CHAPTER 2
DESIGN OF BEAMS FOR FLEXURE USING WORKING STRESS DESIGN (WSD)
METHODS
2.1 Basic Assumption:
1. A section which is plane before bending remains plane after bending. This implies strains across section are
linearly varying. This is true for most section of flexural member except deep beam where shear deformation is
significant.
2. Beam section behaves elastically when subjected to service load moment. This implies stress in the concrete
varies linearly from zero at neutral axis to a maximum at the extreme fiber.
3. Tensile strength of concrete is ignored. The reinforcement assumed to takes all the tension due to flexure.
4. Perfect bond exist between steel bars and concrete such that no slip occurs. This is possible if adequate
development length of bars and concrete cover are provided.
5. The modular ratio,
c s
E E n
, may be taken as the nearest whole number (but not less than 6 or more than
15). In doubly reinforced sections, to consider creep of concrete in compression zone an effective modular ratio
of
c s
E E 2
shall be used to transform compression reinforcement for stress computation.

## 2.3 Type of Singly Reinforced Beam Sections-Based on Modes of Stresses

Depending on the amount of steel used by section, singly reinforced sections are divided into three: Balanced section,
Over-reinforced section and Under-reinforced section.
a) Balanced Section: The most economical section in terms of material usage. In this section, the maximum
stresses in both the reinforcement and the concrete reach simultaneously the respective permissible value.

b) Over-reinforced Section if >
b
: Over-reinforced sections are those that contain more reinforcement
than the balanced one. Hence, as the applied moment is increased, the maximum stress in concrete reaches its permissible
value first; and by the time the stress in reinforcement reaches its permissible stress, the concrete is over stressed.
Therefore, the stresses in concrete and steel for such section are as follow:

Here, an increase of load produces over stress in concrete earlier than the reinforcement; as a result the concrete crushes
in compression. Such failure is sudden and occurs without warning. For this reasons, over-reinforced section is not
recommended in design.
c) Under-reinforced Section if <
b
: Under reinforced sections are those that contain less reinforcement
than the balanced one. In such sections, the tensile reinforcement is insufficient to develop the full strength of the
concrete in compression, so that when the reinforcement is fully stressed, the concrete is under-stressed. Therefore, the
stresses in concrete and steel for such section are as follow:
allow s s
f f

allow c c

Here, failure is more gradual than over-reinforced section. As when steel is over-stressed, the steel yields but is still able
to support the yield stress since steel is a ductile material. Therefore, from both safety and economic point of view, it is
recommended to design section of flexural member as under-reinforced section.

2.4 Control of Deflection
The deflection of structure or part of structure shall not adversely affect the appearance or efficiency of structure or
finishes or partitions. For beams and slabs, the vertical deflection limits may generally be assumed to be satisfied
provided that the minimum depth required by deflection specified by code is maintained.
ACI code provide minimum depth required by beams and one-way slabs in terms of span length as given in table below
can be used as a crude estimate of initial depth to control deflection.

2.5 Doubly-Reinforced Rectangular Beam Section
If the section of RC beam is limited in dimension (usually depth), it can not develop the compressive force required to
resist the applied bending moment as singly reinforced section. That is, the applied moment is greater than the balanced
moment capacity of singly reinforced section. For small increase of moment over the balanced one, over-reinforced
section can be used, which is not recommended in design.
A more economical and safe way of designing section in such case is to provide reinforcement in compression zone of
RC section. This section termed as doubly reinforced. Doubly reinforced section can also be used if the required depth of
section of beam as singly reinforced is unacceptable. The purpose of reinforcement in compression zone of RC section is
to assist the concrete in resisting compressive force and to keep the neutral axis at the ideal position ensuring balanced
type failure.
In doubly reinforced beam section, concrete and steel act together to take compression. If both steel and concrete behave
elastically, the stress in compression steel is

(modular ratio) times the concrete stress at the same level.

