Design of an L-extension beam for a reaction frame in the Civil engineering workshop

Emily Catherine Treacy


This report aims to describe the process undertaken for designing an L-extension for the reaction frame in the civil engineering workshop. The process generally follows guidelines as set out in the Australian Standards for steel design. The project undertaken will be explained with background on the testing frame itself and outline the stricter conditions due to its testing nature. A beam, column and connections are to be designed with appropriate documentation supporting the outcomes of analysis. This report will discuss the calculations used to come to the conclusion of the beam and column cross sections. It will also provide some insight into the further calculations for the connection design.
