If anchor ends are located close to the concrete surface opposite to the embedded

CALCULATION EXAMPLES

Example 50. Given: embedded element of the column with the welded table for support of
the framing beam as well as location and values of loads and framing beams due to Draft
77; anchors of reinforcement -III (Rs = 365 MPa); heavy-weight concrete of the column
20; plate of steel grade 32 (Ry = 215 MPa).
It is required to design normal anchors of the embedded element and to determine the plate
thickness.
Draft 77. For the calculation example 50

C a l c u l a t i o n . Lets take location of anchors as its shown on Draft 77. As all loads act
in one direction and dont cause the torsion, so lets determine total area of the anchors
cross section of the most compressed upper row by formula (211).
For that we determine external forces moment:
= Ql = 150 0,15 = 22,5 kNm
Taking z = 0,3 and N = 0, lets determine maximum tension force in one anchor row by
formula (212):

On Draft 77 shearing force is Q = 150 kN, anchor rows number is nan = 3.

## As location of anchors in the column by such length is impossible so it is necessary to

decrease the length of anchors and reinforce their ends. Due to Item 5.113 anchor ends are
to be reinforced by button-heads with diameter dh = 54 m 3d and concrete is to be
checked as regards compression and chipping taking anchors length la = 250 mm > 10d =
10 18 = 180 mm.
Compression calculation is to be made due to Item 3.109.
Compression area loc1 under a button-head of one anchor is:
3,14 54 2
Aloc1 = Ah1 Aan1 =
254 = 2036 mm 2 .

Lets suppose that crack formation in the column on the side of the embedded element is
possible. So in compliance with Item 3.109 by la = 250 mm < 15 d = 15 18 = 270 mm
compression force will be:

75 270 250 42,5

Lets take maximum value b = 2.5 as design area of concrete loc2 here is large; = 1.0.
Lets check condition (225):
b Rb Aloc1 = 1 2,5 10,5 2036 = 53450 H > N loc = 45000 N,
That means the strength as regards compression is provided.
As Nan > 0 so chipping calculation is made according to Item 3.107. Anchor ends with
reinforcement are not fixed to the longitudinal reinforcement of the column located at the

surface opposite to the embedded element of the column thats why calculation is made due
to the condition (223).
Lets determine value A1 (see Draft 77):
A1 = (2 250 + 54) 400 - 2

314
, 54

= 217000 mm2.

## Force Nan = 75 kN is applied in the center of gravity of area 1, so = 0. For heavy-weight

concrete 1 = 0.5.
Lets check condition (223) without considering compression stress of concrete (that means
2 = 1.0) and taking b2 = 0.9 (that means Rbt = 0.8 MPa):
12A1Rbt = 0.5 1 217000 0.80 = 86800 N > Nan = 75000 N,
That means concrete strength as regards chipping is provided.
Accepted distances between anchors in the direction across and along the shearing force
equal to 260 mm > 5d = 5 18 = 90 mm and 150 mm > 7d = 7 18 = 126 mm meet the
requirements of Item 5.111. The distance from the anchor axis to the column surface equal
to 70 mm > 3.5d = 3.5 18 = 63 mm also meet requirements of Item 5.111.
Structure of the table welded to the embedded element provides even distribution of forces
on the stretched anchors and even transfer of compression stressed on concrete without
causing bending of the embedded element plane. Thats why thickness of this plate is to be
determined due to condition (218) taking Rsq = 0.58 Ry = 0.58 215 = 125 MPa, and anchor
448
= 16.9 mm:
diameter required by the calculation is dan = 18

t = 0.25 dan s = 0.25 16.9

Due to conditions of mechanized arc welding under flux (see Table 52, position 1) plate
thickness must be no more than 0,65d = 0.65 18 = 11.7 mm.
We take the plate thickness t = 14 mm.

Example 51. Given: embedded element of the column with welded diagonal member of
steel bracings according to Draft 78, ; tension force in the diagonal member caused by
wind loads 270 kN; embedded element anchors of reinforcement A-III (Rs = 365 MPa);
embedded element plate of steel 32 (Ry = 215 MPa); heavy-weight concrete of the
column 30; column reinforcement due to draft 78, , minimum longitudinal force in
the column 1100 kN; bending moment in the column at the level of the embedded element
in the plane of anchors 40 kN m.
It is required to design anchors of the embedded elements, to determine the plate thickness
and to check the strength of surrounding concrete as regards chipping.
C a l c u l a t i o n . We take location of anchor rows along the vertical line as its shown on
Draft 78, . The force in the diagonal member is resolved into the normal force N, applied
to the embedded element with eccentricity e0 = 100 mm, and shearing force Q:
N = 270 cos 5620 = 270 0,555 = 150 kN;
Q = 270 sin 5620 = 270 0,832 = 225 kN.
By z = 0.42 m and M = Ne0 = 150 0.1 = 15 kNm let's determine maximum tension force

Lets take two anchors with diameter 18 mm in each row. Lets arrange the anchors with
the minimum direction between them in the horizontal direction equal to 5d = 5 18 = 90
mm (see Item 5.111). Distances between anchors in the vertical direction (that means in the
direction of the shearing force Q) are equal to 140 mm > 7d = 7 18 = 126 mm also
corresponds to requirements of Item 5.111.
Lets determine the thickness of the embedded element plate. As the gusset plate which
transfers the break force to the embedded element is located in the middle of the distance
between vertical rows of anchors so the thickness of the plate is to be determined according
to the calculation of the strength of the plate as of the console beam with the overhanging
length 35 mm (see Draft 78) as regards tension force in one anchor equal to:

For determination of coefficients an and we determine maximum and minimum
concrete stress within the anchor length. For that we determine area Ared and inertia
moment Ired of the column section taking due to Draft 78, s = s = 1232 mm (228):
red = bh + 2s ( - 1) = 400 400 + 2 1232 (6,9 - 1) = 174,5 103 mm2;

Considering that area Aan is taken with the reserve we take that lan : lan = 305

## We take anchor length la = 300 mm.

Lets check the chipping concrete.
As all anchors are stretched and have no reinforcement so the calculation is made due to
condition (222). Lets determine the projection area of the chipping surface h considering
displacement of the inclined surface by 2e0 = 2 100 = 200 mm. By h = la = 300 mm
Ah = (420 - 200 + 2 300) 400 = 32.8 104 mm2.
As force N is applied in the center of gravity of area Ah, eh1 = h2 = 0, 1 = 0,5 (as for
heavy-weight concrete).
By formula (221) we get
a
218
2 = 1 + 0,2

la

As la = h, Rs, (la - h)/lan = 0. Considering that by b2 = 1.1, Rbt = 1,3 MPa.
12AhRbt = 0,5 1,145 32,8 104 1,3 = 244300 > N = 150 kN.
Lets check condition (222) by h = 200 mm < la. As at the distance h from the plate
chipping surface crosses only two pairs of anchors so
Aan1 = 1018 2 (418);
h = (420 - 200 + 2 200) 400 = 24,2 104 mm2,
l h

= 304 103 > N = 150 kN.
As after decreasing of h concrete bearing capacity is increased so calculation by less values
h is not required.
Lets check condition (222) by value h, equal to the column section height; that means h =
=400 mm, without considering the area between anchors [(420 - 200) 90 = 19800 mm2]:
h = (420 - 200 + 2 400) 400 - 19800 = 388 000 2 > 328000 mm2,
That means h is more than the area determined by h = 300 mm. So, concrete strength
against chipping is provided.
CALCULATION OF PREFABRICATED COLUMNS JOINTS

3.111. Column joints made by means of welding of reinforcement connecting rods (see
Item 5.90) are calculated for two work stages:
1st stage before concreting of the joint the calculation is made as regards the loads
acting during this construction phase; by determination of forces the joints are
accepted as hinged ones;
2nd after concreting of the joint the calculation is made as regards the loads acting
during this construction phase and during use of the building; by determination of
forces the joints are accepted as fixed ones.

3.112. Calculation of not concreted joints of the columns mentioned in Item 3.111 (Draft
79) is made as regards local compression of the column concrete by means of
centering filler plate due to condition (196) adding to its right part a part of force
acting on the reinforcement connecting rods and equal to:
Nout = 0.5 Rsc As
(229)

## Where coefficient of longitudinal bending for connecting rods determined in

compliance with SNiP II-23-81 (Table 72) by design length l0, equal to actual length
of welded connection rods;
s Section area of all connection rods.
At the same time value R*b,loc is multiplied by coefficient loc = 0.75 considering
unevenness of the load spread under centering filler plate and a part of the section
area of the column end Aef within the meshes of the confinement reinforcement with
dimensions no more than dimensions of the compression area loc1 is taken as design
area loc2.
As area loc1 it is taken the area of the centering filler plate or if the centering filler
plate is welded to the spread plate (see Draft 79) so its taken the area of this plate. At
the same time its dimensions must not exceed the dimensions of area Aef, and the
plate thickness must be no more than 1/3 of maximum distance from the plate edge to
the centering plate.

as for the column section on the area with cuttings due to Items 3.50 3.76
considering the following conditions:
) if there is confinement reinforcement meshes in the column concrete and in the
concrete for joints so the calculation is made due to Items 3.57 and 3.60 at the same
time it is considered solid section bounded by means of meshes rods located at the
surfaces of the concreted part of the column (Draft 80);
Draft 80. Design section of the concreted part of the column with confinement reinforcement meshes in
concrete of the column and concrete of the joint
1 concrete of the column; 2 concrete of the joint; 3 confinement reinforcement meshes

## b) if there is confinement reinforcement only in the concrete of the column so the

calculation is made either only with consideration of this confinement reinforcement
but without considering the concrete of the joint or with consideration of the joint
concrete but without considering confinement reinforcement of the column; the
strength of the joint is considered to be provided if the strength conditions due to at
least one of these calculations are met;
c) design resistance of the column concrete and of the joints concrete (Rb or Rb,red) are
multiplied by work conditions coefficient equal to bc = 0.9 and bs = 0.8;
d) in the calculation with consideration of the concreting value is determined by
formulas (15) or (104) as regards concrete class if its located on the whole width of
the most compressed surface, and as regards maximum concrete class if along the
compressed zone there is located partly concrete of the joints and partly concrete of
the column; in formula (104) it is always considered minimum value xy.
In the calculation of the joint considering concrete of the joint the section area of
concreting bs should be reduced to the area of the column section by means of
multiplying it by the ratio between design resistances of the joint concrete and the
column concrete by constant height of the joint concrete section.

## For symmetrically reinforced columns of rectangular section calculation of the

concreted joint can be made due to formulas of Items 3.67 and 3.68, taking for
hf = hf the height of cutting sections, and for bf = bf width of the section reduced to
concrete of the column, along the most compressed side of the section.
Coefficient, considering deflection of the column (see Item 3.54), is determined due
to geometrical characteristics of the column section beyond the joint zone.

3.114. Joints of columns made by means of connection of ends by means of the cement
layer or polymer solution with break of longitudinal reinforcement (see Item 5.91,
joints of the 1st and the 2nd type) at the use stage are calculated as eccentric
compressed concrete elements due to Item 3.6 considering confinement reinforcement
by meshes due to Items 3.57 and 3.60. At the same time design resistance of concrete
Rb,red is multiplied by the work condition coefficient b, equal to 0.9 or 1.0 by filling
of the joint by cement or polymer solution. If there is no solution between the ends of
the columns (for example in spherical joints, in joints with connected surfaces) the
mentioned above work condition coefficient is taken equal to b = 0,65.
CALCULATION EXAMPLES
Example 52. Given: a column joint due to Draft 81; concrete of the column 30
(Rbc = 15,5 MPa by b2 = 0,9; Rb,ser = 22 MPa); concrete for joints B20 (Rbs = 10,5 MPa by
b2 = 0,9; Rb,ser = 15 MPa); reinforcement connecting rods -III (Rs = Rsc = 365 MPa;
Rs,ser = 390 MPa), their section area s = 's = 4070 mm2 (436); confinement
reinforcement meshes made of rods -III, with diameter 8 mm (Rs,xy = 355 MPa) with
spacing s = 70 mm both in concrete of the column; longitudinal force during the use stage
N = 3900 kN by
f > 1,0 and N = 3300 kN by f = 1.0, its eccentricity in the direction
perpendicular to the cuttings considering the column bending e0 = 55 mm.
It is required to examine the strength of the joint during the use stage and to determine
maximum allowable longitudinal force in the joint during the construction stage.
Draft 81. For the calculation example 52
1 reinforcement connection joints; 2 spread plate; 3 centering filler plate

Calculation during the use stage. In compliance with Item 3.113a we take dimensions of
the section along the axes of end rods of meshes, that means b = h = 360 mm, h0 = 330 mm
(see Draft 81).
Lets determine design resistance of concrete of the column and of the joint considering
confinement reinforcement meshes according to Item 3.57.
For the concrete of columns:
Aef = 360 200 = 72 000 mm2 (see Draft 81);
nx = 5; lx = 170 mm; y = 3; ly = 360 mm; Asx = Asy = 50,3 mm2 (8);
xy =

Rbc,red = bc (Rbc + Rs,) = 0,9(15,5 + 2,0 0,0193 355) = 26,3 .

