Design of Concrete Structures

23

A concrete structure is not in an elastic state at failure At failure, failure the cross section is cracked and only a part of the section contributes to the load-carrying capacity i.e. the part in compression The elastic section section-force force distribution gives large values over supports Too expensive to design according to the elastic section forces, because the pressure zone of the cross section becomes very p y small, hence, large g amount of reinforcement would be needed Instead a plastic section-force distribution is chosen according to the lowerbound theory Find a statically acceptable and safe section force distribution, then the section design is on the safe side

Charniers are added left and right of the middle supports making the system statically determinate (fulfilling first part of the lower-bound theory)

In Staad.Pro, use the general/spec fan, choose beam then release and release Mz, both at the start and end location of the beam (two steps!)

The chaniers model a failure point. Hence, the moment is known at this point. Over the supports the moment is negative (tension at the top of the beam. Be aware that Staad.Pro Staad Pro uses a different sign convention) convention). Hence Hence, the maximum negative failure moment in this example is +264.5 kNm (not -264.5 kNm). At the failure points the known moment (failure moment) is added as an external moment. In Staad.Pro this is done by choosing Member Load, Concentrated Moment GZ and applying a negative moment at right end of the e bea beam (d (d1 = L, ,d d2 = 0) a and d a pos positive e moment o e a at left e e end do of the e bea beam, , i.e. e (d1=0, d2 =0). The moment distribution from this load case should give the same sign of the moment at the failure points as the elastic analysis. Then the total moment distribution is found as a sum of the moment distribution from the external load applied to the statically determinate system and the moment distribution from the applied external moments at the failure points.
