CHECKERED PLATE DESIGN - Structural engineering general ...

Sep 07, 2010 · The plate is 8 mm thick and the span is 2m. In order to withstand the design load, i try to provide a stiffener but unfortunately it fails due limited depth of stiffener of 25mm. I try also to make the distances of the stiffener as close as possible but it still fail. Can anyone recommend how to design this checkered plate? Thanks in advance.

For long spans, like the 2 meters you are considering, weld the checkered plate on top of steel bar grating that has the necessary load rating for...exactly, and i consider it as composite section in my design. it so happen that it fails because the depth of the stiffener is limited to 25 mmIn which case, you need more depth. There may be an imposed limit, but you will have to get that limit relaxed if you can't make it work. Sounds...Your design is doomed.
