What Is Superstructures | Difference Between Load-Bearing and Framed Structures
With increasing urbanisation in developing countries such as India, designing low-cost and energy-efficient housing is an urgent requirement. Adoption of sustainable construction methods and materials assist in reducing the environmental impact and cost of these constructions. This paper compares the design feasibility of a single-storey load-bearing masonry building and a reinforced-concrete-framed structure for energy-efficient constructions. A systematic methodology is applied for residential buildings that come under the composite climate zone. Given energy-efficient design, two different building typologies, one a load-bearing structure with filler slab and the other a conventional reinforced-concrete-framed structure, have been analysed by a computational approach. With due consideration for structural stability, embodied energy, peak cooling load and the cost of construction were evaluated and compared.
SFS load bearing is a complete load bearing system suitable for structures up to 5 storeys without the need for a primary hot rolled or reinforced concrete frame. Load bearing structures make use of the axial capacity of the Metsec SFS studs, with studs designed as a series of columns to provide complete load bearing wall panels. The system provides a complete load-bearing superstructure for low to medium rise structures with all Metsec components supplied to site loose and are assembled in-situ with Tek screwed connections. This system has many advantages over traditional methods of construction. It is light-weight, fast track, durable and is suitable for confined sites.
Design feasibility of load-bearing masonry building for energy-efficient construction
A load-bearing wall or bearing wall is a wall that is an active structural element of a building , which holds the weight of the elements above it, by conducting its weight to a foundation structure below it. Load -bearing walls are one of the earliest forms of construction. The development of the flying buttress in Gothic architecture allowed structures to maintain an open interior space, transferring more weight to the buttresses instead of to central bearing walls.
A load bearing structure and frame structure are two methods of building structural framing. Load bearing structures are popular earlier, but now due to comparative advantages of the frame structure is now become obsolete. In this article, we see what is difference between load bearing structure and frame structure.
