Load Modelling for Single Story Steel Buildings

by H. Pasternak, Technical Univ Carolo-Wilhemina, Germany,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Safety and Reliability


Realistic load assumptions for single story buildings are thus far complicated by the insufficient state of the modelling of individual loads as random variables or stochastic processes and the works on a procedure which takes the diverse load models into consideration and nonetheless combines individual loads in a practicable way. The Braunschweig research program comprises, above all, the compilation of a universal program for load combination by utilizing the point-crossing method, the modelling of crane loads as well as the integration of known models for other actions. Experiences and initial results will be reported.
