Coursework brief :-
Figure 1 below shows a structural layout/grid of a five-storey building with a height of 4 m for each storey. The whole building structure consists of a simply constructed steel frame for the gridlines 1 to 3 and a simply constructed concrete frame for the gridlines 4 to 6. It carries a 150 mm thick pre-cast reinforced concrete floor. The variable action on the floor depth of concrete beam spacing and spans of both steel and concrete beams have been tabulated in the table 1 below against your SID.

You are required to design and detail typical structural members of the building structure and submit a technical report of your design and detailing with the evidence of design calculation to the current Code of Practice -Structural Euro codes as appendix to each question below.

Q 1 –Design and detail the reinforced concrete beam B/5-6 using the design data of materials reinforcments and design data provided below:

• Concrete grade C30 fck =30 N/mm2
• Design tensile strength of the concrete fctm =2.9 N/mm2
• Maximum aggregate size of the concrete =20 mm
• Yield strength of main steel reinforcement fyk =500 N/mm2
• Yield strength of transverse links fwyk =500 N/mm2
• Diameter of main reinforcement for a beam ds = 25mm
• Diameter of transverse links dL = 10mm
• 15% moment redistribution δ = 0.85
• Concrete cover to the reinforcements in concrete beam c = 25mm
• Unit weight of concrete γ = 25 kN/m3
• Width of a beam section b =300mm

a. Identify the concrete beam in the structural grid and calculate design action bending moment and shear force before draw the BMD and SFD.
b. Carry out bending design and detailing for the main reinforcements.
c. Carry out shear design and detailing for the transverse links.
d. Check by calculation whether the beam satisfies deflection requirements.
e. List the measures you have taken to control the cracking of concrete.
f. Detail both construction drawings and table of reinforcements.

Q2 –Design and detail the steel beam B/1-2 with an assumption of all the steel beams in the building floor using UKB section in grade of S275.
a. Identify the beam in the structural grid and calculate the design action bending moment and shear force before draw the BMD and SFD.
b. Determine by calculation a suitable UKB section for the beam and check by calculation whether the chosen section satisfies the design requirements with regard to bending shear and deflection respectively if it is laterally restrained along the span.
c. Use the SCI design table to check whether the above chosen UKB section is still adequate if the beam is only laterally restrained at both ends.
d. Use the SCI Tables to re-choose a UKB section for the beam B/1-2 and validate by manual calculation its adequacy on bending shear and deflection.

Q3 –Design and detail the steel column B/2 with an assumption of all the steel columns in the building floor using UKC section in grade of S275

a. Identify the column in the structural grid and calculate its design action and design axial force.
b. Determine by calculation a suitable UKC section for the column if it is prevented from buckling about both major and minor axes under an axial force only.
c. If the column is hold at both ends, partially restrained about its major y-y and effectively restrained about its minor axis z-z check by calculation whether the above chosen UKC section is still adequate for the column under the axial force only.
d. Use the SCI design table to re-choose a section for the column B/2 and validate by calculation its adequacy under the axial force only.

Q4 – Critically compare the bending performance, strain and stress status at the ultimate limit state and design bending resistance of a singly reinforced concrete beam a restrained steel beam and a timber beam.

Q5. Report writing with the above design calculation sheets as its Appendices.
a. Introduction and Methodology
b. Results and Discussion
c. Conclusion and Reflection.
d. Clarity of explanation and analysis, spelling and grammar.
