R.C.C CULVERT
Data Collected from Project site:
Cross Section of culvert site.
Clear Span
= 7.50m
Wash slope
= 0.029 1n 100 m
Live Load
= Hs20 = 20 m.ton
Assume:
Thickness of Slab
Thickness of wearing coat
Clear Width of culvert

=50cm
=7cm
=5.0m

Data from R.C.C books:


fc (Compressive Strength of Concrete )
fs (yield or proof strength of steel)
Specific unit weight of R.C.C
Allowable strength of concrete fc
Allowable strength of steel
fs

=210kg/Sqm
=2800kg/Sqm
=2400kg/Sqm
=0.4*210=84kg/Sqm
=0.5*2800=1400kg/Sqm

Design Process:

Hydraulic Calculations:

Fig.1
1-Total wetted cross section area
2-Total wetted perimeter
3-Hydraulic radius

A= 26.265 Sqm
P=24.869m
R=A/P=26.265/24.869=1.056m

4-Velocity of water in wash stream


Where:

V=1/n*S0.5*R2/3
S=Slope of wash bed
n=coefficient of roughness=0.03
V=1/0.03*0.0291/2*1.0562/3=5.88m/sec

5- Discharge:
6- Scour depth:

Q=A*V

Q=26.265*5.88=154.4cum/sec
D.scour=0.475(Q/f)1/3

Where :
f=lacey silt factor=0.9
D. scour=0.475(154.4/0.9)1/3=2.63m below the H.F.L
Max.Scour depth=1.50*D.scour=1.50*2.36=3.94m
7- Average Max.F.L = (1.20+0.74+2.14+2.33+2.33+0.87)/6=1.60m
Therefore:
Scour depth under river bed=3.94-1.60=2.35m
Vertical Clearance above from H.F.L=60cm

Slab Design of culvert:


Effective span of slab= 1.05*7.50=7.875m
Bearing of slab on each support=30cm
L=Effective span=7.50+0.30+0.30=8.10m

Therefore:

Dead load:

fig.2
Self weight of slab
= 0.50*2.40 = 1.20 Ton/m
Weight of wearing coat = 0.07*2.10 = 0.147Ton/m
q = Total dead load = 1.347Ton/m

Dead load bending moment:


B.M. Dead load = q*L2/8= 1.34*8.102/8=11.047 Ton-m

fig.2

Live load bending moment:

fig.3
B .M. live. load=P*Leff./4
Where:
P=Load on each rear tire of vehicle/E
E=1.22+0.06*Leff.=1.22+0.06*8.10=1.706m
Load on each rear tire of vehicle =7.25 ton
P=7.25/1.706=4.24 ton/m
B.M. live .load= P*Lefc./4= 4.25*8.10/4=8.606 Ton-m
Impact Factor, If =15/Lefc.+38=0.33
Iefc.>0.30 , Therefore: Impact Moment=8.606*0.33=2.64 ton-m
Total B.M.= B.M. Dead load + B.M. live load +B.M. Imp.=11.05+8.606+2.84=22.50 ton-m
r=fs/fc=1400/84=16.70
k=n/n +r=10/10+16.70=0.37
fc=210kg/Sqm<275kg//Sqm therefore: n=10

j=1-k/3=1-0.37/3=0.876
Slab thickness :d min.=(2*T.B.M./fs*k*j*b)1/2=(2*22.50*105/84*0.37*0.876*100)1/2=40.65cm
D real=50-(5-2.50/2)=43.75cm, Where:
Thick. of slab=50cm, Protection. layer=5cm,

d steel bar =25mm to be used

Area of Steel bars in 100cm 0f slab:


As=Total B.M./fs*j*d=22.50*105/1400*0.876*43.75=41.93cm2
#9 dia. 25mm in 100cm of slab

Longitudinal or distribution steel bars in 100cm of slab:


As=0.55/(L effect .)1/2 * As main steel bars When the main steel bars is parallel to the
Line of traffic
As=1.20/(L effect.)1/2 *As main s.b, When the main steel bars is right angle to the
Line of traffic
As=0.55/(8.10)1/2*A main steel bars=0.20*41.93=8.36Sqm ,
Hence provide # 8 dia.12 @ 13cm center to center

