Limit States and Design

Limit State:

Condition in which a structure or structural element is no longer acceptable for its intended use.

Major groups for RC structural limit states

  • Ultimate

  • Serviceability

  • Special


Ultimate Limit State

Ultimate limit state

  • structural collapse of all or part of the structure ( very low probability of occurrence) and loss of life can occur.

  • Loss of equilibrium of a part or all of a structure as a rigid body (tipping, sliding of structure).


Ultimate Limit States

Ultimate limit state

  • Rupture of critical components causing partial or complete collapse. (flexural, shear failure).


Ultimate Limit States

  • Progressive Collapse

    • Minor local failure overloads causing adjacent members to failure entire structure collapses.

    • Structural integrity is provided by tying the structure together with correct detailing of reinforcement provides alternative load paths in case of localized failure


Ultimate Limit States

  • Formation of a plastic mechanism - yielding of reinforced forms plastic hinges at enough sections to make structure unstable.

  • Instability cased by deformations of structure causing buckling of members.

  • Fatigue - members can fracture under repeated stress cycles of service loads (may cause collapse).


Serviceability Limit States

  • Functional use of structure is disrupted, but collapse is not expected

  • More often tolerated than an an ultimate limit state since less danger of loss of life.

    • Excessive crack width leakage corrosion of reinforcement gradual deterioration of structure.


Serviceability Limit States

  • More often tolerated than an an ultimate limit state since less danger of loss of life.

    • Excessive deflections for normal service caused by possible effects

      • malfunction of machinery

      • visually unacceptable


Serviceability Limit States

  • More often tolerated than an an ultimate limit state since less danger of loss of life.

    • Excessive deflections for normal service caused by possible effects

      • damage of nonstructural elements

      • changes in force distributions

      • ponding on roofs collapse of roof


Serviceability Limit States

  • More often tolerated than an an ultimate limit state since less danger of loss of life.

    • Undesirable vibrations

      • vertical floors/ bridges

      • lateral/torsional tall buildings

      • Change in the loading


Special Limit States

Damage/failure caused by abnormal conditions or loading.

  • Extreme earthquakes damage/collapse

  • Floods damage/collapse


Special Limit States

Damage/failure caused by abnormal conditions or loading.

  • Effects of fire,explosions, or vehicular collisions.

  • Effects of corrosion, deterioration

  • Long-term physical or chemical instability


Limit States Design

  • Identify all potential modes of failure.

  • Determine acceptable safety levels for normal structures building codes load combination/factors.


Limit States Design

  • Consider the significant limits states.

    • Members are designed for ultimate limit states

    • Serviceability is checked.

      Exceptions may include

      • water tanks (crack width)

      • monorails (deflection)


ACI Building Codes

Whenever two different materials , such as steel and concrete, acting together, it is understandable that the analysis for strength of a reinforced concrete member has to be partial empirical although rational. These semi-rational principles and methods are being constant revised and improved as a result of theoretical and experimental research accumulate. The American Concrete Institute (ACI), serves as clearing house for these changes, issues building code requirements.


Design Philosophy

  • Two philosophies of design have long prevalent.

    • Working stress method focuses on conditions at service loads.

    • Strength of design method focusing on conditions at loads greater than the service loads when failure may be imminent.

  • The strength design method is deemed conceptually more realistic to establish structural safety.


Strength Design Method

In the strength method, the service loads are increased sufficiently by factors to obtain the load at which failure is considered to be “imminent”. This load is called the factored load or factored service load.


Strength Design Method

Strength provide is computed in accordance with rules and assumptions of behavior prescribed by the building code and the strength required is obtained by performing a structural analysis using factored loads.

The “strength provided” has commonly referred to as “ultimate strength”. However, it is a code defined value for strength and not necessarily “ultimate”. The ACI Code uses a conservative definition of strength.


Safety Provisions

Structures and structural members must always be designed to carry some reserve load above what is expected under normal use.


Safety Provisions

There are three main reasons why some sort of safety factor are necessary in structural design.

[1] Variability in resistance.

[2] Variability in loading.

[3] Consequences of failure.


Variability in Resistance

  • Variability of the strengths of concrete and reinforcement.

  • Differences between the as-built dimensions and those found in structural drawings.

  • Effects of simplification made in the derivation of the members resistance.


Variability in Resistance

Comparison of measured and computed failure moments based on all data for reinforced concrete beams with fc > 2000 psi.


Variability in Loading

Frequency distribution of sustained component of live loads in offices.


Consequences of Failure

A number of subjective factors must be considered in determining an acceptable level of safety.

  • Potential loss of life.

  • Cost of clearing the debris and replacement of the structure and its contents.

  • Cost to society.

  • Type of failure warning of failure, existence of alternative load paths.


Margin of Safety

The distributions of the resistance and the loading are used to get a probability of failure of the structure.


Margin of Safety

The term

Y = R - S

is called the safety margin. The probability of failure is defined as:

and the safety index is


Loading

SPECIFICATIONS

Cities in the U.S. generally base their building code on one of the three model codes:

  • Uniform Building Code

  • Basic Building Code (BOCA)

  • Standard Building Code


Loading

These codes have been consolidated in the 2000 International Building Code.

