Lecture 13 Serviceability

Serviceability refers to the structural performance of the finished building under service loads. Beam deflection Lateral drift Vibration

We will be focusing our discussion on beam deflection. The ACI 318-02 Code dictates that the deflections be checked on the basis of effective moment of inertia, Ie, under service loads. Before we can determine the value of the effective moment of inertia, we must first have an understanding of the gross moment of inertia, Ig, and the cracked moment of inertia, Icr. Gross Moment of Inertia Ig: The gross moment of inertia is not appropriate for reinforced concrete beams because the concrete under the neutral axis is in tension and is ineffective. Since tension is carried by the steel rebar, the beam becomes composite and therefore must be analyzed as such (See AECT 360 lecture notes). The calculated value of gross moment of inertia is higher than what is actually present. b

Cracked Moment of Inertia Icr: The cracked moment of inertia takes into consideration the composite action between the concrete and steel rebar. This assumes that the concrete in the tension zone is totally ineffective, which is overly conservative. However, the cracked moment of inertia is far closer to predicting the actual moment of inertia of a reinforced concrete beam than the gross moment of inertia. b

Effective Moment of Inertia, Ie: The effective moment of inertia is typically used to determine the section property of the member at a specific point along the moment diagram. In most cases, the effective moment of inertia is used to determine the actual deflection of the member when comparing to Code-dictated maximums.
