Laboratory: Design of Tension Members

Design the web member of our riveted truss (your own choice) are under tension, using 2 unequal length
angles long legs back to back straddling on 10 mm gusset plate. Use ASTM A36 steel, AISC specification
and 𝑈 = 0.75. It is connected by 1 line of 12 𝑚𝑚 ∅ rivets.

Laboratory: Design of Pure Compression Members

Design of the web members of our riveted truss (your own choice) using two unequal leg angles long legs
back to back straddling on a 10 mm gusset plate. Use AISC specs ASTM A36 steel and 𝐾 = 1.0.

Laboratory: Design of Ceiling Joists

Design the ceiling joist of our riveted truss (your own choice) using W-shape specification and ASTM A36
𝐿
Steel. Use minimum 𝑑 = where L is the span of the joist (use simply supported beam) spacing of ceiling
30
joist is equal to 1𝑚. Assume laterally supported.

Given:
Ceiling Load = 80 𝑃𝑎
Ceiling joist = 150 𝑃𝑎

Laboratory: Design of Purlins

Design the purlins of our riveted truss (your own choice) using LC Shape with sagrod each third point.
There should be purlin on every joint and spacing of purlins should be controlled by the allowable span of
𝐿
roof covering which is equal to 1.52 𝑚. Use minimum 𝑑 = 30. ASTM 36 steel, AISC Specifications and
allowable bending stress 𝐹𝑏 = 0.6𝐹𝑦 .

Analysis #2 DL + WL

Laboratory: Design of Top Chord


Design the top chord of our riveted truss using 2 unequal angles (long back to back) straddling on 12 𝑚𝑚
gusset plate. For the load transmitted by the purlins to the top chord, see Laboratory Design of Purlins.
Use 𝐹𝑏 = 148.8 𝑀𝑃𝑎 ASTM A36 steel and AISC specs.

Laboratory: Design of Bottom Chord

Design the bottom chord of our riveted truss using 2 unequal angles (long legs back to back) straddling on
12 𝑚𝑚 gusset plate. Use ASTM A36 steel, 𝐹𝑏 = 148.8 𝑀𝑃𝑎 and AISC Specs. Assume that the load
transmitted by the ceiling joist is 1m. See laboratory Design of Ceiling Joist for uniform load. Analyze 𝐿0 𝐿1
and 𝐿1 𝐿2. (Note: provide 𝑈3 𝑀 perpendicular to the bottom chord which will serve as lateral support.

Laboratory: Design of Joints

Determine the number of 16 𝑚𝑚 diameter 𝐴502 − 2 for each member at every joint of our riveted truss.
Use A36 steel, whose 𝐹𝑦 = 248 𝑀𝑃𝑎 and 𝐹𝑢 = 400 𝑀𝑃𝑎, and allowable shear stress from rivet 𝐹𝑣 =
152 𝑀𝑃𝑎 and allowable bearing stress is equal to 𝐹𝑝 = 1.2 𝐹𝑢 . Use thickness of gusset plate equal to
12 𝑚𝑚, Note 8-joints.