However, concrete under sustained compressive stress deforms continuously with time due to creep effect and concrete is
also subjected to shrinkage over a period of time. Whereas these time dependent effects do not occur in steel. As RC
beam deforms, even at low loading, there is a continuous transfer of stress from concrete to compression steel. Therefore,
the actual stress in compression steel is larger than that computed on the basis of elastic behavior of materials. i.e

2.6 Design Equation for Doubly-Reinforced Rectangular Section
Consider a doubly reinforced rectangular section subjected to a service load moment,
M
as shown below.
Two couples method is used to determine the required areas of tension and compression reinforcement by treating
doubly reinforced section into two parts. The total resisting moment is equal to the sum of two resisting couples: one of
which is provided by given cross-section of beam without compression reinforcement with a partial tension steel area,
1 s
A
that balance concrete in compression; and the other by compression steel,
1
s
A and the remainder of tension steel
area,
2 s
A
. Thus, the section with compression steel is designed as balanced reinforced section in such away that
compression steel and extra tension steel are proportioned by maintaining the balanced neutral axis depth.

2.7 Flanged Section (T- or L-section) under Flexure
In construction of building structures, the slab is usually supported by a system of beams. If the connection between the
beam and the slab adequately transmit longitudinal shear force, then the beam and slab together may act as a
homogeneous section of T- or L-forms. For loaded beam-slab if subjected to a moment which produces compression at
the top surface, the slab therefore becomes parts of the compression flange of the beam, resulting in a greater zone of
compression and giving a more economical section. For a reinforced concrete beam-slab section, adequate connection
between the beam and the slab is easily provided by casting the section as monolithic, and by extending beam-stirrups
and bent bars up into the slab.
It is known that the compressive stress caused by flexure in the upper flange decreases as the distance from the web
increases. This is because the shear deformation of flange relieves some of compressive stresses as the element becomes
more remote to the web. Therefore, this makes exact analysis of flanged section of infinite wide-flange complex. In order
to simplify the design of flanged section of infinite wide-flange, it is usual to assume a uniform stress over a reduced
width of flange. This reduced width is known as effective width. Effective width of flange is determined equating forces
on compressive flange due to actual compressive stress on infinite wide-flange with equivalent uniform compressive
stress on reduced width of flange.
The effective width has been found to depend primarily on the type loading, span length, spacing of beams, width of the
web, and the relative thickness of the slab with respect to the total beam depth. For practical design of flanged section,
effective width of flange recommended by codes may be used.

2.8 Design of Flanged beams for Flexure
Design of flanged beams are made depending on the sign of design moment develop in the section producing either
tension or compression on flange side of beam. If the design moment developed in section produces tension on flange
side, the section is to be designed as if it were rectangular beam of width equal to the width of the web of the section. For
such section, no advantage is gained in using slab as flange of section.
On other hand, if the design moment developed in section produces compression on flange side, the section is to be
designed depending on the position the neutral axis. The position of the neutral axis depends up of the proportions of the
cross-section, the amount of tension steel, and the strength of the materials. If the neutral axis lies in the flange, the
section is to be designed as if it were a rectangular beam of width equal to the effective flange width. When the neutral
axis lies in the web, the section is to be designed as T-beam section.

2.9 Design Equations of T-beam Section -Working Stress (Elastic) Method

LIMIT STATE DESIGN FOR FLEXURE AND SERVICEABILITY LIMIT STATE
3.1. Basic Assumptions:
Assumption made for determining ultimate resistance of a member for flexure and axial force according to EBCS-2/95
are,
1. A section which is plane before bending remains plane after bending. This implies strains across section are
linearly varying. This is true for most section of flexural member except deep beam where shear deformation is
significant.
2. The reinforcement is subjected to the same variations in the strain as the adjacent concrete. This implies there is no
slip between steel bars and the adjacent concrete. This is possible if adequate development length of bars and
concrete cover are provided.
3. Tensile strength of concrete is ignored. The reinforcement assumed to takes all the tension due to flexure.
4. The maximum compressive stain in concrete when a section complete plastic deformation is taken to be
0035 . 0
cu

