(b) Write down all the steps for the design of staging of an overhead tank for vertical and lateral loads.
(c) Design the tank walls of a rectangular water tank 3m x 5m x 2.5 m resting on ground.
5. Attempt any one part of the following :
(a) Simply supported prestressed concrete beam 250 mm x 450 mm is pre-tentioned by 9 wires of 8 mm diameter at an initial stress of 1200 N/mm2 with their centroid located at an eccentricity of 70 mm. Find the total loss of prestress of there is relaxation of 4% of steel stress.
(b) A prestressed concrete beam of rectangular cross – section of 300 mm x 450 mm is carrying a superimposed distributed load of 150 kN/m over an effective span of 5.0 m. The prestressing force is 1500 kN and the tendons are located at 140 mm above the bottom fibre. Draw the distribution of stresses at mid span and end sections at various critical stages of loading.
