The Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Thessaly has compiled trapezoidal profiles load span tables for our company. The work was prepared by Spyros A. Karamanos, professor of “Construction Engineering” (scientific supervisor) and by Theocharis Papatheocharis, Civil Engineer.
Load span tables are calculated for various steel sheet thicknesses (t) for profiles 39/128 and 42/250, for spans 1 meter up to 3 meters, for three (3) types of static structure (single, two and three spans) and provide the following properties:
- Given the type of static structure and the span (L), it is possible to calculate the steel sheet thickness which satisfies a particular limit load requirement.
- Given the steel sheet thickness and the type of static structure, it is possible to determine the span (L) that satisfies a particular limit load requirement.
- Given the steel sheet thickness and the span length, it is possible to determine the maximum load that the system can bear.
The related load span table is attached, in each product description of steel sheets profiles.
