## 3.Limit State Design Method

3.1.LFRD Requirements
For manhole design, the component dimensions and the size and spacing of reinforcement
shall be selected to satisfy the following equation for all appropriate limit states, as presented
in LRFD [1.3.2.1]
Q = i i Qi Rn = Rr
Where :

3.2.Limit States
The Strength I Limit State is used to design reinforcement for flexure and checking shear in
the slabs and walls, LRFD [12.5.3] . The Service I Limit State is used for checking reinforcement
for crack control criteria, LRFD [12.5.2] .

## 3.4.Strength Limit State

Strength I Limit State shall be applied to ensure that strength and stability are provided to resist
the significant load combinations that a structure is expected to experience during its design life
LRFD [1.3.2.4].
3.4.1 Factored Resistance
The resistance factor, , is used to reduce the computed nominal resistance of a structural element
This factor accounts for the variability of material properties, structural dimensions and workmanship
and uncertainty in prediction of resistance. The resistance factors, , for reinforced manholes
for the Strength Limit State per LRFD [Table 12.5.5-1] are as shown below:
Structure Type
Cast-in-place

Flexure

## 3.4.2 Moment Capacity

For rectangular sections, the nominal moment resistance, Mn, per LRFD [5.7.3.2.3] (tension
reinforcement only) equals:

2
The factored resistance, Mr, or moment capacity per LRFD [5.7.3.2.1], shall be taken as:

2
The location of the design moment will consider the haunch dimensions in accordance with
LRFD [12.11.4.2 ]. No portion of the haunch shall be considered in adding to the effective
depth of the section.

## 3.4.3 Shear Capacity

Per LRFD [12.11.4.1] ,shear in manholes shall be investigated in conformance with LRFD[5.14.5.3]
The location of the critical section for shear for manholes with haunches shall be determined in
conformance with LRFD[C5.13.3.6.1] and shall be taken at a distance dv from the end of
the haunch.
In the absence of shear reinforcing, the nominal shear resistance is equal to the shear resistance
of the concrete.The factored resistance, Vr, or shear capacity, per ACI[11.2.1.2] shall be taken as

Vc = 0.17 (f'c)0.5 bw d

## 3.5.Service Limit State

Service I Limit State shall be applied as restrictions on stress, deformation, and crack width
under regular service conditions LRFD [1.3.2.2].
3.5.1 Factored Resistance
The resistance factor, , for Service Limit State, is found in LRFD [1.3.2.1 ] and its value is 1.00.
3.5.2 Crack Control Criteria
Per LRFD [12.11.3] , the provisions of LRFD [5.7.3.4] shall apply to crack width control
All reinforced concrete members are subject to cracking under any load condition, which
produces tension in the gross section in excess of the cracking strength of the concrete.
Provisions are provided for the distribution of tension reinforcement to control flexural cracking.
Crack control criteria does not use a factored resistance, but calculates a maximum spacing for
flexure reinforcement based on service load stress in bars, concrete cover and exposure condition.
Crack control criteria shall be applied when the tension in the cross-section exceeds 80% of
the modulus of rupture, fr, specified in LRFD [5.4.2.6] for Service I Limit State. The spacing,
s, (in mm) of mild steel reinforcement in the layer closest to the tension face shall satisfy:

## 3.6.Minimum Reinforcement Check

Per LRFD [12.11.4.3] , the area of reinforcement, As, in the cross-section should
be checked for minimum reinforcement requirements per LRFD [5.7.3.3.2] .
Unless otherwise specified, at any section of a flexural component the amount of tensile
reinforcement shall be adequate to develop a factored flexural resistance at least equal to lesser of:
A-1.2 times the cracking moment, Mcr, determined on the basis of elastic stress distribution and
the modulus of rapture, fr, of concrete as specified in LRFD[5.4.2.6] where Mcr may be taken as:
