II, Cracked Section
When section cracks, N.A. moves
towards compression face means
“
l

increase.
Stage

I, Un

cracked Section
N.A. position is fixed, means “
l

remains constant. Only “T” and
“Cc” increase with the increase of
load

“

N.A. moves towards compression face
because cracking continues.
Failure initiates by the yielding of
steel but final failure is still by
crushing of concrete

Calculate ρ and if it is less than ρ
max
, section is
under reinforced
2.
Using “a” and “d” calculate ε

Alternate Method
Step # 1 to step # 3 are for deciding whether the section is
tension over reinforced or under

reinforced. Alternatively it can
be done in the following manner
.
1.
Calculate
ρ

if
ρ < ρ

Selection of Steel Bars for Beams
1.
When different diameters are selected the maximum
difference can be a gap of one size.
2.
Minimum number of bars must be at least two, one in
each corner.
3.
Always Place the steel symmetrically.
4.
Preferably steel may be placed in a single layer but it is
allowed to use 2 to 3 layers.
5.
Selected sizes should be easily available in market
6.
Small diameter (as far as possible) bars are easy to cut
and bend and place.

7.
ACI Code Requirements
There must be a minimum clearance between bars
(only exception is
bundled bars).
Concrete must be able to flow through the reinforcement.
Bond strength between concrete and steel must be fully
developed.
Minimum spacing must be lesser of the following
Nominal diameter of bars
25mm in beams & 40mm in columns
1.33 times the maximum size of aggregate used.
We can also give an additional margin of 5 mm.

Selection of Steel Bars for Beams
(contd…)
8.
A minimum clear gap of 25 mm is to be provided
between different layers of steel
9.
The spacing between bars must not exceed a maximum
value for crack control,
usually applicable for slabs
What is Detailing?
Deciding diameter of bars
Deciding no. of bars
Deciding location of bent

up and curtailment of bars
making sketches of reinforcements.

Concrete Cover to Reinforcement
Measured as clear thickness outside the outer most

Purpose
To prevent corrosion of steel
To improve the bond strength
To improve the fire rating of a building
It reduces the wear of steel and attack of chemicals