Design of Curb or Kerb:

Fig.4

Dead load: -Weight of kerb=0.40+0.50/2 *0.75*2.40=0.81 ton/m


Live load Hs20=20 ton , Load on each rear tire=7.25ton
B.M. dead load =q*Leff.2/8=0.81*8.102/8=6.64 ton-m
B.M. live load = 0.10*7.25*8.10=5.87 ton-m
Total B.M.=6.64+5.87=12.51 ton-m

Area of steel for curb:


As=T.B.M./fs*j*d=12.51*105/1400*0.876*75=13.60 Sqm
#4 dia. 25mm in 50cm , also provide #2 dia 25mm in the top of curb.

Check for shear:


Dead Load shear:

Fig.5
Shear Force:
MB=0, RA*8.10-q*8.12/2

RA=(1.347*8.12/2)/8.10=5.45 ton , RA=RB=5.45 t

Live load shear force:

Fig.6
MB=0, RA*8.10-7.25*3.85

RA=10.70 ton

Total Shear Force (Q)=5.45=10.70=16.15 ton


Allowable shear stress: V=0.03*210=6.30 kg/Sqm
Real shear stress : V=Q/b*j*d=16.15*103/100*0.875*43.75=4.21 kg/Sqm
Real shear stress =4.21kgsqm<6.30 kg/ Sqm , Hence safe against shear force

Check for bond shear stress:


Real bond shear stress : V bond=Q/0*j*d , Where: 0= # of unbent steel bars *Perimeter of bar
Here: From 9 steel bars , 3 bars is unbent in 100 cm
0 = 3*pai*2.25 = 3*3.14*2.25 = 23.55
Real bond stress = 16.15*103/23.55*0.87*43.75 = 18kg/Sqm
Allowable shear stress = 0.1*fc = 0.1*210 = 21kg/Sqm
Therefore:
Real shear stress=18kg/Sqm<Allowable shear stress=21kg/Sqm
Hence safe against bond shear stress

Design of R.C.C Bridge:


Example:

Clear span according to the site


Width of the bridge with curbs
Width of curb
Width of beam
Depth of beam = (span/17)
Live load
Thickness of slab (assume)
Thickness of wearing coat

= 14m
= 5m
= 0.60m
= 0.40m
= 0.80m
= Hs20
= 0.20m
= 0.07m

Design of slab:
Weight of slab
= 0.20*2.40*= 0.48 ton
Weight of wearing coat = 0.07*2.20 = 0.154 ton
Total weight (q)
= 0.48+0.154 = 0.634 ton
B.M. for dead load

= q*l2/8 = 0.634*1.072/10 = 0.073 ton-m

Fig.7
B.M. for live load = (0.80*1.64*l+1/16) P20 = (0.80*1.64*1.07+1/16) 7.25 = 0.998 ton-m
Impact factor

= 15/span+38 = 15/14+38 = 0.30

B.M. Impact

= 0.30*0.998 = 0.299 ton-m

Total B.M.

= 0.072+0.998+0.299 = 1.369 ton-m

Area of steel bars:


fc = 100 kg/cm2
Min.depth of slab
Real depth of slab
Therefore real depth

fs= 1400 kg/cm2


j = 0.86
k = 0.42
= (2*B.M/fc* k * j * b)0.50
= (2*1.369*105/100*0.42*0.86*100)0.50 = 8.70 cm
= (20-5+1.60/2) = 14.20 cm use dia of 16 mm bar with
5cm protection layer in 2 faces of slab
= 14.20 cm > Min depth = 8.70 cm
O.K.

