Dear SEFI members ,
I am designing a steel pipe rack that is in continuation with an existing pipe rack. . Now I have to hang a rectangular shaped operating platform (500kg/m2 live load) from the longitudinal tie beam & main framing beam.
The operating platform Top of grating is 500mm below the longitudinal & the main framing beams . Is it advisable to hang the platform from the pipe rack ?
The pipe rack is of a small height of 2.5m only ( single tier) . Column/Frame spacing is kept at 3m (to match spacing of an existing pipe rack ) .The width of pipe rack is 2.2m only.
due to space restriction I do not want to take seperate columns for the operating platform ,it will be too close to the column of the pipe rack ( I want to avoid weird shaped combined foundation also since to present the design will problematic
