Maximum concrete stresses

As the beam is a T-section, the values of Wx and Wb are not equal. By calculation it can be shown that I 6.79 x 109 mm4 and that the centroid of the section is at a height of 196 mm from the soffit. The calculation of the stresses under each load combination is not shown here. The method follows that given in the Post tensioned concrete floors Design handbook. The top and bottom concrete stress for transfer conditions are given in Table 9.3 and those after all losses are given in Table 9.4.

Since span > 7 m, no further modification is required. Permitted span effective depth ratio 39.2 x 1.19 x 0.8 37.3 > 25.9 OK For exposure class 1, crack width has no influence on durability and the limit of 0.3 mm could be relaxed.

Combined footing

Design a combined footing supporting one exterior and one interior column. An exterior column, 600 mm x 450 mm, with service loads of 760 kN dead and 580 kN imposed and an interior column, 600 mm x 600 mm, with service loads of 1110 kN dead and 890 kN imposed are to be supported on a rectangular footing that cannot protrude beyond the outer face of the exterior column. The columns are spaced at 5.5 m centres and positioned as shown in Figure 7.2. The allowable bearing pressure is 175 kN m2, and...

Pilecap design example using truss analogy

Pile Cap Design

A four-pile group supports a 500 mm square column which carries a factored load of 2800 kN. The piles are 450 mm in diameter and spaced at 1350 mm centres. Assume a pilecap depth of 800 mm. Allow the pilecap to extend 150 mm beyond the edge of the piles, to give a base 2.1 m square as shown in Figure 7.7. Use 2.1 m x 2.1 m x 0.8 m deep pilecap For components in non-aggressive soil and or water, exposure class is 2 a . Minimum concrete strength grade is C30 37. For cement content and w c ratio...

Twoway spanning solid slabs

EC2 1 permits the use of elastic analysis, with or without redistribution, or plastic analysis for ultimate limit state design. Elastic analyses are commonly employed for one-way spanning slabs and for two-way spanning slabs without adequate provision to resist torsion at the corners of the slab and prevent the corners from lifting. Plastic analyses are commonly used in other situations. Tabulated results for moments and shears from both types of analysis are widely available. Care is necessary...

Concrete grades

Concrete Cube Cylinder Strength

EC2 1 uses the cylinder strength, fck, to define the concrete strength in design equations, although the cube strength may be used for control purposes. The grade designations specify both cylinder and cube strengths in the form C cylinder strength cube strength, for example C25 30. It may occasionally be necessary to use cube strengths which do not exactly correspond to one of the specified grades. In such instances a relationship is required between cylinder and cube strength in order to...

Symmetrically reinforced rectangular columns

Ec2 Reinforced

Figures 13.2 a to e give non-dimensional design charts for symmetrically reinforced columns where the reinforcement can be assumed to be concentrated in the corners. The broken lines give values of K in Eqn 4.73 of EC2. Eqn 4.73 Where the reinforcement is not concentrated in the corners, a conservative approach is to calculate an effective value of d' as illustrated in Figure 13.3.
