NPS® BASIC Beam

The self-bearing composite steel truss and concrete NPS® Basic beam is recommended for structures with large spans, residential and industrial buildings, and for infrastructure.

The metal structure, made of structural steel pursuant to Standard UNI EN 10025-2 and with EN 1090-1 CE marking is composed of:

  • lower chord formed by a plate and possible additional rebar soldered to it;
  • upper chord formed by at least one pair of profiles;
  • connection web, simple or double, soldered to the upper and lower chords;
  • appropriately sized support terminals, which serve as anchoring devices, resist sliding actions.

Technical data

Metal structure Made of structural steel in conformity with UNI Standard UNI EN ISO 10025-2
Footing Structural steel S355J0 plate in conformity with UNI Standard UNI EN ISO 10025-2 with support function for the ceiling and formwork for the casting formwork
Casting framework C25/30 when not otherwise noted by the designer
Self-supporting Yes. NPS® BASIC Beam bears itself and the ceiling that rests on it, already from the moment it is placed on the column (1st phase), already before the formwork cast (2nd phase)
Welding Using metal active gas welding (Process UNI EN ISO 4063-135)
Mechanical resistance to fire ( R ) To be defined according to project requirements
Standards referenced In the 1st phase Eurocode 3 In the 2nd phase Eurocode 4 For anti-seismic and Eurocode 8
Design Elaborated with the System calculation procedure conforming to the current Standard, and signed by a qualified technician.
Countable length Distance between theoretic supports used in the calculation

CONSIGLIO TECNICO-APPLICATIVO

Favarato Eng. Alessandra Favarato,
NPS® Designer

 

BASIC Beam is the most versatile type for span and sections.
It lends itself to the insertion of bore holes and bolt joints, as well as the realisation of arched beams or beam knees.
