## Function and Types of Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are used to hold back masses of earth or other loose material where conditions make it impossible to let those masses assume their natural slopes. Such conditions occur when the width of an excavation, cut, or embankment is restricted by conditions of ownership, use of the structure, or economy. For example, in railway or highway construction the width of the right of way is fixed, and the cut or embankment must be contained within that width. Similarly, the basement walls of...

## Introduction

Chapter 3 dealt with the flexural behavior and flexural strength of beams. Beams must also have an adequate safety margin against other types of failure, some of which may be more dangerous than flexural failure. This may be so because of greater uncertainty in predicting certain other modes of collapse, or because of the catastrophic nature of some other types of failure, should they occur. Shear failure of reinforced concrete, more properly called diagonal tension failure. is one example....

## E Heel Slab

The heel slab, too, acts as a cantilever, projecting in this case from the back face of the stem and loaded by surcharge, earth fill, and its own weight. The upward reaction of the soil will be neglected here, for reasons given earlier.

This technique is the basis for producing low-relaxation steel. c.

## Cracking in Flexural Members

All reinforced concrete beams crack, generally starting at loads well below service level, and possibly even prior to loading due to restrained shrinkage. Flexural cracking due to loads is not only inevitable, but actually necessary for the reinforcement to be used effectively. Prior to the formation of flexural cracks, the steel stress is no more I Nilson-Darwin-Dolan I 6.

## Flexural Design Based on Concrete Stress Limits

As in reinforced concrete, problems in prestressed concrete can be separated generally as analysis problems or design problems. For the former, with the applied loads, the concrete cross section, steel area, and the amount and point of application of the prestress force known, Eqs. (19.1) to (19.4) permit the direct calculation of the resulting concrete stresses. The equations in Section 19.7 will predict the flexural strength. However, if the dimensions of a concrete section, the steel area...

## A Monolithic Beamand Girder Floors

A beam-and-girder floor consists of a series of parallel beams supported at their extremities by girders, which in turn frame into concrete columns placed at more or less regular intervals over the entire floor area, as shown in Fig. 18.3. This framework is covered by a one-way reinforced concrete slab, the load from which is transmitted first to the beams and then to the girders and columns. The beams are usually spaced Nilson-Darwin-Dolan Design of Concrete Structures, Thirteenth Edition...

## B Equivalent Loads

The effect of a change in the vertical alignment of a prestressing tendon is to produce a vertical force on the concrete beam. That force, together with the prestressing force acting at the ends of the beam through the tendon anchorages, can be looked upon as a system of external loads. In Fig. 19.2a. for example, a tendon that applies force P at the centroid of the concrete section at the ends of a beam and that has a uniform slope at angle between the ends and midspan introduces a transverse...

## ACI Code Provisions for Torsion Design

The basic principles upon which ACI Code design provisions arc based have been presented in the preceding sections. ACI Code 11.6.3.5 safety provisions require that where Tu - required torsional strength at factored loads Tn nominal torsional strength of member The strength reduction factor 0.75 applies for torsion. Tn is based on Eq. (7.4) with A0 substituted for Aofr thus In accordance with ACI Code 11.6.2, sections located less than a distance d from the face of a support may be designed for...

## Torsion Plus Shear

Members are rarely subjected to torsion alone. The prevalent situation is that of a beam subject to the usual flexural moments and shear forces, which, in addition, must also resist torsional moments. In an uncracked member, shear forces as well as torque produce shear stresses. In a cracked member, both shear and torsion increase the forces in the diagonal struts (Figs. 4.2CW and 7.8 > ), they increase the width of diagonal cracks, and they increase the forces required in the transverse...

## B Stresses Elastic and Section Cracked

When the tensile stress ., exceeds the modulus of rupture, cracks form, as shown in Fig. 3.2d. If the concrete compressive stress is less than approximately i - and the steel stress has not reached the yield point, both materials continue to behave elasti-cally, or very nearly so. This situation generally occurs in structures under normal service conditions and loads, since at these loads the stresses are generally of the order of magnitude just discussed. At this stage, for simplicity and with...

