Study of Equal Angle Tension Members by IS 800-1984 & IS 800-2007

Chetan Jaiprakash Chitte [2]

Abstract: There are various types of Design method such as working State method and Limit State Method. The design methodologies for the steel structures namely, working stress design method and limit state design methods are briefly explained. The latest version of the Code of Practice for general construction in steel IS 8002007 is based on Limit State Method of design. The design concept is totally changed in comparison to earlier IS 8001984 which is based on elastic method. In the present work, the detailed analysis of structural components as tension members is done for single equal angle sections using Limit State Method and Working Stress Method and the comparative study of the same is represented in the form of graphs and tables, which highlights the actual economy achieved by Limit State Method over Working Stress Method for single equal angle sections. The observations made based on this study are very much useful to the practicing structural engineers.
