QUESTION: 6

In the previous question calculate bend stress. (in N/mm2)

(Important - Enter only the numerical value in the answer)

Solution: QUESTION: 7

For a pretensioned beam, Young’s modulus of steel and concrete are 200 GPa and 35.35 GPa, respectively If the ultimate shrinkage strain and ultimate creep coefficient are 200 microns and 1.6 respectively, what is the level of sustained stress in concrete at the level of steel if the loss due to creep is three times the loss due to
shrinkage?

Solution: QUESTION: 8

In a post tensioned pre-stressed concrete Beam. The end block zone is in between the end of the beam
and the section where

Solution:
QUESTION: 9

Find ultimate axial load carrying capacity of circular column having diameter 500mm. Consider clear cover 50mm. Column having 12Nos-20mm φ longitudinal Reinforcement & 8mm φ spiral Reinforcement.
Use M20/Fe415.

Solution:  QUESTION: 10

In above question find pitch of spiral Reinforcement

Solution:    QUESTION: 11

A simply supported post-tensioned prestressed concrete beam of span L is prestressed by a straight tendon
at a uniform eccentricity ‘e’ below the centroidal axis. If the magnitude of prestressing force is P and
flexural rigidity of beam is EI, maximum deflection of the beam is

Solution:   QUESTION: 12

For maximum hogging bending moment at suppot in a continuous RC beam, live load should be placed on

Solution: QUESTION: 13

A box girder is subjected to loads as shown in the figure below. The critical section for shear in the bottom slab will occur at Solution:

Since, the bottom slab will experience tension hence the critical section occurs at the face of wall.

QUESTION: 14

An isolated T-beam is used as a walkway. The beam is simply supported with an effective span of 6 m. The effective width of flange, for the cross-section shown in the figure is Solution: QUESTION: 15

Shrinkage deflection in case of rectangular beams and slabs can be eliminated by putting

Solution:

Deflection due to shrinkage is caused due to differential shrinkage which is caused by
unsymmetrically placed reinforcement in beam. Hence, to avoid such deflection compression steel equal to tensile steel must be placed.

QUESTION: 16

The limits of percentage ‘p’ of the longitudinal reinforcement in a column is

Solution:

Minimum reinforcement in Column → 0.8%
Maximum reinforcement in Column → 6%

QUESTION: 17

A reinforced cantilever beam of span 7m, has a cross-sectional area of 250 mm X 500 mm (effective)
if checked for lateral stability and deflection, the beam will

Solution: Hence the beam will fail in
deflection

(b) Check for lateral stability :

For cantilever beam clear distance between the free end of cantilever and lateral restraint shall not Hence beam will fail in lateral stability.
Beam will fail in both deflection & lateral stability

QUESTION: 18
