PDG: Post Design Graph Copyright Prof Schierle 2012 1 PDG: Post Design Graph - tutorial PDG is an Excel program to design and visualize posts in wood, steel, concrete, and masonry PDG requires some knowledge of post design PDG requires a PC with MS Excel macros Enabled Press > for next step, < for previous step Press Esc to end PDG wood steel concrete masonry

PDG: Post Design Graph Copyright Prof Schierle 2012 2 PDG: Post Design Graph - tutorial Stress output C = concrete M = masonry S = steel W = wood fb = bending stress fa = axial stress Input data info Visualization graph Bending (k)

PDG: Post Design Graph Copyright Prof Schierle 2012 3 PDG: Post Design Graph - tutorial Select post material (5 to clear screen) Prior to running PDG Enter design data or use pre-defined data Optionally, copy default data from TU to AB Press Ctr-Shift-R to run PDG

PDG: Post Design Graph Copyright Prof Schierle 2012 4 PDG: Post Design Graph - tutorial Wood buckling Allowable buckling stress F c F c = F * c (C P ) F * c = F c (C D ) (C M ) (C t ) X …… F c = Allowable compressive stress parallel to grain C D = Duration factor (1=normal, 1.6=wind & seismic load) C M = Moisture factor (1 for dry lumber) C t = Temperature factor (1for normal temperature) X = Other adjustment factors for size, etc. per NDS C P = Buckling stability defined by Ylinen formula: c = 0.80 for sawn lumber 0.85 for round timber 0.90 for glulam posts F cE = K cE E/(L/d) 2 (Euler buckling stress) K cE = 0.300 for visually graded lumber 0.384 for MEL (Machine Evaluated Lumber) 0.418 for glulam & MSR (Machine Stress Rated) E = Elastic modulus Wood buckling Allowable buckling graph Horizontal axis: slenderness L/d Vertical axis: allowable stress Fc Allowable buckling load: P = A Fc A = cross section area

PDG: Post Design Graph Copyright Prof Schierle 2012 5 PDG: Post Design Graph - tutorial Elastic buckling: Allowable buckling stress: Inelastic buckling: K-factors theoretical - defined by support types K-factors recommended at Steel buckling Based on empirical tests steel has 2 buckling modes: Inelastic buckling (KL/r < C c ) Elastic buckling (KL/r > C c ) C c at ~ Fy/2 is derived using Eulers formula: For F y = 50 ksi C c = 107 For F y = 36 ksi C c = 126 F.S. = factor of safety, computed as: 1.2 - 1.5 InelasticElastic