Loadings in these codes are mainly based on ASCE Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 7-95) – has beenupdated to ASCE 7-98.


Dead Loading

  • Weight of all permanent construction

  • Constant magnitude and fixed location


Dead Loads

Examples:

  • Weight of the Structure

    (Walls, Floors, Roofs, Ceilings, Stairways)

  • Fixed Service Equipment

    (HVAC, Piping Weights, Cable Tray, Etc.)

    Can Be Uncertain….

  • pavement thickness

  • earth fill over underground structure


Live Loads

  • Loads produced by use and occupancy of the structure.

  • Maximum loads likely to be produced by the intended use.

  • Not less than the minimum uniformly distributed load given by Code.


Live Loads

See Table 2-1 from ASCE 7-95

Stairs and exitways: 100 psf

Storage warehouses:125 psf (light)250 psf (heavy)

Minimum concentrated loads are also given in the codes.


Live Loads


Live Loads

ASCE 7-95 allows reduced live loads for members with influence area (AI) of 400 sq. ft. or more:

where Lo  0.50 Lo for members supporting one floor

 0.40 Lo otherwise


Live Loads

AI determined by raising member to be designed by a unit amount. Portion of loaded area that is raised = AI

Beam: AI = 2 * tributary area

Column:AI = 4 * tributary area

Two-Way Slab:AI = panel area

(see Fig. 2-10, text)


Load Reduction


Environmental Loads

  • Snow Loads

  • Earthquake

  • Wind

  • Soil Pressure

  • Ponding of Rainwater

  • Temperature Differentials


Classification of Buildings for Wind, Snow and Earthquake Loads

Based on Use Categories (I through IV)

III

Buildings and other structures that represent a low hazard to human life in the event of a failure (such as agricultural facilities)

Buildings/structures not in categories I, III, and IV


Classification of Buildings for Wind, Snow and Earthquake Loads

Based on Use Categories (I through IV)

Buildings/structures that represent a substantial hazard to human life in the event of a failure (assembly halls, schools, colleges, jails, buildings containing toxic/explosive substances)

III


Classification of Buildings for Wind, Snow and Earthquake Loads

Based on Use Categories (I through IV)

Buildings/structures designated essential facilities (hospitals, fire and police stations, communication centers, power-generating stations)

IV


Snow Loads

The coefficients of snow loads are defined in weight.


Snow Loads

Ground Snow Loads (Map in Fig. 6, ASCE 7):

  • Based on historical data (not always the maximum values)

  • Basic equation in codes is for flat roof snow loads

  • Additional equations for drifting effects, sloped roofs, etc.

  • Use ACI live load factor

  • No LL reduction factor allowed


Wind Loads

  • Wind pressure is proportional to velocity squared (v2 )

  • Wind velocity pressure = qz


Wind Loads

where

0.00256 reflects mass density of air and unit conversions.

V =Basic 3-second gust wind speed (mph) at a height of 33 ft. above the ground in open terrain. (1:50 chance of exceedance in 1 year)

Kz = Exposure coefficient (bldg. ht., roughness of terrain)

kzt = Coefficient accounting for wind speed up over hills

I = Importance factor


Wind Loads

Design wind pressure,

p = qz * G * Cp

G =Gust Response Factor

Cp =External pressure coefficients (accounts for pressure directions on building)


Earthquake Loads

Inertia forces caused by earthquake motion

F = m * a

  • Distribution of forces can be found using equivalent static force procedure (code, not allowed for every building) or using dynamic analysis procedures


Earthquake Loads

Inertia forces caused by earthquake motion. Equivalent Static Force Procedure for example, in ASCE 7-95:

V = Cs * W

where

V =Total lateral base shear

Cs = Seismic response coefficient

W =Total dead load


Earthquake Loads

Total Dead Load, W:

1.0 * Dead Load

+ 0.25 * Storage Loads

+ larger of partition loads or 10 psf

+ Weight of permanent equipment

+ contents of vessels

+ 20% or more of snow load


Earthquake Loads

where

Cv =Seismic coefficient based on soil profile and Av

Ca =Seismic coefficient based on soil profiled and Aa

R = Response modification factor (ability to deform in inelastic range)

T =Fundamental period of the structure


Earthquake Loads

where

T =Fundamental period of the structure

T = CT hn3/4

where CT = 0.030 for MRF of concrete

0.020 for other concrete buildings.

hn =Building height


Earthquake Map


Roof Loads

  • Ponding of rainwater

    • Roof must be able to support all rainwater that could accumulate in an area if primary drains were blocked.

    • Ponding Failure:

       Rain water ponds in area of maximum deflection

       increases deflection

       allows more accumulation of water  cycle continues… potential failure


Roof Loads

  • Roof loads are in addition to snow loads

  • Minimum loads for workers and construction materials during erection and repair


Construction Loads

  • Construction materials

  • Weight of formwork supporting weight of fresh concrete