## in bending (simple or compound)

002 . 0
cu

in axial compression
5. The maximum tensile strain in the reinforcement is taken to 0.01. This limit assumed to limit crack-width with in
tension zone of section to the acceptable limit.
6. Either idealized parabola-rectangle stress distribution or equivalent rectangle stress distribution for concrete in
compression zone given by code as shown below shall be used in derivation of design equation.
The ultimate resistance of section may be determined using equilibrium of both internal and external forces based on the
stress block obtained from the basic assumption.

strength limit state method as well. In treating flanged section using strength limit state method, it is convenient to adopt

iii) If the flange of the section is on the tension side when subjected to a moment, flanged section is designed as if it
were a rectangular section with width equal to the width of the web,

.
Another similar approach:
Reinforced concrete floors or roofs are monolithic and hence, a part of the slab will act with the upper part of
the beam to resist longitudinal compression. The resulting beam cross-section is, then, T-shaped (inverted L),
rather than rectangular with the slab forming the beam flange where as part of the beam projecting below the
slab forms the web or stem.

The T-sections provide a large concrete cross-sectional area of the flange to resist the compressive force.
Hence, T-sections are very advantageous in simply supported spans to resist large positive bending moment,
where as the inverted T-sections have the added advantage in cantilever beam to resist negative moment.
As the longitudinal compressive stress varies across the flange width of same level, it is convenient in design to
make use of an effective flange width (may be smaller than the actual width) which is considered to be
uniformly stressed.

Cover to Reinforcements
The concrete cover is the distance between the outermost surface of reinforcement (usually stirrups) and
the nearest concrete surface.
The thickness of cover required depends both upon the exposure conditions and on the concrete quality.
To transmit bond forces safely, and to ensure adequate compaction, the concrete cover should never be
less than:
(a) or
n
( 40mm), or
(b) ( + 5mm) or (
n
+ 5mm) if d

Durability and control of crack width is related with finishing and provision of adequate cover to

environment and mild condition is 15 mm, example slab; humid environment with moderate exposure is 25
mm, example beam; severe environment is 50 mm, example footing.
Spacing of Reinforcements
The clear horizontal and vertical distance between bars shall be at least equal to the largest of the
following values.
(a) 20 mm

Where bars are positioned in separate horizontal layers, the bars in each layer should be located
vertically above each other and the space between the resulting columns of the bars should permit the
passage of an internal vibrator.
Effective Span Length
The effective span of a simply supported member shall be taken as the lower of the following two
values:
(a) The distance between the center lines of supports.
(b) The clear distance between the faces of supports plus the effective depth.
The effective span of a continuous element shall normally be taken as the distance between the center
lines of the supports.
For a cantilever, the effective span is taken to be its length, measured from.
(a) The face of the supports, for an isolated, fixed ended cantilever.

3.6. One-way RC Slabs
A reinforced concrete slab is a broad, flat plate, usually horizontal, with top and bottom surfaces parallel or
nearly so. It is used to provide flat surfaces mainly for roofs and floors of buildings, parking lots, air fields,
roadways etc. It may be supported by reinforced concrete beams (and is poured monolithically with such
beams), by masonry or reinforced concrete walls, by structural steel members, directly by columns, or
continuously by the ground.
Classification: - Beam supported slabs may be classified as:-
1. One-way slabs main reinforcement in each element runs in one direction only. (Ly/Lx >2). There are two
types- one way solid slabs and one way ribbed slabs.
2. Two way
slabs main
reinforcement
runs in both direction where ratio of long to short span is less than two. (Ly/Lx < 2)
Others include flat slabs, flat plates, two way ribbed or grid slabs etc.

