next question enough ! tension structures are more efficient

let me try again let me out of here what’s the problem with compression structures?

next question enough ! Yep! No buckling! Can use all its strength !!

let me try again they may be made of steel but then again they may be made of other materials let me out of here

let me try again they do pull straight but so what? let me out of here

let me try again some materials are stronger in compression some materials are equally strong in compression and tension so what is it about compression that may lead to early failure? let me out of here

next question enough ! it does probably looks short and fat but the technical answer is that it fails in true compression

but it’s not really the answer let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! it does probably looks long and thin but the technical answer is that it fails in buckling before true compression

but it’s not really the answer let me try again let me out of here

the ease of buckling is a function of the slenderness ratio, the modulus of elasticity and the end restraints the slenderness ratio takes into account the effective length and the radius of gyration which takes into account the Moment of Inertia. The greater the slenderness ratio, the more likely buckling will occur. Materials with a higher Modulus of Elasticity, E, will less likely buckle. The more restrained the ends, the less likely to buckle. next question enough !

buckling is not a function of the maximum allowable compressive stress. Buckling doesn’t allow the element to reach its maximum allowable stress let me try again let me out of here

but it is affected by other things too let me try again let me out of here

the Moment of Inertia figures in it but as part of something else let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! you’ve got it !!

think again – why are I-sections or rectangular sections not good for columns let me try again let me out of here

let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! with equal radii of gyration, columns will not buckle in a weak direction. Remember the studs and noggings. With more material away from the Centre of Gravity, the same Radius of Gyration can be achieved with less material

let me try again let me out of here

Where did cheaper come from? let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! both an eccentric load or a horizontal load cause an overturning moment on a pier

while bad construction may contribute it’s not the cause let me try again let me out of here

there is something else which has the same effect let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! the middle third deals with the reaction

the middle third rule does not deal with the forces acting THINK !! If there were several forces acting which one would you look at? let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! since no tension tends to develop, the pier will not lift off its base

the middle third rule doesn’t deal with the overturning of the pier let me try again let me out of here

let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! yes, if the middle third rule holds, the safety factor will be > 3

let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! Taking moments about X 1 (kN) x 1(m) = 1 kNm Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x

taking moments about X What force is causing overturning? What is the distance of this force to X? Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! taking moments about X 8 (kN) x 0.3 (m) = 2.4 kNm Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x the force contributing to the stabilizing moment is the weight of the pier

taking moments about X What force is resisting overturning? What is the distance of this force to X? Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! the overturning moment, OTM, is 1 kNm the stabilizing moment, SM, is 2.4 kNm so SM > OTM so the pier will not overturn Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x

a weight is a force. Forces DO NOT overturn Moments overturn let me try again let me out of here

WHAT????? the overturning moment is 1kNm the stabilizing moment is 2.4 kNm so which is bigger? let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! if the stabilizing moment is 2.4 kNm and the restraining moment is 1 kNm then the OTM can be 2.4 times greater before the pier will overturn

how did you arrive at that? what are the overturning moment and the stabilizing moment? By how much could the OTM increase before the pier would overturn? let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! the total downward forces = 8 + 1 = 9 kN so the reaction must be 9kN Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x R = 9 kN

what is the sum of the downward forces? let me try again let me out of here Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x

Taking moments about X clockwise moments = anti-clockwise moments 1 x 1000 + 9 x h = 8 x 300 9h = 1400 h = 155.6 next question enough ! Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x R = 9 kN h = 155.6 mm

try again take moments about X. what are the clockwise moments? what is the anti-clockwise moment ? let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! the reaction is 300 – 155.6 = 144.4 mm from the centre the middle third is 100 mm from the centre so the reaction is outside the middle third Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 x R = 9 kN h = 155.6 mm

try again How far is the reaction from the centre? How wide is the middle third? let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! If the middle third rule holds, the factor of safety would be > 3 since the factor of safety is only 2.4 we would expect the reaction to be just outside the middle third

let me try again let me out of here THINK !! of course you can ! what would the factor of safety be if the middle third rule holds? what is the actual factor of safety?

let me try again let me out of here THINK !! what would the factor of safety be if the middle third rule holds? what is the actual factor of safety?

next question enough ! the compressive stress due to the weight P/A = 9000 / (600 x 600) = 0.025 MPa The stress due to the eccentricity Pe/Z = 1 x 1300 / (600 x 600 2 /6) = 0.036 MPa Total stress = 0.025 +/- 0.036 LHS = 0.025 + 0.036 = 0.061 MPa (comp) RHS = 0.025 – 0.036 = - 0.011 MPa (tension) Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 X h = 155.6 mm stress = P/A ±Pe/Z Z = bd 2 /6 R = 9 kN 144.4 mm

let me try again let me out of here stress = P/A +/- Pe/Z compression +/- compression / tension what is P (total downward load)? what is A (area of the pier)? what is P (the eccentric force)? what is e (the eccentricity)? what is Z (the Section Modulus of the pier)? Pier 600 x 600mm 8kN 1kN 3001000 X h = 155.6 mm stress = P/A ±Pe/Z Z = bd 2 /6 R = 9 kN 144.4 mm

next question enough ! since the reaction is outside the middle third, we would expect tension to develop on the side away from the eccentric force.

try again is the reaction in the middle third? so what does that mean? let me try again let me out of here

let me try again let me out of here THINK !! of course it is possible to tell is the reaction in or outside the middle third? SO?

next question enough ! since it is the weight of the pier which produces the stabilizing moment, then it stands to reason that anything that increases the weight will increase the stabilizing moment and hence make the pier safer

let me try again let me out of here THINK !! of course it is possible to tell will increasing the weight of the pier increase the stabilizing moment? SO?

