FOREWORD
Eurocode 2: Design of concrete structures, Part 1: General rules and rules for buildings (EC2)(1) sets out both the principles for the design of all types of concrete structure, and design rules for buildings. Rules for other types of structure and particular areas of technology, including precast concrete elements and structures, will be covered in other parts of EC2.
EC2 contains a considerable number of parameters for which only indicative values are given. The appropriate values for use in the UK are set out in the National Application Document (NAD)(l) which has been drafted by BSI. The NAD also includes a number of amendments to the rules in EC2 where, in the draft for development stage of EC2, it was decided that the EC2 rules either did not apply, or were incomplete. Two such areas are the design for fire resistance and the provision of ties, where the NAD states that the rules in BS 8110(2) should be applied.
Attention is drawn to Approved Document A (Structure) related to the Building Regulations 1991(3), which states that Eurocode 2, including the National Application Document, is considered to provide appropriate guidance for the design of concrete buildings in the United Kingdom.
Enquiries of a technical nature concerning these worked examples may be addressed to the authors directly, or through the BCA, or to the Building Research Establishment.

1 INTRODUCTION AND SYMBOLS II
1.1 Introduction and symbols
The main objective of this publication is to illustrate through worked examples how EC2(1) may be used in practice. It has been prepared for engineers who are generally familiar with design practice in the UK, particularly to BS 8110(2).
The worked examples relate primarily to insitu concrete building structures. The designs are in accordance with EC2: Part 1 as modified by the UK National Application Docurnent'", Where necessary, the information given in EC2 has been supplemented by guidance taken from other documents.
The core example, in Section 2, is a redesign of the insitu concrete office block used in the BCA publication Designed and detailed (BS 8110: 1985), by Higgins & Rogers(4). Other design aspects and forms of construction are fully explored by means of further examples in Sections 3 to 12.
Equations and charts for the design of beam and column sections, taken from the Concise Eurocode for the design of concrete buildings (5) , are given in Section 13. Publications used in the preparation of this book, and from which further information may be obtained, are listed in the References. Unless otherwise stated, all references to BS 8110 refer to Part 1.
Two conventions have been adopted in the preparation of this book. Statements
followed by' OK' mark places where the calculated vaiue is shown
to be satisfactory. Green type is used to draw attention to key information such as the reinforcement to be provided.
The calculations are crossreferenced to the relevant clauses in EC2 and, where appropriate, to other documents: all references in the righthand margins are to EC2 unless indicated otherwise.
The symbols used throughout the publication are listed and defined below, and are generally those used in EC2 itself.

2 COMPLETE DESIGN EXAMPLE II
2.1 Introduction
Design calculations for the main elements of a simple insitu concrete office block are set out. The structure chosen is the same as that used in Higgins and Rogers' Designed and detailed (BS 8110: 1985Y4). Calculations are, wherever possible, given in the same order as those in Higgins and Rogers enabling a direct comparison to be made between BS 8110(2) and EC2(1) designs. For the same reason, a concrete grade C32/40 is used. This is not a standard grade recognized by EC2 or ENV 206(6), which gives grade C35/45 in Table NA.1. Some interpolation of the tables in EC2 has, therefore, been necessary.
The example was deliberately chosen to be simple and to cover a considerable range of member types. Comparison shows that, for this type of simple structure, there is very little difference between BS 8110 and EC2 in the complexity of calculation necessary or the results obtained.

Note:
Reinforcement areas differ somewhat from those given by BS 8110 which permits design for the single load case of maximum load on all spans combined with 20% redistribution. EC2 requires alternate and adjacent spans to be considered. In this instance, no redistribution has been carried out but it would have been permissible to carry out 30% redistribution in the EC2 design. This would have resulted in an identical answer to that given by BS 8110 but ductility class H (as defined in prEN 10080(8» reinforcement would need to be specified.
2.3.6 Shear
Shear resistance of the slab without shear reinforcement is given by VRd1 = 'Rl(1.2 + 40PI)bwd

k 1.6  d = 1.6  0.149 = 1.451

1000 x 149
Hence
VRd1 = 102.3 kN/m > VSd
33.9 kN/m . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. OK
No shear reinforcement required
Note:
Since shear is rarely a problem for normally loaded solid slabs supported on beams, as the calculation has shown, it is not usually necessary to check in these instances.

