this is my first thread on revit city, and i apologise in advance if this is not the right place for my thread.
i am in my final year studying architectural technology and i have designed a 5 storey building and each floor
is set back 1 metre from the one below it. the structure will be made with steel beams and columns, with
concrete slabs poured in each bay.
my question is can this be done, which i presume it can, but as i am not an engineer, i am unable to say how it works.
i have a small understanding on point loads and forces acting on a beam.
anyway, as i said, each floor has a concrete slab. this has to be supported by a column, but with my design, the column is just resting on the beam below, and then it steps out aginb for the next load.
i have attached a 2D drawing of what the structure will look like, so i hope you can understand what i mean.
as i said, i am an architecture student, and this isnt really an issue to work out loads, but as i design a building i like to
have an idea of how the structure works.
i can use revit and position beamsn and columns and all looks weel in 3D, but will it actually work??
will it need very thick beams?
sorry for the long post, and i know it is a bit away from an actual revit question, but thought someone here could
ease my mind.
thanks in advance,
