WHO IS AN ENGINEER?

According to USA President Herbert Hoover, who was an engineer before he became a politician, said: The great liability of the engineer …compared to men of other professions……is that his works are out in the open where all can see them. His acts …..step by step …are in hard substances. He cannot bury his mistakes in the grave like the DOCTORS. He cannot argue them into thin air…..or blame the judge…..like the LAWYERS. He cannot, like the ARCHITECT, cover his figures with trees and vines. He cannot, like the politicians, screen his shortcomings by blaming his opponents….and hope the people will forget. The ENGINEER simply cannot deny he did it. If his works do not work……he is damned.

A design engineer’s responsibility should include assuring the structural safety of the design, details, checking shop drawing. Detailing is as important as design since proper detailing of engineering designs is an essential link in the planning and engineering process as some of the most devasting collapses in history have been caused by defective connections or DETAILING. There are many examples explained in the book" DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION FAILURES by Dov Kaminetzky. Detailing is very important not only for the proper execution of the structures but for the safety of the structures. Detailing is necessary not only for the steel structures but also for the RCC members as it is the translation of all the mathematical expression’s and equation’s results.

For the RCC members for most commonly used for buildings we can divide the detailing for 1. SLABS-WITH OR WITHOUT OPENINGS.(RECTANGULAR,CIRCULAR,NONRECTANGULAR-PYRAMID SLAB,TRIANGULAR ETC) -BALCONY SLAB,LOFT SLAB,CORNER SLAB etc BEAMS- WITH OR WITHOUT OPENIGS.(SHALLOW & DEEP BEAMS) COLUMNS.(RECTANGULAR,L-SHAPE,T-SHAPE, CIRCULAR,OCTAGONAL,CROSS SHAPE etc)

4. FOUNDATIONS.

Detailing for gravity loads is different from the lateral loads specially for the SEISMIC FORCES.
Apart from the detailing for the above there is a different detailing required for the Rehabilitation and strengthening of damaged structures. We will now dwell on the DETAILING OF MEMBERS FOR THE GRAVITY AND SOME CODAL DETAILINGS AS PER IS CODE IS 13920 AND IS 4326 AS REQUIRED FOR SEISMIC FORCES.

beams and column joint and at similar situations. 5. For a single structural member the number of different sizes of bars shall be kept minimum. 4. nominal cover or effective cover to reinforcement. The grade of the steel shall be clearly stated in the drawing. Deformed bars need not have hooks at their ends. Decide detailed location of opening/hole and supply adequate details for reinforcements around the openings. Prepare bar-bending schedule . Indicate proper cover-clear cover. . 8. 6. 7. 3.2. if necessary. intersections of walls. Use commonly available size of bars and spirals. Show enlarged details at corners.

11. lapped splice of bundled bars shall be made by splicing one bar at a time. 10. In the case of bundled bars. Congestion of bars should be avoided at points where members intersect and make certain that all rein.9. . Make sure that hooked and bent up bars can be placed and have adequate concrete protection. Can be properly placed. such individual splices within the bundle shall be staggered.

The location of construction joints shall be at the point of minimum shear approximately at mid or near the mid points. Were the depth of beams exceeds 750mm in case of beams without torsion and 450mm with torsion provide face rein. away from the sections of maximum stresses and shall be staggered. 2. DO’S – BEAMS & SLABS: 1. as far as possible. Only closed stirrups shall be used for transverse rein. they shall be . For members subjected to torsion and for members likely to be subjected to reversal of stresses as in Seismic forces. Where splices are provided in bars. Indicate all expansion. 4. as per IS456-2000.12. It shall be formed vertically and not in a sloped manner. . 3. 13.

-for CIRCULAR sections. DONOT’S-GENERAL: 1. To accommodate bottom bars. Preferably avoid use of 2 grades of vertical bars in the same element. Reinforcement shall not extend across an expansion joint and the break between the sections shall be complete. 2. it is good practice to make secondary beams shallower than main beams. .5. 4. A min four bars one at each corner of the column in the case of rectangular sections. 2. 1. 3. Keep outer dimensions of column constant. Do’s –COLUMNS. Flexural reinforcement preferably shall not be terminated in a tension zone. A reinforced column shall have at least six bars of longitudinal reinforcement for using in transverse helical reinforcement. for reuse of forms. at least by 50mm. as far as possible .

their contribution towards shear resistance shall not be more than 50% of the total shear to be resisted. their diameter shall not exceed the diameter of the column bars by more than 3mm. . Shall not be bundled. Where dowels are provided. 5. USE OF SINGEL BENT UP BARS(CRANKED) ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE CASE OF EARTHQUAKE RESISTANCE STRUCTURES. 6.3. 4. Bars larger than 36mm dia. Lap splices shall be not be used for bars larger than 36mm dia. Except where welded. Where bent up bars are provided.

The building plan DX-A3 is one in which the client asked the architect to provide opening all round. Refer the 3d elevation .DETAILING OF SLABS WITHOUT ANY CUT OR OPENINGS. The building plan DX-3 shows the slabs in different levels for the purpose of eliminating the inflow of rainwater into the room from the open terrace and also the sunken slab for toilet in first floor.

CONCLUSION: Before concluding I will show some more details drawn in autocad exported in wwf format As there is no time to elaborately explaining . Deep beams. 4.the following topics are not covered : Flat slabs. 3.helical staircase. In the above statements if my senior colleagues and ACCE members can find different method or any new detailing system it will be of immense help not only for me but to other young engineers who should learn in wright ways and not wrong lessons. Shear wall. Hope that I have enlighten some of the detailing technique for the most commonly encountered RCC members in buildings. walls. 1. Retaining wall structures. pile foundation. 7. Folded plates. shell structures-cylindrical shells. Liquid retaining structures. 6. cantilever type etc. 5. Staircases. 2. . silos. central beam type. Different types of foundations-raft. strap foundation etc.
