(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 reinforced concrete beam is constructed with Grade 30 concrete
which has a cross section of 450 mm x 660 mm (b = 450 mm and D =
660 mm). The length of the beam is 5 m. The elastic modulus of the
concrete is 32.8 GPa. A uniformly distributed live load of 23 kN/m
is acting on the beam. Determine (a) the design bending moment on
this beam for strength limit state, (b) modular ratio assuming Es =

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...

A composite member is made of a hollow steel pipe with an inner
diameter of 12” and wall thickness 1”. The hollow steel pipe is
filled with concrete and subjected to a compressive force of
120,000 lbs. The member length is 25’. The modulus of elasticity of
concrete and steel are Ec = 3,600,000 psi and
Es = 30,000,000 psi, respectively. Calculate the axial
and compressive loads resisted by the steel and concrete.
Fconcrete = 45000 lbs ; Fsteel =...

1. (a) Explain the difference between
columns which are short and slender
and those which are braced and
unbraced.
(b) Calculate the ultimate axial load
capacity of a short-braced column
supporting an approximately
symmetrical arrangement of beams

The column in (Figure 1) is constructed from high-strength
concrete and eight A992 steel reinforcing rods.
If the column is subjected to an axial force of 200 kip,
determine the required diameter of each rod so that 70 % of the
axial force is carried by the concrete

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.

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...
