Compression
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
bending.
Reinforcement:

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

DESIGN PROJECT
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
Earthquake Engineering
Design Philosophy
Provide sufficient strength to resist a moderate earthquake without significant structural damage
Provide sufficient ductility to endure a large earthquake without structural collapse (but with
structural damage)