## For concrete of the joint in one of the cuttings

Rbs,red = bs (Rbs + Rs,) = 0,8(10,5 + 1,47 0,026 355) = 19,3 .
Lets determine value by formula (104) according to class of concrete of joints, as the
cutting is located along the whole width of the most compressed surface of the column, at
the same time we take minimum value xy = 0.0193:
2 = 10xy = 10 0.0193 = 0.19 > 0.15, we take 2 = 0.15;
= 0.85 - 0,008Rbs + 2 = 0.85 0.008 10.5 + 0.15 = 0.916 > 0.9, we take = 0.9.
We reduce the section of the joint to the concrete of the column, at the same time the width
of the cutting is equal:
R bs, red
19,3
bf = b
= 360
= 264 mm;
R bc, red
26,3

## The height of the cutting hf = 80 mm (see Item 81).

The joint strength is to be checked according to Item 3.67.
For that we determine value R by formula (14) taking sc, = 500 MPa:

Calculation of not concreted joint during the construction stage. Lets determine design
resistance of concrete against compression considering confinement reinforcement due to
Items 3.93 and 3.112.
Area of a part of the column end section bounded by meshes contours is:
Aef = 170 360 = 61200 mm2.
Area of the distribution plate is taken as the compression area as its thickness 20 mm is
more than 1/3 of the distance from the plate edge to the centering plate (50 1/3 = 17 mm),
at the same time the width of the compression area is taken equal to the width of the mesh
170 mm.
Aloc1 = 200 170 = 34 000 mm2.
As 360 mm < 3 200 mm, we take Aloc2 = Aef = 61200 mm2,
Therefore:

Maximum longitudinal force acting on the not concreted joint is:
N = R*b,loc Aloc1 + Nut = 47,7 34000 + 1245 103 = 2867 103 N

## CALCULATION OF CONCRETE KEYS

Where Q shearing force transferred by concrete keys;
tk, hk, lk depth, height and length of the concrete key;
k number of concrete keys inserted into the calculation and taken no more
than tree.
tk

Draft 82. Scheme for the calculation of concrete keys transferring shearing force from the
prefabricated element to monolithic concrete
1 prefabricated element; 2 monolith concrete

## By compression force N it is possible to determine the height of concrete keys by formula

Q 0 .7 N
hk =
(231)
2 Rbt l k n k
and to take it decreased in comparison with the height determined by formula (231), but no
more than one half as much.
If deck elements are connected by means of concrete keys so the length of keys inserted
into the calculation must be no more than a half of a span, at the same time value Q is taken
equal to the sum of shearing forces along the whole length of the element.
Due to conditions (230) (232) it is necessary to check the keys of a reinforced concrete
element and keys of additional concrete, taking design resistance of concrete keys Rb and
Rbt as for concrete structures.
Note. By the calculation of a stretched leg of a two-leg column as regards the pulling out of a column pocket
it is possible to take into account five keys.

ELEMENTS

FORMATION

OF

REINFORCED

CONCRETE

## 4.1.(4.1). It is necessary to calculate crack formation of reinforced concrete elements as

regards crack formation:
- Normal to the longitudinal axis of the element;
- Inclined to the longitudinal axis of the element.
Calculation of crack formation is made:
a) to find out if it is necessary to calculate the crack growth;
b) to determine the deformation calculation case.
In the reinforced element or its part there is no cracks if forces caused by total load (or
its part when load cause forces with different signs) and inserted into the calculation
with safety factor f = 1.0, are less than forces acting on the section during crack

It is possible to take without calculation that bending moments of rectangular and Tsections with compressed flanges have normal to the longitudinal axis cracks on the
most compressed parts if required by the calculation reinforcement coefficient >
0,005.

## 4.2.(4.5). Calculation of reinforced concrete elements as regards formation of

normal cracks is made due to the following condition
r < crc,
(233)
where r moment of external forces, located on one side on the considered section,
relating to the axis which is parallel to zero line and which goes through
the heart point, most distant from the stretched zone where crack
formation is checked;
crc moment acting on the section normal to the longitudinal axis of the element
during crack formation and determined by formula
Mcrc = Rbt,serWpl Mshr,
(234)
here Mshr moment of force Nshr caused by concrete settlement relating to the same
axis like for determination of r; sign of the moment is determined by
spinning direction ("plus" if directions are opposed, "minus" if direction
of moments shr and r are the same).
For free supported beans and slabs moment crc is determined by formula
Mcrc = Rbt,serWpl - Nshr (eop + r).
(235)
Force Nshr is considered as external tension force; its value and eccentricity relating to
the center of gravity of the section are determined by formulas:
Nshr = shr (As + As);
(236)
' '
A y As y s
e0 p = s s
,
(237)
As As'
where shr stress caused by concrete settlement equal to: 40 MPa for heavy-weight
concrete 35 and less by natural hardening and 35 MPa by heat treating;
for other kinds and classes of concrete value shr is taken due to SNiP
2.03.01-84 (Table5, position 8);

s, s distance from the center of gravity of the section to the centers if gravity of
sections of reinforcement S and S.
If reinforcement coefficient < 0.01 is possible in formulas (234) and (235) so values
Wpl and r are to be determined as for concrete section taking Nshr = 0 and As = A's = 0.
Value Mr is determined by formulas:
- For bending element(Draft 83, )
r = ;
- For eccentric compressed element (Draft 83, )
Mr = N(eo - r),
(238)
- For centrally- and eccentric (. 83, )
Mr = N(eo + r),
(239)
In formulas (234), (235), (238) and (239):

r the distance from the center of gravity of the section to the heart point which is
most distant from the stretched zone whose crack formation is checked.

## Value r is determined by formulas:

4.3.(4.7). Resistance moment of the transformed sections for end stretched fibre Wpl

where Ibo, Iso, Iso inertia moments of sections areas of compressed concrete zone,

where Sbo, Sso, Sso static moments of the section area of the compressed concrete

where S red static moment of the area of transformed section calculated without
considering the area of stretched overhangs relating to the end stretched

Ared area of the transformed section calculated without considering a half of the
area of stretched overhangs.
Condition (245) can be used if calculated according to it zero line crosses the rib of a Tor I-section.

(248)
Where b3 see Table 21.
CALCULATION OF REINFORCED CONCRETE ELEMENTS AS REGARDS THE
CRACK FORMATION

4.5. (4.13). Reinforced concrete elements are calculated as regards formation of cracks:
- Normal to the longitudinal axis of the element;
- Inclined to the longitudinal axis of the element.
Examination of the width of the crack opening is not required if according to the
calculation due to Items 4.1 4.4 they are not caused by dead loads, long-term loads
and short-term loads inserted into the calculation with the safety factor f = 1.0.
For bending and eccentric compressed elements of statically undeterminable systems
by one-row reinforcement mentioned in Table 1, position 4, it is not necessary to check
the width of the opening of normal cracks in the following cases:

## ) for reinforcement -I and -II:

by any reinforcement coefficient , if diameter d 20 mm;
by 0,01, if diameter d = 22 40 mm;
) for reinforcement -III:
by any reinforcement coefficient , if diameter d 8 mm;
by 0,01, if diameter d = 10 25 ;
by 0,015, if diameter d = 28 40 ;
) for reinforcement -1 by 0,006 by any diameters.
By calculation of crack formation the force caused by concrete settlement Nshr is taken
equal to zero.

4.6. In the general case calculation of crack opening is made two times: short-term and
long-term crack opening (see Item 1.15).
For elements mentioned in Table 1 position 4 and made of heavy-weight and lightweight concrete it is possible to make only one calculation during examination of
opening of cracks normal to the longitudinal axis of the element:
M rl 2
If
so long-term crack formation is checked;
Mr 3

If

point of application of the resultant of forces in the compressed zone of the
section above the crack determined due to Item 4.16, at the same time for
eccentric stretched elements by < 0,8ho z is taken equal to zs distance between
centers of gravity of reinforcement S and S, coefficient v in formula (277) is

Value of stress s caused by the total load determined considering coefficient n, must
be no more than Rs,ser. It is not necessary to check this condition for statically
undeterminable structures with reinforcement of one class by its location in one row.

## Simplified way of determination of s. For bending moments it is possible to

determine s by the following formula:

in several rows along the section height are multiplied by the coefficient n.

4.10 (4.14). The width of crack opening caused by all loads is determined as a sum of the
width of crack opening caused by dead loads and long-term loads (by l > 1.0) and
expansion of the width of the opening caused by short-term loads (by l = 1.0). So the
width of the opening is determined by the following formula

a crc = a crc ,l 1 + s 1
l
sl
(265)
where acr,l the width of crack opening caused by dead loads and long-term loads;
l > 1,0 see Item 4.7; if value acr,l is determined considering formula (253), so
coefficient l in formula (265) is replaced by the product l l1 (where l1
see Item 4.8);
sl, s are determined due to Item 4.9, caused by the sum of dad loads and longterm loads as well as by all loads.
Calculation of opening of cracks inclined to the longitudinal axis of the element
4.11(4.17). The width of the crack opening inclined to the longitudinal axis of the element
by reinforcement by means of stirrups which are normal to the longitudinal axis must
be determined by the following formula

(where q1 see Item 3.32), so value can be taken equal to only 2h.

For elements made of light-weight concrete 7.5 and lower value acrc, determined by
formula (266), must be increased by 30 percent.
By determination of the width of inclined cracks caused by all loads it is necessary to
consider instructions of Item 4.10. At the same time in formula (265) coefficient l is
taken according to the present Item and the ratio sl/s is replaced by the ration between
the stresses swl/sw, which are calculated by formula (267) of the sum of dead loads
It is possible to decrease value rc by 1.5 times in comparison with the value
determined by formula (266), if the element is reinforced by means of longitudinal rods
with the same diameter like diameter of stirrups and with the distances along the
section height equal to the stirrups spacing s.

EXAMPLES OF CALCULATION
Example 53. Given: a reinforced concrete floor slab with the cross section dimensions (for
a half of the slab section) due to Draft 86: b = 85 mm, h = 400 mm, bf = 725 mm, hf= 50
mm; heavy-weight concrete 25; main reinforcement A-III (Rs = 365 MPa; s = 2105
MPa), located in two rows (a1 = 58 mm; a2 = 33 mm); its section area s = 760 mm2
(222) ; total moment in the middle of the span tot = 69 kNm; all loads are dead loads
and long-term loads; due to the strength calculation = 92,3 kNm and = 30 mm.
It is required to calculate the opening of normal to the longitudinal axis of the element

## C a l c u l a t i o n . ho = h = 400 58 = 342 mm. So according to Item 4.1 we take that

the element works with the cracks in the stretched zone.
For determination of the long-duration crack opening we determine the stress in
reinforcement s. Due to formula (263), value s at the level of the center of gravity of
reinforcement is:
M
69
s = Rs
= 365
= 273 MPa
Mu
92.3
As reinforcement is located in two rows so we calculate coefficient n is to be determined
by formula (262):

h x a 2 400 30 33
=
= 1.08
h x a1 400 30 58
The stress in the lower reinforcement rod:
s = 2731.08 = 294 MPa.
The width of the crack opening we determine by formula (249). As = = 0.0262 > 0.02
so value
is taken equal to 0.02.
Due to
Item
4.7,

1.0; l = 1.6 15 = 1.6 15 0.02 = 1.3 ;

20(3.5 100 0.02)3 22 = 0.16 mm

Which is less than the maximum allowable width of the crack opening acrc2 = 0,3 mm.

Example 54. Given: reinforced concrete foundation slab with the cross section dimensions
h = 300 mm, b = 1150 mm; a = 42 mm; heavy-weight concrete 15 (Rbt,ser = 1.15 MPa;
Eb = 2.05104 MPa); main reinforcement A-III (Rs = 365 MPa; s = 2105 MPa); its section
area s = 923 mm2 (6 14); moment in the design section caused by dead loads and longterm loads Ml = 63 kNm, by short-term loads Msh = 4 kNm; limit moment of strength u
= 80,5 kNm; the foundation is located above the ground waters level.
It is required to calculate the opening of normal cracks.
C a l c u l a t i o n . ho = h - = 300 - 42 = 258 mm. Lets determine if its necessary to
calculate the width of the crack opening due to Item 4.5. For that we determine the crack
formation moment Mcrc.
As M r = M tot = M l + M sh = 63 + 4 = 67 kNm > M crc = 34.8 kNm so moment Mcrc is
determined for the concrete section using formula (246):
Mcrc = Rbt,serWpl = 0,292bh2Rbt,ser = 0.292115030021.15 = 34.75106 Mmm = 34,8 kNm.
As Mr = tot = Ml + sh = 63 + 4 = 67 > Mcrc = 34.8 kNm, so it is necessary to check
the crack opening.
As foundation is located below the ground waters level so maximum allowable crack
opening due to Table 1, position 4 is acrc2 = 0.3 mm, thats why by

according to Item 4.6, the calculation is made only as
Mr

regards long-duration crack opening caused by moment Ml.
The width of the crack opening is to be determined by formula (249).
The stress in the reinforcement s is to be determined by the simplified formula (263):
M
63
s = Rs l = 365
= 286 MPa
Mu
80.5
Coefficients inserted into formula (249) are taken equal to: = 1.0; = 1.0; d = 14 mm, so

286
a crc = l s 20(3.5 100 )3 d = 1.0 1.55 1.0
20(3.5 100 0.0031)3 14 = 0.34 m

Which is more than maximum allowable value acrc2 = 0.3 mm, so it is recommended to
correct value acrc due to Item 4.8. As < 0.008 so such correction is allowable. As
a2 = = 42 mm < 0.2h = 0.2 300 = 60 mm, so correction of value acrc, due to Item 4.8 is
not to be made.
Due to formula (256) we determine value after determination of:

E b 2.05 10 4

## Mo = Mcr + bh2Rbt,ser = 34,8106 + 0,454115030021.15 = 88.8106 Nmm = 88.8 kNm.

As = 88.8 kNm > Mr = 67 kNm, so we determine coefficient b by formula (253):
M M crc M 0

f1 = r

l1 = 1.8 crc = 1.8
= 0.935 < 1 ,
Mr
67
so we take l1 = 1;

## b = f1l1 = 0.79 < 1.

Considering coefficient b, the width of the crack opening acrc = 0.340.79 = 0.269 mm <
0.3 mm, that means less than maximum allowable value.

