STEEL DETAILING FASTER AND EFFICIENT CONSTRUCTION

Structural detailing produces accurate drawing for fabrication and erection of structures. Easy constructability depends on the quality of the design. This ensure easy and efficient fabrication of products. Errors in detailed drawing will affect the success of entire project. It will lead to increase in time for finishing the work and also will increase the total cost. Most of the structures are pre-fabricated and site erected so small errors will affect the total construction procedure. The 3d technology of steel detailing of Tekla helps to generate a strong communication link between client, architect, structural engineers, fabricators and erectors.

The report of the requirements is given by the 3D software like Tekla. It helps to overcome the clashes and schedule the work accordingly. Technology of Tekla reduces the time frame required for quality construction.  Tekla training institute in kochi

Steel detailing is a vital communication link. Tekla involves creation of detailed drawing for fabricators and contractors. It also includes plans and estimates as well as other reports and important tasks. Tekla training institute in kochiThe structural safety and stability is decided by the efficient shop drawing and erection drawing. It will decide economy in overall costing. 3D detailing give chance to display various alternatives with exact cost estimates. 2D to 3D transformation gave the confidence to complete projects more accurately and errorlessly. It has reduced 75 percent time frame of completing project by using PEB components and custom components. Tekla reports integrated with ERP systems like BOQ, plate summaries shipping list, CNC files etc. are used by industries. Erection sequence based on site condition are also obtained from the detailed drawing.

Cost of manpower has increased at much faster rate than the cost of material. In steel detailing more than one diameter of bolts are designed and used to avoid and reduce gussets and number of bolts. This itself will help to reduce the construction cost and time of construction. Bending of structural beams are avoided by providing connections on bend plates. The increased cost of oil, gas and manpower has increased the cost of hot bending tremendously. Tekla training institute in kochiHot bending of plates are much easier than hot bending of structural sections. In structural steel design lighter sections are adopted by providing more secondary members and also the compressive strength of main members get increased. But also handling more number of members per structure reduces productivity too. It will also increase the cost. While detailing to avoid the delay at the time of construction easy availability and inventory of steel sections need to be considered. The deflection of structure, fabrication, and eccentricity in connection and erection methodology all these things need to be taken care off. This will help in efficient behavior of the structure during construction and execution period.

Steel Detailing & Standards

Structural steel detailing is a vital process of structural  design and demands near-99% steel_detailingaccuracy and reliability .

A tiny error can lead to a reduction of valuable time and money. Structural steel  detailing  is an important and mandatory process in all types of manufacturing and construction activities, such as erection all type of  buildings, factories and institutes, as well as shipbuilding. The steel detail is a necessary  ‘communications link’ that connects key experts such as engineers, designers, contractors, fabricators and others–all of whom are separately and collectively in charge of the highest levels of reliability at each stage.

Steel Detailing process involves two main types of drawings

  • Shop drawings
  • Erection drawings.

Steel detailing standards:-steel detailing standards of different countries as follows:

  • American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC)
  • American Welding Society (AWS)
  • National Institute of Steel Detailing (NISD)
  • Canadian Institute of Steel Construction
  • Australian Institute of Steel Construction
  • Euro Codes and British Standard Codes
