GITAM University Steel Structures I Syllabus
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
