Expansion Joint in Concrete

 Expansion Joint in Concrete        Structures in which marked changes in plain dimension take place abruptly shall be provided with expansion on joints at the section where such change occur.  Expansion joints shall be so provided that the necessary movement occur with minimum resistance at  the joint . the structures adjacent to the joint should preferably by supported on separated on separate column and walls but not necessarily on separate foundations . Reinforcement shall not extend across an expansion joint break between the sections shall be complete. why expansion joint required  The details as to the length of a structure where expansion joints have to be provided can be determined after taking into consideration various factors such as temperature exposure to weather the time and season of the laying of the concrete etc . normally structures exceeding 45m in length are designed with one ore more expansion joints . however in view of the large number factors involved in decidi

Longitudinal reinforcement in Column

  Longitudinal reinforcement in Column The cross - sectional area of longitudinal reinforcement , shall be not less than 0.8 present nor more then 6 percent of the gross cross -sectional area of the column . in any column that has large cross-sectional area than that require to support the load the minimum percentage of shall based upon the area of concert requested to resist the direct stress and upon the actual area  The minimum number of longitudinal bars provide in a column shall be four in rectangular column shall be rectangular column in six circular column  The bar shall not be less then 12 mm in diameter  Reinforcement concrete column having helical reinforcement shall have at list six bars of longitudinal reinforcement within the helical reinforcement in a helically reinforcement column the longitudinal bars shall be in contact within the helical reinforcement .and equidistant around its inner circumference  spacing of longitudinal bars measured along the peripheric of the sha

Development Length of Bars

  What is Development Length of Bars The calculate tension or compression in any bar at any section shall be development on each size the section by any appropriate development length or end anchorage or by combination thereof . Development length of Bars Ld Ld = ɸ x   бa /4 X τ bd Where ɸ = Nominal dia of the bars   бa = stress in the bar in the consider in design load τ bd = design load bond stress  Design bond stress in limit state method for plain bar Grade of concrete M20 M25 M30 M35 `M40 Design bond stress τ bd N/mm 2 1.2 1.4 1.5 1.7 1.9 For deformed bars conforming to IS 1786 this value conforming to IS 1786 this value shall be be 60 percent  for bras in compression, the values of bond stress for bars in tension shall be inceeased by 25 percent . Example : assume stress in a bar consider 550D M30 concrete ,and dia is 20mm Ld = ɸ x   бa / 4 x τ bd Ld =20

Pile Integrity Test Results

Pile integrity Test Procedure   The purpose of this study was to test the test piles under Routine load. The design load on the pile is 43.0 T as computed based upon static analysis. The pile is to be tested for vertical compression up to 1.5 times the design load (65.0 ton) or failure, whichever is earlier. The test results have been analyzed to evaluate the safe load on test pile. The test pile is RCC Bored-cast-in-situ of 600 mm diameter and 11.2m length. TEST PROCEDURE FOR VERTICAL COMPRESSION TEST              The procedure for the test was in general accordance with IS:2911 (Part- IV) -1985. The reaction for applying compression load on the test pile is taken by kentledge method to transfer the load on test pile by sand bags. The test load was applied on the pile top by means of a hydraulic jack using plate girders with synchronized electric pumping unit.   The load is measured with the help of a calibrated load gauge attached t
