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 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 • The tensile strength of concrete is ignored
