Types of Concrete
Plain Cement Concrete (PCC)
 Solid mass made of cement, sand, gravel, cement and water
 Durability, ease in casting, easy availability and economical
 Good in compression over brick and stone masonry
 Density ranges from 1200 to 2500 kg/m3
 Compressive strength: 10 to 100 N/mm2
 Very weak in tension, so limited use as structural material
 Used in hollow/solid blocks, small pedestals, mass concrete
applications like dams, etc.
Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC)
 Concrete with steel bars embedded in it
 Composite material with resistance to tensile stresses
 Steel bars provided are in tension zone of flexural members
 Bond b/t steel & concrete ensures strain compatibility
 Steel imparts ductility to the brittle concrete
 Tensile stresses arise as direct tension, flexural tension, shear
force, temperature and shrinkage effects
 Steel will also resist compressive stresses along with
Pre-stressed Concrete
 High-strength concrete with high tensile steel wires
embedded and tensioned, prior to loading
 Concrete pre-compressed to a degree that, after loading
there is no resultant tension developed in the beam
 Used in bridges, tanks, railway sleepers, etc.

Fibre-Reinforced Concrete: Steel/glass fibres are

incorporated in concrete at the time of mixing

Ferrocement: Thin sections are formed by embedding

multiple layers of steel wire mesh in cement mortar
Objectives Of Structural Design
 Stability to prevent overturning, sliding or buckling under
 Strength to resist safely the stresses induced by the loads
 Serviceability to ensure satisfactory performance under
service load conditions —providing adequate stiffness and
reinforcements to contain deflections, crack-widths and
vibrations within acceptable limits, and also providing
impermeability and durability (including corrosion-
resistance), etc.

Structural Analysis And Design
 Analysis: to determine the stress resultants and
displacements in the various members of a structure under
any loading
 Design: to provide adequate member sizes, reinforcement
and connection details, to withstand safely the load
 To perform analysis, the proportions of various structural
elements should be known in advance; for this, a preliminary
design is generally required
 In practice, analysis and design are interactive processes

Grade of Concrete
 Compressive Strength can be easily obtained and correlated
with other properties of concrete
 The quality or grade of concrete is designated in terms of its
characteristic compressive strength (of 150 mm cubes at 28-
days), expressed in MPa
 The number is usually preceded by the letter ‘M’, which
refers to ‘mix’.
 Ex. M25 - characteristic strength of 25 Mpa
 Characteristic strength: strength of material below which
not more than 5% of test results are expected to fall
 Table 2, IS 456: 2000 gives standard grades used

 Temperature Load
 Settlement of Supports
 Shrinkage effects
Types of Loads
Dead Loads
 Fixed in magnitude and position
 Dead load of a structure: weight of structure together with
its associated ‘non-structural’ components
 After the design process, the initially assumed dead load of
the structure has to be compared with the actual dead load
 If difference is significant, revise the assumed dead load
Imposed Loads
Imposed loads (also referred to as live loads) are gravity loads
other than dead loads and include items such as occupancy by
people, movable equipment and furniture within the buildings,
stored materials such as books or machinery

Wind Loads
 Code IS 875:1987 (Part 3) provides the basic wind speeds,
averaged over a short interval of 3 seconds and having a 50-
year return period at 10 m height above ground level in
different parts of the country
 Wind Load Depends on: Velocity and density of air, Height
above ground level, Shape and aspect ratio of the building,
Topography of the surrounding ground surface, Angle of
wind attack, Solidity ratio or openings in the structure,
Susceptibility of the structural system under consideration
to steady and time-dependent (dynamic) effects induced by
the wind load
Wind Zones
Earthquake Loads
 Calculated using IS 1893 (Part 1): 2002
 Depends on seismic weight of the building and seismic
parameters like zone factor, importance factor, response
reduction factor, soil properties
 Dynamic analysis has to adopted as per code

Design Concepts
Design Considerations
 Partial or total collapse is acceptably low under normal
service loads and abnormal but probable overloads
(earthquake or wind)
 Collapse occurs due to exceeding the load−bearing capacity,
overturning, sliding, buckling, fatigue fracture, etc.
 Structural integrity should maintained
 Minimise the likelihood of progressive collapse
 Satisfactory performance under service loads, without
discomfort to the user due to excessive deflection, cracking,
vibration, etc.
 Other considerations are durability, impermeability, acoustic
and thermal insulation, etc.
 A design that satisfies safety requirement need not
necessarily satisfy serviceability requirement
 Example: a thin reinforced concrete slab can be safe against
collapse but it is likely to result in excessive deflections,
crack-widths and permeability and the exposed steel
becomes vulnerable to corrosion
Design Philosophies
Working Stress Method (WSM)
 Traditional method used in RCC, steel & timber structures
 Structural material behaves in a linear elastic manner
 Adequate safety is ensured by suitably restricting stresses in
the material induced by working loads
 As permissible stresses are kept well below the material
strength, assumption of linear elastic behaviour is justified
 Factor of Safety: ratio of material strength to permissible
 Strain Compatibility due to bond is assumed
 Stresses in concrete and steel are assumed to be linearly
related to their respective strains
 stress in steel is linearly related to that in the adjoining
concrete by modular ratio (Es/Ec)
 Stresses under working loads kept within permissible
stresses are not realistic due to long-term effects of creep
and shrinkage, effects of stress concentrations, and other
secondary effects, resulting redistribution
 WSM fails to discriminate between different types of loads
that act simultaneously, but have different degrees of
uncertainty leading to un-conservative designs
 Structures designed using WSM are performing satisfactorily
Limit State Method
 Comprehensive and rational solution to the design problem,
by considering safety at ultimate loads and serviceability at
working loads
 Uses a multiple safety factor format which attempts to
provide adequate safety at ultimate loads as well as adequate
serviceability at service loads, by considering all possible
‘limit states’
Limit states
 State of impending failure, beyond which a structure ceases
to perform its intended function satisfactorily, in terms of
either safety or serviceability; i.e., it either collapses or
becomes unserviceable
 Ultimate limit states (or ‘limit states of collapse’), which
deal with strength, overturning, sliding, buckling, fatigue
fracture, etc.
 Serviceability limit states, which deal with discomfort
to occupancy and/or malfunction, caused by excessive
deflection, crack-width, vibration, leakage, etc., and also
loss of durability, etc.
