Thanks for considering metal building systems on your next project, and thanks to MBMA for creating such a complete and authoritative glossary of the steel structure industry. All the vocabulary is commonly used in steel structure, understanding them can make our steel structure project communication smoother.
Steel decking, also known as metal decking, is a sheet of high-performance galvanized steel used in the construction of composite concrete floor slabs. It can also be used as a structural feature in roof construction. When specified as metal roof decking it is used to support insulating membranes.
In recent years, various forms of steel structures have been widely used in large space buildings such as stadiums, airports, stations, equipment production lines, convention and exhibition centers, and theaters. The tube truss structure is a part of the steel structure and is used extensively.
Design information comes from a DBR (Design brief report), also called as Design calculations, it shows the typical design codes, material specifications and other design information for Pre-Engineered Building in India and Nepal.
The degree of industrialization of steel structures is high. The construction period is short, and materials such as cement, sand and gravel are rarely used in the entire construction process, which greatly reduces environmental pollution problems such as dust, construction waste and noise, and meets the requirements of sustainable development.
The National Technical Control of Construction Centre (CTC) is increasing safety levels in the Algerian construction industry by standardising risk prevention. To assure quality and safety, all new building projects in Algeria are legally obliged to involve the CTC centre.
