Al
Jazira
Mohammed
Bin
Zayed
Stadium
is
a
multi

use
stadium
in
Al
Jazira
Club
located
in
Abu
Dhabi
.
•
The
stadium’s
original
capacity
was
15
,
000
seats
but
it
is
currently
going
through
an
expansion
stage
which
will
increase
the
stadiums
capacity
to
an
all
seated
40
,
000
ultra

modern
air
conditioned
sporting
arena
.
•
The
expansion
program
includes
two
residential
towers
to
be
built
beside
the
stadium
and
three
phases
the
first
two
phases
are
carried
out
using
reinforced
concrete
and
pre

cast
concrete
structures
whereas
the
third
phase
is
designed
using
structural
steel
systems
.
Introduction
•
This
project
focuses
analysis
and
design
of
alternative
structural
systems
to
the
future
phase
three
of
Al
Jazira
stadium
.
•
The
actual
structural
system
to
be
used
in
construction
of
phase
three
consists
of
an
overhang
steel
roof
truss
supported
by
a
framed
column,
which
is
in
turn
supported
at
the
top
of
phase
two
.
GP
1
overview
•
We design two alternative
structural systems are proposed in
the current project.
•
First system
, is a simple truss
system which consists of overhang
steel roof trusses supported by
trussed columns.
•
Second system
is a modification of
the former one by extending the
height of the trussed column above
the roof level to allow for
installation of cables that are
attached from the other end to the
mid

points of the roof trusses.

Steel
1.
The aim
of using steel is to reduce the dead weight.
2.
Composed of
Iron
, Small amount of
Carbon
(<
2
%) and other chemical
components (such as
Manganese, Copper, Nickel, Silicon, and Aluminum
)
3.
The aim
of the chemical components is to improve
strength
,
toughness
,
hardness
,
ductility
, and
corrosion resistance
.
4.
Increasing the
Carbon content
leads to an increase in
strength
and
hardness
, but decreases ductility and toughness.
5.
Strength and Ductility
are the most
important characteristics
of structural
steel.
6.
Ductility
is the ability of the member to undergo large deformations without
fracture.
7.
The
economical production
method began around the
middle of the
19
th
century
, by heating iron in contact with charcoal.
8.
A more
advanced process
was introduced by
Sir Henry Bessemer
of England
in
1855
(the
Bessemer process
).
Steel
•
Advantages of construction steel:

High strength

to

weight ratio.

Ductility (large deformation before failure).

Flexibility in structural forms.

Long lifetime if properly maintained.

Recyclable material, environmental friendly.
•
Disadvantage of construction steel:

Buckling susceptibility.

Fireproofing cost, to prevent transmission of heat and the associated large
reduction in strength.

High maintenance cost, e.g. paint coating.

Higher construction and maintenance cost in some parts of the world.
Steel Specification
•
The type of steel that was used in this project is (High strength Low

alloy) A
572
•
Grade
60
, Fy =
60
ksi , Fu =
75
ksi.
•
It gives a high resistance with acceptable cross section dimensions, especially
for large span structures.
•
Circular cross sections were used in this project.

SAP
2000
•
SAP
2000
is a
finite element

based
software that represents the most sophisticated
and user

friendly release of the SAP series of computer programs.
•
Powerful
graphical user interface
unmatched in terms of ease

of

use and
productivity.
•
This program features powerful and completely
integrated modules
for design of
both
steel and reinforced
concrete structures.
•
The program provides an
interactive environment
in which the user can study the
stress conditions, make appropriate changes, such as member size revisions, and
update the design without re

analyzing the structure.
Structural systems
Structural system(
1
):
it is consist of trusses only, and divided into three
parts, column, shed and rakar as present in below figure:
Structural system(
2
):
it is consists of trusses and cable also have a
same divination of system(
1
), However, it should
be noted that the column height was increased
to allow for the installation of the cable element
connected to the middle of the overhang as
shown in following figure.
Modeling, analysis and design procedure for
both system
•
The geometry of the proposed systems was generated in
Auto Cad.
•
the coordinates corresponding to each nodal point were
identified.
•
Such information along with joints are members
numbers, tables of cross section dimensions, applied
loads and load combinations are entered into the
SAP
2000
program.
•
The cable properties should be take it from cables
factory otherwise, is not available in SAP
2000
program.

Results and Discussion
•
System
1
is better than system
2
because its economically.
•
The trusses must be welded in the factory.
•
The transportation process must be under the observation of the Consultant to
avoid any damages to the parts.
