Introduction / Design Criteria for Reinforced Concrete Structures

  • Structural design  
  • Definition of design:

Determination of the general shape and all specific dimensions of a particular structure so that it will perform the function for which it is created and will safely withstand the influences which will act on it throughout its useful life.

→ Principles of mechanics, structural analysis, behavioral knowledge in structures and materials.

→ Engineering experience and intuition.
→ (a) Function, (b) strength with safety requirements will vary for structures.
→ Influences and structural response:

Introduction, Design Criteria for Reinforced Concrete Structures Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

→  Structural mechanics:
A tool that permits one to predict the response (with a required level of accuracy, and a good degree of certainty) of a structure to defined influences.

→ Role of the designer (engineer) of a structure

 

→ Design criteria for concrete

Two schools of thoughts
1. Base strength predictions on nonlinear theory using actual σ- ε relation

  • 1897 – M.R. von Thullie (flexural theory)
  • 1899 – W. Ritter (parabolic stress distribution theory]

2. Straight-line theory (elastic)

  • 1900 – E. Coignet and N. de Tedesco (the straight-line (elastic) theory of concrete behavior)


→ Working Stress Design (WSD) – Elastic theory
1. Assess loads (service loads) (Building Code Requirements)
2. Use linear elastic analysis techniques to obtain the resulting internal forces (load effects): bending, axial force, shear, torsion
At service loads: σmax  ≤ σall
e.g.  Introduction, Design Criteria for Reinforced Concrete Structures Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev compression in bending
Introduction, Design Criteria for Reinforced Concrete Structures Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev 0.50 σ = fy flexure

o Ultimate Strength Design (USD)

  • The members are designed taking inelastic strain into account to reach ultimate strength when an ultimate load is applied to the structure.
  • The load effects at the ultimate load may be found by
    (a) assuming a linear-elastic behavior
    (b) taking into account the nonlinear redistribution of actions.
  • Sectional design is based on ultimate load conditions.
  • Some reasons for the trend towards USD are
    (a) Efficient distribution of stresses
    (b) Allows a more rational selection of the load factors
    (c) Allows designer to assess the ductility of the structure in the post-elastic range


o Limit State Design

  • Serviceability limit state:
    Deformation, fatigue, ductility.
  • Ultimate limit state:
    Strength, plastic collapse, brittle fracture, instability, etc. 
  • It has been recognized that the design approach for reinforced concrete (RC) ideally should combine the best features of ultimate strength and working stress designs:
    (a) strength at ultimate load
    (b) deflections at service load
    (c) crack widths at service load


o ACI (American Concrete Institute) Code emphasizes:

  • (a) strength provisions
  • (b) serviceability provisions (deflections, crack widths)
  • (c) ductility provisions (stress redistribution, ductile failure)


→ Design factors
o 1956 – A.L.L. Baker (simplified method of safety factor determination)
o 1971 – ACI Code (load factors and capacity (strength, resistance) reduction factors)
o 2002 – ACI 318 Building Code
o Design loads (U) are factored to ensure the safety and reliability of structural performance.
o Structural capacities (φ) of concrete material are reduced to account for inaccuracies in construction and variations in properties.
o Semi-probabilistic design is achieved by introducing the use of load factors,γi, and capacity reduction factors, φ.
o Load factors – ACI 318 Building Code

  • Load combinations
    U = 1.4(D + F)
    U = 1.2(D + F + T) + 1.6(L + H) + 0.5(Lr or S or R)
    U = 1.2D + 1.6(Lr or S or R) + (1.0L or 0.8W)
    U = 1.2D + 1.6W + 0.5L + 1.0(Lr or S or R)
    U = 1.2D + 1.0E + 1.0L + 0.2S
    U = 0.9D + 1.6W + 1.6H
    U = 0.9D + 1.0E + 1.6H
    where D = dead load; F = lateral fluid pressure; T = self-straining force (creep, shrinkage, and temperature effects); L = live load; H = load due to the weight and lateral pressure of soil and water in soil; Lr = roof load; S = snow load; R = rain load; W = wind load; E = earthquake load.
  • ACI 318-02 also provides exceptions to the values in above expressions. o Capacity reduction factors – ACI 318 Building Code ƒ Members subject to structural actions and their associated reduction factor (φ) Beam or slab in bending or flexure: 0.9 Columns with ties: 0.65 Columns with spirals: 0.70 Columns carrying very small axial loads: 0.65~0.9 for tie stirrups and 0.7~0.9 for spiral stirrups. Beam in shear and torsion: 0.75
  • Relation between resistance capacity and load effects
    Introduction, Design Criteria for Reinforced Concrete Structures Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev resistance ≥sum of load effects
    For a structure loaded by dead and live loads the overall safety factor is
