2 Design Theory on Building Design and Cost Saving in Steel by Using 500-Graded Rebar in Place of Ordinary Steel As Reinforcement Dr. S.M. Atiqul Islam Associate Professor Department of Civil Engineering Dhaka University of Engineering and Technology (DUET) Gazipur-1700 Tel: Mobile:

3 Safety and durability of the structure Beauty of the structure Economy for constructions The responsibility of a design engineer is to fulfill these aims use of appropriate and quality materials Use of modern technology with the advancement of technology Proper design and method of construction Proper maintenance| Three aims of Civil Engineering design

4 Materials used in Civil Engineering RCC Construction Reinforcement as Ms. bar Cement Brick Stone Lime, etc. Proper design and appropriate use of these materials ensures the safety and durability of the structure For the economic consideration the use materials should be such that ensure the durability and safety within the affordability Reinforced concrete is concrete in which reinforcement bars ("rebar") have been incorporated to strengthen the material

5 Structural Design consists the following works Calculation and analysis of loads. Realize of effects due to loads. Findings way to prevent them by selecting and providing proper materials in proper places. In order to understand the structural design it is necessary to understand the failure mechanism of a structure

6 Flexural failure mechanism of RCC Structure

7 60 (420) Grade: Yield Strength = 60 ksi 420 MPa 40 (300) Grade : Yield Strength = 40 ksi 300 MPa 500 (72.5) Grade : Yield Strength = 72.5 ksi or 500 MPa

9 Structural Design It is required for a Structural Engineer to design the structure to satisfy four major criteria Appropriateness- The arrangement of spaces, spans, ceiling heights, access and traffic flow must competent to intended use. Economy- The overall cost of the structure should not exceed the Client Budget Structural adequacy- A structure must be sufficiently strong to support safety, without collapse, all anticipated loadings and a structure must not deflect, tilt, vibrate, or crack in a manner that impairs its usefulness Maintainability- A structure should be designed to require a minimum of maintenance and/or to be able to be maintain in a simple fashion

10 Structural Design The structural design process is a sequential and iterative decision making process consists of three major phases Definition of the clients need and priorities Development of concept of project Design of individual system

11 Design Methods Usual design methods are based on limit states of the structural elements. Limit states design is a design process that involve the followings Identification of all potential modes of failure Determination of acceptable levels of safety against occurrence of each limit state Consideration by the designer of the significant limit states

12 Design Methods Generally there are two types of design method to select the concrete and steel reinforcement. First design concept is Working Stress Design and second one is Ultimate Strength Design.

13 b nA s kd d T= A s f s c s In Working Stress Design, members are designed so that stresses in the steel and concrete resulting from normal service loads are within specified limits. These limits, known as allowable stresses, are only fractions of the failure stresses of the materials. Concrete responds reasonably elastically up to compression stresses not exceeding about half its strength, while steel remains elastic practically up to the yield stress. Hence members may be designed on an elastic basis as long as the stresses under service loads remain below these limits.

14 Beam Design Load Dead Load: Self wt and furniture, equipment, etc Live load Lateral Load; Wind, Earthquake Impact load (if any) Column

15 Lateral Load Earthquake Wind/ Earthquake

16 From Load Analysis by software or manual Moment and shear can be obtained

17 Flexural Moment M= 0.5 fc kjbd2 M=Asfsjd

18 b d c a T= A s f y 0.85 f c = 1 c u y Ultimate Strength Design reinforced concrete structures at loads close to and at failure, one or both of the materials, concrete and steel, are invariably in their nonlinear inelastic range. That is, concrete in a structural member reaches its maximum strength and subsequent fracture at stresses and strains far beyond the initial elastic range in which stresses and strains are fairly proportional. Mn = As fy (d-a/2) where, a= As fy/0.85 fcb b = fc/fy (87,000/87,000+fy)

19 The ACI code (2002 and 2005 version) establishes the value of the required strength called U not less than U = 1.2 D L Where D is effect of dead load and L is effect of live load. Other adjustment factors are provided when design conditions involve consideration of the effect of wind, earthquake, differential settlement, creep, shrinkage, temperature change. Design strength of structure is determined by the application of assumptions and requirements given in the code and is further modified by the use of a strength reduction factor as follows: = 0.9 for flexure, axial tension, and flexure + tension = 0.7 for columns with spirals = 0.65 for columns with ties = 0.75 for shear and torsion = 0.65 for compressive bearing

20 Mu = Mn and Vu = Vn Where Mu and Vu is external factored moment and shear forces Mn and Vn nominal ultimate moment and shear capacity of the member Factor of safety for the various values of and L/D ratio are shown in the following table

21 What ever is the design method and what ever is the element for design, strength of concrete and steel are the main factors If the strength is higher the required amount materials will be less High strength steel will require less amount of steel For 60 grade steel required amount is 2/3 of 40 grade For 500 grade required amount is 20% less than 60 grade

34 Cost Saving in Steel by Using 500-Graded Rebar in Place of Ordinary Steel As Reinforcement

35 In reinforced concrete a long trend is evident towards the use of higher strength materials, both steel and concrete. Reinforcing bars with 40 ksi (40 grade) yield stress, almost standard 20 years ago, has largely been replaced by 60 ksi (60 grade) yield stress. Now a days the demand of high strength steel is increasing. The use of steel ksi is increasing day by day. This is because they are more economical and their use tends to reduce congestion of steel in the forms.

36 Table 1 lists presently available reinforcing steel, their grade designation, ASTM specifications. The yield strength of 500 grade is 500 MPa or 72.5 ksi.

39 The major advantages of using 500 graded steel over any other steel can be summarized: As the steel requirements is lower for 500 graded steel, it is very economical; The steel requirement is lower, the steel congestion relief in the form is lower in the form as shown in Figure 9, Therefore the handling of steel in form is easier As the steel congestion in the form is lower, better concrete placement can be achieved and medium to large course aggregate can be used and higher strength of concrete can be achieved (a)(b)

40 Better bonding is achieved for 500 graded steel As higher yield strength is achieved in 500 Graded Steel than specified, then it is more safer to use 500 Graded steel in reinforcement. For heavy construction, the code recommendation is to use 420 (60) Grade or higher grade steel. (a)(b)

41 Example of lower steel area requirement for 500 graded steel The following table shows the steel requirement for 500, 420 (60) and 300 (40) graded steel and preferable bar steel. The area of the steel can be calculated by the following: Area required by 500 graded steel = 420/500*Area required by 420 grade = 300/500*Area required by 300 grade Cost savings by using 500 graded steel considering 1 ton of steel of 300 grade

42 Example of cost savings by using 500 graded steel

43 Cost saving by using 500 graded over 300 grade steel = (70,200-40,260)* 100/70,200= 42.6% Cost saving by using 500 graded over 420 grade steel = (49,045-40,260)* 100/49,045= 18.0% Cost saving by using 420 graded over 300 grade steel = (70,200-49,045)* 100/70,200= 30.1% However, using of 500 grade steel will increase the 10-15% of concrete volume from 300 grade and 5-10% concrete volume from 420 grade, which will reduce the savings and fall to around 12-15% over 420 grade and 30-35% over 300 grade steel
