# REINFORCED CONCRETE DESIGN II – BFC 3280

## EXAMPLE 1.3 : STAIRCASE SPANNING PARALLEL TO FLIGHT WITH LANDINGS

Figure 1.3 shows a staircase spanning parallel to the flight with supporting beams at the
end of landing. Design the staircase if the number of step is 12. Given the following data:

## Characteristic of variable action = 5.0 kN/m2

Finishes and handrails = 1.0 kN/m2
Characteristic strength of concrete = 25 N/mm2
Characteristic strength of steel = 500 N/mm2
Concrete cover to reinforcement = 25 mm
Diameter reinforcement = 12 mm
Riser (R) = 170 mm
Going (G) = 250 mm

12@170

Figure 1.3

## Because span is simply supported but consists flight and landing

h = L/20 =

h=(30002+20402)1/2/20=3627.90/20 = 181.39 mm

 Use h = 180 mm

1.0 SPECIFICATION

Characteristic actions:
Permanent, gk = 1.0 kN/m2 (Excluding selfweight)
Variable, qk = 5.0 kN/m2

Materials:
Characteristic strength of concrete, fck = 25 N/mm2
Characteristic strength of steel, fyk = 500 N/mm2
Unit weight of reinforced concrete = 25 kN/mm3

Assumed:
Cover, C = 25 mm
Diameter bar, Ø = 12 mm

3.0 ACTION

Landing:

## Slab selfweight = h x 25 = 0.180 x 25 = 4.50 kN/m2

Permanent load (excluding selfweight) = 1.00 kN/m2

## Characteristic permanent action, gk = 5.50 kN/m2

Characteristic variable action qk = 5.00 kN/m2

## Design action, nd = 1.35gk + 1.5qk = 14.93 kN/m2
