CIVL 232 Design of Structural Concrete

Solution to Assignment 1
1. Solution (a) Two principal types of limited state: Ultimate limit state: The whole structure or its components should not collapse, overturn or buckle when subjected to design loads. Serviceability limit state: The structure should not become unfit for use due to excessive deflection, cracking, vibration and so on. (b) γm takes the account of: i. Uncertainties in strength ii. Uncertainties in the accuracy of the methods of analysis γf takes the account of: i. ii. iii. iv. Possible increase in loads Inaccurate assessment of the effects of loads Unforeseen stress redistribution Constructional inaccuracies

2. Solution (a) The weight of foundation at A can be determined by considering the following load arrangement:
