Comparative Design of Biaxial R.C. Columns to BS 8110 and EC2

A reinforced concrete column fixed at both ends is subjected to the following loading conditions as given below. We are required to obtain the...

How to Calculate the Anchorage and Lap Length of Steel Reinforcements According to Eurocode 2

Reinforcing bars should be well anchored so that the bond forces are safely transmitted to the concrete to avoid longitudinal cracking or spalling. Transverse...

Solved Example on Design of Slender Columns According to EC2

1.0 Introduction Loads from slabs and beams are transferred to the foundations through the columns. In typical cases, columns are usually rectangular or circular in...

Example on Design of Doubly-Reinforced Beams According to EC2

In the design of reinforced concrete beams, if the design ultimate moment is greater than the ultimate moment of resistance i.e. MEd > MRd,...

Comparison of Shear Design Procedures According to EC2 and BS 8110-1:1997

Eurocode 2 uses the variable strut inclination method for shear design. It is slightly more complex than the procedure in BS 8110 but can...

Free MATLAB Code for Flexural Design of R.C. Sections According to EC2

In this post, I am going to present an extremely simplified MATLAB code for carrying out flexural design of reinforced concrete beams (rectangular or...

Two Approaches to the Calculation of Deflection in EC2; Choose a Faster Approach for Yourself

The verification of deflection is an important serviceability check in reinforced concrete design. Most designs codes adopt the 'deemed to satisfy' rules which limit...

Structural Analysis and Design of Residential Buildings Using Staad.Pro, Orion, and Manual Calculations

This should be a long post, but I am going to try and keep it as brief as possible. This post is more like...

ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF NETWORK OF INTERACTING PRIMARY AND SECONDARY BEAMS IN LARGE SPAN CONSTRUCTION

1.0. Introduction In some construction cases, it is desirable to have large uninterrupted floor areas, and in such cases, the presence of columns have to...

Lateral Deflection of Multi-storey Rigid Frame Buildings under the Action of Wind Load: A Comparative Analysis

Rigid frames, rigid planar shear walls, coupled shear walls, and cores are usually employed when forming the bracing system of a multi-storey building. These...

Design of Reinforced Concrete Staircase According to Eurocode 2

1.0 Introduction In multi-storey buildings, ramps, elevators, escalators, and stairs are often employed to facilitate vertical circulation. Circulation refers to the movement of people and...

Analysis and Design of a Continuous R.C. Raker Beam for Stadium Using Eurocode 2

The most common construction concept of sports stadiums today is a composite type where usually precast concrete terrace units (seating decks) span between inclined...
