The conditions in the section are shown in Figure 5.4. It is assumed that EC2(1) Section implies that a should be taken Table 3 as 0.8 for biaxial bending but the NAD(1) would allow 0.85. It can be seen from the diagram that the axial force provided by the concrete is given by The moments about the centroid of the concrete section are given by

Load cases example

Fundamental load combination to be used is For beams without cantilevers the same value of self-weight may be applied to all spans, i.e., 1.35Gk. The load cases to be considered for the imposed loads are (a) alternate spans loaded and The various load arrangements are shown in Figure 12.8. Note Load cose A above should be combined with cases B-J below as necessary

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.

Minimum longitudinal steel

Aa < 0.6fc> tcWyk < 0.0015bp Basing the flexural steel on the active height assumed for the beam design A 0.0015 x 300 x 5750 2588 mm2 Deep beams should normally be provided with a distributed reinforcement near 5.4.5(2) both sides, the effect of each being equivalent to that of an orthogonal mesh with a reinforcement ratio of at least 0.15 in both directions. This reinforcement should...

Shear resistance

Shear will be taken as acting on the web of the section only. When combined shear and torsion effects are to be considered, shear is to be checked using the variable strut inclination method. The angle 0 of the equivalent concrete struts is to be the same for both torsion and shear design. The design shear resistance, V , with zero axial load is given by 1.6 - d 1.6 - 1.44 0.16 < 1.0 Assuming 0.25 o tensile reinforcement, p 0.0025 > 0.02 i Rd1 0.34 x 1(1.2 + 40 x 0.0025) x 250 x 1440 x 103...

Limit state of cracking

No check is required at transfer since beam is totally in compression. Design crack width for post-tensioned member under frequent load combinations The method adopted to determine the minimum reinforcement required is to 5 carry out a rigorous calculation of the crack width where the flexural tensile stress 7 under rare loads exceeds 3 N mm2. If the calculated crack width under frequent loads does not exceed 0.2 mm then further bonded reinforcement is not required....

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...

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.
