Rolled Beam Header in Silo

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I would appreciate suggestions regarding the design of rolled beam headers for openings in steel silos.  The header will be a horizontally curved member that is loaded out of plane.  How does one accommodate the significant torsion that results from the curvature?


Thank you,