3.6.1. Analysis of one-way solid slabs
They are considered as rectangular beams of comparatively large ratio of width to depth and ratio of longer
span to width (short span) is greater than two.
When L
l
/ L
s
> 2, about 90% or more of the total load is carried by the short span, i.e., bending takes place in
the direction of the shorter span.
The analysis is than carried out by assuming a beam of unit width with a depth equal to the thickness of the
slab and span equal to the distance between supports (in the short direction). The strip may be analyzed in the
same way as singly reinforced rectangular sections.
Load per unit area on the slab would be the load per unit length on this imaginary beam of unit width.
As the loads being transmitted to the supporting beams, all reinforcement shall be placed at right angles to
these beams. However some additional bars may be placed in the other direction to carry temperature and
shrinkage stresses.
Generally the design consists of selecting a slab thickness for deflection requirement and flexural design is
carried out by considering the slab as series of rectangular beams side by side

The ratio of steel in a slab can be determined by dividing the sectional area of one bar by the area of concrete
between two successive bars, the latter area being the product of the depth to the center of the bars and the
distance between them, center to center.
Unless condition warrant some change, cover to reinforcement is 15 mm.
The following minimum slab thicknesses shall be adopted in design:
a) 60mm for slabs not exposed to concentrated loads (eg. Inaccessible roofs).
b) 80mm for slabs exposed mainly to distributed loads.
c) 100mm for slabs exposed to light moving concentrated loads (eg. slabs accessible to light moving
vehicles).
d) 120mm for slabs exposed to heavy dynamic moving loads (eg. slabs accessible to heavy vehicles).
e) 150mm for slabs on point supports (eg. flat slabs).
Flexural reinforcements should fulfill the following minimum criteria:
a) The ratio of the secondary reinforcement to the main reinforcement shall be at least equal to 0.2.
b) The geometrical ratio of main reinforcement in a slab shall not be less than:
MPa in f where

c) The spacing between main bars for slabs shall not exceed the smaller of 2h or 350mm.
d) The spacing between secondary bars (in a direction to the main bars) shall not exceed 400mm.
3.6.2. Analysis and Design of one way Ribbed Slab
In one way ribbed slab, the supporting beams called joists or ribs are closely spaced. The ribbed floor is
formed using temporary or permanent shuttering (formwork) while the hollow block floor is generally
constructed with blocks made of clay tile or with concrete containing a light weight aggregate. This type of
floor is economical for buildings where there are long spans and light or moderate live loads such as in
hospitals and apartment buildings.
General Requirements:
Minimum slab thickness
BY: SILENAT D. 91
ARBAMINCH UNIVERSITY
CE-451
INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
RC-I
To ensure adequate stiffness against bending and torsion and to allow ribbed slabs to be treated as solid slabs
for the purpose of analysis, EBCS-2 recommends that the following restrictions on size are satisfied:
Ribs shall not be less than 70mm in width; and shall have a depth, excluding any topping of not more than 4
times the minimum width of the rib. The rib spacing shall not exceed 1.0m
Thickness of topping shall not be less than 50mm, nor less than
10 1
the clear distance between ribs. In the
case of ribbed slabs incorporating permanent blocks, the lower limit of 50mm may be reduced to 40mm.
Minimum Reinforcement
The topping shall be provided with a reinforcement mesh providing in each direction a cross-sectional area
not less than 0.001 of the section of the slab.
The breadth of ribs may be governed by shear strength requirements. The method proposed in the ISE
manual for the estimation of rib breadths limits the shear stress in the rib to 0.6 N/mm
2
for concretes with
characteristic cylinder strength of 25 N/mm
2
or more. The required breadth is given by:
b =
d
V
6 . 0

[ ] mm
Where V is the maximum shear force in Newtons on the rib considered as simply supported and d is the
effective depth in millimeters. For characteristic cylinder strengths less than 25 MPa, the breadth should be
increased in proportion.
If the rib spacing exceeds 1.0m, the topping shall be designed as a slab resting on ribs, considering load
concentrations, if any.
The function of the flanges with the web shall be checked for longitudinal shear.

