Using the design data determine the loads imposed on the Podium beams, apply the relevant safety factors and calculate the bending moments and shear forces for your design scheme.

Evaluate how maximum bending moments determines steel beam selection using the relevant Euro codes and approved documents in terms of economics and safety.

Total UDL on beam to be determined

1/3L

Beam span L = 6.0

Total UDL on beam to be determined

b) Podium central beam B– supporting Pods

Beam span L = 6.00

c) Podium Perimeter beam C – supporting Pod

Total UDL on beam to be determined

Beam span L = 6.0m

Key

L – Beam spa

To ensure that the beam deflections are within acceptable limits as set out in the design codes. You are to ascertain the beam deflections and how this will affect structural stability, different support methods that can be used and their effect on the deflection.

Using the relevant design codes determine the size and the load capacity of columns at the beam supports in both steel and concrete and assess the most effective support method in terms of ease and speed of construction, economics, safety and environmental factors.

Structural Proposal

You are to produce your specific structural design solution for the Podium structure which should include the following drawings;

• Column layout plan.
• Building section showing foundations, column and beams sizes that form the Podium structure
• Beam-column connection details.

Drawings can be hand drawn or produced in CAD software and submitted on a minimum of A4- sized sheets. Drawings must include a title block and be numbered according to industry standard practice.

The following written submissions are required:

• Report on the benefits or drawbacks of an alternative structural solution, utilising a different material (e.g. if your proposed design is for a steel structure, your report should consider reinforced concrete). Your evaluation should include calculations and diagrams as necessary to support your position.
• Report and recommendations on how BIM may benefit the project team in terms of the production and management of information, and collaboration with other professions.

This should consider the benefits and challenges associated with BIM for civil/structural engineering.
