Roof Steel Truss Supported on Masonry Wall with Concrete Chainage Beam
This is a CAD dwg drawing for a Roof Steel Truss Supported on Masonry Wall with Concrete Chainage Beam. Steel truss is consisted of SHS profile members. Bottom truss chord is connected with a moment resisting baseplate detail on top of reinforced concrete chainage tie beam.
Connection is achieved with a reinforced concrete chainage beam ( tie beam or link beam ) on top of the masonry wall. Masonry wall is a load bearing wall either with stone or bricks and acts as a structural member for the structure. The chainage beam acts as a good bondage member between the steel beam ( anchorage bolts ) and the masonry wall as well as gives stability and ties together the load bearing wall. Chainage beam is actually a ring bond beam running throughout the length of the masonry wall. It is derived from the french word chaînage .
