  2. 2. Aalto University Rak-43.3111 Prestressed and Precast Concrete Structures Homework 1, Principles 9.2.2013 1(1) a) Explain the meaning of following terms: - Pretensioned prestressed concrete structures - Un-bonded and bonded post-tensioned concrete structures b) What kind of material properties of concrete and pre-stressing steel is beneficial for prestressed concrete? c) What kind of risks related to materials can be identified in prestressed concrete structures? d) The figure below shows alternative methods to execute a foundation bolt connection of an un-braced column. After casting and hardening of grout, nuts on top of the baseplate are tightened with a torque moment MT. Shortly after tightening connection is loaded with high bending moment M, large shear force V and relatively small axial compressive force N≈0. How do the different execution methods (a) and (b) affect behavior of the connection (eg, rotational stiffness), when external loads N, M & V are acting on the connection? Hint: Draw a free body diagram of the baseplate. 6 1=Nuts 2=Grout 3=Foundation 4=Foundation bolt 5=Baseplate 6=Loads N, V &M 1 5 2 3 4 (a) (b) Figure 1. a) Nuts below the baseplate are used to level the baseplate and they are left in place before pouring of grout. b) There are no nuts under the baseplate or they are loosened before pouring of grout. Baseplate is leveled with other means. Return to Optima in PDF-format by Friday 1.2.2013.
  3. 3. Aalto University Rak-43.3111 Prestressed and Precast Concrete Structures Homework 2, Working stress design 16.1.2013 1(1) Slab in figure 1 prestressed with pretensionded bonded tendons. Tendons will be released when the age of concrete is t=28d. At time t=29d dead load (g1) starts to effect the structure. At time t=30d concrete section shrinks shown if figure 1. At time t=31d live load (q1) starts to effect the structure.

  5. 5. Aalto University Rak-43.3111 Prestressed and Precast Concrete Structures 6.2.2013 Homework 4, Prestress losses of post-tensioned beam with bonded tendons 1(1) Beam in figure 1 is prestressed with bonded post-tensioned tendons when the age of concrete is t=28d. After post-tensioning duct will be injected with grout. After hardening of grout structure is loaded (t=29…50*365d) with distributed dead load (g1) and distributed live load (q1) (in addition to selfweight). Long term part of the live load is (ψ2).

Information: * Concrete C40/50, Ecm=35GPa, selfweight ρc=25 kN/m3, RH=60%, cement type N * Parabolic tendon geometry u(x) = ax2+bx+c * Prestressing steel 1500/1770: Ep=195GPa, fp0,1k=1500 MPa, fpk=1770 MPa, εuk=3% and Relaxation class 2 (small relaxation) ρ1000=2,5%. * Diameter of duct D=60mm * Initial stress (force of jack/area of tendons) σ max=1200 MPa. a) Calculate the stress in tendons and stress distribution of the concrete section at midspan immediately after pre-tensioning.

Voluntary additional assignment cc) Calculate the stress in tendons and stress distribution of the concrete section at midspan, at time t=29d, when the quasi permanent combination of actions starts to effect the structure p=∑gi+∑ψ2qi (in addition to prestress force). Tip: Immediate prestress losses due to friction can be calculated with the following information * Losses due to friction in post-tensioned tendons: ΔPμ(x)=P0(1-e-μ(θ+kx)) [EN1992-1-1 5.10.5.2(1) Eq.(5.45)] * θ is the sum of the angular displacements over a distance x * coefficient of friction between the tendon and its duct μ=,25 * unintentional angular displacement for internal tendons (per unit length) k = 0,0150m-1 * slip of tendon δ= 2 mm Tip: Equation that describes the elevation of the tendon along beam x-axis conforming to figure 1. (You can also formulate you own equation to describe the elevation of the tendon to your own coordinate system of choice) u(x)=[(4ep1-2h)/L2]*x2 + [(-4ep1+2h)/L]*x Tip: Loss due to anchorage set is treated in the course textbook [Naaman] chapter 8.17 p.498.