Using NAD Table 7(1) and interpolating between 48 for 0.15% and 35 for 0.5%, a basic span/effective depth ratio of 44 is given. By modifying according to the steel stress, the ratio becomes
44 (400 x 377) = 42.2 460 x 342

No further check is necessary as h = 175:5 200 mm
Maximum bar spacing = 3h:5 500 mm OK

2.5.7 Curtailment of reinforcement
Since the bending moment diagram has not been drawn, simplified curtailment rules are needed. These are given in Section 8 of the Appendix to the Concise Eurocode.
Using the rules, the 20 mm bars in the top may be reduced to 12 mm bars at a distance from the face of support
0.11 + 32cp + 0.45d = 500 + 32 x 20 + 0.45 x 280

\r~ = 25(2  eO/e02) = 50 in both EW and NS directions
Slenderness ratios in both directions are less than \r~' hence it is only necessary to ensure that the column can withstand an end moment of at least

Design typical pad footing for internal column. 2.7.1 Cover
Use 50 mm nominal cover against blinding
BS 8110 specifies a nominal cover of not less than 40 mm against blinding. EC2 specifies a minimum cover greater than 40 mm. This implies a nominal cover greater than 45 mm, hence the choice of 50 mm.

The assumption is made that the base takes no moment. Also it is assumed that the dead weight of the base less the weight of soil displaced is 10 kN/m2 over the area of the base.
2.7.3 Size of base
Since, at the time of publication, EC7: Geotechnical design(9) and EC2, Part 3:
Concrete foundations(10) have not been finalized, the approach used here is based on current UK practice.
Use 2.75 m x 2.75 m x 0.6 m deep pad

Shear force may be calculated at a critical section distance d from the face of the column.

In calculating VRd1, the influence of the reinforcement will be ignored since, if straight bars are used, they will not extend d + [b,net beyond the critical section.
VRd1 0.35 x 1.075 x 1.2 x 2750 x 525/1000 = 652 kN
VRd1 > VSd' hence no requirement for shear reinforcement

6.15 m
Figure 2.12 Critical perimeter for punching
VRd1 = 0.35 x 1.075 x 1.2 x 525 x 6.15 = 1458 kN
Area within perimeter = 2.98 m2
Area of base = 7.56 m2
Design shear (VSd) = (7.56  2.98) x 238 = 1090 kN
VSd < VRd1, hence no requirement for shear reinforcement

3.1 Introduction
This Section covers the design of beams for shear and torsion, and supplements the examples given in Section 2. The requirements for adequate safety against lateral buckling are also examined.
3.2 Design methods for shear 3.2.1 Introduction
EC2(1) differs from BS 8110(2) because the truss assumption used in shear design is explicit. Leading on from this, two alternative methods are given in the Code.
(1) Standard
(2) Variable Strut Inclination (VSI).
The standard method assumes a concrete strut angle of 45° (cote = 1) and that the direct shear in the concrete, VCd' is to be taken into account. This contrasts with the VSI method which permits the designer to choose strut angles between the limits set in the NAD(1), as shown in Figure 3.1, but ignores the direct shear in the concrete.

EC2 limits
Figure 3.1 Limits of cote (VSI method)
Because the direct shear in the concrete is not taken into account in the VSI method, no savings in shear reinforcement can be achieved until the applied shear exceeds three times the concrete shear (VSd > 3Vcd)·
A further disadvantage of this method is that with increasing values of cote, i.e., reductions in the concrete strut angle, the forces in the tension reinforcement
.. I

BEAMS
increase significantly and may well outweigh any notional savings in shear reinforcement. These forces are, it should be noted, explicitly checked in EC2 but not in BS 8110. Given special circumstances the VSI method may be required but for most practical situations, the standard method will provide the most economic design.

3.2.2.2 Variable strut inclination method
This method allows the angle of the concrete compression strut to be varied at the designer's discretion within limits stated in the Code.
It can give some economy in shear reinforcement but will require the provision of additional tension reinforcement. In most cases the standard method will suffice.
This reduced shear reinforcement will only be obtained at high levels of design shear and is counterbalanced by increased tension reinforcement. This can be seen by a comparison of EC2 Eqns 4.22 and 4.23 in the standard method and EC2 Eqn 4.27 in the variable strut inclination method.

Note:
In the above equation the contribution of the concrete, VCd' to the shear resistance of the section is not taken into account.
With cote = 1.5 which is the maximum value permitted in the NAD, reductions in shear reinforcement will only occur when
<
VRd3  VCd (0.9d)fYWd
; or
(0.9d) fYWd x 1.5
Putting VSd = VRd3 gives VSd > 3VCd
If VSd > 3VCd' then the VSI method will allow a reduction in shear rei nforcement.
If this inequality is not satisfied, use of the variable strut inclination method will produce an uneconomic amount of shear reinforcement. In this case the standard method should be used.
For elements with vertical shear reinforcement, VRd2 is given by
Eqn 4.26
cote + tane
Putting VSd
VRd2 and rearranging gives
cote + tano
Figure 3.1 shows cote plotted against 1/(cote + tane) together with the EC2 and NAD limits for cote. Hence for a given VSd' the limits for cote can be found.
Increasing the value of cote will reduce the shear reinforcement required but increase the force in the tension reinforcement.
In this example, cote will be chosen to minimize the shear reinforcement.

