1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1) The slab shown forms a walkway between buildings in a new hospital complex (Please consider it as the sketch below). ________________________________360 ^| A...................780................|^B Determine the values of: a) the maximum applied internal bending moment b) the maximum value of the applied shear force V Characteristic permanent actions: c) allow for the self weight of the deck slab d) allow for 50mm screed e) finishes 1 kN/m^2 - no partitions Question 2 a) An internal 450mm square column is to be provided with 25mm diameter vertical bars and 10mm diameter links, maximum size of aggregate is 40mm. Exposure is class XC1, concrete strength is C30/37 and required fire resistance is 3hours. Assuming a load reduction factor of 0.7, what is the nominal cover (mm)? [23marks] b) The ground floor slab of an office development is cast on blinding and has a concrete strength class of C32/40. It is exposed to moderate humidity and chlorides. Maximum aggregate size is 20mm and bar size is 16mm. What is the recommended nominal cover? (there is no need to check fire resistance for this question b). The attempt at a solution Please refer to my answers in the attached .pdf I will appreciate your help for this of my first post at PF. Thank you.
