The multi-layer steel frame structure consists of beams and columns of welded H-beams, hot-rolled H-beams. In this frame, the beam-column system is subjected to gravity loads such as dead and live loads. Steel frame structures are now mainly used in residential, commercial, and institutional buildings around the world.
In the construction of residential buildings, the multi-storey structure offers a flexible, reliable and cost-effective solution due to its use of slender floor beams and light steel framing with steel infill walls. They are widely used in the construction of high-rise towers and row houses.
For commercial buildings, multi-story structures provide sufficient flexibility in design and aesthetics. Smaller and smaller columns allow for more space to be built and also for lighter foundations. They are commonly used in structures such as multi-storey car parks, high-rise commercial buildings, airports and hangers, stadiums, subway stations, and train stations.
Institutional buildings such as hospitals and schools often have specific requirements, such as ramps or areas for equipment and machinery. These needs can be met by installing multi-story buildings that offer design flexibility, low maintenance, durability, and faster construction times.
• Multistory buildings are a cost-effective solution due to greatly reduced initial foundation and infrastructure expenses.
• Since installation is relatively easy, it speeds up construction time.
• Multi-storey buildings are very durable, shock and weather resistant.
• Smaller static loads compared to ordinary concrete buildings.
• The need for fewer columns makes it possible to build longer spaces.
• Is an environmentally friendly solution, as the steel structure is 100% recyclable and will not cause material waste and pollution.
• It is corrosion resistant and requires minimal maintenance.
