Introduction Steel reinforcement is introduced into a concrete beam mainly to carry tension, thereby resulting in a reinforced concrete (RC) beam. Components: concrete and reinforcing bars (rebars) Rectangular beam T-beam Tension reinft. Singly reinforced beam Tension reinft. Doubly reinforced beam Comp. reinft.

Distinct yield point Linear relationship within elastic range Beyond the yield point, plastic deformation followed by work hardening Properties of steel stress strain Y.P. Stress-strain curves for steel. No clearly defined yield point Portion of the curve below 1/3 of the ultimate strength is nearly linear Beyond that, it becomes elasto-plastic Properties of concrete stress strain Stress-strain curves for concrete Methods of design 1. Elastic theory (elastic method in CP114 and previous HK codes) 2. Ultimate load / load factor method (load factor method in CP114 and previous HK codes) 3. Limit states design philosophy (BS8110, CP110 and present HK concrete code) Elastic design of an RC section Elastic method At working load, the maximum stress in the concrete is a certain fraction of the cube strength and the maximum stress in the steel is a certain fraction of the yield stress At working load f cu / (FOS) conc f y / (FOS) steel Elastic method Assumptions: Plane sections remain plane after bending The materials are linearly elastic

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
