What happens if the building height is too large?

Marko Sydanlammi

ABB's answer

The limiting factor is the bending moment acting on the load cell. This bending moment is in fact the building height multiplied by the force vector perpendicular to the building height (i.e. denoted by the letter h in the sketch below) . This means that if the building height is too high, it can be compensated by a smaller perpendicular force. If this cannot be done, deterioration in load cell data may be experienced. It should also be noted that screw joint performances might be affected by excessive bending moment.