Example 55. Given: a reinforced concrete column of the industrial building with the cross
section dimensions h = 500 mm, b = 400 mm; a = a = 50 mm; heavy-weight concrete 15
(Rb,ser = 11 MPa; Rbt,ser = 1.15 MPa; Eb = 2.05104 MPa); main reinforcement A-III (s =
2105 MPa); its section area As = As = 1232 mm2 (2 28); longitudinal compression force
N = Nl = 500 kN; moment caused by total load Mtot = 240 kNm, including moment of dead
loads and long-term loads Ml = 150 kNm.
It is required to calculate the column as regards the crack opening.
C a l c u l a t i o n . h o = h - a = 500 - 50 = 450 mm. Lets determine if its necessary to
calculate the crack opening. For that end we check condition (233). As
A
1232
= s =

bh0 400 450
calculated as for the concrete section. Using formula (246), we find:
Mcrc = 0,292bh2Rbt,ser = 0.29240050021.15 = 33.6106 Nmm.
Heart distance r we determine by formula (241). For that we determine b as for elastic

Due to formula (238) we determine moment Mr:

that means condition (233) is not met. So examination of the crack opening is required.

heavy-weight concrete 15 (Rbt,ser = 1.15 MPa; Eb = 2,05104 MPa); two-legs stirrups
made of reinforcement -I (s = 2.1105 MPa) with the spacing s = 150 mm, diameter 8

It is required to make the calculation of inclined cracks.
C a l c u l a t i o n . Lets check if the calculation of cracks is necessary according to condition

Due to Table 21, b3 = 0.6.
b3Rbt,serbho = 0.61.15200370 = 51060 N < Qmax = 117 kN,
that means inclined cracks are formed and the calculation is required.
The calculation is made due to Item 4.11. Lets determine values Q and Qb1.
q1 = g + v/2 = 12.5 + 30/2 = 27.5 kN/n;
b4 = 1.5 (see Table 21).
As 0.2b4Rbt,serb = 0.21.51.15200 = 56.9 N/mm > q1 = 27.5 N/mm, during determination

CALCULATION OF ELEMENTS OF REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES AS
REGARDS THE DEFORMATIONS

## 4.12(4.22) Deformations (deflections, angle of rotation) of elements of reinforced concrete

structures must be calculated due to formulas of structural theory by means of

4.21.

## 4.13(4.23). Curvature is determined:

a) For parts of the element where there are no cracks normal to the longitudinal axis
of the element (see Item 4.1) as for the solid body;
b) For the parts of the element where there are cracks normal to the longitudinal axis
of the element as the ratio of the difference of average deformations of the end fibre
of the compressed concrete zone and longitudinal stretched reinforcement to the
working height of the element section.
During calculation of deformations the force from the concrete settlement Nshr is taken
equal to zero.

## Determination of reinforced concrete elements curvature on the parts without cracks

in the stretched zone

cracks total value of the curvature must be determined by the following formula

## By determination of deflections of statically undeterminable structures it is

recommended to consider redistribution of moments caused by cracks formation and
non-elastic deformations of concrete.
For bending elements of constant section which have cracks on each part within
which bending moment has no any sign the curvature can be calculated for the most
stressed section taking it for other sections of the same part variable proportionally
with the values of bending moment (Draft 88).

of shear forces on their deflection. In that case total deflection ftot is equal to the sum
of deflections caused by deformations of deflection fm and deformation of
displacement fq.

## Deflection fq, caused by deformation of displacement is determined by the following

formula

(295)

where Q x shear force in the section caused by the directed to the required
displacement unit force applied in the section where deflection is
determined;

## Determination of longitudinal deformations

4.25. Relative deformations o (elongation or shortening) in the direction of the
longitudinal axis of elements are determined in the following manner.
1. Relative deformations of eccentric compressed and eccentric stretched elements
with one-valued diagram of stresses:
) for eccentric compressed elements or their single parts by formula
N
Ne
0 =

y0
(298)
2vEb Ared 2vEb I red
b) for eccentric stretched elements or its parts if there are no cracks by formula
N b 2
Ne0 b 2

y0
(299)
0 =
b1 Eb Ared b1 Eb I red
In formulas (298) and (299) sign plus corresponds to deformations of shortening,
sign minus to deformations of elongation;

c) for eccentric stretched elements or their parts if there are cracks (that means for
elements mentioned in Item 4.18) by formula
' y + sm ( z s y s )
0 = sm s
(300)
zs
where sm, sm average values of elongation of reinforcement S and S', determined
by formulas:
N (z s es )
sm =
s
E s As z s
(301)
Ne s
'
sm

s'
E s As' z s
here zs, s, s see Item 4.18.
2. Relative deformations of bending, eccentric compressed and eccentric stretched
elements with double-valued diagram of stresses in the section:
) for elements or their parts without cracks in the stretched zone by formula
M b 2
N
y0 .

(302)
0 =
2vEb Ared b1 Eb I red

Rule of signs is the same like for formulas (298) and (299);
b) for parts of elements mentioned in Item 4.15 which have cracks in the stretched
zone by formula
y sm (h0 y s )
(303)
0 = bm s
h0
where sm, bm average values of relative elongation of reinforcement and relative
shortening of end compressed fibre of concrete on the part between cracks determined
by the following formulas:

m N

E s As z

bM s
=
z ( f + )bh0 Eb v

sm =

s Ms

(304)
(305)

where Ms, s, z, f, see Items 4.15 4.17; rules of signed see in Item 4.15;
c) for the parts of eccentric stretched elements mentioned in Item 4.19 by means of
linear interpolation between value determine by formula (300) by s = 0 (that
means by o = yso) and value o determined by formula (303) by s = 0,8ho (that means
by
o = 0,8 ho + yso) where yso see Item 4.19.
In formulas (298) (305):
ys distance from the fibre under review to the center of gravity of reinforcement
S;
the same to the center of gravity of the section;
b1, b2 see Item 4.14; by short-duration action of the load b2 = 1.0;
v see Item 4.15.
Deformations , determined by formulas (298) (303) with sign plus correspond
to shortening, with sign minus to elongation.
By dead loads, long-term and short-term loads acting at the same time value is to
be determined similar to determination of total curvature due to Item 4.21.

## 4.26. Shortening (elongation) of elements at the level of considered fibre is determined by

the following formula
n

l = oi li

(306)

i =1

## where i relative longitudinal deformations in the section, located in the middle of

the part with the length li;
quantity of parts on which the length of the elements is divided.

## Approximate methods of deformations calculation

of constant section, used by normal and high humidity (air humidity more than 40
percent) are obvious less than maximum allowable deflections if the following
condition is met

4.30. For short elements (l/h < 10) of constant section which work as free supported beams
deflection is determined due to Item 4.29 and is multiplied by coefficient q,
considering influence of the shear deformation. Coefficient q is determined by the
following formula

q
q = 1 +
m

(315)

l
where q = 0.5 if there are no as normal as inclined cracks, that means if conditions
(233) and (248) are met;
q = 1.5 if there are normal or inclined cracks;
m see Table 35.
Examples of calculation
Example 57. Given: reinforced concrete roof slab of a civil building of rectangular section
with dimensions h = 120 mm, b = 1000 mm, ho = 105 mm; the span l = 3.1 m, heavyweight concrete 25 (Eb =2.7104 MPa; Rbt.ser = 1.6 MPa); stretched reinforcement -II
(s = 2.1105 MPa), area of its cross section s = 393 mm2 (5 10); total distributed load

qtot = 7 kN/m, including its part of dead loads and long-term loads ql = 6 kN/m; deflection
is restricted by esthetic requirements.
It is required to calculate the slab as regards deformations.

Then lim =

Ml

As 0 =

Lets determine the curvature in the middle of the span caused by the moment l (as
deflection is restricted by esthetic requirements).
Lets take without calculation that the element has cracks in the stretched zone, so
curvature is to be determined by formula (309).
From Table 34 due to = 0.028 and f = ft = 0 we find values 1 = 0.393 and 2 = 0.10,

As l/h > 10, so we dont take influence of the shear deformation into account.

Example 58: Given: roof collar beam of a public building of rectangular section with
dimensions b = 200 mm, h = 600 mm; a = 80 mm; collar-beam span l = 4.8 m; heavyweight concrete 25 (b = 2.7 104 MPa; Rbt,ser = 1.6 MPa); Forking reinforcement -III
(Es = 2 105 MPa), area of its cross section s = 2463 mm (4 28); total distributed load
qtot = 85.5 kN/m, including its load from dead loads and long-term load ql = 64 kN/m;
deflection is restricted by esthetic requirements; air humidity in the room is higher than 40
percent.
It is required to calculate the collar beam as regards deformations.

that means deflection of the collar beam is les than the maximum allowable value (see

Example 59. Given: reinforced concrete slab of the roof with the span 5.7 m; dimensions
of the cross section (for a half of the slab section) due to draft 89; light-weight concrete
25 (Rb,ser = 18.5 MPa; Rbt,ser = 1.6 MPa), average density D1600 (Eb =16.5103 MPa);
main reinforcement -II (Es = 2.1105 MPa), its section area As = 380 mm2 (122);
distributed dead load and long-term load on the slab is ql = 8.75 kN/m; deflection of the
slab is restricted by esthetic requirements; the room covered with the slab has normal air
humidity (40 75 percent).
It is necessary to calculate the slab as regards the deformations.
Draft 89. To the calculation example 59

C a l c u l a t i o n . Moment in the middle of the slab caused by dead loads and long-term
loads for a half of the section is:
q l 2 8.750 5.7 2
M = l =

28
From Draft 89 we have: ho = 300 31 = 269 mm; b = (95 + 65)/2 = 80 mm; b'f = 730 mm;
hf = 30 mm.
As approximate methods of calculation as regards deformations do not belong to structures
of light-weight concrete so curvature is to be calculated by formulas of Items 4.15 4.17 as
A
380
for elements with cracks in the stretched zone ( = s =

bh0 80 269
means due to Item 4.1 in the stretched zone there are cracks).
Lets determine curvature of the slab in the middle of the span by formula (271). Moment
Ms by action of dead loads and long-term loads is Ms = = 17.8 kNm.
Relative height of the stretched zone of concrete is to be calculated by formula (274). For
that we determine the following values:

5. CONSTRUCTIVE REQUIREMENTS
GENERAL POSITIONS

5.1.(5.1). During design of concrete and reinforced concrete structures and details to
provide their economic and quality manufacturing, required durability and cooperation
work of concrete and reinforcement it is necessary to follow constructive requirements
of the present section.
5.2. Structures must be of simple shape. It is recommended to use reinforcement, embedded
elements and lifting loops which are manufactured in form of finished products
according to norms and state standards. Reinforcement must be designed in form of
enlarged blocks and spatial frameworks to spend less time to put them into the
framework.
It is necessary to take minimum possible stripping strength and transporting strength of
concrete for effective use of industrial areas.
It is necessary to aim at unification of reinforcement and embedded elements in some
structures and their series, at little number of different marks and diameters of steel,
types of reinforcement elements mashes and frameworks, spacing of longitudinal and
cross rods.
MINIMUM DIMENSIONS OF ELEMENTS SECTIONS

5.3.(5.2). Minimum dimensions of the section of concrete and reinforced concrete elements
determined due to the calculation as regards corresponding forces and corresponding
groups of limit states must be specified considering economical requirements, necessity
to unify framework forms and reinforcement as well as conditions of accepted
technology of structures manufacturing.
Besides dimensions of elements sections must be taken so that to follow the
requirements of reinforcement location in the section (thickness of concrete protection
layers, distance between rods, etc) and anchorage of reinforcement.

## 5.4.(5.3). Thickness (Note: Hereinafter values of sections dimensions, thickness of

protection layer of concrete and other terms mentioned in the present Guidelines belong
to nominal values specified during design and shown on projects. These Nominal
Values can vary in the reality but variations must not exceed values given in the
corresponding state standards technical specifications and other documents) of solid
slabs must be taken in millimeters no less than:
for roofs........................................................................................ 40
for floors of civil and public buildings......................................... 50
for floors of industrial buildings................... 60
for slabs of light-weight concrete 7,and less in all cases ......... 70

## Minimum thickness of prefabricated slabs must be determined due to condition of

providing of required thickness of concrete protection and conditions of reinforcement
location in the slab (see Items 5.32 5.41).

## Dimensions of sections of eccentric compressed elements must be taken so that their

elasticity lo/i in any direction as a rule was not more than:
For concrete elements............................................... 200 (for rectangular sections by lo/h 60)
For columns which are elements of buildings...... 120 (by lo/h 35)
For concrete elements............................................... 90 (for rectangular sections by lo/h 26)

## 5.5. Dimensions of prefabricated concrete and reinforced concrete elements must be

specified considering carrying capacity and dimensioning restrictions of technological,
transport and installation equipment in the factories and on the building sites. In case of
need it is necessary to consider the possibility to lift a reinforced concrete element with
the form.
5.6. To avoid damages caused by local concentrations of stresses by abrupt changing of
direction of the element surfaces (for example in internal angles) it is necessary to
provide flattening of contours in form of slopes, sloped edges or curving of little
dimensions (up to 50 mm) in order not to make local reinforcement (Draft 90, , , ).
In external sharp corners it is necessary to make sloped edges or curving to avoid
chipping of concrete (Draft 90, ).
Draft 90. Sloped edges and curving
curving in the ribbed slab; sloped edge between a flange and a wall in a T-beam; combination of
the sloped edge and a curving in the joint of the truss; flattening of the sharp corner in the collar-beam;
curving in the hole for communications, strapping, etc.

