CIVL 232 Design of Structural Concrete Assignment 2 (Tuesday, 2 March 2004) Singly reinforced sections in bending, moment redistribution 2.1 (a) Describe the failure characteristics of an under-reinforced beam and an over- reinforced beam. (b) Derive the formula for the design of a singly reinforced rectangular section in bending: z f M A y s 95 . 0 = where ( ) 9 . 0 / 25 . 0 5 . 0 K d z + = cu f bd M K 2 = (c) Derive the condition to ensure yielding of tension steel at the ultimate limit state. What value does BS 8110 limit the depth of neutral axis to? 2.2 A simply supported rectangular beam of 7.5 m span shown in Fig. 2.2 carries dead (including self-weight) and imposed loads of 12 kN/m and 8 kN/m, respectively. The beam dimensions are b x h = 250 x 500 mm. Calculate the area of reinforcement required. f cu = 30 N/mm 2 , f y = 460 N/mm 2 , d = ( h – 50) mm. 7500 250 500 G k = 12kN/m, Q k = 8kN/m A s Fig. 2.2 2.3 A reinforced concrete beam of 300 mm wide and 600 mm deep is required to span 6 m, as shown in Fig. 2.3. The beam carries dead and loads of 25 kN/m and 19 kN/m, respectively. Design the beam section for bending.

### What students are saying

• 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.
