Example 1 (Reinforced Concrete Building)

(MODELLING)

Using the concept of auto-generation method of STAAD. Pro V8i


software, sketch and construct the idealization numbering of joints and
members concrete structure shown below (All dimensions unit in meters).
Edit the commands for the modeling of the reinforced concrete structure
shown below:
( x- 3bays @ 4m, y- 2story @ 3m, z- 3bay @ 5m)
Note: Ec = 3200 kip/in2, Density = 2500kg/m3 circular column section
(Radius = 20cm), interior beam size (T-section) [flange bf = 80cm,
tf=15cm], [web H = 60cm, bw = 30cm], edge beam size (30*50), roof and
floor slab thickness = 15cm. external and internal support (fixed), corner
support hinge.

Example 1 (LOADING, ANALYSIS and DESIGN)

Using STAAD-Pro V8i software, analysis and design concrete structure


shown according to load combination for the cases:

1. Self-weight load with factor of safety (F.S. =1.2)


2. External loads shown in figure with (F.S.=1.6)
3. External distributed load (4kN/m2) for floor slab and (5kN/m2) for
roof slab with (F.S.=1.4)

2. f'c = 25 MPa for Columns
3. f'c = 20 MPa for Slabs
4. fy = 400 MPa for steel bars reinforcement
