Assignment # 3
Load Distribution

Model Answer

Make the load distribution for the given beams and girder (slab thickness t s = 140mm).

Live load: p = 1.0 kN/m2 Flooring: g = 1.0 kN/m2

Own weight of girder: gG = 5.0 kN/m Own weight of beams: gB = 2.0 kN/m

Comments:
1. It was not required to consider dead load and live load separately to get the full mark
2. Alternatively for the main girder the triangular load below the girder can be considered using factors Ce
and Ce (this would result in different diagrams for bending and shear)
