Composite concrete flexural construction—A precast concrete member and cast-in-place reinforced concrete so interconnected that the compo- nent elements act together as a flexural unit. Items of a more general nature are indicated by page numbers in normal weight type Web rein- forcement between the face of the support and the section at a distance d therefrom shall be the same as required at that section. The reinforce- ment in each band shall be of equivalent size and spacing to that re- quired for the maximum positive moment in the slab.


These methods of design are to implement the pro- visions of Section Welding of reinforcement is covered by reference to the appropriate AWS standard. In structures in which it is normal practice to take into account creep, elastic deformation, shrinkage, and temperature, the effects of such items shall be considered on the same basis as the effects of dead load.

In determining the limiting deflection for a cantilever, I shall be taken as twice the distance from the support to the end, and the deflection shall be adjusted for movement of the support. The ties shall be so arranged that every corner and alternate longitudinal bar shall have lateral support provided by the corner of a tie having an included angle of not more than deg and no bar shall be farther than 6 in.

SYNOPSIS This code provides minimum requirements for the design and construction of reinforced concrete, or composite structural elements of any structure erected under the requirements of the general building code of which this code forms a part. When construction joints are necessary, they shall be made in accordance with Section The construction shall consist of at least three continuous panels in each direction. The structure may be considered divided into a number of bents, each consisting of a row of columns or supports and strips of supported slabs, each strip bounded laterally by the center line of the panel on either side of the center line of columns or supports.


FLAT SLABS —Design procedures a Methods of analysis — All flat slab structures shall be designed in accordance with a recognized elastic analysis subject to the limita- tions of Sections andexcept that the empirical method of design given in Section may be used for the design of flat slabs conforming with the limitations given therein.

A complete publications catalog is available from ACI Headquarters free of charge.

Slabs with 38-10 or pockets made by permanent or re- movable fillers between reinforcing bars may be considered flat slabs. Account shall also be taken of the loading condition giving the maximum ratio of bending moment to axial load. Deflection of mem- bers due to the prestressing force and deformation of falsework shall be considered in the design. Spiral reinforcement shall conform to Eq. Combination column—A column in which a structural steel member, designed to carry the principal part of the load, is encased in concrete of such quality and in such manner that the remaining load may be allowed thereon.

The metal cores shall be designed to cai safely any construction or other loads to be placed upon them prior to their encasement in concrete. If column moments have not been considered in the design of the column or if computations show that there is no eccentricity at one or both ends of the column, the factor in a 2 shall be used.

By a standard hook, considered as developing 50 percent of the allowable stress in the bar, plus embedment sufficient to develop by bond the remaining stress in the bar, in conformance with Chapters 13 and Concentration of reinforcement aic the column head by additional reinforcement or closer xci may be used to resist the moment of the section. The live load may be considered to be applied only to the floor or roof under consideration, and the far ends of the columns may be assumed as fixed.

Remember me on 318-110 computer. The shear is not over half that normally permitted, including allowance for shear reinforcement, if any. In solid slabs the piping, except for radiant heating and snow melting, shall be placed between the top and bottom reinforcement.