Rib spacing is generally less than 1m.
In case of ribbed spacing larger than 1m, the topping (slab) need to be design as if supported on ribs. (i.e.
As one way solid slab between the ribs).
If the span of the ribs exceeds 6m, transverse ribs may be provided, as the thickness of the topping will be
larger.
The girder supporting the joist may be rectangular or T-beam with the flange thickness equal to the floor
thickness.
Procedure of Design of a floor system of ribbed Slab
1. Thickness of toppings and ribs assumed based on min requirement.
2. Loads may be computed on the basis of center line of the spacing of joists.
3. The joists are analyzed as regular continuous T-beams supported by girders.
4. Shear reinforcement shall not be provided in the narrow web of joist thus a check for the section capacity
against shear is carried out. The shear capacity may be approximated as: 1.1 V
c
of regular rectangular
sections.
5. Determine flexural reinforcement and consider min provision in the final solution.
6. Provide the topping or slab with reinforcement as per temp and shrinkage requirement.
7. Design the girder as a beam.

3.7. Serviceability limits states of deflection and crack width
It is important that member performance in normal service be satisfactory, when loads are those actually
expected to act i.e. when load factors are 1.0. This is not guaranteed simply by providing adequate strengths.
Service load deflections under full load may be excessively large or long-term deflections due to sustained
loads may cause damage .Tension cracks in beams may be wide enough to be visually disturbing or may even
permit serious corrosion of reinforcing bars. These and other questions such as vibration or fatigue, require
consideration
Serviceability studies are carried out based on elastic theory, with stresses in both concrete and steel assumed
to be proportional to strain. The concrete on the tension side of the neutral axis may be assumed uncracked,
partially cracked, or fully cracked depending on the loads and material strengths.
Reinforced concrete members carrying lateral loads respond to these loads by bending. The moment curvature
relationship for a segment of the simply supported reinforced concrete member of fig.3.7.1 (a) is illustrated in
fig.3.7.1 (c). It can be seen that the segment remains uncracked and has a large stiffness EIu, , until the moment
reaches the cracking moment, Mcr, (Point A) .When this happens, the member cracks and the stiffness at the
cracked section reduces to EIc.
As the load (and hence the moment) is increased further, more cracks occur and existing cracks increase in
size .Eventually ,the reinforcement yields at the point of maximum moment corresponding to point C on the
diagram. Above this point the member displays large increases in deflection for small increases in moment
.The service load range is between the origin and point C on the diagram and it is in this range that deflections
are checked and stresses calculated.
Consider a point B within the service load range. This curvature represents the instantaneous (short term)
curvature under an applied moment, M. If the moment is sustained, however, the curvature increases with time
to point D owing to the creep of the concrete. The curvature at this point is known as the long term or
sustained curvature. As deflection results, from curvature, there are both instantaneous and sustained
deflections which must be considered in the design of members with bending.

3.7.2. Limits on cracking
Flexural cracks are inevitably formed in reinforced concrete members. For structures in aggressive
environments, corrosion is a problem and stringent limits are imposed on the width of cracks that are allowed
to develop. Environment in the interior of the building is usually non-sever, corrosion does not generally pose
a problem and limits on crack widths will be governed by their appearance.
a) Crack Formation
The max. tensile stresses in the concrete are calculated under the action of design loads appropriate to
a serviceability limit state and on the basis of the geometrical properties of the transformed uncracked
concrete X-section.
The calculated stresses shall not exceed the following values:
a) Flexure, ( ctk ct

CHAPTER 4
THE ULS OF SHEAR AND BOND, ANCHORAGE AND DEVELOPMENT LENGTH
4.1 The ULS Design of Beams for Shear
Beams are designed for flexure and then the influences of other actions on its capacity are assumed.
The ULS of shear is characterized by either diagonal compression failure of concrete or failure of the web
reinforcement due to diagonal tension.
When a beam is subjected to flexure and shear, the shear resistance in the absence of shear reinforcement is
contributed by concrete compression zone, mechanical interlock of aggregate at the crack and dowel action
of the longitudinal reinforcement. The contributions of the later two are difficult to quantify.
Hence, the resistance to a diagonal tension is obtained as the sum of the resistance of the web reinforcement
and the concrete section.
In checking this resistance, the critical section for shear is assessed a distance d from the face of support.
4.2 Design Criteria

