  1. Slab on grade

    I have a 100m by 2m slab resting on a river bed and is uniformly distributed. I want to know: 1. How to calculate the moment as its resting on a bed? 2. Do we need to be provide any reinforcement or such slab can be unreinforced? 3. What is the minimim reinforcement for such slab and where to place it? On top, bottom or middle third as stated in many reference books.
  2. CIRCULAR SLAB

    HOW TO DESIGN A CIRCULAR SLAB FOR POINT LOADS MANUALLY? ITS AN UNDERGROUND STRUCTURE WITH TOP SLAB AS CIRCULAR AND I HAVE TO DESIGN IT FOR VEHICLE LOAD. FOUND FORMULAS FOR UDL ON CIRCULAR SLAB BUT NO FORMULAS FOR POINT LOAD.
  3. TUNNEL DESIGN

    OK GREAT. WILL GO THROUGH ALL OF THEM. HOPE THEY HELP. JAZAKALLAH.
  4. TUNNEL DESIGN

    CANT FIND SOLVED EXAMPLES FOR CONCRETE OR STEEL TUNNEL DESIGN. SHARE IF YOU HAVE ANY. OR ANY SAP2000 MODEL OR TUTORIAL SHOWING HOW TO APPLY DIFFERENT TUNNEL LOADS. JAZAKALLAH.

  8. Does anyone have the soft version of Muni Budhu? If not then any other book which describes the pile foundation topic in such detail as in Muni Budhu.
  9. SAGRODS AND SAP2000

    The horizontal members are the ones which will be braced using sag rods. yes its elevation view. We have similar horizontal member at the other side too and the 2 are to be braced using sag rods. Design of sag rods will be similar to that of cables, not sure if SAP2000 can design it accurately or at all, never did it. Or do u have anything on design of rods or cables in SAP2000?
  10. SAGRODS AND SAP2000

    I have a model from a client to review. There are these horizontal members that are having the P-M Ratio value as greater than 1. Showing that the members are over stressed. Now the client asked me to ignore it, as these elements will be braced by the sag-rods but that they cant be modeled on SAP2000. Is it true that we can't model sag-rods on SAP? If yes, then how can I check that whether these sag-rods will reduce the P-M Ratio of these elements to 1 or not?
  11. STAAD FLOOR LOADS

    Yes thanx alot. It was really helpful.
  12. STAAD FLOOR LOADS

    Thats a great explanation. Thanx a lot. But i am wondering as none of the XRANGE & ZRANGE values are different, is it possible that these are 2 different loads applied on same whole floor? Like one is weight of floor and other is that of some equipment or machine load? In that case the XRANGE & ZRANGE values will remain same. Or the floor loads only include the self-weight of the floor itself? Sorry for any stupid question as load defining is much easier in SAP2000 and ETABS.
  13. STAAD FLOOR LOADS

    HERE IS THE INPUT FILE. THE LOADS DEFINED IN DL AS FLOOR LOADS CONFUSED ME. THE SLAB IS 3" THICK. STAAD FILE.txt
  14. STAAD FLOOR LOADS

    Yes I am checking the model. Thought maybe any of you guys know about the floor loads. Also went through the technical manual. didn't get any answer.
  15. STAAD FLOOR LOADS

    Not a regular user of STAAD and I m really confused by the floor loads. The floor is 3" thick RCC slab. How 2 different floor loads have been applied in dead loads as 50 and 122 psf? The pics are also attached. For 3" slab, shouldn't it be 150*3/12=37.5 psf.
