Design of Rectangular Beams and One-Way Slabs

In the previous chapter, the behaviour of reinforced concrete beams


(and one-way slabs) was explained, and procedures given for the
analysis of sections.
Unlike the analysis problem, the design problem does not have a
unique solution because the flexural strength of a section is dependent
on its width and effective depth, and on the area of reinforcement; and
there are several combinations of these which would give the required
strength. Different designers may come up with different solutions, all
of which may meet the desired requirements.
A complete design of a beam involves considerations of safety under
the ultimate limit states in flexure, shear, torsion and bond, as well as
considerations of the serviceability limit states of deflection,
crack-width, durability etc.

Required strength

Required strength U shall be at least equal to the effects of factored


loads in Eq. (9-1) through (9-7). The effect of one or more loads not
acting simultaneously shall be investigated.

U = 1.4D (9 1)
U = 1.2D + 1.6L + 0.5(Lr or S or R) (9 2)
U = 1.2D + 1.6(Lr or S or R) + (1.0L or 0.5W ) (9 3)
U = 1.2D + 1.0W + 1.0L + 0.5(Lr or S or R) (9 4)
U = 1.2D + 1.0E + 1.0L + 0.2S (9 5)
U = 0.9D + 1.0W (9 6)
U = 0.9D + 1.0E (9 7)
Where: D = dead load, L = live load, Lr = roof live load, S = snow load,
R = rain load, W = wind load, E = seismic load

Example:4.1
The compression gravity axial loads for a building column have been estimated with the
following results: D = 150 k; live load from roof, Lr = 60 k; and live loads from floors, L = 300 k.
Compression wind, W = 70 k; tensile wind, W = 60 k; seismic compression load = 50 k; and
tensile seismic load = 40 k. Determine the critical design load using the SNI load combinations.
Solution:
(9 1)U = 1.4D = (1.4)(150k) = 210k
(9 2)U = 1.2D + 1.6L + 0.5(Lr or S or R) = (1.2)(150k) + (1.6)(300k) + (0.5)(60k) = 690k
(9 3)(a)U = 1.2D + 1.6(Lr or S or R) + (L or 0.5W ) = (1.2)(150k) + (1.6)(60k) + (300k) = 576k
(b)U = 1.2D + 1.6(Lr or S or R) + (L or 0.5W ) = (1.2)(150k) + (1.6)(60k) + (0.5)(70k) = 311k
(c)U = 1.2D + 1.6(Lr or S or R) + (L or 0.5W ) = (1.2)(150k) + (1.6)(60k) + (0.5)(60k) = 246
(9 4)(a)U = 1.2D + 1.0W + L + 0.5(Lr or S or R) = (1.2)(150k) + (1.0)(70k) + (300k) + 0.5(60k) =
(b)U = 1.2D + 1.0W + L + 0.5(Lr or S or R) = (1.2)(150k) + (1.0)(60k) + (300k) + 0.5(60k) =
(9 5)(a)U = 1.2D + 1.0E + L + 0.2S = (1.2)(150k) + (1.0)(50k) + (300k) + (0.2)(0k) = 530k
(b)U = 1.2D + 1.0E + L + 0.2S = (1.2)(150k) + (1.0)(40k) + (300k) + (0.2)(0k) = 440k
(9 6)(a)U = 0.9D + 1.0W = (0.9)(150k) + (1.0)(70k) = 205k
(b)U = 0.9D + 1.0W = (0.9)(150k) + (1.0)(60k) = 75k
(9 7)(a)U = 0.9D + 1.0E = (0.9)(150) + (1.0)(50k) = 185k
(b)U = 0.9D + 1.0E = (0.9)(150) + (1.0)(40k) = 95k

Design of Rectangular Beams
Before the design of an actual beam is attempted, several
miscellaneous topics need to be discussed :
(1) Beam proportions, ratio d to b, in 1 12 to 2
(2) Deflection, from best practice h l/10 to l/14 this value is higher
than SNI.
(3) Estimated beam weight. The weight of the beam to be selected must
be included in the calculation of the bending moment to be
resisted. Reinforced concrete weigth is 240 kN/m3 .
(4) Selection of bars. After the required reinforcing area is calculated.
(5) Cover. Use SNI 7.7 for requirements.
