What is LRFD? How Load and Resistance Factor Design Works?

Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) is a design methodology used in structural engineering to ensure the safety and reliability of structures. It is an alternative to the traditional Allowable Stress Design (ASD) approach. LRFD is widely adopted in many countries, including the United States.

Limit States in Structural Engineering: Deflection, Fatigue, Shear etc.

A limit state in structural engineering refers to a condition or state at which a structural system or component can no longer perform its intended function safely and efficiently. It is the point beyond which the structure or component is considered to have reached its design limit and may no longer be capable of carrying the

Types of Loads in a Building

Types of Loads refer to the various forces and pressures that act on structures. These loads play a crucial role in the design and analysis of buildings, bridges, and other engineering structures. Here are brief explanations of different types of loads:

Steel Trusses - Types and Advantages in Construction

Steel trusses are structural frameworks composed of steel members that are interconnected to form a series of triangular elements. These triangular elements provide strength, stability, and efficient load distribution in various construction projects. Steel trusses are widely used in a range of applications, including roofs, bridges, industrial

Types of Bolt Connections in Steel Structures

Bolt connections are widely used in steel structures to join structural members together and transfer loads. There are different types of bolt connections based on the behavior of the connected members and the way the bolts are loaded. Two common types of bolt connections are slip-critical connections and bearing type connections.

Factors Affecting Failure in Steel Structures

Failure in steel structures can occur due to various factors and modes of failure. Here are some common types of failures that can affect steel structures: Buckling occurs when a structural member, such as a column or beam, experiences compressive forces that exceed its critical buckling load. This can result in sudden and catastrophic failure, leading
