REINFORCED CONCRETE DESIGN EXERCISE

BEng 2
DESIGN BRIEF
Design a permanent building for use as an office building. The structure is to be situated adjacent to
an existing office building, should be attractive and integrate with it's surroundings.

SITE

Select a suitable site near the University which would be appropriate for the intended building. Assume
that there is an unbuilt level site available and that there are no planning restrictions.

SIZE AND STRUCTURE

Design the building as a two storey structure with an area of 225 m2 per floor. The building has a
length of 15m and a width of 15m. Each floor should have four equal areas with a clear height of 3.5m
and should be isolated from each other for fire and safety reasons. Access to floors is to be provided
external to the main building area. Adequate lighting, either natural or artificial, heating and ventilation
should also be provided.

The structural layout of the building should be of a traditional beam, column


and slab type.

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS AND PRESENTATION

The detailed requirements comprise designs for the main structure and structural elements in
reinforced concrete. The elements to be planned, designed, detailed, drawn and where appropriate,
schedules, are:

(i) the general arrangements, to include elevations, plans, longitudinal and transverse cross-sections
of the building;
(ii) the first floor slab ;
(iii) the main internal centre beam ;
(iv) the central column on the ground floor;
(v) the footing slab to support this central column;
(vi) other building details to be considered as described hereafter.

In addition the following must be carried out:


(i) a wind analysis and design for the structure and members
mentioned above:
(ii) costing based upon the unit area costs method.

ENGINEERING DECISIONS

The initial engineering decisions to be taken are:

(i) the type and arrangement of foundations;


(ii) the planning of space for the facilities and equipment, ie the spatial plan;
(iii) the form of structural layout, both in plan and cross section to house and support all the facilities,
equipment and services listed above; (iii) is consequent upon (ii);
DATA

(a) Assume that a detailed site survey and a soils survey have been previously carried out. Assume
also that loading data have been obtained and meteorological and environmental factors have been
considered.

(b) Regulations, Codes and References Applicable

The following documents must be consulted in order to implement the above requirements:

(i) The Building Regulations.


(ii) Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures
th th
(iii) "Reinforced Concrete Design to Eurocode 2" Mosley, Dungey.& Hulse, 6 or 7 ed
(iv) Eurocode 0: Basis of Design
(v) Eurocode 1: Actions on Structures
(vi) "Designed and Detailed", Higgins and Rogers. BCA.
(vii) "Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete". Kong and Evans.
(viii) "Standard Method of Detailing Structural Concrete". IStructE/The Concrete Society.
(ix) Manual for the design of concrete buildings to Eurocode 2 IStrutE
(x) MOODLE notes

(c) Fire Resistance and Durability

Fire resistance of two hour for all elements is required. The fire resistance and durability limit states
for the design can be satisfied by reference to Eurocode 2 Part 1-2, in respect of covers.

(d) Materials

Take a concrete grade of C30/37 or higher


and a steel grade of fyk = 500 N/mm2 for all bars

(e) Exposure Conditions

External concrete may be considered to be exposed to cyclic wet and dry conditions. Internal concrete
is to be classified as exposed to dry conditions.

(f) Loadings

Roof 1.5 kN/m2


Floors from Eurocode 1
Finishes and Partitions 2.5 kN/m2
Cladding 5.0 kN/m
Equivalent dead weight of
concrete in force units 24 kN/m3

The dead load will consist of the self-weight of the member to be designed plus finishes and partitions
and where appropriate, the cladding. The other loadings are to be considered as imposed.

(g) Footings

Assume a firm clay foundation without sulphate inclusions. The allowable bearing pressure is to be
taken as 250 kN/m2. Assume that the settlement characteristics of the clay are satisfactory and that
no special measures need to be taken.
Groups of 4 students only. The submissions should have a cover sheet
and signed by all students.

Submission date

Friday 9th June 2017, before 12.00 in coursework box

Marking Criteria

The project will be assessed using the following criteria:

Group mark
General presentation (10%) the mark will be based on the overall quality and presentation
of the report. In addition, overall stability, robustness and durability will be assessed.

Slab Design (15%) the mark will be based on the accuracy and thoroughness of the slab
design, including the presentation of the calculations and section sketches.

Beam Design (20%) the mark will be based on the accuracy and thoroughness of the
beam design, including the presentation of the calculations and section sketches. The
structural analysis including redistribution of moments is important.

Column Design (10%) the mark will be based on the accuracy and thoroughness of the
slab design, including the presentation of the calculations and section sketches.

Footing Design (10%) the mark will be based on the accuracy and thoroughness of the
slab design, including the presentation of the calculations and section sketches.

Drawings (20%) the mark will be based on one A3 hand drawing of the slab reinforcement
and A4 sketches of the other structural members. Detailing reinforcement should be
included.

Individual Mark
In-class design test (15%)
