ABOUT MŒVÍR STEEL BRACING FACADE

There are different types of bracing systems commonly used in multi-storey steel structures between orthogonally arranged beams and columns to transfer horizontal forces imposed on the structure. Different bracing systems used in the construction of multistory steel structures explained before for our MŒVIR STEEL Bracings.

TYPES OF BRACING SYSTEMS USED BY MŒVÍR STEEL IN MULTI-STORY STEEL STRUCTURES.

There are two MŒVÍR STEEL bracing systems:

  • Vertical bracing system

  • Horizontal bracing system

Vertical Bracing System for Multi-Storey Steel Structures

MŒVÍR STEEL Vertical bracing as re-diagonal bracings installed between two lines of columns. Not only does it transfer horizontal loads to the foundations (create load path for horizontal forces) but also it withstands overall sway of the structure.

Configurations of our vertical bracings include cross diagonals (cross bracing) and single diagonal. Previously bracings were designed slender and withstood tension forces only, so they did not resist compression forces. Therefore, tensile diagonals provide necessary lateral stability in addition to the floor beams that act as a part of bracing system.

Differential Settlement in Various Tubular Structural Systems

In Tubular Construction, our engineerings recommend that tubular structures can be made by cross bracing the frame with X-bracings over many storeys that can be manufactured by MŒVÍR STEEL. As the diagonals of the braced tube are connected to the column at each intersection, they virtually eliminate the effects of shear lag in both flange and web frames. As a result, the structure behaves under lateral loads more like a braced frame reducing bending in the members of the frame.

Single Bracing Provides Resistance Against Compression and Tension

As far as the single diagonal bracing is concerned, it is designed to resist both tension forces and compression forces. MŒVIR STEEL Bracing elements are commonly design and manufactured to be placed at nearly 45 degrees because it not only offers an efficient system compared with other systems but also strong and compact connections between bracing member and beam-column junctures. If we design the bracing member inclination to be smaller than 45 degrees (angle from vertical), then the sway sensitivity of the structure would increase whereas wider bracing member arrangement provide greater structural stability.

MŒVÍR STEEL Horizontal Bracing System for Multi-Storey Steel Structures

Our Horizontal bracing systems helps with the transfer of horizontal loads from columns at the perimeter of the structure to the planes of vertical bracing. The horizontal forces on perimeter columns are generated because of wind force pressure on the cladding of the structure. There are two major types of horizontal bracing systems which we use in the multistory braced steel structure namely: Diaphragms and Discrete Triangulated Bracing.
