United States Patent http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Pars ... C540%2C783Ιs it possible to control the elastic deformation over the body of bearing elements?In an earthquake, the columns lose their eccentricity and their bases are lifted, creating twisting in all of the nodes of the structure. There is a limit to the eccentricity, that is, there is a limit to the surface area of the base which is lifted by the rollover moment. To minimize the twisting of the bases, we place strong foot girders in the columns. In the large longitudinal columns (walls), due to the large moments which occur during an earthquake,...

Dear Engineers,I know this topic must have been discussed a lot here as well as elsewhere.But I would like to know any specific thumb rules to estimate the structural steel quantity in terms of kg/m2 or kg/m3 for various buildings like sheds -with/without cranes, pipe racks, heavy process structures etc.Can anyone post any help over this?RegardsSumukhStatistics: Posted by sumukhm39 — Wed Jul 27, 2016 6:13 am
