Abstract
The benefits of using steel structures for large span facilities, its lightness compared to other structural materials, their machining and ease of assembly and the possibility of recycling. Despite the above advantages, has the disadvantages, being a nonrenewable natural resource, require high energy consumption for production, generate significant CO2 emissions as well as large quantities of waste, both gaseous and solid. Considering that in 2010 crude steel production in the European Union in electric arc furnaces and oxygen steel furnaces totaled 172.9 million tons, the slag generated in the European Union amount to 9,34Mt of slag produced only in electric arc furnaces and 8.37 Mt year in ladle furnaces, which are deposited in landfills that generate serious environmental damage, which is essential to the study of proposals to make more sustainable and less environmentally damaging buildings and design to execution. Considering these aspects, the study aims to study the influence of tensions and energy consumption in Warren type trusses, when they are subjected to different load values and with differente types of knots, in order to optimize the amount of material and energy consumption.
