Australian Steel Institute - Design of Portal Frame Buildings
Short Description This popular seminar returns to improve designer knowledge and confidence in the design of portal frame buildings, monorails and crane runway beams. It will include information on loads, purlins and girts, frame design, frame connections, roof and wall bracing, footings and slabs, gantry cranes and monorails. It supports the 2011 edition of Design of Portal Frame Buildings which incorporates significant changes to the 2011 Wind Code. New information on roller shutter door design and deflection limits for crane supporting frames will be presented and there will be a greater focus on practical issues and pitfalls.
