DESIGN EXAMPLE 1

This example is to illustrate the design of one way and two way
spanning walls in a rectangular water tank.

Design an open overhead tank (internal dimensions 3.5 m x 6 m x 2.5

m) supported on a reinforced concrete frame structure as shown below.
Use a minimum thickness of 200 mm for walls and floor slab.

Note:

Method 1 By elastic analysis with ULS loads (approximate method)

Method 2 - Plastic analysis using yield line theory ( exact method)

Method 1

To carry out elastic analysis of thin walls any available method can
be used. There are design charts (T 53) are available in the
Reynoldss Hand book for different boundary conditions of the wall.
The curves given in Table 53 (RHB) can be used to calculate critical
service bending moments on vertical and horizontal strips of unit
width when the slab is fully fixed or freely supported or unsupported
along the top edge. The curves are based on elastic analyses and for a
value of Poissons ratio of 0.2.

4 Design of water-retaining structures

The ultimate moments in a wall panel subjected to triangular loading

can be determined by Yield-line method. A feature of yield line
method of designing two-way slabs is that the designer is free to
choose the ratio between the moments in each direction and between the
positive and negative units in each direction. However, in case of wall
panel subjected to triangular load distribution results from the storage
of liquid, it is more important to ensure that the choice of these ratios
in such that the formation of cracks under service loading is
minimized. This is achieved if the ratios selected correspond
approximately to those given by elastic analysis.

1. Determine the proportion of the horizontal moments at mid span

Mhm and at the supports Mhs, and the vertical moment at the base
Ms to the vertical moment at mid span Mm from the appropriate
chart on T53/RHB.
2. Then if i4 = Ms / Mm , = Mhm / Mm and i1 = i3 = Mhs /
Mm , determine , i1, i3 and i4
3. Calculate lyr from
2l y
l yr
(1 i1 ) 1 i3
and if the slab is supported at top edge, calculate lxr from
2lx
lxr
(1 i2 ) 1 i4
4. Finally, with f, lx (or lxr), lyr and i, determine M from the scale on
Table 58 (RHB) if the slab is supported at top edge and from the
chart T 61 otherwise.

In the given example. From T 53 top edge unsupported

Ms = 0.055 x 24.5 x 2.62 = 9.12 kNm/m
Mhm = 0.008 x 24.5 x 3.72 = 2.68 kNm/m

(c) Curtailment of r/f

Simplified rules for curtailment given in Cl. 3.12.10.3 of BS 8110 do
not apply as the wall is not subjected to a UDL.

Bars should extend beyond the point at which it is no longer required for
a distance equal to an anchorage length.

In this particular example it is not possible to curtail the bars as it

violates the maximum bar spacing requirement.

(d) SLS of deflection

The hand book for the previous code of practical (BS 5337) states that
deflection at the top of wall need not be checked for open structures.. But
when the reservoir is roofed, or supported at top, the criteria has to be
checked.

Cl. 3.5.7 / BS 8110 , Cl 2.1/ BS 8007 give the procedure to check

deflection. Example 2 explains the applications of these clauses.

by calculation of crack width
This is repetition of step a.1.3 (done by limiting steel stress method)
To calculate crack width following procedure is necessary.

(a) Calculate serviceability BM

(b) Calculate depth of N.A, lever arm and steel stress by elastic theory.
(c) Calculate surface strain allowing for stiffening effect of concrete.
(d) Calculate the crack width.

Design options for control of early thermal contraction and

restrained shrinkage

to control cracking in immature concrete, as well as to obtain a

Note:

Control of early thermal contraction and restrained shrinkage in

walls and slabs can be effected by a suitable arrangement of r/f with
or without joints. At one extreme control can be obtained by
providing substantial amount of r/f in form of small bars
preferably of high bond type at close spacing and without joints in
conc. At the other extreme control can be effected by presence of
minimum r/f in form of large bars together with movement joints
at close spacing.
