Structural Design of Pile Caps Using Strut and Tie Model (EC 2)

Pile caps are concrete mats that rests on piles with adequate rigidity to transfer the column loads to the piles. Piles are provided as...

How to Calculate The Effective Flange of Width of Beams According to EC2

Clause 5.3.2.1 of EN 1992-1-1:2004 covers the calculation of effective flange width of beams for all limit states. For T-beams, the effective flange width,...

Structural Design of Flat Raft Foundation (Rigid Approach)

IntroductionThe conventional rigid combined footing approach is a method of analysing raft foundation using simple statics without any consideration of the elastic...

Structural Design of Combined Footings: Solved Example to Eurocode 2

Introduction Combined footings are normally employed in cases where two or more columns are closely spaced such that their individual pad footings would overlap each...

Analysis of Column Loads in a Building By Considering Beam Support Reactions

Introduction In the manual design of reinforced concrete structures, column loads are usually assessed by considering the support reactions from beams they are supporting, or...

Design of Reinforced Concrete Slanted / Raker Beams

Inclined beams (often called raker beams) are often found in structures like pedestrian bridges, ramps, staircases, stadiums, etc. Due to their geometry, these beams...

Durability of Structures and How to Calculate Concrete Cover (Eurocode 2)

According to clause 4.1 of EN 1992-1-1:2004, a durable structure should meet the requirements of serviceability, strength and stability throughout its design working life,...

Analysis and Design of Curved Circular Beams in a Reservoir

Beams that are curved in plan are often found in buildings, circular reservoirs, bridges, and other structures with curves. Curved beams always develop torsion...

Full Process on How to Carry Out Concrete Mix Design

Nowadays, engineers should have a deeper understanding, than just specifying say 1:2:4 concrete mix ratio for their construction works. Under normal and well controlled...