5.7. Holes in reinforced concrete elements for communications, stripping, etc must be not
big and located within the cells of reinforcing meshes and frameworks so not to cut the
reinforcement and not to make local reinforcement. Corners of the hole must be smooth
(Draft 90, ).
5.8. During design of concrete and reinforced concrete structures their shapes must be
specified considering the form and conditions of use of the formwork.
By using of forms with a drop side the shape of a detail must not prevent the turning of
the side (Draft 91, ) when removing the formwork.
By using solid molds to remove the detail out of the formwork it is necessary to design
technological slopes no less than 1:10 (Draft 91, , ). In case of use of solid forms with
pressing out the slope must be no less than 1:15 (Draft 91, ).
By immediate removal of formworks with fixed vertical moving of the forming element
(to avoid crashing of concrete) (Draft 91, , ) the slope must be no less than 1:50.
By using of forms with one fixed and one drop side to provide vertical lifting of the
structure by removing of the framework it is used changing from the larger to the less
width of the detail [for example from the lower flange to the wall (Draft 91, )]; it must

be smooth at the angle no less than 45 degrees. This requirement can be not considered
if the framework has a pressing-out system (Draft 91, ).
Using of pressing out and immediate remain of the form work must be approved by the
manufacturer.

## Separate reinforcing rods

5.9. Assortment of reinforcing rods for reinforced concrete structures is given in Annex 4.
5.10. During design of reinforced concrete structures especially with great volume of
reinforcement it is necessary to consider the following characteristics of reinforcing
rods:
- Dimensions of cross sections of profiled section rods considering allowable
deviations;
- Bending radius of rods and dimensions of bent elements;
- Allowable deviations from the project dimensions by arrangement of rods
welding meshes and frameworks, embedded elements etc.
5.11. during design of bent rods diameters and angles of bending must meet the
requirements of Table 37. Length of bent rods is determined due to the axis of the rod.

## Dimensions of hooks for anchorage of plain rods of reinforcement must be taken

according to Draft 92.

## Welded connections of reinforcement

5.12.(5.32). reinforcement of hot-rolled steel of plain and profiled sections, heat-treated
steel-class -III and simple reinforcing wire, are made as a rule by means of

contact welding point welding and butt-seam welding. It is possible to use semiautomatic arch welding, as well as manual welding due to Item 5.18.

5.13 (5.33). Types of welding connections and welding methods must be chosen
considering use conditions and welding capacity of steel, technical-economical
indexes and technological capabilities of the manufacturing factory in compliance
with the instructions of state standards and technical specifications for welded
reinforcement (Table 38).
Connections not mentioned in the current standard documents can be produced in
accordance with the projects approved in compliance wit the established procedure.
End joints can be made without using welding by means of swedge casings in
compliance with the approval of the manufacturing factory.

## 5.14.(5.34). In the plant conditions during producing of welded reinforcing meshes,

frameworks and connections it is necessary to use contact welding along the length of
some rods point welding and butt-seam welding (see positions 1, 2 and 5 of Table
38).
5.15.(5.35).During installation of reinforcement details and prefabricated reinforced
concrete structures for connection for butt jointing of rods with diameter 20 mm and
more it is necessary to use tub welding in special copper or graphite removable
forms (see positions 7-9 Table 38), as well as tub welding, bath-seam welding and
multi-layer welding on steel cover-brackets1 [a cover-bracket additional
constructive detail, taking a part of the axis load, whose section area is no more than
50 percent of the connected rod section area] (see positions 10-13 of Table 38). At the
same time first of all it is necessary to use power-activated methods of welding (see
positions 7, 8, 10, 12 of Table 38), providing quality control of connections. In special
cases it is possible to use welding of vertical rods by means of multi-layer welding
without additional elements (see position 14 of Table 38).
5.16. Design of butt welding joints using prefabricated forms and other forming elements is
made considering the following requirements:
) distance between connected rods, as well as distance from the connected rods to the
nearest surface of the reinforced concrete element must be taken considering the
possibility of installation of forming elements and removal of prefabricated forms.
Dimensions and methods of installation of prefabricated forms of steel cover-brackets
must be taken due to standard documents for welding. Total free length of
reinforcement rods must conform to the distance between surfaces of connected
reinforced concrete elements and must be no less than 350 mm. Distance from the
butt-ends of free length of reinforcement rods to the surfaces of elements (considering
protection of concrete against overheating) is taken no less than 100 mm (Draft 93, );
) location of connected rods must provide the possibility to insert an electrode at
angle no more than 30 degrees to the vertical line (Draft 93, , );

) gaps between connected rods by arch tub welding must be made in conformity
with the standard state documents and welding norms. By the gaps which are more
than maximum allowable ones connection of rods can be made by using of an
intermediate element fill piece of a reinforcing rod of the same diameter and class
like connected rods.
Draft 93. Arch tub welding of reinforcement outputs.
end connection of rods; horizontal connection; vertical connection

5.17. For connection of rod reinforcement with diameter 10 18 mm to each other during
installation, as well as for connection of rod reinforcement with embedded and
anchors must be used arch welding with extended joints (see positions 15 and 16 of
Table 38 and position 1 of Table 53). By decreased demands for the connection
strength (no more than 50 percent of the strength of the connected rod) it is possible
to weld rods with diameter 8 mm. Welding of rods with extended joints by diameters
20 an more is possible in special cases.
5.18. If there is no equipment for contact welding it is possible to use arch welding in the
following cases:
) for connection along the length of reinforcement with diameter 10 mm and more
(see position 15 and 16 of Table 38);
b) for cross connections of reinforcing meshes with un-normalized strength (see Item
5.19 and position 3 of Table 38).
c) for welded connections with normalized strength in meshes and frameworks with
required additional constructive elements at points of rods connections (gusset plates,
fill pieces, hooks and other) or with forced forming of the joint (see position 4 of
Table 38).

5.19. Cross welded connections with non-standardized strength are possible in the
following cases:
) in meshes with main reinforcement of periodic profile for reinforcement of slabs,
walls, etc;
) in connections of longitudinal and cross reinforcing rods of flat meshes with rods
which form a spatial framework if the element doesnt work for torsion and
longitudinal rods are not considered in the calculation as compressed ones;
) in points of connection of longitudinal rods of spatial frameworks with cross
reinforcement in form of continuous spirals.

N o t e . Instructions for welding of high-strength rod reinforcement of classes A-IV, -IVC, A-V and A-VI are given in SNiP 2.03.01-84 (see required Annex 3) and GOST 1409885.

In all other cases including by welding of anchor rods of meshes (see Items 3.44, 5.45
and 5.46), welded connections must have standardized strength.
Cross connections with non-standardized strength can be made by means of arch
welding with point tack weld (see position 3 of Table 38), as well as by means of
point manual welding (see positions 1 and 2 of Table38) by decreased demands to the
connection strength regulated by GOST 10922 75, by decreased demands to
minimum relative settlement h/d' (see draft of position 1 Table 38) regulated by
GOST 14098 85, but no less than mentioned in Table 8 of 393-78.

5.20. It is possible to connect the rods by means of welding in any case along the length of
the detail. Connections (joints) made by arch welding must be located so that they
didnt prevent concreting, that means it is necessary to make them in points with less
reinforcement, to prevent several joints in one section.
Flat welding meshes1
[1Hereinafter term flat welding meshes includes any flat welded reinforcing details (meshes, frameworks)].

## 5.21. During design of flat meshes it is necessary to consider the requirements of

unification of dimensions, spacing and diameters of cross and longitudinal
reinforcement. Meshes must be transportable, convenient for storage and for
installation into a form. First of all it is recommended to use ready-mixed meshes or
meshes of centralized manufacturing with dimensions corresponding to state
standards and norms.
Reinforcing meshes which do not meet the mentioned above requirements must be
designed considering their manufacturing by means of point welding on multielectrode machines.

5.22. Parameters of wide welded meshes are given in Table 39, of narrow meshes in
Table 40.
In order to reduce the number of realignment of multi-electrode machines it is
recommended to unify the reinforcement spacing during design, basically
longitudinal reinforcement for reinforced concrete details of the present series or
catalogue.

It is possible to take spacing of rods which are different of the values mentioned in
Tables 39 and 40 during design of details for a certain producing factory in
conformity with the parameters of the equipment under conditions of unification of
these spacing on the factory.
Welded meshes produced on multi-electrode machines must have rectangular
contours with rectangular cells. At the ends of rods there must not be any bendings,
hooks or loops. They can be used only in compliance with the approval of the
producing plant.

5.23. Welded meshes whose constructive parameters do not allow the produce them on
multi-electrode machines must be designed in conformity with manufacturing
capabilities of single-point welding machines (Table 41).
5.24. Ready-mixed welded meshes as well as meshes and frameworks produced on multielectrode and single-point machines can be used as finished reinforcing details or as a
semi finished good which must be followed up (cutting of a mesh, making of holes,
bending of a mesh to make a spatial framework and as and exception welding of
Additional rods can be welded by means of contact welding (Draft 94, , )
considering instructions of Table 41, as well as electric arch welding by means of
longitudinal joints (Draft 94, ) considering requirements of Item 5.18.

## 5.25. By reinforcement of sides of beams of variable height it is recommended:

) to use frameworks with groups of rods of one height by the slope no more than
1:10 (Draft 95, );
b) to use separate rectangular frameworks (Draft 95, ) or rectangular meshes with
the following cutting along the inclined length (Draft 95, ) with a border rod in case
of need by the slope no more than 1:10.
By reinforcement of rectangular slabs it is recommended to use welding meshes
produced of rectangular ones as result of their cutting (Draft 95, ).

## Spatial reinforcing frameworks

5.26. Reinforcement of rectangular elements (especially linear ones) must be designed as a
rule in form of spatial frameworks.
Spatial frameworks can be made as a whole detail or in form of spatial blocks used in
combination with flat or bent meshes, as separate rods, etc.
Spatial frameworks must be designed as hard ones for their storage, transportation
and to follow their design location by laying them into a form. Their rigidity must be
provided by means of installation of required bracings in form of rods, straps, etc.
Draft 95. Reinforcement of details of variable dimensions
sides of a beam by means of a mesh with groups of cross rods of the same length; the same, by
separate rectangular meshes; the same, by a rectangular mesh with cutting it along the inclined line and
adding of border rods; by welded meshes for slabs of variable width, produced by cutting of a rectangular
mesh

Embedded elements and tie-down details (hooks, pipes, etc) can be fixed to the
spatial framework if required accuracy of the location is provided. If deviations from
the design location can cause decrease of bearing capacity of embedded elements so it
is necessary to fix these details to the form.

5.27. By forming of spatial frameworks using bent flat meshes its recommended to use
bent meshes with contours according to types shown on Draft 96, and produced by
serial bending equipment. At the same time it is necessary to meet the following
requirements:
-

## length of meshes must be no more than 6 m (by approval of a producing factory

length up to 9 m is possible);
length of bent part (see Draft 97, ) no less than 60 mm and no less than 8d,
diameter of bent rods no more than 12 mm (approved by producing factory up to
32 mm).

## Draft 96. Examples of shapes of bent welding meshes

recommended (meshes are produced by serial equipment); allowable (require special equipment or
instruments); by packing of bent elements of spatial frameworks for storage and transportation (location
of straight longitudinal rods is shown relative)

## By mass-producing in compliance with approval of a producing factory it can be used

bent meshes of other shapes for example according to the type shown on 96, , whose
manufacturing requires special equipment and instruments.
Spatial frameworks which must be stored or transported should be designed of
elements which can be packed densely (Draft 96, ).
Diameter of rods of bent welded meshes, radii and angles of bending, location of
longitudinal meshes must be specified considering class of used steel in compliance
with Draft 97.
Draft 97. Parameters of bent welded meshes
, point of bending is distant from the longitudinal rods (parameters of bending are taken due to Table
37); place of bending coincides with the longitudinal rod located on the external side of the mesh
(diameter D is taken due to Table 37 with the increase by 2d), place of bending of a mesh coincides with
the longitudinal rod which is located outside; place of bending of a mesh coincides with the longitudinal
rod of a big diameter, located outside of a mesh; end parts of a bent rod of a mesh; d diameter of a bent
rod; d1 diameter of a longitudinal rod; D diameter of a relative circle of a rod bending

5.28. Formation of reinforcement details into the spatial framework must be made by
means of point welding of cruciform crossings of rods by means of welding tongs.
Minimum clear distance between rods comfortable for electrodes of welding tongs,
for frameworks of reinforced concrete elements are given on Draft 98.
Maximum allowable diameters of welded rods are determined due to Table 42.

