3 1 0 4
This course covers the different types of philosophies related to Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures with emphasis on Limit State Method. The design of Basic elements such as slab, beam, column and footing which form part of any structural system with reference to Indian standard code of practice for Reinforced Concrete Structures and Design Aids are included. At the end of course the student shall be in a position to design the basic elements of reinforced concrete structures.
UNIT I METHODS OF DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES 12
Concept of Elastic method, ultimate load method and limit state method – Advantages of Limit State Method over other methods – Design codes and specification – Limit State philosophy as detailed in IS code – Design of flexural members and slabs by working stress method – Principles of Design of Liquid retaining structures – Properties of un-cracked section – Calculation of thickness and reinforcement for Liquid retaining structure
UNIT II LIMIT STATE DESIGN FOR FLEXURE 12
Analysis and design of one way and two way rectangular slab subjected to uniformly distributed load for various boundary conditions and corner effects – Analysis and design of singly and doubly reinforced rectangular and flanged beams
UNIT III LIMIT STATE DESIGN FOR BOND, ANCHORAGE SHEAR & TORSION 12
Behaviour of RC members in bond and Anchorage - Design requirements as per current code - Behaviour of RC beams in shear and torsion - Design of RC members for combined bending shear and torsion.
UNIT IV LIMIT STATE DESIGN OF COLUMNS
Types of columns – Braced and unbraced columns – Design of short column for axial, uniaxial and biaxial bending – Design of long columns.
UNIT V LIMIT STATE DESIGN OF FOOTING AND DETAILING 12
Design of wall footing – Design of axially and eccentrically loaded rectangular footing – Design of combined rectangular footing for two columns only – Standard method of detailing RC beams, slabs and columns – Special requirements of detailing with reference to erection process.
