ASSIGN ON STEEL REINFORCEMENT

## • What is the purpose of providing cover to

the reinforcement? Give the value of
clear cover for mild exposure conditions
for slabs, beams, columns, footings.

## • What is the difference between clear

cover and effective cover to the
reinforcement?

## • What is the diff between overall depth

and effec depth of an RCC beam. Why
effec depth and not overall depth is
adopted in the design of beams?

1. Explain the terms: One-way slab, 2-way slab, clear
span, effective span, overall depth, aspect ratio,
simply supported slabs, continuous slabs, cantilever
slabs.
2. Give expressions for BM along short and long
span of a simply supported slab of span lx=4m,
ly=6m and loaded with a udl of w KN/m2.
Calc Mx and my if w=10 KN.m2.
3. Define Aspect Ratio. Explain why two-way slabs
with aspect rate>=2.0 are generally designed as
1-way slabs?
4. Give general rules for detailing of reinforcement in
RCC slabs.
5. Sketch typical 2-way slab, 2-way cont. slab,
cantilever slabs.
• Rules for providing stirrups in beams:
– Dia. 8mm, 10mm, 12mm(rare). 2 or
multilegged.
– Designed to resist shear force in beam
members.
– As SF in a beam is max. at supports, spacing
of stirrups is less at supports and increases at
mid span.
– Max spacing of stirrups=0.75d; d=effec depth
of beam
– For seismic areas, max spacing up to a
distance of 2d from supports=d/4. For
remaining portion of beam max spacing=d/2.
