ANALYSIS OF THE SECTIONS

Introduction
A satisfactory and economic of a

concrete structure rarely depends on a complex theoretical analysis. Wherever possible the analysis should be kept simple, yet it should be based on the observed and tested behavior of reinforced concrete members.

Assumption
The flexural strength at the ultimate limit state is

determined assuming the following conditions as given in clause 3.4.4.1 BS8110 Part 1: Plane sections remain plane. The compressive stresses in the concrete may be derived from the stress-strain curve in Figure 2.1 The stresses in the reinforcement are derived from the stress-strain curve in Figure 2.2. The tensile strength of the concrete is ignored.

Example 1 A simply supported beam has an effective span 8 m and supported characteristic dead (gk) and live (qk) loads of 15 kN/m and 10 kN/m respectively. Determine suitable dimensions for the effective depth and width of the beam.

Solution Ratio= Span/ Depth = 12 d = 8000/12 = 666.67 mm Take d = 670 mm Total ultimate load = (1.4 gk + 1.6 qk) 8 = 296 kN Design shear force (V) = 296/2 = 148 kN

Solution Design shear stress v = V/bd = 148 x 103/(670 x b) Assuming v is equal to 1.2 N/mm2 , gives width of beam,b,of Check shear stress in beam b =V/dv = 148 x 103/(670 x 1.2) 185 mm

1.

Consider the moment of the compressive force about the line of action of Ft:

Ultimate concrete moment, M = FcZ = [0.45fcub(0.9x)]Z = 0.405fcubxZ from the stress block: Z = d-0.45x then, M = 0.405fcubx(d-0.45x) M = {0.405[x/d]}{1-0.45[x/d]}fcubd2 -------------(1) M = kfcubd2 @ k = M/fcubd2
2.

To enable balance failure to occur (other failures occur without warning), x is limited to 0.5d, then equation 1 becomes:

Mu

= 0.156fcubd2 ---------------- (2) = kfcubd2 where k=0.156

Equation 2 represents the moment capacity of the section based on the concrete area in compression.
The value of 0.156 is the limiting value of k and is given the symbol k. To obtain the required area of reinforcement, As : Consider the moment of the tensile force about the line of action of Fc : M = FsZ M = 0.95fyAsZ As = M/0.95fyZ

From (1); M M/fcubd2 = {0.405[x/d]}{1-0.45[x/d]}fcubd2 = {0.405[x/d]}{1-0.45[x/d]}

From the stress block; lever arm, Z = d-0.45x---- x = (d-z)/0.45

The beam dimensions are breadth, b, 275 mm and effective depth, d, 450 mm. Assuming the following material strengths, calculate the area of reinforcement required.

Solution
Ultimate load (w) = 1.4 gk + 1.6 qk = 1.4 x 12 + 1.6 x 8 =29.6 kN/m Design moment (M) = wl2/8 = (29.6 x 72)/8 = 181.3 kNm Ultimate moment of resistance (Mu) = 0.156fcubd2 = 0.156 x 30 x 275 x 4502 x 10-6 = 260.6 kNm Since Mu > M design as a singly reinforced beam k z = M/fcubd2 = 181.3 x106/(30x275x4502) = d{0.5 + [0.25 (k/0.9)]} = 450{0.5+[0.25-(0.1085/0.9)]} = 386.8 mm 0.95 d (= 427.5) OK

Solution
As = M/0.95fyz = 1073 mm2 = 181.3 x 106/(0.95 x 460 x 386.8)

Consider the moment of the compressive forces about the line of action of Ft:

= FcZ + Fs(d-d) = 0.45fcub(0.9x)(d-0.45x) + 0.95fyAs(d-d) consider balance failure, x/d=0.5 M = 0.156fcubd2 + 0.95fyAs(d-d) the equation can be rewritten as: As = (M-0.156fcubd2)/0.95fy(d-d)
The required area of tension reinforcement can be determined by equating the

compressive and the tensile forces acting on the cross section:


Fs = Fc + Fs