As = B.M/fs * j * d
= 1.396 * 105/1400 * 0.86 * 14.20 = 8.16 cm2
Spacing of steel bars in 1m of slab = 100*2.009/8.16 = 24.6 cm say 20 cm c/c
Use # 5 dia 16 mm bars @ 20 cm center to center (As = 10.048 cm2)
Distribution or longitudinal steel bars:
As = (120/(L)0.5 ) /100 = (120/1.070.5)/100 = 1.16 > 0.67

therefore :

As = 0.67 * 10 .048 = 6.73 cm2


Spacing = 100 * 1.13/6.73 = 17 cm center to center, Use # 7 dia 12mm @ 17 cm
center to center.
Design of Interior beam:
Effective length of beam

= 14+.06 = 14.60 m

Dead load:
Weight of slab on beam
Weight of wearing coat
Self load of beam

= 1.47* 0.20* 2.40 = 0.735 m.ton


= 1.47* 0.07* 2.20 = 0.226 m.ton
= 0.80* 0.40* 2.50 = 0.80 m.ton

Total load (q)


B. Moment of dead load:

= 1.76 M.Ton
B.M = q* span2/8 = 1.76* 14.62/8 = 46.89 Ton-m

B. Moment for live load:


Distribution of Wheel load on longitudinal beam = Span1/1.89 for one line of traffic.
Where: Span1 is center to center distance between two beams, and 1.89 is constant
Therefore : Distrib. wheel load on long. beam
= 1.47/1.89 = 0.742
Exerted load from rear tire of vehicle = 7.25* 0.742 = 5.379 Ton
Exerted load from front tire of vehicle = 3.625/2 = 1.82 * 0.742 = 1.345 Ton
Where: 3.625 ton is load on front wheel of vehicle .

Total Mr = 0 = -Rl*14.60 .+ 5.38*10.84 + 1.345*2.34 + 5.38*6.59 = 6.638 ton-m


Threfore Rl = 6.638 ton-m.
y2/8.01 = 6.59/14.60
y3/8.01 = 2.34/14.60

y2 = 3.615
y3 = 1.284

y1/6.59 = 3.76/14.60

y1 = 1.697

Max.B.Moment = 3.615*5.38 + 1.697*5.38 +1.284*1.345 = 30.305 ton-m


Impact factor

= 15/14.60+38 = 0.285

Impact Moment = 0.285* Max.B.M. = 0.285*30.305 = 8.637 ton-m


Total B.M. in the middle of span = Mdead load+Max.B.M+ M.impact
= 46.895+30.305+8.637 = 85.837 ton-m
Shear stress:
Shear of dead load:

q = 1.76 ton/m
RA = Qmax = 1.76*14.60/2 = 12.848 ton

Fig.10
Shear of live load:

Fig.11
MA = -RB* 14.60+ 7.25*14.60+ 5.38*10.35+ 1.34*6.10 = 0
RB = 11.626
Qmax = RB = 11.626 ton
RA = 2.349 ton
Shear of Impact :

Impact factor = 0.285

Qmax. imp. = 0.265* Qmax.live load = 0.285*11.626 = 3.31 ton

Total shear force = 12.848 + 11.626 + 3.31 = 27.784 ton

Effective depth of beam = 100- 3.60*3/2 3.6-5 = 86 cm where:


Space between each row of steel bars dia of bar = 36 mm = 3.60cm , total # of rows is = 3,
Protection layer = 5 cm
Area of steel bars in beam:

As = B.M/fs*(deff.-t/2) *j = 85.796 105/1400(86-20/2) 0.86 = 97.762 cm2


Where : (t ) is thickness of slab
AS = 97.762 therefore : # 10 dia 36 (As = 101.80 cm2)

Check the section of beam:

P = As/b*d = 101.80/147 * 86 =0.0052


P*n = 0.0052 * 10 = 0.052
t/d = 20/86 =0.232
1/2p*n = 1/2 * 0.0052*10 = 9.60 j = 6-6t/d+2(t/d)2+(t/d)3* (1/2pn)
j = 0.825
6-3t/d

k = n*p +1/2(t/d)2 = 10* 0.0052+ (20/86)2 = 0.28


n*p + t/d
10*0.0052+20/86
Therefore : As1 = M/fs*j * d = 85.796 *105/1400 * 0.825 *86 = 86.37cm2
As = 101.80< As1 = 86.37 cm2 therefore the section is O.K
Area of steel bars for shear force:

