Design Methods of Reinforced Concrete Structure 2.1 General View Two philosophies of design for reinforced concrete have long been prevalent. Working stress Design (WSD) was the principle method used from the early 1900s until the early 1960s. after the 1963 edition of the ACI code, there was a rapid transition to Ultimate Strength Design , largely because of its more rational approach. Ultimate strength design , referred to in the Code as the strength Design Method (SDM) is conceptually more realistic in its approach to structural safety and reliability at the strength limit state.

Working Stress Design Method Stresses are computed in both the concrete and steel using principles of mechanics that include consideration of composite behavior Actual Stresses < Allowable Stresses

Strength Design Method The Strength of members is computed at ultimate capacity Load Factors are applied to the loads Internal forces are computed from the factored loads   Required Strength < Actual Strength

aci 318 Early 1900s: WSD was mainly used.

ACI 318-56: USD was first introduced.

ACI 318-63: Treated WSD and USD on equal basis.

ACI 318-71: Based entirely on strength approach (USD).

WSD was small part called Alternate Design Method (ADM).

ACI 318-77: ADM moved to Appendix A. USD was called Strength Design Method.

ACI 318-83: ADM moved to Appendix B.

ACI 318-89: ADM back to Appendix A.

ACI 318-99: Limit State at Failure Approach was introduced

ACI 318-02: Change load factor to 1.2DL + 1.6LL.

2.2 Elastic Flexural Behavior of Beams Elastic design is considered valid for the homogeneous plain concrete beam as long as the tensile stress does not exceed the modulus of rupture f r . elastic design can also be applied to reinforced concrete beam using the working stress design method (WSD) approach. The beam is a structural member used to support the internal moments and shears. It would be called a beam-column if a compressive force existed. C = T
M = C*(jd)
= T*(jd)

The stress in the block is defined as:

σ = (M*y) / I

2.3 Flexure Stress Stages of Beams

By consider any reinforced concrete beam carry an incrementally accumulative increase load, the beam will pass through sex stress stages which are: Stage 1: Elastic Uncracked Stage: The applied load on beam less than the load which cause cracking.

Stage 2: Elastic Cracked- threshold Stage: The applied load make the bottom fiber stress equal to modulus of rupture of concrete.

Stage 3: Elastic Cracked Stage : The external applied load cause the bottom fibers to equal to modulus of rupture of the concrete. Entire concrete section was effective, steel bar at tension side has same strain as surrounding concrete.

Stage 4: Inelastic Cracking Stage : The tensile strength of the concrete exceeds the rupture f r and cracks develop. The neutral axis shifts upward and cracks extend to neutral axis. Concrete loses tensile strength and steel starts working effectively and resists the entire tensile load.

Stage 5: Ultimate Strength Stage: The reinforcement yields.

Stage 6: Failure Stage : The material stresses will be exceed its corresponding capacity .

2.4 Development of Flexural Equations This is important not only as acceptable alternative ACI design method , but also for the later evaluation of crack width under service loads. Under the action of transverse loads on a beam strains, normal stresses and internal forces developed on a cross section are as shown in Figure 2.1. Stage 1: Before Cracking (Uneconomical).

Stage 3: After Cracking(Service Stage).

Stage 6: Ultimate (Failure). o Uncracked Section 4

2.5 Alternative Design Method Alternative Method of Design for structures and their elements is the same as for Limit state Method except for safety considerations. To be more specific, Codal provision for durability, fire resistance, detailing of reinforcement, serviceability, stability, etc remain the same as for Limit Stress Method. However, the design loads are characteristic loads and the stresses developed due to loads shall be within the corresponding permissible stresses (i.e. characteristic strength divided by Factor of Safety).

The strength design method can be attributed to several factors including:

The uniform treatment of all types of loads, i.e. all load factors are equel to unity. The different variability of different types of loads (dead and live load) is not acknowledged.

The unknown factor of safety against failure (F.S. is not known explicitly) .

The typically more conservative designs, which generally require more reinforcement or larger member sizes for the same design moments when compared to the strength design method.

2.6 BASIC ASSUMPTIONS AND PERMISSIBLE STRESSES Basic Assumptions Basic assumptions for design applicable to flexural and compression members are as follows:

 (a) Plane section before bending remains plane after bending. (b) The tensile stress of concrete is neglected unless otherwise mentioned. (c) The strain-stress relation for concrete as well as for steel reinforcement is linear. (d) Perfect bond between steel and concrete.

Permissible Stresses Load factors for all types of loads are taken to be unity for this design method. Permissible stresses are defined as characteristic strength divided by factor of safety. The factor of safety is not unique values either for concrete or for steel; therefore, the permissible stresses at service load must not exceed the following :

  Flexure extreme fiber stress in compression: 0.45 f’c.  Tensile stress in reinforcement Grade 40 and 50 (fy=280 or 300 MPa) : 138 MPa (20,000 psi). Grade 60 (fy=420) : 165.5 MPa (24,000 psi).  Modulus of elasticity for steel reinforcement 200 GPa (29,000 psi).  Modular Ratio n = E s /E c .  Transformed Section : Substitute steel area with (nAs) of fictitious concrete. 

Location of neutral axis depends on whether we are analyzing or designing a section.
