Fundamental Assumptions for Reinforced Concrete Design

The fundamental assumptions for reinforced concrete design permit one to predict by calculation the performance of reinforced concrete members. Of course, the structural mechanics in conjunction with extensive testing are used as a base for the design and ...

Modulus of Rupture of Concrete Beam

Modulus of rupture is a measure of the tensile strength of concrete beams or slabs. Flexural strength identifies the amount of stress and force an unreinforced concrete slab, beam or other structure can withstand such that it resists any bending ...

Reinforced Concrete Beam Detailing According to ACI Code

Clearly, the detailing of the reinforced concrete members is the key to good design and execution of work at the site.That is why poor detailing of reinforcement makes the structure undergo cracking, excessive deflection, or even collapse.Reinforcements resist tensile forces. ...

Types of Steel Beam Connections and their Details

There are various types of steel beam connections used in structures. Steel beam connections are categorized into two groups namely framed and seated connections.In the framed steel beam connections, the beam is connected to the supporting steel element through fittings ...

Steel Corrugated Webs in Bridge Girders

1. Steel Corrugated Webs – Introduction High-performance steels, which are becoming increasingly available, are well suited for highway bridge applications due to their high strength, excellent toughness, as well as good weld ability and corrosion resistance.These steels have the potential to ...

STRENGTHENING OF RINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS

Reinforced concrete beams need strengthening when the existing steel bars in the beam are unsafe or insufficient, or when the loads applied to the beam are increased. In such cases, there are different solutions that could be followed:I-ADDING REINFORCEMENT STEEL ...
