Member Depth
ACI provides minimum member depth and slab
thickness requirements that can be used without a
deflection calculation (Sec. 9.5)
Useful for selecting preliminary member sizes
ACI 318 - Table 9.5a:
Min. thickness, h
For beams with one end continuous: L/18.5
For beams with both ends continuous: L/21
L is span length in inches
Table 9.5a usually gives a depth too shallow for design,
but should be checked as a minimum.

Using influence lines to determine pattern loads
Largest moments in a continuous beam or frame occur
when some spans are loaded and others are not.
Influence lines are used to determine which spans to
Influence Line: graph of variation of shear,
moment, or other effect at one particular point in
a structure due to a unit load moving across the
structure.

calculated

Qualitative Influence Lines
Mueller-Breslau Principle
Figs. 10-7(f), 10-8, 10-9
Used to provide a qualitative guide to the shape of the
influence line
For moments
Insert pin at location of interest
Twist beam on either side of pin
Other supports are unyielding, so distorted shape may be easily
drawn.
For frames, joints are assumed free to rotate, assume members
are rigidly connected (angle between members does not
change)

Qualitative Influence Lines
The Mueller-Breslau
principle can be stated as
follows:
If a function at a point on
a structure, such as
reaction, or shear, or
moment is allowed to act
without restraint, the
deflected shape of the
structure, to some scale,
represents the influence
line of the function.

ACI 318-99, Sec. 8.9.1:
It shall be permitted to assume that:
The live load is applied only to the floor or roof
under consideration, and
The far ends of columns built integrally with the
structure are considered to be fixed.

** For the project, we will model the entire frame. **

It shall be permitted to assume that the

Required Strength (ACI 318, sec 9.2)

F = Pressure or weight Loads due to fluids with well defined
densities and controllable maximum heights.
T = Effect of temperature, creep, shrinkage, differential
settlement, shrinkage compensating.
U = 1.4 D +1.7 L Always check even if other load
types are present.

U = 0.75( 1.4 D + 1.7 L + 1.7 W)
U = 0.75( 1.4 D + 1.7 L)
U = 0.9 D + 1.3 W

Similar combination for earthquake, lateral pressure,
fluid pressure, settlement, etc.

U = 1.05 D + 1.28 L + 1.4 E
U = 0.9 D + 1.43 E
U = 1.4 D + 1.7 L + 1.7 H
U = 0.9 D + 1.7 H
U = 1.4 D + 1.7 L + 1.4 F
U = 0.9 D + 1.4 F
U = 0.75(1.4 D + 1.4 T +1.7 L)
U = 1.4 (D + L)

Design Procedure for section dimensions
are unknown (singly Reinforced Beams)
Assume that the material properties, loads, and span length are all known.
Estimate the dimensions of self-weight using the following rules of
thumb:
a. The depth, h, may be taken as approximate 8 to 10 % of the
span (1in deep per foot of span) and estimate the width, b,
b. The weight of a rectangular beam will be about 15 % of the
one-half of h.
Immediate values of h and b from these two procedures should be selected.
