Objectives and Methods of Analysis and Design pdf : concrete and steel

Lesson 1 : Objectives and Methods of Analysis and Design 

At the end of this lesson, the student should be able to:
• state the four objectives of the design of reinforced concrete structures,
• name the three methods of design of concrete structure and identify the best
method of design,
• state the basis of the analysis of the structure,
• express the design loads in terms of characteristic loads in limit state and
working stress methods,
• define the characteristic load,
• name the different loads, forces and effects to be considered in the design,
• state the basis of determining the combination of different loads acting on the

Lesson 2 : Properties of Concrete and Steel

At the end of this lesson, the student should be able to:
• know the properties of concrete inrespect of strength, deformation and
• know the properties of steel used as reinforcement in concrete structures
•understand the importance of quality control, inspection and testing of
concrete and steel in several steps from its basic preparation to the removal
of formwork after the construction
• recommend the acceptance of good concrete based on sample test of
specimens, core tests, load test and non-destructive tests

FLAT SLAP of Common practice of design and construction is to support the slabs by beams and support the beams by columns. This may be called as beam-slab construction. The beams reduce the available net clear ceiling height. Hence in warehouses, offices and public halls some times beams are avoided and slabs are directly supported by columns. This types of construction is aesthetically appealing also. These slabs which are directly supported by columns are called Flat Slabs.

Single 4-tension bolt end plate moment connection
Double 4-tension bolt end plate moment connections
Single 8-tension bolt end plate moment connection
Double 8-tension bolt end plate moment connections

"ENDPLMC9" is a spreadsheet program written in MS-Excel for the purpose of analysis and design of end plate moment connections per the AISC 9th Edition (ASD) Manual. Specifically the program can analyze both single 4-tension bolt and 8-tension bolt configurations, as well as the conditions of having moment connections on each side of the column attached to the column flanges.