5.29. Spatial frameworks for reinforcement of linear elements (columns, piles, beams, etc.)
should be produced by contact point welding in the following manners:
) connection of plain meshes by separate rods welded to longitudinal rods of meshes
by means of welding tongs (Draft 99a) due to Item 5.28;
b) connected of bent meshes with rods (Draft 99, ), welded as its mentioned above;
c) wrapping of spiral cross reinforcement on longitudinal reinforcement (Draft 99, )
with welding of all crosses by welding tongs. Such frameworks are recommended for
reinforcement of pipes, piles, columns without consoles and other details of massproducing;
d) stringing on longitudinal rods of stirrups which are bent in advance by means of
contact point welding in points of crosses of legs with the following welding by
welding tongs of all crosses (Draft 99, ). Cross points of stirrups legs are located
staggered along the length of a framework. Such frameworks can be used for
reinforcement of columns with intermediate consoles. If there is no welding tongs so
it is possible to bind the connections of longitudinal rods and stirrups (in that case its
recommended to provide spatial rigidity of frameworks by means of welding of
additional rods, plates, etc.);
e) bending of a flat mesh up to a closed contour and welding of cross rods with a
longitudinal rod of an opposite row of an initial mesh by means of welding tongs
(Draft 99, ). This way is recommended if there are special instruments or equipment;
f) welding of four flat welding meshes by welding tongs (Draft 99, ). This way can
be used for producing of column framework when distance between angle and middle
rods is less than 75 mm, and number of longitudinal rods is no less than eight;
g) connection of two meshes by wiring bars which are perpendicular to the bending
plane and welded to the cross reinforcement of meshes (Draft 99). This way can be
used in beams which dont work as regards torsion and in columns by total quality of
longitudinal reinforcement no more than 3 percent;
h) connection of several bent and flat meshes by rods welded by means of welding
tongs (Draft 99, );
i) of two diagonally located flat meshes made by welding of longitudinal rods of both
meshes with their cross rods by means of single-point machines (Draft 99, ), at the
same time it is necessary to provide installation rigidity of a framework by means of
welding of rods, plates, etc. This way is possible to use for poles, piles and others by
quantity of reinforcement up to 1 percent.
Draft 99. Examples of structures of spatial frameworks of linear elements produced by using of contact
point welding
of two meshes and connecting rods welded to the longitudinal reinforcement of meshes; of bent
meshes and connection rods; stringing of spiral cross reinforcement on longitudinal reinforcement; of
preliminary bent and welded stirrups stringed on longitudinal rods; of a mesh bent up to a closed contour;
of four flat meshes; of two meshes and assembly rods perpendicular to the bending plane and welded
to the cross reinforcement of meshes (in beans not working for torsion and in columns by total quantity of
reinforcement no more than 3 percent); spatial framework of several bent and flat meshes and connection
rods welded by means of welding tongs; spatial frameworks by total quantity of longitudinal
reinforcement up to 1 percent in form of two diagonally located flat meshes; 1 flat mesh; 2 connection
rod; 3 bent mesh; 4 point welding

5.30. Spatial frameworks of linear elements can be produced without using of welding
point welding by means of the following methods:
) connection of meshes by brackets and by arch welding with stirrups (Draft 100, ).
In columns, beams working for torsion as well as in compressed zone of beams with
the considered in the calculation working reinforcement the length of one-sided
welding joints l must be no less than 6d (where d diameter of a stirrup), and
installation connections 3d;
b) connection of flat meshes by means of studs with bending of all crosses (Draft 100,
), at the same time it is necessary to provide installation rigidity of the framework by
welding of rods, plates and others;
c) connection of flat meshes to each other by means of arch welding of longitudinal
rods (Draft 100, ) near all points of stirrups welding. Length of joints l must be no
less than 5d (where d diameter of stirrups). Such connections can be used by
quantity of compressed reinforcement in the section no more than 3 percent;
d) of longitudinal rods and bent stirrups with binding of crosses (Draft 100, ) and
connection of rigidity elements (bound frameworks);
e) of one or several bent or flat meshes and connection rods with diameters no more
than 6 mm by bending of longitudinal rods of meshes by ends of connection rods
making a closed loop by means of a bending instrument (Draft 100, ). This method
is recommended if there are special conductors providing safe fixing of frameworks.
If there are compressed longitudinal rods so requirements to distances between
connection rods are the same as for distances for welded stirrups (see Item 5.59).
Due to great labor expenditures frameworks mentioned in the present Item can be
used only as exceptions if there are no welding tongs.
Draft 100. Examples of spatial frameworks of linear elements produced without using contact point
welding
of two flat meshes and brackets welded to the cross reinforcement of meshes; of two flat meshes
connected by means of studs by binding of all crosses; of four flat meshes; of longitudinal rods and
bent stirrups with binding of crosses; framework formed of one or several bent or flat meshes and
connecting rods by means of a bending instrument; 1 flat mesh; 2 a bracket or a stud; 3 cross rods of flat
meshes; 4 longitudinal meshes of flat rods; 5 arch welding; 6 a bending instrument; 7 a bent mesh

5.31. Spatial frameworks for reinforcement of flat elements (slabs, wall panels, etc.) should
be produced in the following manner:
) connection of flat meshes of type steps by rods welded by welding tongs (Draft
101, );
b) connection of meshes of type steps of one direction by means of the same flat
meshes of different direction and less height (Draft 101, ). Connection of crosses is
made by tongs; binding is possible in case if there are no tongs.
To provide stability during installation in both mentioned cases flat meshes of type
steps can be replaced by bent V-shaped meshes (Draft 101, ).
Spatial framework of ribbed slabs or panels is made of bent U-shaped meshes with
welding or binding to them of flat meshes of type steps.

## LOCATION OF REINFORCEMENT, ANCORAGE, BUTT-JOINTS

Protection layer of concrete
5.32. (5.4). Protection layer of concrete for main reinforcement must provide cooperation
work of reinforcement and concrete during all stages of the construction use as well
as protection against outside atmospheric, temperature and other effects.
5.33.(5.5, 5.6). Thickness of the protection layer must be as a rule no less than diameter of
a rod and no less than values mentioned in Table 43.
For prefabricated elements of heavy-weight concrete 20 and more thickness of a
protection layer can be taken 5 mm less than diameter of a rod but no less than values
given in Table 43.
For reinforced concrete slabs of heavy-weight concrete of class 20 and more
produced on factories in steel forms and protected from the above by topping
concrete thickness of the protection layer for top reinforcement must be taken equal
to 5 mm.
In one-layer structures of light and porous concrete of class 7.5 and less thickness of
the protection layer must be, mm:
- for longitudinal main reinforcement no less than 20;
- for outside wall panels (without stamped surface) no less than 25;
- for cross, constructive and distribution reinforcement no less than 15.

N o t e . For structures mentioned in positions 1-3 and for structures which are in contact with the ground values of
thickness of the protection layer are increased by 5 mm.

## For prefabricated elements of heavy-weight concrete of class 20 and more thickness

of the protection layer for longitudinal reinforcement can be taken 5 mm less than
diameter of the rod but no less than values mentioned in Table 43.
For reinforced concrete slabs of heavy-weight concrete of class 20 and more which
are produced on factories in metal forms and protected from the above by means of
topping concrete thickness of the protection layer for top reinforcement can be taken
equal to 5 mm.
In one-layer structures made of light-weight and porous concrete of class 7.5 and
less thickness of the protection layer must be, mm:
- For longitudinal main reinforcement no less than 20;
- For external wall panels (without textured layer) no less than 25;
- For cross, constructive and distribution reinforcement no less than 15.

5.34(5.10). For hollow-core elements of ring or box-shaped section distance from rods of
longitudinal reinforcement to internal surface of concrete must meet requirements of
Item 5.33.
5.35. In bending, stretched and eccentric compressed by Ml/Nl > 0.3h, except foundations,
thickness of the protection layer for stretched main reinforcement as a rule must not
be more than 50 mm. In the protection layer more than 50 mm thick it is necessary to
install constructive reinforcement in form of meshes. At the same time section area of
longitudinal reinforcement of meshes must be no less than 0.05As, pacing of cross
reinforcement must be no more than the height of the element section and conform to
instructions of Item 5.54.
5.36. For structures which work in aggressive conditions thickness of the concrete
protection layer must be taken considering requirements of SNiP 2.03.11-85.
By specification of the concrete protection layer it is also necessary to follow
instructions of SNiP 2.01.02-85.

5.37 (5.9). To install single-piece reinforcing rods, meshes, frameworks going along the
whole length or width of the element the ends of these rods must be distant from the
surface of the element if the length of the element is: up to 9 m by 10 mm, up to 12
m by 15 mm, more than 12 m by 20 mm.
Minimum distance between reinforcement rods
5.38 (5.11). Distances between reinforcement rods along the height and the width of the
element must provide cooperation work of reinforcement and concrete and must be
specified considering the convenience of installing it into a form and concreting.
By choosing of distances between rods in welded meshes as well as in flat and spatial
frameworks it is also necessary to consider technological requirements for design of
welded reinforcement details mentioned in Items 5.22, 5.23 and 5.28.

## 5.39(5.12). Clear distances between separate rods of longitudinal reinforcement and

between longitudinal rods of neighbor flat welded frameworks must be taken no less
than maximum diameter of rods, and:
) if rods hold a horizontal or inclined position during concreting: for bottom
reinforcement no less than 25 mm; for top reinforcement no less than 30 mm; by
location of bottom reinforcement less than in two rows along the height the distance
between rods in the horizontal direction (besides the rods of two bottom rows) must
be no less than 50 mm;
) if rods during concreting hold vertical position no less than 50 mm; by
systematic monitoring of screening of concrete aggregate this distance can be
decreased up to 35 mm, but at the same time it must be no less than 1.5-fold of
maximum dimension of coarse aggregate.
In elements or joints with maximum quantity of reinforcement or embedded elements
produced without using vibrating plate compactors or vibrators fixed on the
formwork it is necessary to provide in some points clear distance no less than 60 mm
for a previbrator head. Distances between such points must be no more than 500 mm.

5.40 (5.12). By space-limited conditions it is possible to locate the rods in pairs without any
gap between them or with the distance between the rods of a pair less than the
distance required for separate rods. Such pare of rods by specification of the distance
between rods (due to Item 5.39) and by determination of anchorage length (due to
Items 5.42 5.46) must be considered as a relative rod (where d1 and d2 diameters
of rods brought together, 1 clear distance between these rods, taken no more than
diameter of the least rod; Draft 102).
Draft 102. Perimeters of location of one of rods rows of bottom reinforcement (located in one or two
rows along the height) by producing of the detail on the vibrating plate compactor by d = 32 mm and d
= 16 mm
even distribution of rods; doubled location of rods by decreased distances between the rods of each
pair; the same if there is no a gap between the rods of each pair

5.41 (5.12). Clear distance between the rods of periodic profile mentioned in Items 5.39
and 5.40 are determined due to the nominal diameter without considering any jutting
out and ribs. Taking location of reinforcement in the section with space-limited
conditions considering the adjoining of other reinforcing elements and embedded
elements it is necessary to take into account diameters of rods considering jutting out
and robs, as well as possible deviations from nominal dimensions of reinforcement
rods, welded meshes and frameworks, embedded elements, shapes and location of
reinforcement and embedded elements in the section.
Anchorage of reinforcement
5.42. To make reinforcement take required forces in the considered section reinforcement
must have enough anchorage.
5.43 (5.13). Rods of periodic profile as well as plain rods used in welded frameworks and
meshes are produced without hooks. Stretched plain rods of bound frameworks and
meshes must end with hooks (see Draft 92) or loops.

5.44 (5.14). Longitudinal rods of stretched and compressed reinforcement must be brought
behind the normal to the longitudinal axis of the element section, where they are
considered with total design resistance on the length no less than lan, determined by
the following formula

R
l an (l l ) = an s + an d
(316)
Rb

but no less than lan = and, where values an an and an, as well as possible
minimum values lan are determined due to Table 44. At the same time plain
reinforcement rods must end with hooks made due to Item 5.11, or have welded cross
reinforcement along the length of embedment. To value Rb it is possible to insert
coefficients of concrete work conditions except b2.
In elements of fine concrete of group (see Item 2.1) values lan, determined by
formula (316), must be increased by 10d for stretched concrete and by 5d for
compressed concrete.
Values of relative anchorage length an = lan/d, determined by formula (316) for
different classes of concrete and reinforcement are given in Table 45.

In case when anchored rods are installed with the reserve on the section area against
the required by the calculation as regards the strength with total design resistance, the
anchorage length lan, calculated by formula (316) can be decreased by multiplying it
by the ratio between the required due to the calculation and actual section area of
reinforcement.
If due to the calculation there are cracks caused by the concrete stretching along the
anchored rods , so rods must be embedded into the compressed zone of concrete on
the length lan calculated by formula (316). At the same time height of compressed
zone can be determined due to Item 4.16.

## 5.45. If it is impossible to meet requirements of Item 5.44 so it is necessary to take special

measures for anchorage of longitudinal rods:
) special anchors in form of plates, washers, screws, angles, etc at the ends (Draft
103). In that case area of contact of anchor with concrete must correspond the
condition of concrete strength to compression (se Item 3.109), and thickness of
anchorage plate must be no less than 1/5 of the whole width (diameter) and
correspond to welding conditions (see Table 52); length of the rod embedment must
be determined by the calculation as regards chipping (see Item 3.106) and must be
taken no less than 10d;
Draft 103. Anchorage of reinforcement by means of special anchorage at the ends of special anchors
welded plate; constricted plate; button-head; button-head with a washer; rod welded to an
angle; a screw with a washer outside; screws inside

b) bending of anchored rod at 90 degrees along the arch of the circle with the clear
radius no less than 10d (1 ll/lan) [where ll length of the straight part at the
beginning of embedment (Draft 104)], corresponding to recommendations of Table
37; on the bent part there are installed additional stirrup against the unbending of
rods;
c) welding of anchoring cross rods on the length of embedment; in that case
anchorage length lan, determined due to Item 5.44, is decreased by the length

made without hooks, at the same time value lan, is not decreased.
Draft 104. Reinforcement anchorage by means of bending

5.46 (5.15). If longitudinal reinforcing rods going to the end free supports of bending
elements have no special anchors and are not welded to support embedded elements,
so it I necessary to meet the following requirements:
a) If conditions of Item 3.40 are met, the length of overlapping of stretched rods
behind the internal surface of the free support la must be no less than 5d; in welded
frameworks and welded meshes with longitudinal main reinforcement of plain rods to
each stretched longitudinal reinforcement on the length la it is necessary to weld at
least one cross (anchor) rod with diameter d 0,5d located at the distance 15 mm
by d 10 mm from the end of the framework (mesh) and 1,5d by d > 10 mm
(Draft 105, );
) If conditions of Item 3.40 are not met so the length of overlapping of stretched rods
behind the internal surface of the free support l must be no les than 10d; in case if
there area used plain rods on the length l to each longitudinal rod it is necessary to
weld no less than two cross (anchorage) rods with diameter d 0.5d, at the same
time the distance from the end anchor rod to the end of the framework (mesh) must be
no more than the mentioned in Item values (Draft 105, ).
If value ln, determined considering instructions of Item 3.44, less than 10d, the length
of overlapping of rods behind the internal surface of the support is decreased up to ln
and taken no less than 5d.

