# GITAM University Reinforced Concrete Structure I Syllabus

UNIT-I:

Loading standards as per IS 875, grades of steel and concrete. Introduction to working stress,

ultimate load and limit state methods. Working stress method: Assumptions. Flexure of RCC beams

of rectangular section. Under reinforced, balanced and over-reinforced sections. Analysis and

design of singly reinforced beams of rectangular sections.

UNIT-II:

Limit state method: Flexure of RCC beams of rectangular section. Under reinforced, balanced and

over-reinforced sections. Analysis and design of singly and doubly reinforced beams of rectangular

sections. Design of T-beams: Effective flange width. Analysis and Design of T-Beams.

UNIT-III:

Shear, Torsion and Bond: Limit state of collapse in shear, types of shear failures, Truss analogy,

shear, span/depth ratio, Calculation of shear stress, types of shear reinforcement, Design for shear in

beams. Analysis for torsional moment in a member. Torsional shear stress in rectangular sections.

Reinforcement for torsion in RC beams. Concept of bond, development length, anchorage.

UNIT-IV:

Design of one-way and two-way slabs (using IS 456): Design of simply supported slabs on four

sides with and without torsional reinforcement at corners. Design of two-way slabs with different

edge conditions (with torsion at corners). IS code provisions.

UNIT-V:

Columns: Short columns, minimum eccentricity, column under axial compression. Analysis and

design of short columns subjected to uniaxial moment. Analysis and design of short columns

subjected to bi-axial moments.
