Axial loading: uniform compression (no bending).
o Ultimate strength: squash load acts through the plastic centroid.
Eccentric loading (eccentric in relation to the plastic centroid): combined compression and

Tutorial 4: Stress Analysis
For the Bridge of Tutelage, ignoring shrinkage stresses, calculate (for sagging and hogging sections):
the nominal cracking moments Mcr at 28 days (36.6 kNm, sagging: 81.3 kNm, hoggin

Tutorial 5: Deflections
The Bridge of Tutelage is loaded by its self-weight (applied at 28 days) and an occasional live load of 3 kPa
(uniformly distributed over both spans).
Using transformed section properties, estimate the eff

1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
A 10-storey reinforced-concrete office building known as the Learning
Tower of Meckering is to be constructed in Meckering, WA. The
building site is virtually level, with und