## Reinforcement rebated joints (without welding)

5.47 (5.37). Rebated joints of main reinforcement are used for connection of welded and
bound frameworks and meshes, at the same time diameter of main reinforcement
must be no more than 36 mm.
It is not recommended to locate rebated joints of rods of main reinforcement in
stretched zone of bending and eccentric stretched elements in places of total use of
reinforcement. It is not possible to use rebated joints in linear elements whose section
is fully stretched.

## 5.48 (5.38). Joints of stretched or compressed main reinforcement as well as of welded

meshes and frameworks in main direction must have the overlapping length l no less
than value ll, determined by formula (316).
ll
calculated by formula (316) for different
d
classes of reinforcement and concrete are given in Table 46.

## Values of relative overlapping length l =

If connected rods are installed with the reserve on the section area against the
required by the strength calculation as regards the maximum forces in the connection
zone, the overlapping length ll, calculated by formula (316) can be decreased by
multiplying it by the ratio between required by the calculation and actual section area
of reinforcement.

5.49 (5.39). Joints of welded meshes and frameworks as well as of stretched rods of bound
frameworks and meshes without welding must locate as a rule in stagger. At the same
time section area of main reinforcement connected in one place or at the distance less
than overlapping length l, must be no more than 50 percent of total section area of
stretched reinforcement by rods of periodic profile and no more than 25 percent by
plain rods.
Displacement of rods located in different places must be no less than 1.5ll (Draft 106,
).
Connection of separate rods, welded meshes and frameworks without stagger is
possible by constructive reinforcement (without calculation), as well as on those parts
where reinforcement is used no more than 50 percent.
In element cross section reinforcement joints must be located symmetrically.

5.50. By rebate joints connected rods must be located as close to each other as its possible;
clear distance between connected rods must be no more than 4d, that means
0 e 4d (Draft 106, a).
Draft 106. Location of rods connected with overlapping and joints
location of rod in the joint; location of joints

Neighbor rebate joints must not be located too close to each other. Clear distance
between them must be no less than 2d (d diameter of connected rods) and no less
than 30 mm (see Draft 106, ).

5.51 (5.40) Joints of welded meshes in the direction of main reinforcement of plain hotrolled steel of class -I must be made so that in each of welded in the stretched zone
meshes there were located no less than two cross rods welded to all longitudinal rods
of meshes on the length of overlapping (Draft 107).
Draft 107. Rebate joints of welded meshes in the direction of main reinforcement made of plain rods
by location of distributed rods in one plane; , the same in different planes

Length of overlapping of welded meshes with plain main reinforcement if there are
two welded anchor rods on the length of overlapping must be no less than value ll,
calculated due to Item 5.48.
The same types of joints are used for rebated joints of welded frameworks with oneside location of main rods of all types of steel.
Joints of welded meshes in the direction of main reinforcement of class -II, -III
and -III are made without cross rods within the joint in one or both connected
meshes (Draft 108, , ); at the same time the overlapping length l is taken in
compliance with item 5.48.
By welding of cross anchor rods to main rods of periodic profile of welded meshes
and frameworks (Draft 108, , ) length of overlapping determined in compliance
with Item 5.48, can be decreased by 5d for one cross anchor rod, by 8d for two
cross anchor rods.
In all cases length of overlapping must be no less than 15d in stretched concrete and
10d in compressed concrete.
If diameter of main rods connected with overlapping in the stretched zone is more
d Rs
than 10 mm and distance between rods is less than value
(where d
300 Rbt
minimum diameter of connected rods, mm), in places of joints it is necessary to
install additional cross reinforcement in form of stirrups or suspension in form of Ushaped welded meshes brought into the compressed zone. At the same time section
area of additional cross reinforcement installed within the joint must be no less than
R
0.4 As s (where , section area of all connected rods).
Rsw
By rebate joints of welded frameworks in beams on the length of the joint
independently on the diameter of main rods it is necessary to install additional
reinforcement in form of stirrups or U-shaped welded meshes. At the same time
spacing of additional cross rods within the joint must be no more than 5d (d the
least diameter of longitudinal main rods).
Draft 108. Rebate joints of welded meshes in the direction of main reinforcement of periodic profile

5.52 (5.41). Joints of welded meshes in not main direction are made with overlapping
(counting between axes of end working rods of the mesh):
by diameter of distributed reinforcement up to 4 mm by 50 mm (Draft 109, a, )
the same more than 4 mm by 100 mm, (Draft 109, , )

## By diameter of main reinforcement 16 mm and more welded meshes in not main

direction can be installed close to each other, covering the joints by means of special
covering meshes installed with overlapping to each side no less than 15d of
distributed reinforcement and no less than 100 mm (Draft 109, ).

Welded meshes in not main direction can be installed close to each other without
overlapping and without additional meshes in the following cases:
- By installation of welded strip meshes in perpendicular directions;
- By additional constructive reinforcement in the direction of distributed
reinforcement.

## REINFORCEMENT OF REINFORCED CONCRETE ELEMENTS

General positions
5.53 (5.16). Section area of longitudinal reinforcement in reinforced concrete elements
must be taken no less than the one mentioned in Table 47.
Minimum percentage of reinforcement S and S' in eccentric compressed elements
whose bearing capacity by design eccentricity is used less than by 50 percent
independently on the elasticity of elements is taken equal to 0.05.
Requirements of Table 47 are not applied on the reinforcement determined by the
calculation of elements for transportation and installation phases; in that case section
area of reinforcement is determined only by the strength calculation considering
instructions of Item 1.14.
Elements not corresponding to requirements of minimum reinforcement, belong to
concrete elements.
Requirements of the present Item are not considered by specification of the section
area of reinforcement installed along the slabs or panels contours according to the
bending calculation of the slab (panel).

5.54 (5.22). All surfaces of reinforced concrete elements near which it is installed
longitudinal reinforcement must have also cross reinforcement taking end
longitudinal rods to prevent formation of longitudinal cracks. At the same time
distance between cross rods at each surface of the element must be no more than 600
mm and no more than double width of the element surface. It is possible not to install
cross reinforcement at surfaces of thin ribs 150 mm and less which have only one
longitudinal reinforcing rod.
5.55. Correspondence of reinforcement location to its project location must be provided by
means of special measures for reinforcement fixing due to Items 5.118 5.120.

the product of the width of rectangular section or width of the rib of T-section (I-section) b by the main height of
the section ho. In elements with longitudinal reinforcement spread evenly along the section contour, as well as in
central stretched elements minimum area of all longitudinal reinforcement belongs to the total section area of
concrete and must be taken two times more than values mentioned in Table 47.

## Reinforcement of compressed elements

LONGITUDINAL REINFORCEMENT

5.56 (5.17). Diameter, mm, of longitudinal rods of compressed elements must be no more
than:
for heavy-weight and fine concrete of class less than 25 .. 40
for light-weight and porous concrete of classes:
12,5 and less 16
15 25 ..25
30 and more .40

## For high-capacity columns of heavy-weight concrete of class 20 and more and by

corresponding equipment for cutting, welding and other it is possible to use rods with
diameter more than 40 mm.
Diameter of longitudinal rods of eccentric compressed elements of solid structures
must be no less than 12 mm. In columns with the dimension of the less side of the
section 250 and more diameters of longitudinal rods should be no less than 16 mm.

## 5.57(5.18). In linear eccentric compressed elements distances between axes of rods of

longitudinal reinforcement must be taken in the direction perpendicular to the

bending plate no more than 400 mm, and in the direction of the bending plane no
more than 500 mm.
If distances between axes of main rods in the direction of the bending plane are more
than 500 mm so it is necessary to install construction reinforcement with diameter no
less than 12 mm, so that distance between longitudinal rods was no more than 400
mm.

5.58(5.19). In eccentric compressed elements whose bearing capacity is used less than by
50 percent as well in elements with elasticity lo/i < 17 (for example in column
pockets) where compressed reinforcement is not required by the calculation, and
quantity of stretched reinforcement is no more than 0.3 percent it is possible not to
install longitudinal and cross reinforcement which is required due to Items 5.54, 5.57,
5.59 and 5.60 along the surfaces parallel to the bending plane. At the same time
reinforcement along the surfaces perpendicular to the bending plane is made by
welded frameworks and meshes with the concrete protection layer no less than 50
mm and no less than two diameters of longitudinal reinforcement.
CROSS REINFORCEMENT

## 5.59 (5.22). In eccentric compressed linear elements by considered in the calculation

compressed longitudinal reinforcement to prevent its uplift the stirrups must be
installed at distances no more than 500 mm and no more than: by bound frameworks
15d, by welded frameworks 20d (d minimum diameter of compressed
longitudinal rods).
Distances between stirrups of eccentric compressed elements in points of rebate joints
of main reinforcement without welding must be no more than 10d.
If congestion of the element by required by the calculation compressed longitudinal
reinforcement S' is more than 1.5 percent so stirrups must be installed at distances no
more than 10d and no more than 300 mm.
Cross reinforcement structure mutt provide fixing of compressed rods to prevent their
lateral uplift in any direction.
During control how requirements of the present item are met longitudinal compressed
rods which are not considered by the calculation must not be taken into account, if
diameter of these rods is no more than 12 mm and no more than a half of cracks of
concrete protection layer.
Note. By high-strength compressed reinforcement of class A-IV and more distances between stirrups
must be no more than 400 mm and for bound frameworks no more than 12d, for welded frameworks
no more than 15d.

## 5.60 (5.23). By reinforcement of eccentric compressed elements by flat welded frameworks

two end frameworks (located at opposite surfaces) must be connected to each other to
form a spatial framework. For that at the surfaces of elements normal to the plane of
frameworks it is necessary to install cross rods welded by contact point welding to
angle longitudinal rods of frameworks, or studs connecting these rods at the same
distances like cross rods of plane frameworks.

If end plane frameworks have intermediate longitudinal rods so these rods must be
connected with longitudinal rods located at opposite surfaces by means of studs, no
less than next nearest and no less than each 400 mm along the width of the element
surface. It is possible not to install studs if the width of the present surface of the
element is no more than 500 mm and number of longitudinal rods at this surface is
any more than four. It is also possible not to install studs at intermediate rods which
are distant from the angle ones no farther than 15dw, independently on the width of
the element and number of rods.
By larger dimensions of the element section it is recommended to install intermediate
flat welded meshes (Draft 110, a).
Draft 110. Structure of spatial frameworks in compressed elements
welded; bound; 1 connection rods; 2 plane welded frameworks; 3 stirrup; 4 intermediate plane
framework; 5 a stirrup

## Structure of bound stirrups in eccentric compressed elements must be so that

longitudinal rods (at leas every second one) were located at the bending point of
stirrups, and this bendings at the distance no more than 400 mm along the width of
the element surface. By width of the surface no more than 400 mm and number of
longitudinal rods at this surface no more than four it is possible to bind all
longitudinal rods by one stirrup (Draft 110, ). Independently on the width of the
surface and number of rods it is possible not to install intermediate rods in stirrups
bendings if these rods are distant from angle rods no more than 15dw. At the ends of
bound stirrups it is necessary to install hooks.

5.61 (5.25). Diameter of stirrups of eccentric compressed elements must be taken no less
than 0.25d (d maximum diameter of longitudinal rods), and in bound frameworks
no less than 5 mm.
Reinforcement of bending elements
LONGITUDINAL REINFORCEMENT

5.62 (5.20). Beams and ribs 150 and less mm wide (Draft 111), working for bending can be
reinforced by one flat vertical framework, and more than 150 wide ones and by great
loads they must be reinforced by several vertical meshes (frameworks).
In beams more than 150 mm wide number of longitudinal main rods brought behind
the surface of the support must be no less than two. In ribs of prefabricated panels,
decks, multiribbed plates and other 150 and less mm wide it is possible to bring one
longitudinal rod to the support.
Draft 111. Reinforcement of beams by plain welded meshes

In slabs more than 350 mm wide distance between axes of main rods can be
decreased up to 600 mm.
In solid plates distance between rods brought to the surface of the support must be no
more than 400 mm, at the same time section area of these rods per 1 m of the slab
width must be no less than 1/3 of the section area of rods in the span, determined by
the calculation due to maximum bending moment.
In hollow-core decks distance between axes of main rods can be decreased due to
location of hollows in the section, but no more than up to 2h.
By reinforcement of continuous slabs by means of welded roll meshes it is possible
near intermediate rods to move all bottom rods to the top zone.
Continuous slabs no more than 80 mm thick can be reinforced by means of single flat
meshes without bending.

5.65. If main reinforcement of the slab goes parallel to the rib so perpendicular to it its
necessary to install additional reinforcement with the section no less than 1/3 of
maximum section of main reinforcement of the slab in the span and bring it in the
slab to each side of the rib at the length no less than 1/4 of design span of the slab.
If main reinforcement of the slab above the support goes perpendicular to the rib, it is
necessary to break it no closer than at the distance 1/4 of design span of the slab from
the surface of the rib (. 113).
Draft 113. Reinforcement of support parts of slabs monolithically connected with beams
1 main span reinforcement of the slab; 2 main reinforcement of the slab above the span; l design span of
the slab

In beam slabs section area of distributed reinforcement per width unit of the slab must
be no less than 2 percent of the section area of main reinforcement per width unit of
the slab in the point of maximum bending moment.
Distance between rods of distributed reinforcement of beam slabs must be no more
than 600 mm.
CROSS AND DIAGONAL REINFORCEMENT

5.66 (5.26). In beam structures more than 150 mm high, as well as in hollow-core slabs (or
similar multi-ribbed structures) more than 300 mm high it is necessary to install cross
reinforcement according to instructions of Item 5.69.

In solid plates independently on the height, in hollow-core plates (or similar multiribbed structures) 300 and less mm high and in beam structures 150 and less mm high
it is possible not to install cross reinforcement, at the same time the requirements of
the calculation due to Items 3.40 and 3.41 must be met.

