The Influence Of Solar Radiation On Temperature Increment Of Sheet Steel Structures

O. I. Kordun
Published Online: 2015-09-30 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ace-2015-0006


The paper considers method of determination of solar radiation amount falling on arbitrarily oriented surface of a structure. Provided method allows calculation of influence of structure’s geographical coordinates, spatial orientation of structure’s surface, day of year and time of day on received amount of solar radiation. The method is intended for determination of thermal stresses and deformations of sheet steel structures caused by action of direct solar radiation. Examples show usage of provided method.
