## Torsion Reinforcement In Euro Code

When the reinforcement is known, 0 and T d2 may be determined from Equations 4.44 and 4.45 below. If the resulting value of 0 lies outside the limits given by 4.42 the nearest limit should be taken. 8 The resultant of the tensile forces Fs1 As1 fyld is assumed to act at the centre of gravity of the equivalent hollow section a portion of the longitudinal steel or the prestressing tendons may therefore be placed along the centre line of the member however, in order to ensure that the outward...

## Good Bond Conditions Concrete

P 1 The quality of the bond depends on the surface pattern of the bar, on the dimension of the member and on the position and inclination of the reinforcement during concreting. 2 For normal weight concrete, the bond conditions are considered to be good for a all bars, with an inclination of 45 to 90 to the horizontal, during concreting Figure 5.1 a b all bars which have an inclination of 10 to 45 to the horizontal during concreting and are either placed in members whose depth in the direction...

Figure 2.3 Approximate effective spans for calculation of effective breadth ratios Figure 2.3 Approximate effective spans for calculation of effective breadth ratios The following conditions should be satisfied i) The length of the cantilever should be less than half the adjacent span. ii) The ratio of adjacent spans should...

## Minimum Concrete Cover

5.2.5 Anchorage of links and shear reinforcement P 1 The anchorage of links and shear reinforcement shall normally be effected by means of hooks, or by welded transverse reinforcement. High bond bars or wires can also be anchored by bends. A bar should be provided inside a hook or bend. 2 For the permissible curvature of hooks and bends, see 5.2.1.2 2 . 3 The anchorage as a whole is considered to be satisfactory where the curve of a hook or bend is extended by a straight length which is not...

## Reinforcement Strandfor Prestressed Structures Euro Code

4 Relaxation at temperatures of the structure over 20 C will be higher than given in Figure 4.8. This may affect building structures in hot climates, power plants, etc. If necessary the producer should be asked to include relevant information in the certificate see 3.3.2 2 . 5 Short-term relaxation losses at a temperature of the structure exceeding 60 C can be 2 to 3 times those at 20 C. However, in general, heat curing, over a short period, may be considered to have no effect on long term...

## Eurocode Structure Class

1 In order to satisfy the provisions of 4.1.3.3 P 3 , these minimum values for cover should be associated with particular concrete qualities, to be determined from Table 3 in ENV 206. 2 For slab elements, a reduction of 5 mm may be made for exposure classes 2 5. 3 A reduction of 5 mm may be made where concrete of strength class C40 50 and above is used for reinforced concrete in exposure classes 2a 5b, and for prestressed concrete in exposure classes 1 5b. However, the minimum cover should...