5.67. To prevent lateral uplift of rods if compressed zone it is necessary to install cross
reinforcement in compliance with requirements of Item 5.59.

The ratio between diameters of cross and longitudinal rods in welded meshes
determined due to the welding conditions is taken in conformity with positions 1 and
2 of Table 38.

5.69 (5.27). Cross reinforcement in beams and slabs structures mentioned in Item 5.66 is
installed in support parts by distributed loads equal to 1/4 of the span, and by point

mm.
For ribbed plates in the middle part of the span if requirements of Item 3.40 are met
so mentioned above instructions are not to be taken into account.

## 5.70. To provide anchorage of cross reinforcement of bending elements the connections of

longitudinal and cross rods in welded frameworks must be made in compliance with
requirements of positions 1 and 2 of Table 38. In bound frameworks the stirrups must
be designed so that at the places of their bending there were longitudinal rods (Draft
114). At the same time in welded as well as in bound frameworks diameter of
longitudinal rods must be no less than 0.8 of diameter of cross rods.
By bound reinforcement in intermediate (middle) beams of T-section monolithically
connected with a slab, its recommended to install open stirrups.
Draft 114. Structure of stirrups of bound frameworks of beams

## 5.71. Bent rods of reinforcement must be installed in bending elements by their

reinforcement by bound frameworks. The rods must be bent along the arch with
radius no less than 10d (Draft 115). In bending elements at the ends of bent rods it is
necessary to make straight parts no less than 0,8lan long taken according to
instructions of Item 5.44, but no less than 20d in stretched zone and 10d in
compressed zone.

## Straight parts of bent pain rods must end with hooks.

located no closer than that normal section where bend is not required by the
calculation (Draft 116).

5.72. Angle of slope of bendings to the longitudinal axis of the element must be taken as a
rule 45 degrees. In beams more than 800 mm high and in beams-walls it is possible to
increase angle of slope of bendings up to 60 degrees and in low beams and slabs to
decrease up to 30 degrees.
Rods with bends should be located at the distance no less than 2d from lateral
surfaces of the element (d diameter of bent rod). It is not recommended to bend the
rods located directly at lateral surfaces.
Rods bends should be located symmetrically relating to longitudinal axis of the beam.
Use of bends in form of floating" rods (Draft 117) is not allowable.
Draft 117. Floating" rod

## Reinforcement of elements working for bending for torsion

5.73 (5.31). In elements working for bending with torsion bound stirrups must be closed
with reliable anchorage at the ends, and for welded frameworks all lateral rods of
both directions must be welded to angle longitudinal rods and form closed circle.
Spatial frameworks should be designed considering requirements of Items 5.28,

Distances between cross rods located at the surfaces parallel to the bending plane
must correspond to requirements of Item 5.69. Distances between cross rods located
at the surfaces normal to the bending plane must be no more than the width of the

Requirements of the present Item are applied to end beams to which secondary beam
or slabs join only from one side, as well as middle beams to which design loads
transferred from adjoining to them spans are different and differ more than 2 times.

## Special cases of reinforcement

REINFORCEMENT OF DETAILS WITH HOLES

5.74 (5.50). Big holes in reinforced concrete slabs, panels and others must have additional
reinforcement with the section no less than section of main reinforcement (of the
same direction), with is required by the calculation as for a solid one. Replacing
reinforcement must be brought behind the edges of a hole at the length no less than
overlapping length ll, determined due to Item 5.48.
Holes in sides of elements must have round form and edges of holes must be

Anchorage of the mentioned above reinforcement must correspond to requirements of
Item 5.70.
DESIGN OF SHORT CONSOLES

5.76. Short consoles can be of constant and variable height with enlargement to the
embedment place.
Consoles of variable height should be designed by great loads.

## 5.77 (5.30). Cross reinforcement of cross consoles should be made:

- by h 2.5 by stirrups inclined at the angle 45 degrees (Draft 118, );
- by h > 2.5 by horizontal stirrups (Draft 118, ).
Draft 118. Short consoles of columns with stirrups
inclined; horizontal

In all cases spacing of stirrups must be no more than h/4 and no more than 150 mm (h
height of a console). By Limited height of the console it is possible to use hard
reinforcement (Draft 119).
Draft 119. Short console with hard reinforcement

CONFINEMENT REINFORCEMENT

5.78 (5.24). Confinement reinforcement prevents cross expansion of concrete, due to that
concrete strength by longitudinal compression is increased.
Confinement reinforcement is used in form of cross welded meshes (Draft 120) or
spirals (rings) (Draft 121).

## Draft 120. Confinement reinforcement in form of a pack of cross welded meshes

Draft 121. Spiral confinement reinforcement of reinforced concrete elements

For confinement reinforcement it is necessary to use reinforcement steel of classes I, -II, -III and A-IIIC with diameter no more than 14 mm and steel of class -I.
Confinement reinforcement can be used along the whole length of compressed
elements (columns, piles) or as local reinforcement of column joints, at points of
impact on a pile and others. Besides confinement reinforcement in form of meshes is
used by local compression.
Meshes and spirals (rings) in columns and piles must surround all main longitudinal
reinforcement.

5.79 (5.24). Meshes of confinement reinforcement can be welded of intersectional rods (see
Draft 120) or in form of combs. In both cases it is necessary to provide cooperation
work of mesh rods and concrete.
By using of confinement reinforcement of welded meshes it is necessary to meet the
following conditions:
) section areas of mesh rods per a length unit in one and another direction must not
differ more than by 1.5 times;
b) meshes spacing (distance between axes of rods in one direction) must be taken
no less than 60 mm, but no more than 1/3 of the least side of the element section and
no more than 150 mm;
c) clear dimensions of meshes cells must be taken no less than 45 mm, but no more
than 1/4 of the least side of the element section and no more than 100 mm.
The first welded mesh is located at the distance 15 20 mm from the loaded surface
of the element.
Combs used for confinement reinforcement must be inverted with the overlapping
length corresponding to the length given in Item 5.48, and must be made of
reinforcement of periodic profile.

## 5.80 (5.24). By using of confinement reinforcement in form of spirals or rings it is

necessary to meet the following conditions (see Draft 121):
) spirals and rings must be round in plan;
) spacing of spiral winding or spacing of rings must be no less than 40 mm, but no
more than 1/5 of element diameter and no more than 100 mm;
) diameter of spiral winding or of rings must be no less than 200 mm.
PREFABRICATED FEATURES STRUCTURES
General positions
5.81. Prefabricated reinforced concrete elements must meet the requirements of
produceability: they must have simple shapes (considering slopes in case of
necessity), simple reinforcement and little manufacturing content; allow

## mechanization and automatization of production, fast production, as well as

transportable and convenient for installation.
Reinforced concrete elements must be designed as a rule for production in forms
without following concreting or assembly of separate items before installation.

## 5.82. Dimensions and shapes of prefabricated elements must conform to requirements of

Items 5.5 5.8.
5.83. Prefabricated reinforced concrete elements should be designed so that it was possible
to produce them in solid forms.
If production of an element in a solid form is impossible so it is recommended to
design as big part as its possible as a solid one.

5.84. Ribs in sides of beams should be designed only by great point loads or if it is
necessary to provide the stability of the side.
5.85. Requirements for accuracy of manufacturing of reinforced concrete elements must be
specified according to the analysis of their adjoining type with other elements. So, for
example, by concreting of joints some deviations from nominal dimensions are
allowable as they are to be balanced during concreting.
Joints of elements of prefabricated structures
5.86 (5.42). By joins of reinforced concrete elements of prefabricated structures the forces
from one element to another are transferred through the abutting main reinforcement,
steel embedded elements, filled by concrete or mortar joints, concrete keys or (for
compressed elements) directly through concrete surfaces of adjoining elements.
5.87 (5.43). Fixed joints of prefabricated structures must be monolithed by filling of joints
between elements by concrete. If during manufacturing of elements the surfaces are
adjusted to each other (for example by using of the butt end of one of the elements is
used as a framework for the butt end of the other element), so by transferring of only
compression force through the joint it is possible to make dry joints.
5.88. It is necessary to make such constructive decisions which provide simplicity of
manufacturing of joint details (embedded elements, meshes and other), their
assembly, fixing in the form, forming of the detail as well as installation and
connecting of reinforced concrete prefabricated elements.
5.89 (5.44). Joints of elements which take stretching forces must be made:
) by welding of steel embedded elements;
b) welding of reinforcement connecting bars;
c) agglutination of elements by constructive polymer mortars using connection derails
of rod reinforcement;
d) monolithing of connecting rods with overlapping.

## During design of joints of prefabricated structures elements it is necessary to design

such connections of embedded elements which prevent unbending of their parts as
well as concrete chipping.

5.90. Fixed joints of prefabricated columns should be made by means of tub welding of
connecting rods located in special cuttings with the following monolithing of these
cuttings.
In such joints between butt ends of joined columns it is necessary to design a
centralize filler in form of a steel plate anchored in concrete or welded to the spread
plate of the embedded element (see Draft 81; Draft 122). Dimensions of a centralize
filler are taken no more than 1/3 of the corresponding dimension of the element
section.
Form and dimensions of cuttings are determined by means of number of joined rods
and their diameters (see Draft 122). Total height of cuttings is taken no less than 30
cm and no less than 8d (d diameter of connecting rods); depth of a cutting allows to
install prefabricated rods and to exercise a non-destructive ultrasonic control.
Draft 122. Fixed joint of prefabricated columns by tub welding of connecting rods
by four angle connecting rods; by connecting rods located along the section perimeter; 1 connecting
rods; 2 concrete for monolithing of cuttings; 3 centralize filler (meshes of confinement reinforcement in
the sections are not shown)

5.91. Joints of prefabricated column with eccentricities of longitudinal forces during the
use stage less than 0,17h can be made with adjoining of butt-ends of columns through
the cement layer of polymer mortal layer with break of longitudinal enforcement
(contact joints). Different types of contact joints are given on Draft 123.
In the joint of the 1st type a centering pin is jutting out from the butt-end of the
column; the centering pin in form of a reinforcing rod with diameter 32 36 mm is
put into a chase with liquid mortar located in the center of a butt-end of the bottom
column. To form a joint filled with mortar at the bottom butt-end it is installed a
centering filler with a hole for a pin.
. 123. Types of contact joints of prefabricated columns
1 centering pin; 2 centering filler; 3 mortar; 4 welding; 5 tack weld; 6 rods connected with a plate
by welding; 7 intermediate rods with tack weld; 8 end plates with stamped holes (cross reinforcement is
not shown)

In the joint of the 2nd type the top butt-end has a concrete lug in the center, and the
bottom one a chase corresponding to a lug of round or rectangular form in plan.
Rods in connections of the 1st and the 2nd type must be distant from the concrete
surface no more than by 10 mm.
The 3rd type joint with steel plates at the butt-ends of columns connected by
welding with longitudinal reinforcement rods in stamped or in counter-bores or by
means of buttoning plates. Number of rods connected in such manner is determined
by the calculation of assembly rods and is taken no less than for (angle) rods. The rest
of rods (intermediate) are installed by flat butt-ends fixedly to the plates and are

welded to them by arch welding. After installation of columns end plates are
connected by long welded joints along the perimeter or angles of the section.
Thickness of end plates is taken no less than: by connection of reinforcement with the
plate in stamped holes or fixedly 0.25da and 6 mm; in counter bores 0.35da and 12
mm (da diameter of longitudinal rods required by the calculation). If in the column
shaft there is installed considered in the calculation confinement reinforcement so
thickness of the plates should be increased by 2 mm.

5.92 (5.24). At the end parts of connected plates, if special reinforcement is not provided
(iron ring, embedded elements), it is necessary to install confinement reinforcement
meshes in accordance with the instructions of Items 5.78 and 5.79 no less than four
meshes on the length (counting from the butt-end of the element) no less than 20d, if
longitudinal reinforcement is made of plain rods, and no less than 10d of periodic
profile rods (d maximum diameter of longitudinal reinforcement).
Saturation factor of confinement reinforcement xy (see Item 3.57) is taken no less
than 0.0125.
For joints mentioned in Item 5.90, in case of necessity monolithing concrete in zone
of cuttings can be reinforced by welded meshes. In zone of cuttings there are installed
one or two closed stirrups which bend connection rods.
By contact joints of the 3rd type (see Item 5.91) in end parts of joined columns it is
possible not to install meshes of confinement reinforcement, if they are not designed
in the columns. But at the length 10da of end part it is necessary to install cross
reinforcement (stirrups, meshes) of the same structure like in the column shaft taking
its spacing no more than: 0.25 of maximum section dimension; 0.6 of spacing of cross
reinforcement in the column shaft; 80 mm.

5.93. Dimensions of welded joints made by produce of steel embedded elements and by
their connection during installation in the joints of prefabricated elements must be
calculated in compliance with the requirements of SNiP II-23-81. Alternative of
welding method of connecting rods and constructive elements of these connections
should be provided due to Items 5.15 5.17, as well as due to state standards and
normative documents for welding technologies.
During design of welded joints and embedded elements it is necessary to use welding
methods which dont cause warping of steel details joints.

5.94 (5.51). During design of prefabricated floors elements it is necessary to design the
joints between them which are filled with concrete. Width of joints is taken due to
condition of their qualitative filling and must be taken no less than 20 mm for
elements with the section height 250 mm and no less than 30 mm for elements with
great height. At the same time it is necessary to provide the possibility to arrange to
joined reinforcement or embedded elements and to provide their qualitative welding.
Class of concrete for filling of joints which transfer design forces is taken in
compliance with Item 2.4.

## For concreting of difficult-to-access or difficult-to-control points of the joint it is

recommended their filling by concrete or mortar under pressure as well as use of
expanding cement.

