Guidelines for the report

Each student must submit their own report following the formatting requirements below:

A4 page size.

12 point black Times New Roman or Calibri font.

Single line spacing.

2.54 cm margins.

Line space after each paragraph.

Left justified.

Figures must have descriptive captions.

References should follow IEEE referencing style.

Any means of plagiarism will not be tolerated.

The body of the report including titles and captions should not exceed 1000 words. This limit

excludes the front cover, contents page, figures, tables, references list and appendices. To

present and discuss the required content you will need to use precise, concise descriptions

and discussions. It is likely that you will need to critically edit your initial draft in order to

achieve the word limit. This reflects requirements of technical writing by professional

engineers.

Beams are common members in reinforced concrete structures. Beams carry loads primarily

by internal moments and shears. Therefore, a beam can fail in two failure modes, flexural and

shear. In the design of a reinforced concrete member, flexure is usually considered first,

leading to the size of the section and the arrangement of reinforcement to provide the

necessary resistance for moments. Beams are then designed for shear.

During this assignment you are expected to differentiate the two main failure modes in the

beam and the reasons for those failures. In order to differentiate clearly two beams one with

shear links and other one without shear links will be tested.

1. Learning outcome

Identify the failure mechanisms associated with reinforced concrete (RC) elements in

bending by:

Testing two RC beams under specified loading conditions and recording all relevant

results

Analyzing the results obtained during testing and formulating conclusions.

2. Technical information

Physical conditions

Cover 20mm

The span between supports is 1800 mm.

Loading arrangement

w/2 w/2

Materials

Reinforcement: Bottom r/f 12mm tor steel bars (fy=460N/mm2) and top r/f 10mm

mild steel bars (fy=250N/mm2)

Shear links: 6mm mild steel bars at

i) 75 mm spacing for the beam with shear links

ii) At ends and center (3 Nos) for the beam without shear links

3. Laboratory methodology

Casting the beam

Take care to ensure the specified cover is achieved. This can be done using spacers.

Perform a mix design and hence find the materials required.

Prepare the mix and measure workability.

Cast two beams and 6 cubes

The concrete must be compacted in the mould using the vibrating poker.

From each batch cast three cubes, one will be air cured and two will be water cured.

Find the actual cover that has been provided using the cover meter.

Place the beams in the Amsler testing machine with an effective span of 1800mm

(simply supported and load at third points by two concentrated loads).

Load the beam in increments of 0.2 Metric Tons and measure the deflection at each step

using dial gauges, at mid span.

Observe the crack pattern and mark them as they appear.

Measure crack widths at each step of loading.

Remove the dial gauges well before failure.

Note carefully the behaviour of the beam at every loading stage (including the load at

which the first crack appears), the failure load and mode of the failure.

Step 3: Test the beam without shear reinforcement

Follow the same procedure stated above for testing the beam with shear links

You are expected to include the following in your report

1. Flexural Capacity

Find out the expected flexural capacity based on your design values. [05Marks]

Calculate the expected flexural capacity based on the obtained material properties

(using cubes). [05 Marks]

Compare the above two values with the actual flexural capacity calculated from the

experimental results and suggest the reasons for differences if any. [10 Marks]

2. Deflection

Calculate the expected mid-span deflection based on design failure load. [05 Marks]

Draw the measured and estimated load Vs deflection diagrams for both beams in one

plot. [05 Marks]

Determine the E-value from the load vs deflection curve. [05 Marks]

Discuss the reasons for deviations between the measured and expected curves

[05 Marks]

Discuss the expected failure mechanism in each type of beams. [10 Marks]

Sketch the crack pattern you would expect in each beams. [10 Marks]

Part 2 [40 Marks]

Studying structural failure case studies is a way of studying the history of the engineering

profession. Typical calculations for design are based on predicting and avoiding failure. The

factor of safety is used to avoid failures, but knowledge of past failures will better equip an

engineer to steer clear of future failures. It is not only important to know what caused the

failure, but also to understand how it occurred and how to avoid the problem in the future.

You are expected to discuss about at least five failure mechanisms of the structures

considering material used for construction and other factors such as slope stability, accidental

loadings, and vibrations.

Explain each failure modes using a well-known case study, by discussing the technical issues,

the causes, the modes of failure and the remedial measures for mitigation and precaution.