Shear stress = V= Qmax/b*j*d = 27.784*103/40* 86 * 0.825 = 9.79 kg/cm2


fc = 250 kg/cm2

Allowable shear stress = 0.03 * 250 = 7.50


Mark of concrete = 250 kg/cm2
S = 2.2 (coefficient of safety)

T.c= Tensile shear strength of concrete = 20.0

Allowable shear stress (V) = Tc/S = 20/2.2 = 9.09


V= 9.79 > V= 9.09
From other hand : V = 9.79 < Tc= 20,
beam.

Therefore, need for shear steel bars


There fore no need to change the section of the

Now determine the distance from where shear steel bars required:
Lx = (V-V/V)*Span/2 = (9.79-9.09/9.09)*14.6/2 = 0.56m = 56 cm
Resultant shear stress:R = 0.50(V+V) B*Lx = 0.50(9.79+9.09) 40* 56 = 21145 kg
R = 21245kg = 21.145 ton
We will use stirrup dia 10 mm in the spacing of 10 cm , in the distance of 56 cm
No of stirrups (Ns) = 56/10 = 5.6 , say 6 stirrups. m = 2 where (m) is number of stirrup
arms.
Shear force to support by stirrups Ts = Ns * m * Qp/ S
where :
Qp = plasticity limit of steel bars = 2500 kg/cm2 , and S=2.2 (coeff. of safety)
Ts = (6*2) *2500/2.2 = 13636.36 kg = 13.636 ton
Shear stress to support by stirrups Vs = m*As.s*Qp/ Spacing*b =2*0.785*2500/10*40= 9.813 kg/cm2
Shear stress to support by main bent steel bars: Tm. bar = 0.80 R-Ts = 0.8*21.145- 13.636= 3.28 ton
Therefore from the table of steel bars strength the dia of 36 mm has strength =18897
kg/cm2 hence no need to bent the main steel bars, however one main bar will be bent up.
Note :

If the depth of the beam exceed 60cm skin reinforcement on both faces ob web or beam in
the form of Longitudinal bars (min 12 mm bars spacing not more than 20 cm should be
provided. Such reinforcement on each face should be at lest 0.05% of cross section area.

Solution:

Force per meter length of abutment = 4.0 /5 = 0.80 ton
b. Force due to temperature variation = 0.15 * total load per meter width of

Sliding:
S.Fsliding = V.Forces * f / H.Forces = 41.70 * 0.60 / 5.592 = 4.47
S.F sliding = 4.47 >> 1.4 Hence abutment is safe against sliding .

Assume slab thickness

: 18 m
: 4.39m
: 94.38
: 97.33
: 2.50 m
: Camel with load
: 32 ton/sqm
: 15 cm

Design process:

Height (depth) of beam : (span/15 to 20) for light load : 18/15 = 1.20 m
Width of the beam
: 2/5 * depth = 2/5 * 1.20 = 0.48 m, assume 0.40 m
Slab design :

Dead load :
Dead load of slab : 0.15 * 2400 = 360 kg/m
Live load :
Weight of camel with load : 160 ser = 160 * 7 = 1,120 kg
Live load = 1120/1.5 = 746.70 kg/m2 , Live load = 750 kg/m2
Where: (1.5 m) distance between two legs of camel.

Fig 17
Total load (q) = Dead load + Live load = 360 + 750 = 1,110 kg/m2
Leffect. = 1.70 * 1.05 = 1.785m
B.Mmax. = q * Leff.2/8 = 1,110 * 1.7852/8 = 442 kg-m
Area of Steel in one meter of span = As= B.M/fs* J*d = 442 *102/1400 * 0.876 * 15 = 442*102/18396
As = 2.403 cm2
Hence provide # 5 dia 8mm @ 20cm center to center (As = 2.51cm2 > 2.41cm2)
Design of beam:

