Steel Base Plate in different equipments

This article will cover how skyCiv Steel Base Plate Design is used as support from different elements such as columns, types of equipment, column to steel beam, etc. Structural steel detailing of Steel Base Plate Design is one of the vital roles that holds all steel/concrete members. 

  • As column support
    • This type of support is a steel base plate support of a column (commonly steel). The concentrated load from the column will convert into the uniform distributed load at the support. As illustrate in Figure 1

  • Type of equipment
    • This type of support similar concept to is a steel base plate support of a column where the concentrated load from the equipment leg will convert into the uniform distributed load at the support. As illustrated in Figure 2

  • Type of equipment
    • This support or connection between the concrete column and steel beam mainly resists moment and shear forces. As illustrated in Figure 3

Structural steel detailing will play an essential role in designing your buildings. Which skyCiv Steel Base Plate Design provides calculations in every element such as Anchors, Base plates, Weld, and Concrete. 

From Figure 04, This example of detailed structural steel detailing illustrates the specification of the shape, size, location, and connection of metal beams or columns to form a frame for buildings.
