Steel Column Design
Steel columns are used in almost all steel framed construction including industrial and agricultural buildings as well as high rise residential buildings and offices. Steel columns can be made from heavy I shaped sections typically resisting large axial and bending forces and hollow sections including circular and rectangular hollow sections. I shaped sections include Universal Column or UC sections designed to resist the forces typically encountered in steel columns.
The CivilWeb Steel Column Design Spreadsheet XLS Suite includes the following spreadsheets;
- Eurocode Steel Column Design Sheets – This suite includes design sheets for the design of steel columns and compression members subject to compression, biaxial bending, shear and buckling forces. The spreadsheets also includes the design of members in tension. The suite includes details of all standard section sizes in the following shapes;
- UB, UC, UBP, HE, HD, HLZ, HL, HP, IPE and RSJ sections
- CHS, EHS, RHS and SHS
- AISC Steel Column Design Sheets – This suite includes separate sheets for the design of steel columns and compression members for compression and compression and biaxial bending. The spreadsheets also includes the design of members in tension. The suite includes full details and design sheets for the following shapes;
- Box HSS
- Round HSS
- W, M, S and HP
- WT, MT and ST
Each of the design spreadsheets is set out in a user friendly format with only a handful of inputs required from the designer. Typically these include simply the section size, loading conditions and some details of the member length and connection types. Each spreadsheet also includes a unique dynamic drawing of the section being analysed. This removes the risk of the designer accidentally choosing the wrong section size for analysis.
The CivilWeb Steel Column Design Excel Sheet Suite includes unique analysis features to speed up the design process. Each spreadsheet includes our suggested section tool. As well as the chosen section, the spreadsheet also analyses the results from all the other section sizes. The best suited sections are then presented to the designer. Using this tool the designer can simply choose the best suited section size instantly without having to try numerous different sections for suitability. Using these tools an optimised design can be completed in minutes.
The CivilWeb Steel Column Design Spreadsheet XLS Suite completes all the calculations required for the analysis of the section in accordance with either the Eurocode BS EN 1993 or AISC standards. The results are shown with a handy utilisation factor showing how much of the capacity of the section is being utilised. Suitable results are shown in green with unsuitable results in red, highlighting exactly where the section is deficient.
The spreadsheets come complete with details of all standard section sizes for analysis. This saves the designer from having to input dozens of geometrical and design inputs, these are completed automatically. The spreadsheets include standard section sizes from European standards and from the AISC standards, in total there are thousands of different sections included.
