The bolsters as shown under the ends of the cantilever girders consist of a row of plate girders 2 ft. The inside of offices are lighted from a large open court on the south side of the building, thus giving every office abundant light and air. Better quality of life within the built facilities is achieved with the energy efficiency and at the same time the value of buildings increases. The ends of all beams and girders are to be riveted to these brackets with two j-in. One of each set of doors is to be stationary and the other door is to be hung on overhead bronze anti-friction sheaves on steel ways, provided with guard-rails, and the lower part is to have proper guides ; the doors are to be fastened with extra heavy polished bronze latches of special make and extra strong, striking plates and buffers with rubber heads ; all to be put up complete in every respect. Some of the sections are of an enormous size and we-ight. The panels above the transoms are to have panels of wrought-iron grille-work, made of wrought-iron frames to be of J in.
The enormous weight referred to above could not be safely carried on the natural soil, upon which this site, which is es- sentially of mud and quicksand to the bed-rock. As our survey, we found that there is only one 24 hours Mini Mart in the campus area which is stated at Scholar Inn. The places where the horizontal girders meet the vertical columns signal new floors. Connecting wall panels to skeletal structure Connecting wall panels to beams and columns Connecting roof wall panel to roof slabs, showing layers of concrete and insulation. The continuation of the main stairs is constructed of cast- iron strings, cast-iron ornamental risers with marble treads and guarded by ornamental wrought-iron railings. From the above system of bracing we find that every weight caused by the horizontal wind-pressure against a building is transmitted through its own system of triangles to the base or foundation.
Arrangement of Beams and Girders. . Sand well cemented with clay and compacted, if protected from water, will safely carry 4 to 6 tons per square foot. Chicago's Practice Relating to the Calculations of the Dead and Live Load upon the Floors. A good coat of the best light boiled linseed oil is to be applied to all surfaces in contact before they are riveted together.
The building covers four city lots, with a frontage on Fifth Avenue of 100 feet, and a depth on Fifty-ninth Street of 125 feet, with a cellar and basement below the sidewalk, and seven- teen stories above ; the four upper stories of which are in the angle or slope of the roof, thus somewhat reducing the height of the structure. All beams, girders, and lintels are to be set level, and the beams and girders of the staircase opening, shafts, and well-holes are to be set plumb over one another. The starts of all staircases, where directed, are to have moulded and cast-iron jib panels, vertical panels, and soffits, as shown and as directed. Provide for the mason 20 anchors for each story from ground floor to the I3th story, for anchoring the exterior circu- lar wall to the interior piers, these anchors are each to be about 8 ft. In joining the columns with each other, with the floor girders and the curtain-wall girders, sim- plicity of design was again considered ; also a rigid connection. All to be made perfectly water-tight. By referring to the detail of column, Fig.

Indiana limestone effectively carved and wrought is carried up four stories; above the fourth story the building is finished in light gray brick, with terra-cotta ornamentation. If the fire-proof covering is made of porous terra cotta, it shall consist of at least two layers not less than 2 inches thick each. For the largest and tallest buildings, diagonal girders are added for extra support. It is also believed that it will stiffen the building more than any system of tension rods against the minor vibrations to which Chicago buildings in par- ticular are subjected. This air-lock is a small cham- ber provided at each end with a door, these doors opening in- wardly toward the inside of the caisson.
Our steel system combines the advantages of a post-and-beam structure with an integrated solution for the entire thermal envelope. The beam girder, as previously mentioned for the support of the walls enclosing the upper stories, is shown in detail, Fig. Skeletal building structures are formed by riveting together steel support beams and girders. Sheet steel is then into the final profiles used for framing. The size used, however, is not less than the thickness of the heaviest member through which the rivet passes. The load on any brace is equal to the sum of all the weights upon its system between it and the upper portion or unsupported end of the building.
I also put out our model skeleton and the spine from our for reference.

The box girders are of two kinds those made of two webs,, angles and cover-plates, and those of a series of single-web. Size of Angles in Inches. Long hollow cores, or voids, run the entire length of each piece, giving the material its name. Consistent, predictable optimization What role does a Scanner plays in a compiler? If hollow tile alone is used for such enclosure, the thickness of the same shall be made in at least two courses, breaking joints with and bonded into each other.
The foundation should be pre- pared by first laying a bed of con- crete to a depth of from 4 to 12 in. When coarse sand or gravel is mixed with the clay, its supporting power is greatly increased, being greater in proportion as the quantity of these materials is greater. Skeletal frames are used chiefly for commercial buildings, offices and car parks, but sometimes also for apartment buildings Variations of skeletal frame systems: 1. The explanation for the greater average settlement of the whole pile probably lies in the fact that this area is so completely and closely surrounded with the other foundations of the building and of the party wall of the adjoining building that most of the lines of resistance through the clay structure must necessarily be vertical, and all the advantage of its large perimeter is lost. There are five hydraulic elevators for the use of the public and two electric elevators for the use of the company. Typical Floor Plan 152 64. The floor beams throughout the building are 1 2-inch by 32 Ibs.
