DESIGN OF REINFORCED CONCRETE II

Task #1 - Analysis and design of one-way slabs.

1) The Figure 1 shows the floor system of a 3-stories building with a story height of 3.00 [m]. A one-way slab supported
on beams composes the floor system. The slab has a thickness of 170 [mm] and it is supported on the floor and
girder beams. The floor beams (those between axes 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 and 4-5) are supported on the girder beams (those
along axes A to D and 1 to 5) and these last ones are supported on columns with transverse section 500x500 [mm].
Internal beams have a transverse section of dimensions 350x400 and external beams have a transverse section
400x400. There are four different shear walls between the 2-4 and B-C axis, all of them with a thickness of 200
[mm]. The service loads that the floor system must carry are an over-imposed dead load Dsup=1.5[kN/m2] (self-
weight is not included) and a live load L=3.0 kN/m2]. The materials to be used for the design are a concrete f’c=28
[MPa] and a reinforcement steel fy=420 [MPa]. For all the elements, the pouring of the concrete will be monolithic.
With the information given, you must:

a) Do the structural analysis of the one-way slab system for design ultimate loads using the simplified method
proposed by the NSR-10. Using the results of this analysis, you must calculate the reinforcement required
for the slab and check the shear resistance requirements for the element. (Notice that this part of the task
was already developed on class, practically you must transcribe the process already developed).

b) Do the structural analysis of the one-way slab for design ultimate loads using the software SAP 2000. You
must consider at least three different live load patterns for this analysis; you must decide which patterns
to use following your structural analysis knowledge. Using the results you must calculate the reinforcement
required for the slab and check the shear resistance requirements for the element.

c) Draw a sketch that represents the detailing of the reinforcement calculated in part a), this implies
calculating the anchorage and lap lengths for the rebar used (assume these values of length are the same
ones used for beams according to NSR-10), annotate the reinforcement lengths and diameters clearly in
the drawing.

d) Compare the results obtained in part c) with the detailing of reinforcement obtained using the
recommendations of ACI-318 for one-way slabs (Notice that this detailing of reinforcement using ACI-318
was already developed on class).

e) Do a cost analysis per cubic meter of reinforced concrete of the designs obtained in parts a) and b), assume
a price of $ 300.000.00 per cubic meter of concrete and a price of $ 3000.00 per kilogram of reinforcement
steel. Compare the results and conclude the incidence of using those two different models of structural
analysis for one-way slabs in the costs of the material.
