Structural Strength and Stability

Stability of Structures Did you ever wonder why a tightrope walker uses a long pole? The pole lowers the centre of gravity, thereby contributing to stability. Making Structures Strong Many structures have common features that have been proven / Making Structures Strong - Beams 4. Rebar: steel reinforcing rods are placed in concrete as they can withstand tension much better than concrete on its own. “Reinforced concrete” is able to resist both compression and tension.

UNIT-2. TYPES OF FLEXURAL FAILURE When prestressed concrete members to bending loads, different types of flexural failures are possible at critical sections,

the characteristic compressive strength and the average compressive stress and the position of the centre of compression can be assessed. The distribution of concrete strain is linear (plane sections normal to axis remain plane after bending) The resistance of concrete in tension is neglected. The maximum compressive strain in concrete at failure reaches a particular value. The stress distribution in the compression zone of/