Slinging devices
5.95. During design of prefabricated reinforced concrete elements it is necessary to provide
comfortable methods of their holding by means of load-handling devices during
assembly works.
Methods and points of handling must be chosen considering manufacturing and
installation technologies as well as constructive features.
The detail must be checked by the calculations.

5.96. In concrete and reinforced concrete details it is necessary to design devices for their
strapping: strapping holes (including the ones for prefabricated holes), slots etc or
permanent steel strapping loops which must be produced of hot-rolled steel due to
Item 2.18.
It is recommended to design handling of details without using any devices which are
made of steel by means of making holes, slots, deepenings and others (Draft 124).

5.97. During design of details with strapping loops it is necessary to use common loops. If
there are no common loops with required characteristics so it is recommended to
design the loops of types shown on Draft 125.
Minimum parameters for loops with straight and bent lags of types 1.1 and 2.1
(see Draft 125) are given in Table 48.
Draft 124. Examples of stripping devices without loops
by stripping of a block; stripping holes in a column; combination of two different stripping devices
in one detail; 1 cargo slings; 2 hole cutout; 3 holes; 4 loops for handling during taking out of the form

a detail per a loop. Weight of the detail is determined due to instructions of Item 2.13.
By lifting of flat details by four loops weight of the detail is considered to be
distributed for three loops.

Notes: 1. Values m correspond to the angle between straps and a horizontal line equal to 45 degrees and more;
less angle of slope is not allowable. If detail is slinged by means of vertical slings so it is possible to decrease
weight of the detail per a loop by 1.4 times.
2. By diameter of the loop rod from 8 to 22 mm it is possible to decrease the mentioned values by 25 percent
by special justification.

By lifting by three and more loops located on one butt-end of the detail (for example
on the wall panel) weight of the detail is taken as distributed only on two loops, thats
why in that case it is not recommended to install more than two loops.
By using of devices (balanced lifting frame) providing self-balancing of forces among
slings it is possible to distribute the weight of the detail among loops in accordance
with the structure of the device.

5.99. The height of the lug eye he (see Draft 125) corresponding to the dimensions of
pulling hooks of loading slings must be taken equal to, mm:

By location of slinging loops in standard deepenings (Draft 126, ) value hb can be
counted from the top surface of a concrete element.
In all cases value ls should be taken no less than 200 mm.
For loops made of reinforcement steel 25-I and 28-III and more values ls and

elements (wall panels of heavy-weight concrete) no more than 220 mm thick.

## Branches of a loop of steel of class -I, as well as straight (without bendings)

branches of loops of steel of class -II should end with hooks.
In case of necessity it is possible to locate branches at the angle one to another no
more than 45 degrees.
For details of light-weight concrete sling loops should be reinforced by a cross rod
located at the level of hooks of loop branches.
Distance between a lateral surface of the tail of the loop hook and the surface of the
detail measured in the plain of the hook should be taken no less than 4d (Draft 125a).
In case if its impossible to make the embedment of loop ends at the required length,
anchorage of the loop must be made by different methods, for example by welding to
embedded elements etc. safety of accepted anchorage should be confirmed by
calculations or tests.
Draft 126. Dimensions of holes for embedded location of sling loops eyes
a closed hole: open hole (at the edge of the detail) by diameter of the loop rod 6 16 mm: R1=125 mm,
= 30 mm, b1 = 50 mm, l1=25 mm, l2=30 mm; by diameter of the loop rod 18 22 mm: R1=150 mm, =40
mm, b1=65 mm, l1=30 mm, l2=30 mm;

5.100. It is possible to locate sling loops in the holes so that their eyes were located below
the surface of a concrete or reinforced concrete detail. This location is recommended
by mechanized finishing of the concrete surface, when the loops prevent such
finishing. Holes for loops can be closed (see Draft 126, a) or open (Draft 126, ). In
the last case they dont collect water which can freeze, as well as conditions of fixing
of loops are better.
EMBEDDED ELEMENTS
General positions
5.101. During design of reinforced concrete structures it is recommended to use mainly
unified welded, stamped and stamped-welded embedded elements.
5.102. Embedded elements must be anchored in concrete.

Welded embedded elements usually consist of plates (section of strip steel, angle or
shaped steel) with welded to them normal or inclined anchors (Draft 127).
Stamped embedded elements consist of parts which perform a function of plates and
strip anchors which have stamped jutting for reinforcement of anchorage (Draft 128,
, ).
If during manufacturing of embedded elements there are used pressing and welding,
so such details are called stamped-welded ones (Draft 128, , ). Constructive
requirements for stamped embedded elements and stamped-welded details made with
welding of anchor rods to tamped embedded elements are given in
Recommendations for design of steel embedded elements of reinforced concrete
structures " (oscow., Stroyizdat, 1984).
Embedded elements can also have supports for work against shear (see Draft 127, ),
devices for fixing to forms, bolts for connection of prefabricated elements and other.

## 5.103. For mechanized finishing of the reinforced concrete element surface it is

recommended to embed the plates into concrete at the depth no less than for 5 mm.
In the plates of embedded elements located on the top surface of the element (by
concreting) with the least dimension more than 250 mm and in the plates with cover
the whole or the larger part of the concreted element it is necessary to make the
wholes for air out during laying and compaction of concrete and for concrete work
quality control.

5.104. To provide project location of the embedded element in the detail it is necessary to
fix it by temporary fixing devices to elements of the form before concreting.
Examples of such fixing are given in Recommendations mentioned in Item 5.102. By
location of the detail on the open during concrete works surface of the element when
its fixing to the form is not expedient the detail can be welded to the reinforcement.
Draft 127. Examples of structures of welded embedded elements

angle steel; 1 normal anchors (T-welded); 2 inclined anchors (welded with overlapping); 3 support
working in two directions; 4 the same in one direction; 5 holes for fixing
Draft 128. Examples of embedded elements structures
, stamped; , stamped-welded

5.105. To provide the working life of embedded elements it is necessary to design their
anticorrosive protection. Way of protection is chosen according to the corrosive
power in compliance with requirements of SNiP 2.03.11-85 and Guidelines to it, as
well as Recommendations mentioned in Item 5.102.
5.106. In main rods steel consumption for embedded elements must be calculated
separately for reinforcement and connection details. At the same time into the
embedded elements weight it is included also weight of anchors and other welded
rods considering technological allowance required for welding (washing and
settlement into the melt, anchorages embedment and other).

Plates
5.107. Choosing of steel grade for plates of embedded elements is made due to Table 13.
5.108. Thickness of plates or other external details of embedded elements is determined
due to Item 3.105, as well as due to technological requirements for welding
mentioned in Items 5.116 and 5.117 but no less than 4 mm. Besides by welding of
steel elements to the plate which has contact with concrete its thickness must be taken
according to the height of assembly angle joint no less than values mentioned in
Table 51.
5.109. By dimensions of the plate similar to dimensions of the reinforced concrete element
it is necessary to consider their positive deviation limit and to provide the possibility
of free installation of embedded element by negative deviations of form dimensions.

Anchors
5.110. Anchors of embedded elements must be designed mainly of classes of reinforcement
-II and -III with diameter 8 25 mm. It is possible to use reinforcement steel AIIIC for anchors welded with overlapping.
Steel grade for anchor rods must be taken in compliance with Table 12. Anchors of
plain reinforcement of reinforcement of class -I can be used only if they are
reinforced by plates or button-heads at the ends. For constructive details it is possible
to use anchors of the same reinforcement with hooks at the ends.

5.111. Number of normal anchor rods in the embedded element is taken no less than four,
but if three are no tearing forces and bending moments it can be decreased up to two.
By action of tearing forces and bending moments if these forces are applied in the
plane of anchors location it is possible to use embedded elements with two normal
anchor rods.
Number of inclined anchors must be taken no less than two. At the same time it is
necessary to design minimum one normal anchor. If there are no less than four
normal anchors in the embedded element so it is possible to take one inclined anchor.
For anchor rods welded with overlapping their angle of inclination towards the shear
force must be taken equal to 15 to 30 degrees.

Distances between anchor axes required by the calculation must be no less than
values shown on Draft 129.
Draft 129. Minimum distances between anchors and from anchors to concrete edge
By anchors made of steel of classes -I and -II: a = 4dd, b = 6dd, = 3dd, = 3dd; the same of class -III:
a = 5dd, b = 7dd, = 3.5dd, = 4dd (dd anchor diameter required by the calculation)

5.112 (5.14). Length of anchor rods of embedded elements by stretching forces applied to
them must be no less than value l, determined due to instructions of Item 5.44. At
the same time length of stretched anchor rods embedded into the stretched concrete or
in compressed concrete by bc/Rb > 0.75 or bc/Rb < 0.25 must be determined by
formula (316), using values w, and due to position 1 of Table 44. In other
cases the mentioned values should be taken due to position 16 of Table 44 (here bc
compression force in concrete acting perpendicular to the anchor rod and determined
as for elastic material by the safety factor f = 1.0
If part of the anchor with the length is located in the zone with the stress in concrete
corresponding to the condition 0.75 bc/Rb 0.25, so is determined due to the
following formula
0.7(l a a ) + 0.5d
an =
,
(317)
la
where la actual anchor length. Other parameters of table 44 are determined in the
same manner.
By acting of stretching and shear forces on normal anchor rods the right part of
formula (316) is multiplied by the coefficient 3, equal to:
0 .3
3 =
+ 0 .7 ,
(318)
1 + Qan1 / N an1
where Qan1, Nan1 stretching and shearing forces in the anchor rod determined due to
Item 3.101.
At the same time value lan must be no less than minimum value lan due to Item 5.44.
For normal anchors the length is calculated from the internal surface of plates, for
inclined ones from the beginning of bending or butt-end edge of the plate.

## 5.113 (5.45). Length of anchors of embedded elements by action of stretching forces on

them (see Item 3.101) can be decreased if anchor plates are welded to the ends of rods
or if there are hot-made button-heads with diameter no less than 2d for rods of
reinforcement class -I and -II and no less than 3d for rods of reinforcement class
-III. In such cases length of the anchor rod is determined due to the calculation of
chipping and compression of concrete (see Items 3.106, 3.107 and 3.109) and are
taken no less than 10d (d anchor diameter).
Anchor plates must meet the requirements of Item 5.45 .
In case if crack formation in concrete along anchors is possible (bt > Rbt) within their
design length ends of anchors must be reinforced by welded plates or button-heads.
At the same time ends of anchors must be located in compressed zone of elements. In

## eccentric stretched elements if longitudinal force is located between reinforcement S

and S' ends of anchors must be located at the opposite surface of the element and
brought behind the longitudinal reinforcement.

5.114. By acting of pressing force on the embedded element a part of the shear force can be
transferred to concrete through the supports of strip steel or of reinforcement lugs (see
Draft 127, ). Height of supports should be taken no less than 10 and no more than 40
mm by the ration between the thickness of the support and its height no less than 0.5.
Distance between supports in the direction of the shear force is taken no less than six
heights of the support.
5.115. Embedded elements in light-weight concrete of classes 5 10 should be designed
so that tearing forces were taken by normal anchors and shearing forces by inclined
ones. Anchors of embedded elements in such cases should be taken of reinforcement
steel of periodic profile of class -II or plain reinforcement steel of class -I with
diameter no more than 16 mm. At the ends of anchors it is necessary to provide
reinforcement in form of button-heads and welded plates. Length of anchor rods and
dimensions of strengthening are determined due to the calculation of chipping and
compression of concrete (see Items 3.106, 3.107 and 3.109), at the same time length
of concrete is taken no less than 15d, and diameter of a button-head no less than 3d.
Welded connections of embedded elements
5.116. Welded connections of anchors with plates should be designed due to Table 52.
During manufacturing of T-connections of anchors with flat elements there are used:
flux arch welding (position 1 3); contact welding (positions 4, 5); mechanized
welding in carbonic acid CO2 (positions 6, 7); tub one-electrode welding in
prefabricated forms (position 9); manual arch welding with bead joints (position 8).
All mentioned processes can be used by welding of embedded elements of type open
table" (see Draft 127, , ), and welding methods due to positions 6-9 also for
manufacturing of embedded elements of type closed table" (see Draft 127, ).
5.117. Welded overlapped connections of anchors and reinforcing rods with plates should
be designed according to the instructions of Table 53. It is recommended to use
mainly contact projection welding (positions 2 and 3 of Table 53).
Welded joints by welding of flat elements (plate, angles and other) should be made
due to SNiP II-23-81.
FIXING OF REINFORCEMENT

5.118 (5.49). Location of reinforcement must correspond to its project location and this
provides by means of fixing means.
Fixing of reinforcement is performed by means of:
) one-use devices which stay in concrete;
) prefabricated devices which are taken out of concrete before and after its
hardening:
) special details fixed to main surface of a form or formwork which not prevent
removing of reinforced concrete element out of the form.

## 5.119. It is recommended to use the following one-use devices:

) to provide required thickness of concrete protection layer due to Draft 130;
) to provide required distance between separate reinforcement details or rods due
to Draft 131;
) to meet requirements mentioned in sub-items " and ", - due to Draft 132.
Kind of a fixing devise to provide thickness of concrete protection layer at external
surfaces of elements should be chosen due to requirements of Table 54. Its not
allowed to use off-cuts of reinforcing rods as fixing devices.
In stretched zone of concrete elements used in conditions of corrosive environment it
is not possible to install plastic fillers under rods of main reinforcement or close to
them under rods of distributed reinforcement. In such elements there should be used
mainly fillers of dense cement-sand mortar, concrete or asbestos cement.

5.120. In case of use of one-use fixing devices it in compliance with requirements of Table
54 is necessary to show which of these devices are allowable in the given element.
Thickness of protection layer of concrete in the point of installation of the fillerholder should be taken divisible into 5 mm.

changing of loads etc.
If in mentioned cases settlement joints are not provided so the foundations must have
enough strength and rigidity preventing damage of located above structures or they
