Analysis of the section

A satisfactory & economic design of a concrete of a concrete structure rarely depends on a complex theoretical analysis.

It is achieved more by deciding or a practical overall layout of the structure, careful attention to detail & sound construction practice.

However, we still need to analyze the individual member sections, which should be kept simple.

The 3 most important principles that unite the analysis are:

- The stress & stains are related by the material properties, including the stress strain curves for concrete and steel.

- The distribution of strains must be compatible with the distorted shape of the cross section.

- The resultant forces developed by the section must balance the applied loads for static equilibrium.

The above principles are true irrespective of how the stresses and strains are distributed, or how the member is loaded, or whatever the shape of the cross section.

This chapter describes & analysis the action of a member section under load. It derives the basic equations used in design & also those equations required for the preparation of design charts.

Stress strain relations

 

4.1.1

Concrete

The behavior of structural concrete (fig.4.1) is represented by a parabolic stress strain relationship, up to ε o , from which point the strain increase while the stress remains constant.

ε o & tangent modulus at the origin are both specified as a function f cu (characteristic strength of concrete).

The ultimate design stress is given by

At where, 0.67 factor is the difference between bending strength factor (0.8) multiply with crushing concrete strength factor (0.85) of the concrete, and γ m = 1.5 is the

difference between the site curing factor (1.13) multiply with laboratory curing factor

(1.3).

The ultimate strain o 0.0035 is typical for all concrete grades.

Reinforcing steel

 
 

The representative short term design stress strain curve for reinforcement is given in fig. 4.2.

The behavior of the steel is identical in tension & compression, being linear in the elastic range up to the design yield stress of f y m .

Within the elastic range, the relationship between the stress & strain is Stress = Elastic modulus (E s ) x strain (ε o ) [4.1]

4.2 The distribution of strains and stresses across a section

The theory of bending for R.C. assumes that the concrete will cracks in the regions of tensile strains & that, after cracking, all the tension is carried by the reinforcement.

Another assumption is that plan sections of a structural member remain plane after straining, so that across the section there must be a linear distribution of strains.

Fig. 4.3 shows the cross sections of a member subject to bending, & the resultant strain diagram, together with 3 different types of stress distribution in the concrete.

to bending, & the resultant strain diagram, together with 3 different types of stress distribution in

- The triangular stress distribution applies when the stresses are very nearly proportional to the strains, which generally occurs at the loading levels encountered under working conditions and is used at the serviceability limit state.

- The rectangular parabolic stress block represents the distribution at failure when the compressive strains are within the plastic range & it is associated with the design for ultimate limit state.

- The equivalent rectangular stress block is a simplified alternative to the rectangular parabolic distribution.

- There is compatibility of strain between the reinforcement & the adjacent concrete, so ε st & ε sc can be determined from strain diagram.

To ensure yield of tension steel at the ultimate state:

x 0.615d

At the ultimate limit state, it is important that member section in flexure should be ductile & that failure should occur with the gradual yielding of the tension steel & not by a sudden catastrophic compression failure of the concrete.

Yielding of steel reinforcement enables the formation of plastic hinges so that redistribution of maximum moments can occur, resulting in a safer & more economical structural.

To be very certain of tension steel yielding, the code of practice limits the depth of neutral axial so that

This limit will normally be adopted for ultimate limit state. If larger moment redistribution required, smaller x is required.

4.3 Bending and the equivalent rectangular stress block

For R.C. design, it is usual to commence the design for the conditions at the ultimate limit state, which is then followed by check to ensure that the ultimate limit state, which is then followed by checks to ensure that the structure is adequate for the serviceability limit state without excessive deflection or cracking of the concrete.

For this reason, we will consider the simplified rectangular stress block, which can be used for the design at the ultimate limit state.

The rectangular stress block is shown in fig. 4.4.

 The rectangular stress block is shown in fig. 4.4.  The stress block (rectangular) has

The stress block (rectangular) has a depth s = 0.9x. So the centroid of stress block = s/2 = 0.45x from the top edge of the section.

The moment of resistance will be similar for both the rectangular & rectangular parabolic stress blocks.

4.4 Singly reinforced rectangular section in bending

Bending of the section will induce a resultant tensile force F st in the reinforcing steel, and a resultant compressive force in the concrete F cc which acts through the centroid of the effective area of concrete in compression, as in fig. 4.4.

For equilibrium, the ultimate design moment, M must be balanced by the moment of resistance of the section so that M = F cc x z = F st x z Where z is the level arm between F cc & F st F cc = stress x area of action = 0.45f cu x bs

Balances with the steel strains & stress being calculated from eqn. 4.2, 4.3 & 4.1, the steel stresses at balance would then be used to calculate the moment of resistance.

4.6 Flanged section in bending at the ultimate limit state

T section & L section which have their flanges in compression can both design & analysed in a similar manner.

As the flanges generally provide a large compressive area, it is usually unnecessary to consider the case where compression steel is required.

