Thermal Effects For Steel Building Or Structure Calculation Spreadsheet12 November 2021
Thermal Effects For Steel Building Or Structure Calculation Spreadsheet
This spreadsheet is a program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of considering the thermal effects for a
steel building or structure. Specifically, the appropriate maximum design temperature change, the change of
length or stress as applicable, and the maximum building or structure length either without or between expansion
joints is determined. There is also a “General Thermal Effects Calculator” which can be used to selectively
determine any of the analysis parameters, as well as a temperature converter which can be used to convert from
oC (Celsius) to oF (Fahrenheit).