## D Toe Slab

The toe slab acts as a cantilever projecting outward from the face of the stem. It must resist the upward pressures shown in Fig. l.lb or c and the downward load of the toe slab itself, each multiplied by appropriate load factors. The downward load of the earth fill over the toe will be neglected because it is subject to possible erosion or removal. A load factor of 1.6 will be applied to the service load bearing pressures. Comparison of the pressures of Fig. 17.7 and c indicates that for the...

## D Minimum Bonded Reinforcement

To control cracking in beams and one-way prestressed slabs with unbonded tendons. some bonded reinforcement must be added in the form of nonprestressed reinforcing bars, uniformly distributed over the tension zone as close as permissible to the extreme tension fiber. According to ACI Code 18.9.2, the minimum amount of such reinforcement is where A is the area of that part of the cross section between the flexural tension face and the centroid of the gross concrete cross section. Exceptions are...

## D ACI Code Provisions for Underreinforced Beams

While the nominal strength of a member may be computed based on principles of mechanics, the mechanics alone cannot establish safe limits for maximum reinforcement ratios. These limits are defined by the ACI Code. The limitations take two forms. First, the Code addresses the minimum tensile reinforcement strain allowed at nominal strength in the design of beams. Second, the Code defines strength reduction factors that may depend on the tensile strain at nominal strength. Both limitations are...

## Bar Cutoff and Bend Points in Beams

Chapter 3 dealt with moments, flexural stresses, concrete dimensions, and longitudinal bar areas at the critical moment sections of beams. These critical moment sections are generally at the face of the supports (negative bending) and near the middle of the span (positive bending). Occasionally, haunched members having variable depth or width arc used so that the concrete flexural capacity will agree more closely with the variation of bending moment along a span or series of spans. Usually,...

## F Examples of Rectangular Beam Analysis and Design

Flexural problems can be classified broadly as analysis problems or design problems. In analysis problems, the section dimensions, reinforcement, and material strengths are known, and the moment capacity is required. In the case of design problems, the required moment capacity is given, as are the material strengths, and it is required to find the section dimensions and reinforcement. Examples 3.5 and 3.6 illustrate analysis and design, respectively. EXAMPLE 3.5 Flexural strength of a given...

## Integrated Beam Design Example

In this and in the preceding chapters, the several aspects of the design of reinforced concrete beams have been studied more or less separately first the flexural design, then design for shear, and finally for bond and anchorage. The following example is presented to show how the various requirements for beams, which are often in some respects conflicting, are satisfied in the overall design of a representative member.

## Bond Anchorage and Development Length

If the reinforced concrete beam of Fig. 5.1 were constructed using plain round reinforcing bars, and, furthermore, if those bars were to be greased or otherwise lubricated before the concrete were cast, the beam would be very little stronger than if it were built of plain concrete, without reinforcement. If a load were applied, as shown in Fig. 5.1 , the bars would tend to maintain their original length as the beam deflects. The bars would slip longitudinally with respect to the adjacent...

## Flexural Analysis and Design of Beams

The fundamental assumptions upon which the analysis and design of reinforced concrete members are based were introduced in Section 1.8. and the application of those assumptions to the simple case of axial loading was developed in Section 1.9. The student should review Sections 1.8 and 1.9 at this time. In developing methods for the analysis and design of beams in this chapter, the same assumptions apply, and identical concepts will be used. This chapter will include analysis and design for...

## A Concrete Stress Control by Prestressing

Many important features of prestressed concrete can be demonstrated by simple examples. Consider first the plain, unreinforced concrete beam with a rectangular cross section shown in Fig. 19.1 . It carrics a single concentrated load at the center of its span. (The self-weight of the member will be neglected here.) As the load W is gradually applied, longitudinal flexural stresses arc induccd. If the concrete is stressed only within its clastic range, the flexural stress distribution at midspan...

## C I I I

Tensile and compressive forces place nodes in compression because tensile forces are treated as if they pass through the node and apply a compressive force on the far side, or anchorage face. Thus, within the plane of a strut-and-tie model truss, nodal zones arc considered to be in a state of hydrostatic compression, as shown in Fig. 10.6 . Nodal zone dimensions wnl, w,l2, and wn3 are proportional to the applied compressive forces. The dimension of one side of a nodal zone is often determined...

