TITLE: CRACK WIDTH CALCULATION FOR WALLS DESIGNED CHECKED SHEET


PHK SSM

CHECK FOR CRACK WIDTH : as per IS 456 : 2000 ANNEX F

GRADE OF CONCRETE fck = 30 N/mm2

MOMENT AT THE SECTION CONSIDERED M = 1.5 tm

DEPTH OF THE SECTION D = 450 mm

DEPTH OF THE FLANGE Df = 150 mm

EFFECTIVE DEPTH d = 407.5 mm

BREADTH OF THE FLANGE Bf = 1000 mm

COVER TO THE COMPRESSION STEEL d' = 54.5 mm


DISTANCE FROM THE POINT CONSIDERED TO
THE SURFACE OF THE NEAREST acr = 92.7 mm
LONGITUDINAL BAR

MINIMUM COVER TO THE LONGITUDINAL BAR Cmin = 54.5 mm

THE WIDTH OF THE SECTION AT THE bt = 1000 mm


CENTROID OF THE TENSION STEEL

MODULAR RATIO m = Es/Ec 8

AREA OF TENSION STEEL Ast = 400 mm2

AREA OF COMPRESSION STEEL Asc = 0 mm2

NEUTRAL AXIS x = 47.97 mm

CRACKED MOMENT OF INERTIA Icr = 4.50E+08 b


SERVICE STRESS IN TENSION fs = m x M x(d-x)/Icr 93.96 N/mm2
REINFORCEMENT
MODULUS OF ELASTICITY OF STEEL Es = 2.00E+05 N/mm2
DISTANCE FROM THE COMPRESSION FACE
TO THE POINT AT WHICH THE CRACK WIDTH a' = 150 mm
IS BEING CALCULATED
STRAIN AT THE LEVEL CONSIDERED, e1 = ((D-x)/(d-x)) x fs/Es 0.000525

em = e1- (bt(d-x)(a'-x) ) 0.000405 ###

DESIGN SURFACE CRACK WIDTH Wcr = 3 x acr x em 0.09 mm


1 + 2(acr-Cmin)/(D-x)

PERMISSIBLE CRACK WIDTH = 0.3 mm
