2 Skeleton frames: Assembling Chris Gorse, Joseph Kangwa and Ian DickinsonThese slides should be read in conjunction with Emmitt, S. and Gorse, C. (2010) Barry’s Advanced Construction of Buildings. Oxford, Blackwell Publishing
10 precast stairs are provide a fast and safe installation into the steel frame
11 Lining the building upThe building will twist slightly as it is erected. Before casting any concrete any movement in the structure needs to be corrected. Winches are used to pull the building back in line.
12 As the building is erected it will need to be pulled into line.
13 BracingTriangulation and solid infill walls are used to hold the structure rigid and resist horizontal loads such as wind.
18 Column to column – spliced and bolted connection Universal columnColumn prefabricated with end plateAll holes for bolts are accurately predrilled off siteSplice plate bolted to both top and bottom columnEnd plates welded to the end of each column and bolted together
21 Column base and holding down bolts Steel wedge holds the base in the correct line (position)Base plate welded to column (plate minimum 12mm thick)Steel packing shims fix column at correct levelTemporary bund wall (sand)None shrinkable grout fills void left below plate (liquid grout poured into voids)Void formed by cardboard or polystyrene cones, which allows +/- 20mm horizontal tolerance is filled with groutLarge washer fixed to bolt to prevent pull out
23 Holding down bolt in temporary frame which would be cast into a concrete base
24 Beam connection using end plates welded to the beam Universal columnBeam prefabricated with end plate welded to the beam.End plateHoles for bolts predrilled in column and beam end plate ensuring accurate fixing
