calculate the Actual Area required of Wind Girder?

Table 5.19a—Section provide the (Z) Modulus (cm3) of Stiffening-Ring Sections with reference to Selected Detail from Figure 5.24, My question; How I can calculate the Actual Area required to estimate the weight of Wind Girder (either Top or Intermediate)?

RE: calculate the Actual Area required of Wind Girder?

Typical layout for a larger wind girder will be like this:

Adjust the length based on forming equipment capacities, erection considerations, and to fit the desired plate widths/lengths.
Width dimensions are just based on geometry. Allow a little extra length for field trim on the last piece.

RE: calculate the Actual Area required of Wind Girder?

The process to get the area of the windgirder sould be:
  1. Using Section 5.9 calculate the required section modulus of the top and any intermediate wind girders
  2. Using table 5.19 determine the dimensions of the windgirder(s)
  3. Knowing the windgirder(s) dimensions, calculate the area / volume / weight.
