6CE4A: DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES – I (L3) 


Units  Contents of the subjects 
Objective and fundamental concepts of design of RC members, Types and function of reinforcement. Introduction to various related IS codes. Design Philosophies: Working stress, ultimate strength and limit states of design. Analysis and Design of singly reinforced rectangular beam section for flexure using Working Stress Method and Limit State Method.  
Analysis and design of singly reinforced, flanged beams and doubly reinforced rectangular beams for flexure using Limit State Method. Limit state of serviceability for deflection, control of deflection as per codal provisions of empirical coefficients.  
Limit state of collapse in shear: analysis and design of prismatic sections for shear using LSM. Limit state of collapse in bond: concept of bond stress, anchorage length and development length, curtailment of reinforcement as per codal provisions. 

Analysis and design of one way and two way slabs using LSM and Flat slab using direct design method as per code, Detailing of reinforcement.  
Columns: Short and long columns, their structural behaviour. Analysis and design of axially loaded short
columns, using LSM. Analysis of uniaxially eccentrically loaded short columns. Introduction to PuMu
interaction curves and their use for eccentrically loaded columns. Design of Column Footings: Analysis and design of Isolated column footing and combined footing for two columns (without central beam) for axial loads using LSM.
