  • On the development of facade glazing systems for civil buildings

    A comparative analysis was made of the evolution of the development of facade glazing systems in the design of public buildings both abroad and in Russia. It has been established that both abroad and in Russia are characterized by the appearance of buildings with continuous glazing, the production of glass and double-glazed windows of a new generation: with magnetron application of heat-reflecting coatings and with energy-saving characteristics. The shape, size, placement of the glazed surfaces of the facade were determined by the climatic conditions, economic and scientific-technical development of the countries.

  • Calculation of metal corrugated structures as structurally orthotropic

    The article deals with the transition from corrugated plates and shells to smooth structures of equivalent rigidity. An expression for the potential deformation energy of an infinitely small element of an equivalent smooth shell and formulas that establish a connection between internal forces and generalized deformations of a corrugated structure are given. A review of the formulas for the equivalent stiffness of the corrugated shell during bending, presented in the works of various authors, is carried out. In order to select the dependencies that provide the smallest error when replacing the corrugated shell with a smooth one, a numerical experiment is performed in the LIRA finite element complex. A corrugated plate hinged around the contour under the action of a uniformly distributed projective load is considered. The calculation of the structurally orthotropic construction is performed numerically by the finite difference method. It is also established that the monograph of S.G. Lekhnitsky contains an incorrect formula for the moment of inertia of a sinusoidal corrugation.

  • Approximate method of calculating beams with corrugated wall

    The article discusses the method for calculating beams with corrugated walls as three-layer structures of equivalent rigidity. The derivation of resolving equations for a one-dimensional finite element of a three-layer beam is given. A hypothesis is introduced that the shelves fully perceive normal stresses, and the wall only works on shear. When obtaining the basic equations, forced deformations are taken into account, which may include creep deformations, temperature deformations, shrinkage deformations, etc. The solution of the test problem for a beam hinged at the ends under the action of a load uniformly distributed over the length is presented. To control the reliability of the results, a finite element analysis was performed in a three-dimensional formulation in the LIRA software package. Shelves of the beam are modeled by flat triangular shell finite elements, and the wall is modeled by rectangular shell FE.

  • Application of parametric design in finite element modeling

    The method of parametric modeling and design based on the example of a building is studied, the architectural image of which is a set of circular helical and cylindrical surfaces defined by coordinates through functions of the corresponding surfaces in the SAPPHIRE software. Alternative methods for specifying surfaces in the SAPPHIRE PC, AutoCAD with subsequent export to the LIRA PC for engineering calculations of the frame of the building for various combinations of loads by the finite element method are presented. The object of the study is a 360-meter-high building with a hardness core in the form of a cylindrical shell of revolution. The height of the floor is 3 m. Around the rigid shell there are three circular helical surfaces that "rise" in a spiral upward along with the core of rigidity to a mark of 360 meters from the level of the ground floor. One of the most universal ways to create a surface is to specify it through a formula, because you can easily change the shape and appearance of the surface without manually editing the geometry of the model in the drawing. The development of the parametric architecture calls for the creation of new approaches to the calculation of unique buildings and structures, the improvement of software complexes that implement the finite element method, and the appearance of new varieties of finite elements with curvilinear boundaries.

  • To the question of the use of high-strenght concrete in compressed of tall buildings

    The article deals with the effectiveness of high-strength concrete for the design of concrete columns on the example of 20-storey residential building in Rostov-on-Don. The results of the ground floor columns calculations for different types of concrete strength are presented. The columns are presented in two variations. The first variation is 600x600 B25 from the second underground floor to the tenth floor and 500x500 B25 from the eleventh to twenty-fifth floor. The second one is 500x500 B60 from the second underground floor to the seventh floor, 400x400 B60 from the eighth to the eleventh and 400x400 B25 from the twelfth to the twentieth floor. The analysis of the study results showed the technical and economic efficiency of the use of high-strength concrete (in particular, concrete class B60) due to increasing the strength characteristics of the compressed elements. This is also due to reducing the cross-sectional size and weight of the columns, saving reinforcement, causing a reduction in the cost of elements as a whole.

  • Stress-strain state of a reinforced bimodule beam with different fixing options

    The paper deals with statically determinate and statically indeterminate reinforced beams of a rectangular cross-section of bimodule material loaded with a uniformly distributed load. Since for heterogeneous materials, the elastic modulus for tension and compression are different, the work aimed to study the influence of different boundary conditions in statically indeterminate beams on SSS. It is shown that the magnitude of the maximum normal stresses is less than the stresses found without taking into account the bimodule nature of the beam material, both in statically determinate and in statically indeterminate beams. The maximum normal stress and maximum deflection decrease with the transition to a statically indeterminate beam from a similarly statically determined beam by replacing the supports. The method used in work makes it possible to clarify the calculation of strength and rigidity, taking into account the bimodule nature of the material of the reinforced beams, and also to select the optimal fastening of the beams that ensure the bearing capacity of the structure with material saving.
