Homework No. 1: Characteristic Strength and Design Load Calculation


Due: August 03, 2015
No Late Submissions

1) Two concrete testing labs, Lab A and Lab B, are testing two different batches of concrete.
Test results for 100 concrete cube samples from both the labs are provided in the file Lab Test
Results.xlsx which can be downloaded from Moodle.
a) From the test results, without calculating the characteristic strength, which batch of
concrete would you be more willing to adopt for construction?
b) For the batch of concrete you have chosen, calculate the characteristic strength.

2) Slabs supported by beams on all four sides are typically of two types: one way slabs and two

way slabs. If the length to width ratio ( ) is greater than 2, the slab acts as a one way slab

and the beams along the long spans are assumed to carry the load from the slab (Fig. 1a).
However, in two way slabs with

< 2, as per the yield line theory, the load is assumed to

be distributed to the beams as shown in Fig. 1b.

Consider the floor plan shown in Fig. 2 of a residential RC building where slabs S1, S2 and S3
and supported by beams B1 to B6.
a) Calculate the equivalent uniformly distributed and concentrated loads acting on the
beam B2.
b) Determine the design moment of beam B2 for the ultimate limit state.

[Assume:

Unit weight of reinforced concrete = 25 kN/m3

Slab thickness = 150mm

Width and depth of all beams are 230mm and 500mm respectively]
