5 Floor System Types — Truss Joist Floor Framing

6 Floor System Types — Post and Beam Floor Framing

7 Design Criteria for Structural Loading §Load Types l Dead loads l Live loads l Dynamic loads

8 Dead Loads §Definition: (DL) loads that make up the actual weight of the structure, such as walls, floors, roofs and any permanently fixed loads such as furnace, air conditioner or other service equipment. Materials that make up the walls, such as, studs, plywood, insulation, sheet rock, nails, glue, etc. are DL. §Building codes specify a minimum of 10#/sq ft for floors and ceilings, DL = 10#/sqft

9 Live Loads §Definition: (LL) loads that are fluctuating and changing through the use of the building. These loads include: people, furniture, and exterior weather related items such as, ice, snow, rain, etc. § Building codes specify the amount of live load upon type of use or occupancy. Codes differ, common residential LL = 40#/sq ft

10 Dynamic Loads §Definition : loads imposed on the structure by outside natural forces, such as wind and earthquake. §Wind loads l Shear wall design used to resist wind pressure l Uplift forces placed upon the roof §Earthquake loads l Seismic loads causing lateral forces on entire structure

11 Typical Loads for Residential Construction See Text

12 Framing Spacing Practices §Code based, acceptance varies §Spacing Options l 12” OC l 16” OC l 19.2” OC l 24” OC Common Spacing

13 Load Consideration for one Joist §Considering 12” OC joist spacing §Considering 16” OC joist spacing §Considering 19.2” OC joist spacing §Considering 24” OC joist spacing 16” 12’-0” SPAN 1’ X 15’ = 15 SQFT X 50 = 750# 12” 15’-0” SPAN 19.2” 18’-0” SPAN 24” 10’-0” SPAN 1.33’ X 12’ = SQFT X 50 = 798# 1.6’ X 18’ = 28.8 SQFT X 50 = 1440# 2’ X 10’ = 20 SQFT X 50 = 1000#

14 Sizing Joist Using Span Tables §Loading reactions of wood members l For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, creates a “state of rest” Two types of actions or stresses l Fiber Bending Stress (Fb)--a bending stress l Modulus of Elasticity (E)--stiffness of structure considered as the deflection or amount of sag when structural members are given a load. §Deflection Allowances (Stiffness) §Floor = 1/360 §Roof = 1/240

15 Table Values §Look up values for lumber type & grade l Normal Duration for fiber stress (Fb) Typical consideration for floor loads l Modulus of Elasticity (E) §See Text Fb = fiber stress in bending E = Modulus of Elasticity (Stiffness)

16 Construction Lumber Considerations — Wood Type & Quality §Wood Type Available in Area l Douglas Fir-Larch (North) l Hemlock-Fir (North) l Spruce-Pine-Fir (North) l Southern Pine §Wood Quality or Grade Value l Select Structural (Best) l No. 1/No. 2 (Normally specified) l No. 3 (Worst)

17 EFb DOUGLAS FIR-LARCH Required: Find the Fiber Stress in Bending and the Modulus of Elasticity of a 2x8 Douglas fir-Larch for grade No.1/No.2 (see text)

18 Hem-Fir FbE Required: Find the Fiber Stress in Bending and the Modulus of Elasticity of a 2x10 Hemlock-Fir for grade No.1/No.2

19 See Text Problem #1: Span = 11’-8” Hem-Fir 1st Step--find E: E = Solution = (E controls failure-- all fits) Joist Sizing & Spacing Value is under 1,380 so it works! 2nd Step--Use E and find size to fit span 3rd Step--find Fb value (2x8): Fb = 1,380 4th Step--determine if Fb works with E *

20 See Text 1 4 Problem #2: Span = 14’-9” Douglas Fir 1st Step--find E: E = 1.6 Solution: 16 OC(Fb is tendency to failure) Joist Sizing & Spacing 2nd Step--Use E and find sizes to fit span 3rd Step--find Fb value (2x10): Fb = 1,045 4th Step- determine if Fb works with E Value is over 1045 it 4 doesn’t work! 5th Step-- using Fb find working column 5 5 2

21 Span Table (not in text) §Loads l 40 LL l 10 DL §1--Lumber type §2--Lumber grade §3-Spacing §4--Span Solution: DF 16” OC will span 14’- 11”

22 Handout on Structural Analysis #1 §Use both charts in text §Remember that if all values in the “E” column apply and work then the modulus of Elasticity is the tendency of failure §If values are adjusted in the Fb row then the Fiber stress in bending is the tendency of failure


24 Anything wrong here?

25 Beam Types §1--Solid timber beam §2--Built-up dimensional lumber beam §3--Glued Laminated beam §4--Parallel strand lumber beam (PSL) §5--Laminated veneer lumber beam (LVL) §6--Truss I-Joist beam §7--Box or Plywood beam §8--Flitch beam (wood and steel) §9--Steel beams

26 Beam Type—Solid Lumber Beam

27 Beam Type—Built-up Dimensional Lumber Beam §Dimensional lumber (2x6, 2x8, 2x10, 2x12) nailed and/or glued together §Vertical placement

28 Beam and Joist Attached with joist hangers §Joist are attached to beams with metal joist hangers §What type of beam is shown?

29 Beam Type — Glued Laminated §Dimensional lumber placed horizontally and glued together

30 Beam Type — Parallel Strand Lumber Beam §See classroom example

31 Beam Type — Laminated Veneer Lumber Beam §Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) §Made of ultrasonically graded douglas fir veneers with exterior adhesives under heat and pressure §1 3/4” wide x (5 1/2 to 18”) depth

32 Beam Type — Truss I-Joist Beam §Laminated or Solid wood (top and bottom chords) §OSB or Plywood web

33 Beam Type — Box or Plywood Beam 12” or 16” structure with plywood skin §Designed by architect or engineer

34 Beam Type — Flitch Beam §A sandwich of wood and steel

35 Beam Type — Steel Beams §S shape (American Standard shape) l Often called an I-beam §W & M shapes l Wide flange design §C shape §Channel shape S-- I Shape W or M Shape C--Channel Shape

36 Beam Type — Steel Beams §Drawing Callouts: l Shape, Nominal height x Weight/foot l Example: W10x25

37 Reaction §Reaction is the portion of the load that is transferred to the bearing points of the beam §A simple beam reaction to a load would be at the end supports. Each end would support or be required to carry half the total load

38 Calculating the Reactions of a Beam  Total load on beam should equal reaction loads: 25 x 900 = 22500#  R1 = 15/2 x 900# = 6750#  R2 = 10/2 x 900# = 4500#  R3 = (15/2 + 10/2) x 900 =11250# R2R3R1 W = 900 #/ linear foot Span = 15’-0” Span = 10’-0” Reaction formula R = wl 2 W = uniform load l = length of span

39 Simple Beam Design §Simple beam has a uniform load evenly distributed over the entire length of the beam and is supported at each end. §Uniform load = equal weight applied to each foot of beam

40 Simple Beam Design §Terminology l Joist/Rafter l Beam/Girder l Post/Column l Span l Tributary area §Conditions of Design l Uniform load over length of beam l Beam supported at each end Beam span Tributary area of beam 15’-0”

41 Simple Beam Design §Tributary area l 16’ x 15’ = 240 sq ft §Total Load on Beam l 240 x 50#/sq ft = 12,000# §Load at each supporting end l 12,000/2 = 6000# Beam span Tributary area of beam 15’-0”

42 Determine the size of a Solid Wood Beam using Span Table §1)Determine the tributary area and calculate the total load (W) for the beam 10 x 12 x 63 = 7560 TLD §Select beam size from table 12’-0” 10’-0” BEAM 20’-0” LL = 50# DL = 13#

43 7560 TLD w/ span of 12’  Solution = 4 x 14 Beam

44 Reading the Steel Table §Table values of load are given in kips l 1 kip = 1000 lbs §Shape and nominal size across the top §Weight per foot is given below designation §Span is located along the left side of table

45 Example of Using Steel Table  Calculate load: 18 x 30 x 60 = TLD  Select Beam W18 x 40 30’-0” 18’-0” BEAM

52 Load Considerations §First floor loads (DL + LL) = 50#/sq ft §First floor partitions (DL) = 10#/sq ft §Second floor loads (DL + LL) = 50#/sq ft §Second floor partitions (DL) = 10#/sq ft §If Truss design no loads on interior structure(DL) §If rafter/ceiling joist design (DL) = 20#/sq ft §Roof load regionally varies (LL) = 20-50#/sq ft

53 Beam Sizing and Post Spacing Trial & Error Method 1--Locate tributary area 2--Determine various conditions placing post to shorten the beam span 3--Go to tables & choose beam 4--Smaller beams are less expensive and usually better
