Home Work #1 An equilateral triangle ABC is to be installed at a corner of a tunnel complex at a municipal wastewater treatment plant to facilitate a passage of a utility vehicle. The equivalent uniformly distributed load intensity of the vehicle may be assumed to be 300 psf. Both fixed edges, AB and AC, are 15 ft long and the free edge BC is computed to be 15 2 (21.21) ft. Assume an identical reinforcement is placed in both x and y directions so that nx M and ny M are the same. Assuming a load factor of 1.7 for both the live load (without an impact allowance) and the dead load of the concrete slab, determine the ultimate bending moment capacity required for the slab. 15’ C A B 15’ 1