For singly reinforced section it is necessary to consider two conditions:-

- The stress block lies within the compression flange,

- The stress block extends below the flange.

4.6.1

Flanged section The depth of the stress block lies within the flange, s < h f (fig.

4.12)

block lies within the flange, s < h f (fig. 4.12)  The beam can be

The beam can be considered as an equivalent rectangular section of breadth b f equal to the flange width. This is because the non rectangular section below the neutral axis is in tension and is, therefore inactive. Thus, k = M/b f d 2 f cu can be calculated & the lever arm determined from the lever arm curve of figure 4.5 or eqn. 4.8.

The relation between the lever arm, z & depth, x is given by z = d s/2 if s < h f , stress block does lie within the flange as assumed &

Hence the stress block does lie within the flange & with this depth of neutral axis the steel will have yielded as assumed.

z = d s/2 = 420 59/2 = 390mm

Taking moments about the centroid of the reinforcement the moment of resistance is

M = F cc (z)

= 0.45f cu b f z

= 0.45(30)(800)(59)(390)10-6

= 249kNm

4.6.2 Flange section The depth of the stress block extends below the flange, s>h f .

Can use section 4.1 to check if s extends below h f .

Alternatively, can calculate M f (with s = h f ). So that if M > M f , the stress block must extend below the flange, & s>h f

In this case the design can be carried out by either

- Using an exact method to determined the depth of the neutral axis, as in example 4.6 or

- Designing for the conservative condition of x = d/2 as describes at the end of this section.

Example 4.6

Design of a flanged section with the depth of the stress block below the flange

The T section beam shown in fig. 4.14 is required to resits an ultimate design moment of 180kNm. The characteristic material strength are f y = 460Nmm -2 & f cu = 30Nmm -2 . Calculate the area of reinforcement required.

The stress block must extent below the flange.

It is now necessary to determine the depth, s w , of the web in compression, where s w = s h f

For equilibrium:

Analysis of a flanged section

Determine the ultimate moment of resistance of the T section shown in fig. 4.15, given f y = 460Nmm -2 , f cu = 30Nmm -2 .

f y = 460Nmm - 2 , f c u = 30Nmm - 2 . The

The compressive force in the flange, is

F cf = 0.45f cu b f h f

= 0.45(30)(450)(150)10 -3

= 911.2kN

Then tensile force in the reinforcing steel, assuming it has yielded, is

F st = 0.95f y A s

= 0.95(460)(2410)10 -3

= 1053.2kN>f cf

Hence, s > h f

F cw = 0.45f cu b w (s-h f )

= 0.45(30)(300)(s-150)10 -3

For equilibrium

F cw = F st F cf

4.05(s-150) = 1053.2 911.2

s = 185mm

x = s/0.9 = 185/0.9 = 206mm

F cw = 142kN

If F cf > F st , then the section would be analysed as in example 4.2 for a rectangular section of dimension b f x d

Taking moment about the centroid of the reinforcement,

M = F cf (d h f /2) + F cw (d h f [s h f ]/2)

= F ct (d h f /2) + F cw (d h f /2 s/2)

= [911.2(440 150/2) +142(440 185/2 150/2)]10 -3

= 371kNm

Example 4.8

Design of a flanged section with depth of neutral axis x = d/2

A safe but conservative design for a flanged section with s > hf can be achieved by setting te depth of neutral axis to x = d/2, the maximum depth allowed in the code. Design equations can be derived for this condition as follow.

Depth of stress block, s = 0.9x = 0.45d

condition as follow. Depth of stress block, s = 0.9x = 0.45d Divide the flanged section

Divide the flanged section within the depth of the stress block into area and 2 as shown in fig.

4.16

Area 1 = b w s = 0.45b w d

Area 2 = (b f b w )h f

F c1 = 0.45f cu (0.45b w d)

F c2 = 0.45f cu h f (b f b w )

= 0.20f cu b w d

Taking moments about F c2 at the centroid of the flange

M = F st (d h f /2) F c1 (s/2 h f /2)

= 0.95f y A s (d h f /2) 0.2 f cu b w d(0.45d h f )/2

of example 4.6

Before using eqn. 4.23 for calculating A s , it is necessary to confirm that compression

reinforcement is not required. This is achieved by using eqn. 4.24 to check that the moment

of resistance of concrete, M c , is greater than the design moment, M.

4.6.3 Flanged section with compression reinforcement.

With x = d/2 in fig. 4.16 and taking moments about A s , the maximum resistance

moment of the concrete is

M c = F c1 z 1 + F c2 z 2 = 0.156f cu b w d 2 + 0.45f cu (b f b w )(d-h f /2)

Note, d’/x < 0.37, otherwise the design compressive steel stress is less than 0.95f y .

When, because of moment redistribution, β b < 0.9 the limiting depth of neutral axis is

less than d/2 and these equations will require modification using the factors.

M c = F c1 z 1 + F c2 z 2

If Mc > M, no compression steel is required.
