Slide 10 Background Theory

- Reinforcement requirements:
- Design method
- Reinforcement requirements due to flexure
- Reinforcement requirements due to Shear
- T-Girder

Slide 11 ### Design method

- The method which will be used in our project is the ultimate-strength design method.
- It's called now ultimate strength design.
- The working dead and live loads are multiplied by certain load factors and the resulting values are called factored loads.

Slide 12 ### Reinforcement requirements due to flexure

- The reinforcing bars will be distributed as follows:
- This reinforcing may not be spaced farther on center than 3 times the slab thickness.
- A percentage of the main positive moment reinforcement which is perpendicular to the traffic shall be distributed in the parallel direction of the traffic

Slide 13 ### Reinforcement requirements due to flexure

- Spacing limits for reinforcement:
- For cast-in-place concrete the clear distance between parallel bars in a layer shall not be less that 1.5 bar diameter.
- Not less than1.5 times the maximum size of the coarse aggregate or 1.5 inches.

Slide 14 ### Reinforcement requirements due to flexure

- Positive Moment Reinforcement:
- At least one-third the positive moment reinforcement in simple members and one-fourth the positive moment reinforcement in continuous members shall extend along the same face of the members into the support in beams, such reinforcement shall extend into the support at least 6 inches.

- The development length :
- The reinforcement bars must be extended some distance back into the support and out into the beam to anchor them or develop their strength.

Slide 15 ### Reinforcement requirements due to Shear

- The failure of reinforced concrete beams in shear are quite different form their failures in bending.
- Shear failures occur suddenly with little or no advance warning.
- If pure shear is produced in a member, a principal tensile stress of equal magnitude will be produced on another plane.

Slide 16 ### Types of Shear Reinforcement

- Stirrups perpendicular to the axis of the member or making an angle of the member or making and angle of 45 degrees or more with the longitudinal tension reinforcement.
- Welded wire fabric with wires located perpendicular to the axis of the member.
- Longitudinal reinforcement with a bent portion making an angle of 30 degrees or more with longitudinal tension reinforcement.
- Combinations of stirrups and bent longitudinal reinforcement.
- Spirals.

Slide 17 ### Shear strength

- Design of cross section subject to shear shall be based on:
- Where Vn = nominal shear strength
- Vu= factored shear force at the section considered

Slide 18 ### Shear strength provided by concrete

Slide 19 ### Shear strength provided by Shear Reinforcement

- When shear reinforcement perpendicular to the axis of the member is used:
- Where Av= the area of shear reinforcement with in distance s.
- S= Spacing between stirrups
- Shear Strength Vs shall not be taken greater than

Slide 20 ### Minimum shear reinforcement

- A minimum area of shear reinforcement shall be provided in all flexural members expect slab and footing where the factored shear force Vu exceeds one-half the shear strength provided by concrete 1/2.
- The area provided shall not be less than:
- Where b and s are in inches.

Slide 21 ### Minimum shear reinforcement

- Spacing of Shear Reinforcement
- Spacing of shear reinforcement placed perpendicular to the axis of the member shall not exceed d/2 of 24 inches.

- Shrinkage temperature reinforcement:
- Reinforcement for shrinkage and temperature stress shall be provided near exposed surfaces of walls and slabs not otherwise reinforced.
- The total area of reinforcement provided shall be at least 1/8 square inch per foot in each direction.
- The spacing of shrinkage and temperature reinforcement shall not exceed three times the wall or slab thickness, or 18 inches

Slide 22 ### Girder ( T – Section )

- The Total width of slab effective as a T-girder flange shall not exceed one-fourth of the span length of the girder.
- The effective flange width overhanging on each side of the web shall not exceed six times the thickness of the slab or one-half the clear distance to the next web.

Slide 32 ### Live load of pier cap

Uniform wheel load

- ∑ M2 = 0
- R1 =( 26 * 2.95 ) / 7.22 = 10.6 k
- ∑ Fy = 0
- 10.6 + R2 – 26 = 0
- R2 = 15.4 k
- ∑ M3 = 0
- R2 =( 26 * 4.17 ) / 7.22 = 15 k
- ∑ Fy = 0
- 15 + R3 – 26 = 0
- R3 = 11 k

Slide 52 ### Design of Pier Cap (Inputs)

Slide 54 ### Design of Pier Cap (Outputs)

- Minimum spacing s = maximum of ~ (depth – cover)/2 = (1829- 50)/2 = 890 mm
~ 600 mm

- So minimum spacing (s) = 890 mm.
- Minimum number of bars = length of span / Spacing= 7700 / 890 = 8.6 = 9 bars
