different lengths, and the additional moment induced by offsetting the upper column section will need to be accounted for in design.
Typical splice details are shown in Figure 4.5, when a change in section has been accommodated by a division plate between the sections.

As we have discussed the structure side of a multi-story steel building,now it's time that we discuss about the wall and roof cladding and interior and exterior wall finish and decoration options:

For the panel,we have our latest foam panel,fiber cement panel.Gypsum board will be a good option for the partition wall.For the ceiling,gypsum,PVC or integrated ceiling are both OK.All these panel options are open to further decorative finish option.

If there are restrictions on space, it is possible to use countersunk bolts in the plates, or if the column sections have the same internal profile, to use internal cover plates and countersunk bolts, as shown in Figure 4.6.

4.5.1 General arrangement of floors

Floors spanning onto the steel beams will normally be either precast concrete units, or composite floors. The supporting beams may be below the floor, with the floor bearing on the top flange (often known as "downstand" beams), or the beams may share the same zone with the floor construction, to reduce the overall depth of the zone. The available construction zone is often the determining factor when choosing a floor solution.
Beams within the floor zone are known as slim floor beams, or integrated beams. Beams may be non-composite, or composite. In composite construction shear connectors are welded to the top flange of the beam, transferring load to the concrete floor. Shear connectors are often welded on site to the top flange  of the beam which has been left unpainted, through the steel decking (known as "through-deck" welding). Despite extensive testing and research that demonstrates the adequacy of through-deck welding, some authorities prefer that the studs are welded off site, and the deck must therefore be single span, or must be punctured to fit over the shear connectors. Alternatively, shear connectors can be mechanically fixed (often shot fired) through the decking to the beam.
Precast concrete units may be used for low rise frames, but composite floors  are common in both low rise and high rise structures.
Table 4.2      Typical floor solutions

4.5.2 Composite beam arrangements

Composite beams support composite slabs, which span between the beams. For design of orthogonal grids, two generic beam arrangements may be considered:
  • Long span secondary beams, supported by shorter span primary beams (see Figure 4.7). In this case, the beam sizes can be selected so that the primary and secondary beams are of approximately equal depth.
· Long span primary beams, supporting shorter span secondary beams (see Figure 4.8). In this case, the primary beams are relatively deep.
Cellular beams are more efficient when used for long span secondary beams, whereas fabricated beams are more efficient for long span primary beams, where shear forces are higher. It is also possible to eliminate secondary   beams
by using long span composite slabs and primary beams directly attached to the columns.
Figure 4.7 Typical long span secondary beams (span of slab is indicated)
Figure 4.8 Typical long span primary beams and shorter span secondary
beams (span of slab is indicated)
Integrated beams are a special case in which beams span directly between columns and secondary beams are eliminated. These beams are generally used in square grids, as illustrated in Figure 4.9. The slab is supported by the bottom flange or extended bottom plate of the beam and may be in the form of a deep composite slab or a hollow core concrete slab.
Figure 4.9    Integrated beams or slim floor (span of slab is indicated)
The span range of various structural options in both steel and concrete are illustrated in Figure 4.10. Long span steel options generally provide for service integration for spans of over 12 m. Cellular beams and composite trusses are more efficient for long span secondary beams, whereas fabricated beams are often used for long span primary beams.

4.5.3 Features  of long span construction
Long span beams have gained in popularity in the commercial building   sector
because they offer the following benefits in design and construction:
· Internal columns are eliminated, leading to more flexible and efficient use  of internal space
· Services can be integrated within the depth of the structure, and so the floor-to-floor depth is not increased
· Fewer components are required (typically 30% fewer beams) leading to reduced construction and installation time
· Fire protection costs can be reduced due to the massivity (weight : exposed profile) of the longer span members
· For cellular beams, multiple circular ducts for services are cheaper than rectangular ducts
· Steelwork costs are not increased significantly, despite the longer spans
· Overall building costs are increased by a negligible amount (less than 1%).

4.5.4 Approximate steel quantities

For estimating purposes in the design of office buildings, representative weights of steel may be used for buildings of rectangular plan form. These quantities will increase significantly for non rectangular or tall buildings or for buildings with atria or complex façades.
The approximate quantities are presented in Table 4.3, and are expressed in terms of the total floor area of the building, and do not include steelwork used in the façade, atrium or roof.
Table 4.3 Approximate steel quantities for estimating purposes

4.6 Factors influencing structural arrangements

The construction programme will be a key concern in any project, and should be considered at the same time as considering the cost of structure, the  services, cladding and finishes. The structural scheme has a key influence on programme and cost, and structural solutions which can be erected safely, quickly to allow early access for the following trades.


4.6.1 Site conditions

Increasingly, structures are constructed on 'brownfield' sites, where earlier construction has left a permanent legacy. In city centres, a solution involving fewer, although more heavily loaded foundations are often preferred, which leads to longer spans for the super-structure.
A confined site can place particular constraints on the structural scheme, for example the physical size of the elements that can be delivered and erected. Access may demand that the steel is erected directly from a delivery lorry in  the road. This may prevent working at certain times in the day making the erection programme relatively inflexible. A mobile erection platform provides temporary storage and speeds up  the  installation  process,  as  shown  in  Figure 2.2.

4.6.2 Cranes

The number of cranes on a project will be dominated by:
· The site footprint - whether a sensible coverage of the building site can be achieved, including off-loading.
  • The size of the project - which dictates whether more than one crane is economic. In city centre projects, tower cranes are often located in a lift shaft or atrium.
· Use of additional mobile cranes - multi-storey structures are generally erected using a tower crane, which may be supplemented by mobile cranes for specific heavy lifting operations.
As an indication, an erection rate of between 20 and 30 pieces per day is a reasonable installation rate. With average weights of the components, this equates to approximately 10 to 12 tonnes of steel per day. There is therefore benefit in using fewer, long span beams. Where possible, prefabrication  reduces the number of items to be lifted, and increases erection rates.

4.6.3 Installation of composite floors

Composite floors comprise profiled steel decking, which is lifted onto the steelwork in bundles and usually man-handled into position. Safety nets are erected immediately after the steelwork and before the decking placement. Steelwork already erected at upper levels does not prevent decking being lifted and placed, although decking is usually placed as the steelwork is erected. Completed floors may be used as a safe working platform for subsequent erection of steelwork, and allow other works to proceed at lower levels, as shown in Figure 4.11. For this reason, the upper floor in any group of floors (usually three floor levels) is often concreted first.

Our last concern would be the EIFS(EXTERNAL INSULATION FINISHING SYSTEM).Our suggestion would be the integrated insulated decoration panel because it has perfect thermal insulation performance with various pattern and color choices.