Zero, the proportion of load carried by beam shear is found by linear interpolation. The remaining fraction of the load on the shaded area is assumed to be transmitted directly by the slab to the columns at the four corners of the panel, and the shear stress in the slab computed accordingly (see Section 13-10). Columns in two-way construction must be designed to resist the moments found from analysis of the slab-beam system. The column supporting an edge beam must provide a resisting moment...

## Analysis of Indeterminate Beams and Frames

The individual members that compose a steel or timber structure are fabricated or cut separately and joined together by rivets, bolts, welds, or nails. Unless the joints are specially designed for rigidity, they are too flexible to transfer moments of significant magnitude from one member to another. In contrast, in reinforced concrete structures, as much of the concrete as is practical is placed in one single operation. Reinforcing steel is not terminated at the ends of a member but is...

## B Beams with Constant Eccentricity

The design method presented in the previous section was based on stress conditions at the maximum moment section of a beam, with the maximum value of moment M0 resulting from the self-weight immediately being superimposed. If Pt and e were to be held constant along the span, as is often convenient in pretensioned prestressed construction, then the stress limits and fci would be exceeded elsewhere along the span, where M(, is less than its maximum value. To avoid this condition, the constant...

## C Examples of Analysis and Design of Beams with Tension and Compression Steel

As was the case for beams with only tension reinforcement, doubly reinforced beam problems can be placed in one of two categories analysis problems or design problems. For analysis, in which the concrete dimensions, reinforcement, and material strengths are given, one can find the flexural strength directly from the equations in Section 3.7a or Section 3.7b. First, it must be confirmed that the tensile reinforcement ratio is less than h given by Eq. (3.52), with compression steel stress from...

## A Stresses Elastic and Section Uncracked

As long as the tensile stress in the concrete is smaller than the modulus of rupture, so that no tension cracks develop, the strain and stress distribution as shown in Fig. 3.2c is essentially the same as in an elastic, homogeneous beam (Fig. 3.1 > ). The only difference is the presence of another material, the steel reinforcement. As shown in Section 1.9a, in the elastic range, for any given value of strain, the stress in the steel is n times that of the concrete Eq. (1.6) . In the same...

## Partial Prestressing

Early in the development of prestressed concrete, the goal of prestressing was the complete elimination of concrete tensile stress at service load. This kind of design, in which the service load tensile stress limit fls 0. is often referred to as full prestressing. While full prestressing offers many advantages over nonprestressed construction, some problems can arise. Heavily prestressed beams, particularly those for which full live load is seldom in place, may have excessively large upward...

A reinforced concrete building floor system consists of a continuous one-way slab built monolithically with its supporting beams, as shown in cross section in Fig. PI3.2. Service live load will be 125 psf. Dead loads include a 10 psf allowance for nonstructural lightweight concrete floor fill and surface, and a 10 psf allowance for suspended loads, plus the self-weight of the floor. Using ACI coefficients from Chapter 12, calculate the design moments and shears and design the slab, using...

## F Beamless Flat Slabs with Drop Panels or Column Capitals

By suitably proportioning and reinforcing the slab, it is possible to eliminate supporting beams altogether. The slab is supported directly on the columns. In a rectangular or square region centered on the columns, the slab may be thickened and the column tops flared, as shown in Fig. 18.8. The thickened slab is termed a drop panel and the column flare is referred to as a column capital. Both of these serve a double purpose they increase the shear strength of the floor system in the critical...

## Deflections Due to Long Term Loads

Initial deflections are increased significantly if loads are sustained over a long period of time, due to the effects of shrinkage and creep. These two effects are usually combined in deflection calculations. Creep generally dominates, but for some types of members, shrinkage deflections are large and should be considered separately see Section 6.8 . It was pointed out in Section 2.8 that creep deformations of concrete are directly proportional to the compressive stress up to and beyond the...

## Example 142

If a slab is reinforced in orthogonal directions so that the resisting moment is the same in these two directions, the moment capacity of the slab will be the same along any other line, regardless of direction. Such a slab is said to be isotropicaily reinforced. If, however, the strengths are different in two perpendicular directions, the slab is called orthogonally anisotropic, or simply orthotropic. Only isotropic slabs will be discussed in this section. Orthotropic reinforcement, which is...
