Types of Staircase

Straight stair spanning


Spiral stair horizontally

Slabless stair
General Design Considerations

Loads
• Permanent action: Weight of steps & finishes. Also consider
increased loading on plan (inclination of the waist)
• Stairs with open well: Two intersecting landings at right-angles to
each other, loads on areas common to both spans may be divided
equally between spans

Bending Moment & Shear Force


• Stair slab & landing to support unfavourable arrangements of
design load
• Continuous stairs: Bending moment can be taken as FL/10 (F is
the total ultimate load)
General Design Considerations

Effective Span
• Stairs between beam or wall: Centreline between the supporting
beam or wall
• Stairs between landing slab: Centreline of the supporting landing
slab, or the distance between edges of supporting slab + 1.8 m
(whichever is the smaller)

Detailing
• Ensure that the tension bar may not break through at the kink

Action & Analysis
Landing

Slab selfweight = 25.0  0.150 = 3.75 kN/m2


Permanent action (excluding selfweight) = 1.00 kN/m2
Characteristics permanent action, gk = 3.75 + 1.00 = 4.75 kN/m2

Characteristics variable action, qk = 3.00 kN/m2

Design action, nd = 1.35gk + 1.5qk = 10.91 kN/m2

Consider 1 m width, wd, landing = nd  1 m = 10.91 kN/m/m width

Slab selfweight = 25.0  0.265 = 6.63 kN/m2


Permanent action (excluding selfweight) = 1.00 kN/m2
Characteristics permanent action, gk = 6.63 + 1.00 = 7.63 kN/m2

Characteristics variable action, qk = 3.00 kN/m2

Design action, nd = 1.35gk + 1.5qk = 14.80 kN/m2

Consider 1 m width, wd, flight = nd  1 m = 14.80 kN/m/m width

M = FL/10 = 20.4 kNm

M = FL/10 = 20.4 kNm

Note: F = wd  L = (5.46  1.6 m) + (14.80  2.65 m) = 48.0 kN
