Unformatted text preview: CE243B 1 Prof. Wallace CE243B  DESIGN AND RESPONSE OF RC STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS Problem Set #2: Collapse Mechanism Analysis & Incremental (static) Nonlinear Analysis Due date: 2.1 and 2.2 April 18; 2.3 April 23 Problem 2.1 Simple Frame For the simple frame given below, conduct the following analyses: (1) An incremental, static analysis for monotonically increasing load. Determine the incremental load and deformations for each increment. Estimate curvature demands at critical locations and assess the whether the section has sufficient curvature capacity. (2) A collapse mechanism analysis to determine the collapse load The beam section is 16& wide and 24& deep, with 4  #9 top and bottom bars. Cover to bar centerline is 2.5& and assume shear strength and anchorage are sufficient to reach the collapse state. Materials are f¡ c = 4 ksi and f y = 60 ksi. Problem 2.2 Reinforced Concrete Frame For the frame given below, conduct the following analyses: (1) An incremental, static analysis for monotonically increasing load. Determine the incremental An incremental, static analysis for monotonically increasing load....
