Question

The project will include the design of One Way Slabs, Beams and Columns.

Choose the largest room in your house/apartment and measure the area. let's say (length 6m* width 4m) ( height 3m)

Steel yield stress (fy = 60000 psi)

Concrete ultimate compressive strength (f’c = 4000 psi)

Reinforced concrete density = 150 lb/ft3.

Normal weight concrete is used.

The slab is treated as a one way slab and subjected to a dead load of 120 psf (excluding the self-weight of the slab) and a live load of 220 psf.

a.The slab is supported by beams on the edges.

b.There is a column at each corner of the slab supporting the beams.

c.Each beam is sitting on a non-load-bearing wall.

Design

- The slab

- The beams

- The columns

Carry out all ACI code checks and sketch your designs.

Answer #1

A
three-span continuous beam supports 6-inch thick one-way slabs that
span 20 ft center-to-center of beams. The beams have clear spans,
face-to-face of 16-in.-square columns, of 27, 30, and 27 ft. The
floor supports ceiling, ductwork, and lighting fixtures weighing a
total of 8 psf, ceramic floor tile weighing 16 psf, partitions
equivalent to a uniform dead load of 20 psf, and a live load of 100
psf. Design the beam, using f’c = 4500 psi and fy = 60...

Design a one-way floor slab to carry a uniform live load of 500
psf on a simply supported span of 21 ft, given
fc’=4000 psi and
fy=50000 psi. Use the ACI 318 code. Keep the
reinforcement ratio at about 30% of the amount of balanced strain
condition so that deflection is unlikely to be excessive.
