Unformatted text preview: A BSTRACT : In this project, an analysis of a steel structure consisting of a truss and two columns subjected to dead, live, and wind loads was done. Using the SAP 2000 software, we were able to choose the steel sections for the truss members and the two columns. Also, we performed some sample calculations for a tension member, a compression member, a bracing member, a column, and a base plate.

On the other hand some structure materials such as concrete do not have these advantages of steel. These are the names of the most commonly used structural steel: Structural carbon steel (ASTM A36 - Grade 36, and A529) High-strength low-alloy steel (ASTM A572 - Grade 50) High-strength low-alloy steel (ASTM A992 Grade 50, and A441) Quenched and Tempered Alloy (ASTM A514 and A852) As any other material that can be used, steel has its advantages as well as its disadvantages, and they are listed below: Advantages: Steel is homogeneous, isotropic and is perfectly elastic up to the yield point. It has high compressive and tensile strengths and offers significant ductility past yield point. Erection and fabrication procedures for steel structures are well developed and are relatively easy. Steel properties do not change appreciably over time....
