1.054/1.541 Mechanics and Design of Concrete Structures Spring 2004 Prof. Oral Buyukozturk 1 / 7 Massachusetts Institute of Technology 1.054/1.541 Mechanics and Design of Concrete Structures (3-0-9) Outline 1 Introduction / Design Criteria for Reinforced Concrete Structures ± Structural design o Definition of design: Determination of the general shape and all specific dimensions of a particular structure so that it will perform the function for which it is created and will safely withstand the influences which will act on it throughout its useful life. Æ Principles of mechanics, structural analysis, behavioral knowledge in structures and materials. Æ Engineering experience and intuition. Æ (a) Function, (b) strength with safety requirements will vary for structures. Æ Influences and structural response: o Structural mechanics: A tool that permits one to predict the response (with a required level of accuracy, and a good degree of certainty) of a structure to defined influences. Influences Structure Structural response Failure (strength) Failure mode Deformations Cracking Stresses Motion Loads Temperature fluctuations Foundation settlements Time effects Corrosion Earthquakes Other environmental effects

1.054/1.541 Mechanics and Design of Concrete Structures Spring 2004 Prof. Oral Buyukozturk Outline 1 o Role of the designer (engineer) of a structure ± Design criteria for concrete o Two schools of thoughts 1. Base strength predictions on nonlinear theory using actual σ - ε relation ² 1897 – M.R. von Thullie (flexural theory) ² 1899 – W. Ritter (parabolic stress distribution theory] 2. Straight-line theory (elastic) ² 1900 – E. Coignet and N. de Tedesco (the straight-line (elastic) theory of concrete behavior) o Working Stress Design (WSD) – Elastic theory 1. Assess loads (service loads) (Building Code Requirements) 2.