THINK!! let me try again let me out of here The greater the stabilizing moment the less likely the pier is to overturn or lift off its base. What contributes to the stabilizing moment?

next question enough ! for 1 m length of wall the volume, V of the wall is: V = 1 x 1.2 x 0.23 m 3 V = 0.276 m 3 the weight of the wall, W, is volume x density W = 0.276 x 19 kN W = 5.24 KN 1200mm self Weight = 5.24 kN wind 0.5kPa R x A 115 h 600

let me try again let me out of here there must be an error in your calculations

a weight is a force let me try again let me out of here what are the units of force?

next question enough ! for 1 metre length of wall, the area, A, of the wall is A = 1 x 1.2 m 2 A = 1.2 m 2 for a wind load of 0.5 kPa, the total wind load, WL, is WL = 1.2 x 0.5 kN WL = 0.6 kN 1200mm self Weight = 5.24 kN wind 0.6 kN R x A 115 h 600

let me try again let me out of here there must be an error in your calculations

a weight is a force let me try again let me out of here what are the units of force?

ΣV = 0 next question enough ! if the total downward load is 5.24 kN the total upward load must equal 5.24 kN 1200mm self Weight = 5.24 kN wind 0.5kPa R = 5.24 kN x A 115 h 600

let me try again let me out of here THINK !! ΣV = 0 what is the total downward load? So what must the total upward load be

next question enough ! taking moments about A clockwise moments = anti-clockwise moments W * 115 = R * x + 0.6 x 600 5.24 * 115 = 5.24 * x + 0.6 x 600 602.6 = 5.24x + 360 x = 242.6 / 5.24 x = 46.30 h = 115 – x h = 68.7 mm 1200mm self Weight = 5.24 kN wind 0.6 kN R = 5.24 kN x A 115 h = 68.7 mm 600 for a graphic method of solving for h CLICK HERE

let me try again let me out of here taking moments about A, what are the clockwise moments? What are the anti-clockwise moments? remember ΣM = 0 (you can also solve this using a graphical method)

next question enough ! the base is 230 mm wide. So half the width is 115 mm. The reaction is 68.7 mm from the centre So the reaction is within the base.

let me try again there’s no maybe about it it is or it isn’t let me out of here

try again What is the width of the base? What is the half-width of the base? How far is the reaction from the centre? let me try again let me out of here 1200mm self Weight = 5.24 kN wind 0.6 kN R = 5.24 kN x A 115 h = 68.7 mm 600

next question enough ! as the reaction is within the base the pier will not overturn

we really don’t know yet we have to know something first let me try again let me out of here

let me try again isn’t the reaction within the base ? let me out of here

The base is 230 mm wide 1/3 of that is 76.7 mm so from the centre of the pier, the middle third is 38.3 mm the reaction is 68.3 mm from the centre So the reaction is outside the middle third next question enough ! 38.3 mm 68.3 mm 230 mm

let me try again there’s no maybe about it it is or it isn’t let me out of here

what is the distance of the middle third from the centre of the pier? what is the distance of the reaction from the centre of the pier let me try again let me out of here

next question enough ! Yes, if the reaction is outside the middle third then tension tends to develop on the RHS (in this case) and if the pier does not stick to its base, it will lift off.

let me try again let me out of here

Firstly, the middle third rule doesn’t deal with overturning Secondly, didn’t we say before that the pier won’t overturn? let me try again let me out of here

for mathematical answer enough ! This is not the mathematical answer but it is the practical answer Since it is the lowest width of a back-hoe that would do

next question enough ! This is the mathematical answer but in practice we would make it 450 mm wide Since it is the lowest width of a back-hoe that would do distance of reaction from centre = 68.3 mm so middle third would have to be 68.3 mm from centre so width of base would have to be 6 x 68.3 = 410 mm 68.3 mm 136.6 mm 410 mm

Think of how wide the middle third would have to be so that the reaction would be within it let me try again let me out of here

that’s the end! zig-zag plan stepped plan attached piers heavy coping on top

you’re not trying let me try again let me out of here

let me try again let me out of here It would be expensive

back we draw congruent triangles. one represents the forces and the other represents distances 1200mm self Weight = 5.24 kN wind 0.6 kN R = 5.24 kN x A 115 h = 68.7 mm 600 5.24 kN 0.6 kN 600 mm h mm then h / 600 = 0.6 / 5.24 h = (0.6 / 5.24) x 600 h = 68. 7 mm
