Reinforced Concrete Mechanics And Design Pdf

What is the significance of the “critical stress”? (a)
with respect to the structure of the concrete?
A continuous pattern of mortar cracks begins to form. As a result there are few undamaged portions to carry load and the stress-strain curve is highly nonlinear. (b)
with respect to spiral reinforcement?
At the critical stress the lateral strain begins to increase rapidly. This causes the concrete core within the spiral to expand, stretching the spiral. The tension in the spiral is equilibrated by a radial compression in the core. This in turn, biaxially compresses the core, and thus strengthens it. (c)
with respect to strength under sustained loads?
When concrete is subjected to sustained loads greater than the critical stress, it will eventually fail.

A group of 45 tests on a given type of concrete had a mean strength of 4780 psi and a standard deviation of 525 psi. Does this concrete satisfy the requirements of ACI Code Section 5.3.2 for 4000-psi concrete?
From Eq. 3-3a:
Using (for design)
From Eq. 3-3b:
Using (for design)
Because both of these exceed 4000 psi, the concrete satisfies the requirements of ACI Code Section 5.3.2 for 4000 psi concrete.

What factors affect the shrinkage of concrete? (a)
Relative humidity. Shrinkage increases as the relative humidity decreases, reaching a maximum at RH ≤ 40%.
(b)
The fraction of the total volume made up of paste. As this fraction increases, shrinkage increases.
(c)
The modulus of elasticity of the aggregate. As this increases, shrinkage decreases.
(d)
The water/cement ratio. As the water content increases, the aggregate fraction decreases, causing an increase in shrinkage.
(e)
The fineness of the cement. Shrinkage increases for finely ground cement that has more surface area to attract and absorb water.
(f)
The effective thickness or volume to surface ratio. As this ratio increases, the shrinkage occurs more slowly and the total shrinkage is likely reduced.
(g)
Exposure to carbon dioxide tends to increase shrinkage.
What factors affect the creep of concrete? (a)
The ratio of sustained stress to the strength of the concrete. The creep coefficient, , is roughly constant up to a stress of 0.5 fc', but increases above that value.
(b)
The humidity of the environment. The amount of creep decreases as the RH increases above 40%.
(c)
As the effective thickness or volume to surface ratio increases, the rate at which creep develops decreases.
(d)
Concretes with a high paste content creep more that concretes with a large aggregate fraction because only the paste creeps.