Dead load from slab : 1,110 * span/2 = 1,110*1.70/2 = 944 kg/m

16

Dead load of beam : b*h*2400 = 0.40* 1.20*2400 = 960 kg/m


Dead load from hand rail : 30kg/m
Total load (q) = 944.0+ 960.0+ 30.0 = 1,934.0 kg/m
Effective length of beam = 18*1.05 = 18.90 m
B.Mmax. = q*Leff.2/8 = 1,934*18.902/8 = 86,355.52 kg-m
Area of steel bars in beam:
As = B.M/fs*J*d = 86,355.52*102/1400*0876*120 = 8,635,552/147,168 = 58.80 cm2
As = 58.80cm2 , Hence provide # 12 dia 25mm bars in two rows.

Selection of Steel Section :

Moment of Inertia for composite section (Steel & concrete)


Note : To work together the RCC & steel , the span of RCC slab between two I beam will
decrease 10 times , therefore

Ix1 = 2*903/12+(30*43/12+265080)+(30*43/12+265080)
Ix1 = 121500+265240+265240 = 651,980cm4

Design of fillet welding ( Design of suitable welded connection between the web and the Flange):
Size of Plate Girder : h = 90 cm , Flange size: wide= 30 cm , T= 4cm
Clear Span of bridge : 23 m
Design Process :
Horizontal shear per cm length of plate girder :
Q1 = F/I *(A*Y) , F = F1*Span/2
F1 = (Dead load + Live load) per (m)length
of girder
F1 = 1.30 + 6.78 = 8.08 ton/m, F = 8080*23/2 = 92,920 kg
Ix1 = 651.980 cm4,
Y(center of gravity) = 49 cm,
A*Y = 120*49 = 5,880 cm3

A = 30*4 =120cm

Q1 = 92,920/651,980*(5,880) = 838.015 kg/cm


Vertical loaded Flange (Comp. Flange) :
F1 = 8.08 ton/m = 8080 kg/m = 80.80 kg/cm
Resultant Shear (Q) :
Q = (Q12 + F1)1/2 = (838.0152 + 80.802)1/2 = 841.90 kg/cm
Welded shall be applied on both sides of the Web plate for top Flange as well as for
bottom Flange. Weld could be continuous.

Continuous weld :

Let (S) be the size of weld :

21

Strength of weld per cm length = 2*s*k*Pq ,


Pq = Permissible stress = 1100 kg

Where : k = coeff. = 0.7

S = Q/2*k*Pq = 841.90/2*0.70*1100 = 0.54 cm = 5.40 mm


S = 5.4 mm < 8 mm (minimum thick.of weld)
O.K
But for more safety we will take 10 mm
therefore

S = 1cm

Design the Butt welding (for Girder) :

Strength of the Joint = L * t * Pt


Where : L = Effective length of girder , t = Effict. Throat (0.70*S = 0.70 *1.0 = 0.70 cm)
For single (V) type butt welding = 5/8*S = 5/8*1 = 5/8 cm
Pt = permissible tensile stress = 1500 kg/cm2
Strength of the Joint = L*t*Pt = 45*5/8 *1500 = 42,187.50 kg OK

Calculation the length of suspenders :
Suspenders are provided at (L1 = 3'-6") intervals .
Dip = Span/15 = 270/15 = 18 feet

(Central dip of the main cables)

Inverted Dip = Span/60 = 270/60 = 4'-6"


Length of least suspender (assume) = 2 feet
Height of Tower = Dip + Inv.Dip + Length of least suspen. = 18' + 4'-6" + 2' = 24'-6"

Horizontal Thrust :H = w * Span2/8d = (0.3096 * 2702)/8*18 = 156.735 kips

Using :

Vertical Thrust :

V = w * Span/2 = 0.3096 *270/2 = 41.796 kips

Tension in cable :

T = ((H)2 + (V)2)1/2 = ((156.735)2 + (41.796)2)1/2 = 162.212 kips

Dia (1) inch cable (19)wires each (0.2) inch dia.

Breaking Load = 104,500 lbs

Taking factor of safety = 3.2

Working Load = 104,500/3.2 = 32,656.25 lbs
