NOTES ON THE DESIGN OF STRUCTURAL STEEL APPENDIX "E" It is really very important that more careful consideration be given to the requirements of the facing material in the preliminary layout of structural steel work than is often the case. The facing material along with the details of support for enclosure walls are very often studied only after the size and position of columns, girders and main beams, including even the spandrel members, have been fixed. This is not the best method of procedure, as a careful study of the Spandrel sections during the preliminary stages of design and layout of the structural frame will often result in considerable economy in the steel work. Details for Spandrel sections should be carefully worked up in pencil during the early stages of preparing the small scale drawings, enabling them to be studied along with the Architectural features of the design and before the colurim centers and other lines have been definitely fixed; not afterwards; as these are the first items of information needed by the Structural Engineer in the detailing of the steel. This is also the case when the frame is of reinforced concrete. The Spandrel sections should be kept as simple as possible, using self-supporting stone lintels whenever practicable and all unnecessary steel be eliminated, when an Indiana Limestone facing is to be used; as a lot of small steel in the wall sections, angles, channels and loose lintel steel can frequently be omitted by a properly designed spandrel girder placed in the right position for the support of both facing and backing of enclosure walls.