Comparing this with the arrangement in Figure 3.5 obtained using the standard method, it can be seen that less reinforcement is required near the support but this needs to be carried further along the beam. There is little overall saving in this case.
3.3 Shear resistance with concentrated loads close to support
3.3.1 Introduction
Where concentrated loads are located within 2.5d of a support, the value TRd may be modified by a factor (3 when calculating VRd1. This enhancement only applies when the section is resisting concentrated loads and the standard method is used. For a uniformly distributed load, an unmodified value of VRd1 should be used.

In the example. VRd1 will be calculated at positions between the support and 2.5d away at intervals of o.5d. This is done to illustrate the effect even though the critical section will normally be at the position of the concentrated load.

The basic design shear resistance of the section, VAd1, is given by
TAd = 0.34 N/mm2 for fCk = 30 N/mm2
For concentrated loads within 2.5d of the face of the support, an enhancement of shear resistance is permitted. TAd may be multiplied by a factor {3 when determining VAd1.

If a concentrated load is positioned close to a support, it is possible that using (3 to modify VRd1 may lead to only minimum shear reinforcement being provided throughout the beam. In this case, the designer may wish to base the shear resistance on the unmodified VRd1.
This can be illustrated by taking the example above but placing the point load at 0.5d from the support.
The modified shear force diagram is shown in Figure 3.10.

3.4 Design method for torsion
3.4.1 Introduction
The edge beam shown in Figure 3.13 carries the ends of simply supported floor slabs seated on the lower flange. The beam is fully restrained at its ends.
The example chosen is the same as that used in Allen's Reinforced concrete design to as 8110: Simply explained(12).
Analysis of the structure and the design of the section for flexure is not included. The section will be checked for shear, torsion and the combination of both.

3.4.4 Torsional resistance
Torsional resistance is calculated on the basis of a thinwalled closed section. Solid sections are replaced by an idealized equivalent thinwalled section. Sections of complex shape are divided into subsections with each subsection treated as an equivalent thinwalled section. The torsional resistance is taken as the sum of the torsional resistances of the subsections.
The torsional moment, carried by each subsection according to elastic theory, may be found on the basis of the St Venant torsional stiffness. Division of the section into subsections should be so arranged as to maximize the calculated stiffness.

Example of a oneway spanning slab is given in Section 2.
4.1.2 Twoway spanning solid slabs
EC2(1) permits the use of elastic analysis, with or without redistribution, or plastic analysis for ultimate limit state design.
Elastic analyses are commonly employed for oneway spanning slabs and for twoway spanning slabs without adequate provision to resist torsion at the corners of the slab and prevent the corners from lifting. Plastic analyses are commonly used in other situations.
Tabulated results for moments and shears from both types of analysis are widely available.
Care is necessary in subsequent design to ensure that adequate ductility is present. Where redistribution has been performed, the necessary checks should be carried out.
4.1.2.1 DeSign example of a simplysupported twoway spanning solid slab Design a solid slab, spanning in two directions and simplysupported along each edge on brickwork walls as shown in Figure 4.1. The slab is rectangular on plan and measures 5 m by 6 m between the centre of the supports.
In addition to selfweight, the slab carries a characteristic dead load of 0.5 kN/m2 and an imposed load of 5.0 kN/m2.
The slab is in an internal environment with no exposure to the weather or aggressive conditions.

NAD Table 7 gives basic span/effective depth ratios which are assumed to be based on fYk = 400 N/mm2.
Note 2 to NAD Table 7 states that modification to the tabulated values for nominal reinforced concrete should not be carried out to take into account service stresses in the steel (refer to EC2 Clause 4.4.3.2(4». However, it is assumed that the correction ought to be made for concrete with 0,15% ::;;; p«; 0.5% but that the resulting values should not exceed those tabulated in the NAD for nominally reinforced concrete.
Basic limiting span/effective depth ratios are:
Concrete lightly stressed (p = 0.5%): 25 Concrete nominally reinforced (p = 0.15%): 34
By interpolation at p = 0.33%: 29.4
The actual service steel stress modification factor is

4.1.2.2.5 Flexural design
Bending moment coefficients for twoway spanning slabs supported on four edges, with provision for torsion at the corners, have been calculated based on both elastic and yield line theory. The coefficients published in BS 8110:
Part 1, Table 3.15, are based on yield line analysis and are used in this example.
For continuous slabs the effects of rotational restraint from the supports can be ignored.
Yield line methods can only be used for very ductile structural elements. Use high ductility steel Class H to prEN 10080(8).
No direct check on rotational capacity is required if high ductility steel is used.
The area of steel should not exceed a value corresponding to

M 0.25 which is equivalent to bd2f

For the yield line (kinematic) method, a variety of possible mechanisms should be considered. This is assumed in the use of the published bending moment coefficients.