4.3. Bond, Anchorage and Development Length
4.3.1. Bond
In order for reinforced concrete to behave as intended, it is essential that bond forces be developed on the
interface between concrete and steel, such as to prevent significant slip from occurring at that interface. If the
bar is smooth enough to slip, the assumption that the strain in an embedded reinforcing bar is the same as that
in the surrounding concrete, would not be valid. Consequently, the beam would be very little stronger than if it
were built of plain concrete, without reinforcement.
Formerly
plain bars were used with provision of end anchorage in the form of hooks. Such beam forms a broken bond
over the entire length between anchorages and acts as a tied arch (Fig. 4.3.2).

Figure 4.3.2 Tied arch action in a beam with little or no bond
To avoid development of wide cracks and dispense with special anchorage devices, deformed bars are now
universally used. With such bars, the shoulders of the projecting ribs bear on the surrounding concrete and
result in greatly increased bond strength.
4.3.2. Bond Stress
Figure 6.2.1 shows forces in an isolated piece of a beam of length dx. The moment at one end will generally
differ from that at the other end by a small amount dM.
Assuming that concrete does not resist any tension stresses, the change in bar force becomes,

(Z Moment arm)
As shown in figure 4.3.1b, this force is resisted by the bond at the contact surface between bar and concrete.

Hence, the unit bond stress is proportional to the shear at a particular section, i.e., to the rate of change of
bending moment. The above equation applies to the tension bars in a concrete zone that is assumed to be fully
cracked. It does not apply to compression reinforcement, for which it can be shown that the flexural bond
stresses are very low.

4.3.3 Development Length
Ultimate bond failures for bars in tension are of two types: the first is direct pullout of the bar, which occurs
when ample confinement is provided by the surrounding concrete. The second type of failure is splitting of the
concrete along the bar when cover, confinement or bar spacing is insufficient to resist the lateral concrete
tension resulting from the wedging effect of the bar deformations. The latter if more common than the former
The development length is defined as that length of embedment necessary to develop the full tensile strength of
the bar, controlled by either pullout or splitting. Referring to figure 4.3.7, the moment, and hence the tensile
stress, is evidentially maximum at point a and zero at supports. The total tension force A
b
f
s
must be transferred
from the bar to the concrete in the distance l by bond stress on the surface.

The safety against bond failure is that the length of the bar, from any point of given steel stress (f
s
or at most f
y
)
to its nearby free end must be at least equal to its development length.
The basic anchorage length, l
b
, is the straight length of bar required to anchor the force A

4.3.4 Bar Cut off and Bend points
It is a common practice either to cut off bars where they are no longer required to resist stress or in case of
continuous beams, to bend up bottom steel so that it provides tensile reinforcement at the top of the beam over
the support. To determine bend points, or bar cutting points, the moment diagram resulting from loading for
maximum span moment and maximum support moment is shown below.
Recognizing the various uncertainties, for bars with no special end anchorage the full development length l
b,net
[d or 12] whichever is larger, must be provided beyond the peak stress location. The critical section may be
the point of max moment or a point where adjacent terminated reinforcement is no longer needed to resist
bending.

4.3.5 Bar splices
Reinforcing bars are as by fabrication limited in length, say 12 m. Thus it is normal to splice bars in the field.
To do this, one has to notice the following regarding splicing.
Splicing of bars must be avoided at points of max-moment.
Bars which are spliced should be staggered.
Splices are made simply by lapping the bars a sufficient distance to transfer stress
by bond from one bar to the other.
The required length of lap for tension is approximately 1.3l

and that for compression is l
