Question

A reinforced concrete square column (0.26m × 0.26m) is
supported by a square isolated footing (spread footing). The
footing is of plain concrete, and concentrically loaded. An
engineer has suggested 1.25m × 1.25m footing. First, check the
sufficiency of footing dimension. If it is not sufficient, design
the footing in accordance with the requirements of ACI 318M-08 and
using the following available data:

Net allowable soil pressure: net qa = 170 kPa

Column loads (unfactored): D = 160 kN L = 100 kN

Column steel: six No. 25 bars; fy = 420 MPa, Esteel = 200000
MPa

Column concrete: f 'c = 25 MPa

Footing concrete: f 'c = 20 MPa

Before submitting the solution, please make sure that the
solution readable and understandable. Thank you.

Answer #1

Design a wall footing to support a 300 mm reinforced concrete
wall with dead load of 292KN/m and live load of 200 KN/m. The
bottom of the footing is 1.20 m below the final grade, the soil
weighs 15,700 N/m3. The allowable soil pressure is 190 Kpa. fy =
276.5 Mpa, fc’ = 27.6 Mpa.

A square-shaped spread footing with plan dimensions of 3m x 3m
is supporting a 500mm square concrete interior column. The column
carries a total factored load of 2850 kN. Use 25M bars Clear
cover=75mm fc’ = 25 MPa fy = 400 MPa
a) Determine the factored bearing pressure, qf, acting on the
soil due to the factored load, Pf=2850kN
b) Design the footing thickness based on two-way (punching)
shear requirements (Assume single shear will be satisfied). Assume
that the factored...

(30 pts) A short reinforced concrete column is
subjected to a 1000 kN axial compressive load. The moduli of
elasticity of plain concrete and steel are 25 GPa and 207 GPa,
respectively, and the cross-sectional area of steel is 2% of that
of the reinforced concrete. Considering the column as a structural
member made of a composite material and subjected to load parallel
to the steel rebars, calculate the following:
a. the modulus of elasticity
of the reinforced concrete
b....

A column is made of concrete and reinforced with a W-section
steel with an area of 2000 mm2. The dimension of the column is
300mm x 350mm. The column is subjected to an axial load of 100 kN.
What will be the deformed length of the column? Use Es =
200 GPa and Ec = 25 GPa.
