DESIGN LOAD CRITERIA & SPECIFICATIONS:


A. CODE AND STANDARDS
i.
National Structural Code of the Philippines (NSCP), Vol. 1 of 2001
ii.
ACI Code
iii.
UBC 1997 Loadings

B. LOADINGS:
i.
Deadload:
a. 150mm thick CHB----------------------------------------------------------3.00KPa
b. WSLAB = 0.10x24------------------------------------------------------------2.40KPa

ii.

Super-Imposed Deadload: (Assume Approximate thickness)


a. Ceiling: (thickness = 25mm)
Wc = (0.025) (24.0) = 0.6KPa
b. Floor Finish (thickness = 60mm)
Wf = (0.06) (24) = 1.44KPa
c. Electrical, Plumbing & Fixtures (thickness = 5mm)
Wepf = (0.005) (24) = 0.12KPa
Wt = Wc + Wf + Wefp + Wslab
Wt = 0.60Kpa + 1.44KPa + 0.12KPa
Wt = 4.56KPa

iii.

iv.

Live Load:
a. Private Room----------------------------------------------------------------2.40Kpa
b. Office, Lobbies, Hallways, Stairs----------------------------------------4.80Kpa
c. Storage---------------------------------------------------------------------- 6.00Kpa
Seismic Load:
In accordance with NSCP and UBC 1997 loadings.

v.

Wind Load:
In accordance with NSCP, 2001 edition.

vi.

Design Stresses:
a. Concrete Mixtures (Class A) (1:2:4)
fc = 20.7 MPa strength @ 28th days
b. Reinforcing Steel Bars

fy = 414MPa (Grade 60) for 32mm,25mm,16mm & 12mm bars


fy = 275Mpa (Grade 40) for 10mm bars
c. Structural Steel:
Conform to ASTM (A36) steel, Fy = 248MPa
d. Welding:
Conform to AWS requirements
Use: E70xx Electrodes
vii.

Allowable soil Bearing capacity:


For design purposes, assumed allowable Soil Bearing Capacity (SBC) = 140KPa
is used. It is recommended that the assumed data must be verified prior to
construction; and if field condition indicates that the actual allowable soil bearing
capacity is less than the assumed value, the designer must be informed for the
immediate revision of the footings.

viii.

Construction Procedure:
a. Reinforcing Steel:
Reinforcing steels shall conform to ASTM A615. Bar splices, bendings,
hooks and placing shall be in accordance to NSCP and ACI codes.
b. Concrete Works:
Concrete Mix and placing shall be in accordance with NSCP and ACI
codes.
c. Falseworks and Formworks:
Stripping of forms recommendations:
Shoring under beams/girders------------------------------------------14days
Suspended slab----------------------------------------------------------14days
Columns-------------------------------------------------------------------7days
Side beams----------------------------------------------------------------2days
d. Curing:
Curing of concrete shall be done within 28 days or as instructed by the
Engineer.
e. Embankment/Backfill:
All embankment materials shall be granular in nature and shall be
compacted thoroughly (layer by layer) as per ASTM recommendations in
order to attain the required density of the fill. Provide well compacted
aggregate base coarse over filling materials.
f. Embedment of Footing:

All footings shall be embedded within a minimum depth of 3.0m from


the natural ground level or as determined by the Project Engineer. In no
case shall footings rest on backfills.
g. Deep Excavations:
All deep excavations shall be protected with sheet pile walls or other
protective methods as determined by the Project Engineer in order to
avoid damage to adjacent properties or to impair stability of nearby
existing structures.
h. Plan and Load Revisions:
Concrete Hollow Block partitions and Reinforced Concrete walls are as
indicated in the structural plans. Additional CHB and RC walls shall be
subjected to the approval of the Structural Engineer.
It shall be the responsibility of the owner of the Building to get the
approval of the Structural Engineer of any Live Load which shall be
imposed on any area of the building different from and/or exceeding the
design live loads specified herein.

Plans should be signed and sealed by the authorized Engineer. Any changes on
the plans should be verified by the authorized Engineer and must be thoroughly
reviewed and
