#### 3. Behaviour of Beams and One-Way Slabs in Flexure

Two distinct zones can be observed: a compression zone and a tension zone, separated by the neutral axis (zero stress). Given its low tensile strength (assumption A2), concrete can resist tensile forces until it is cracked. Thereafter, these forces are transferred...

#### 4. Design and Verification of Beams and One-Way Slabs in Flexure

Several reasons may lead engineers to consider sections with both tension and compression reinforcement (so-called doubly reinforced sections). Examples include a) cyclic loading (such as earthquakes), b) constructive compression bars...

#### 7. Bond Development and Splice Reinforcement

When designing RC structures, it is generally assumed that steel and concrete are intimately linked at their interface through a so-called bond. This assumption is of paramount importance. In flexure, for example, the lack of bond will prevent the force in the...

#### 8. Approximate Frame Analysis Method for Continuous RC Beams and One-Way Slabs

RC building structures (beams, columns, floors, and slabs) are generally cast in place and are therefore considered as monolithic. These structures behave therefore as tridimensional statically indeterminate systems (Figure 8.1a). Their analysis is often long...

#### 9. Two-Way Slabs on Stiff Beams or Walls on Four Sides

When the negative moment of one supported side of a continuous slab differs by more than 20% from that of the other side, the difference must be redistributed over the two adjacent panels according to their respective stiffnesses. Should the difference...

#### 10. Two-Way Slabs: Direct-Design Method

In the case of two-way slabs not resting on rigid supports, as defined in Chapter 9, the direct-design method can be a wise choice. This method, described in Clause 13.9 of the standard, is a simplified version of the equivalent-frame method. It is based on empirical...

#### 11. Compression Members: Braced Columns

Columns are rarely subjected to concentric compressive loading. Normally, they are subject to compression resulting from vertical loading and flexural moment caused by one or more of the following: a) continuous moment transmitted from the floor...
