Assignment No. 3
INTERNAL REINFORCEMENT
Personal Number: No.S=17

Calculate the resisting moment of a concrete beam section with the dimensions
b=250mm+5N and h=500mm reinforced with 3* 16mm glass fibre bars placed at the
bottom side. The concrete class is C25/30 and the concrete cover cnom=20mm.
SOLUTION
Beam cross section : bw = 335 mm, h=500 mm
2
Bottom reinforcement: 316As1=6.16 cm
cnom=20mm
Strength characteristics of the glass fibres:
FFRPU=1350 N/mm2 -the tensile strength
EFRP=60000 N/mm 2- the elasticity modulus of the fibres
Afrp=602.88 mm 2- the area of the glass bars
FRPu= FFRPU/ EFRP=0.0225-the ultimate strain of the glass fibres
fcd=16.67 N/mm2- the design strength of the concrete

## Effective depth of the cross-section:

d=h- cnom-0.5*==500-20-0.5*16=479.2mm

cb=231,86 mm
cu=0.0211
