A short reinforced concrete column is subjected to a 700 kips
axial compressive load. The modulus of elasticity of plain concrete
and steel are 4,500,000 psi and 29,000,000, respectively, and the
cross-sectional area of steel is 3.0% 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
bars. Calculate the modulus of elasticity of the reinforced
concrete, as well as how much load is...

Determine the largest allowable bending moment for a rectangular
reinforced concrete beam having the width b = 200 mm, total height
h = 375 mm and the distance from the bottom surface of the beam to
the centre line of steel bars = 75 mm. Use the total area of steel
As = 1360 mm2, modulus of elasticity of concrete = 30 GPa, modulus
of elasticity of steel = 210 GPa, allowable compressive stress for
concrete = 15 MPa and...

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.

A hollow circular steel column 2m long and outer diameter 200
mm carries an axial load of 325 kN. If the compressive stress is
150 MPa, lateral strain for external diameter is is 0.000325 and
Poisson’s ratio is 0.3, find the minimum wall thickness required
for the column. Also calculate the shear modulus for the material
of the column. Take E = 210 GPa.

Select a light W shape for a column subjected to an axial
compressive load of 1623kN. The unbraced length of column is 5m and
the ends are pinned. Use A36 grade steel.

A (65 KN) wheel load is placed on a Portland cement concrete
slab that is (0.240 m)
thick. The concrete has a modulus of elasticity of (27 GPa).
The modulus of subgrade reaction is (0.3 N/mm3). Calculate Poisson
ratio, if the edge stress is (1.715 MPa) due to a wheel load
applied on an equivalent circular area whose radius is (16 cm) for
above mentioned slab.

A reinforced concrete column, 5.0 m high has a cross section
of 400 mm x 400 mm. it is reinforced by four steel bars each 20 mm
in diameter and carries a load of 1000 kN. Young’s modulus for
steel is 200,000 N/mm2 and for concrete is 15,000 N/mm2. Determine
the deformation in mm?

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...

For a 8m long column whose cross sectional dimensions are 0.1m x
0.4m, determine the allowable load using a safety factor of 2.5.
The column is welded at both ends. Its yield stress is 250 MPa and
its modulus of elasticity is 210 GPa. using Euler Formula or J. B.
Johnson Formula.