  6. 6. Aalto University Rak-43.3111 Prestressed and Precast Concrete Structures Homework 5, Composite structures 13.2.2013 1(1) Composite structure in figure 1 is prestressed with pre-tensioned bonded tendons (initial prestress σmax=1000MPa). Area of one tendon is 52mm2. Total number of tendons is 6. Span of composite structure is L=5m and supports can be assumed to hinges. Top surface of the hollowcore slab can be assumed to be smooth during casting of topping. Concrete sections near supports may be assumed to remain uncracked until failure. Figure 1. Pre-tensioned hollow core slab and topping. a) Calculate the maximum value of shear stress at the interface between hollow core slab and topping at end of the slab (=at support) due to distributed live load qEd=10 kN/m2 (design value). b) Is the design shear resistance at the interface between hollow core slab and topping adequate? Apply EN 1992-1-1 section 6.2.5 Shear at the interface between concrete cast at different times. Tip: Shear resistance of indented construction joint [EN1992-1-1, §6.2.5) Construction joint in the figure 101 is affected with compressive stress σn and shear stress vEd. Area of reinforcement per unit length that is crossing the interface is ρ. The design value shear resistance at the interface is according to EC2: Reduction factor for concrete cracked in shear (NDP value) • c and μ are factors which depend on the roughness of the interface • fck and fcd are characteristic and design value of concrete correspondingly • fctd and fyd are design values for tension of concrete and reinforcement correspondingly • α is defined in figure 101, and should be limited by 45° < α < 90° • σn is stress per unit area caused by the minimum external normal force across the interface that can act simultaneously with the shear force (positive for compression) Classification of the interface roughness [EN 1992-1-1+AC §6.2.5(2)] c μ Hyvin sileä 0,025-0,10 0,5 Sileä 0,20 0,6 Karhea 0,45 0,7 Vaarnattu 0,50 0,9 Material design values [EN 1992-1-1] Material αcc=0,85 αct=1,0 γc=1,5 γs= γp=1,5 C30/37 fck= 30MPa fcd= 17,0MPa C50/60 fck= 50MPa fcd= 28,3MPa A500HW fyk= 500MPa fyd= 434MPa St1640/1860 fp0,1= 1640MPa fpd= 1426MPa Return to Optima in PDF-format by Friday 1.3.2013. fctd= 1,35MPa fctd= 1,9MPa
  7. 7. Aalto University Rak-43.3111 Prestressed and Precast Concrete Structures Homework 6, Element frame predesign 13.2.2013 1(1) Plan view of shopping center floor is presented in figure 1. Floor consists of hollow core slabs that are supported by lowbeams (WQ-beam). Lowbeams are supported by columns at the intersections of grid lines. Connection between lowbeams and columns is hinged. Floor is affected by dead (g1) and live (q1) loads: g1=3,0 kN/m2 Topping (design thickness 20mm), partitions and suspended load q1=5,0 kN/m2 Shopping areas [EN 1991-1-1, class D2] Partial factor for dead loads γG=1,15 and live loads γQ=1,5. Consequence class CC2 and factor KFI=1 [EN1990] L1=12m L2=7,2m 1= Columns Figure 1. Plan view and section of lowbeam (WQ-beam). [http://www.elementtisuunnittelu.fi/fi/runkorakenteet/palkit/matalapalkit] a) Pre-design the loadbearing components of floor (choose profiles for lowbeam at module C/2-3 and hollow core slabs), so that the lowbeams are spanning in shorter load carrying direction. b) Calculate the deflection at midspan for lowbeam (pre-designed at (a)) for characteristic combination of actions (pc=Σgi+q1+ Σψ0qi+1). c) Pre-design the loadbearing components of floor (choose profiles for lowbeam at module BC/2 and hollow core slabs), so that the lowbeams are spanning in longer load carrying direction. d) Calculate the deflection at midspan for lowbeam (pre-designed at (c)) for characteristic combination of actions. e) To which spanning direction (shorter or longer) would you put the lowbeams, when you consider the composite action (between the lowbeams and hollowcore slabs) and the calculated deflections? And how would you justify the selection of lowbeam carrying direction from the perspective of material costs? Note a, c) Use manufacturers pre-design curves for predesigning of hollow-core-slabs and WQ-beams. HC-slabs: WQ-Beams: http://fsiviewer.taskut.net/Parma/Parma/ontelolaatat/perustukset_ontelolaatat_suunnittelutohje.html http://www.betonika.lt/en/gaminiai-ir-paslaugos/gaminiai/perdangos-plokstes/ http://www.concast.ie/sites/default/files/pdfs/Hollowcore/hollowcore.pdf http://www.stahlton.co.nz/idc/groups/web_stahlton/documents/webcontent/nz_00016547.pdf http://www.ruukki.fi/~/media/Files/Building-solutions-brochures/Ruukki-WQ-beam-manual.pdf Note b, d) Due to simplification you can estimate the deflections by using only WQ-beams flexural rigidity (without considering the composite action). Thickess of the WQ-beam flanges can be assumed to be 30mm. Thickness of the webs may be assumed to be 10mm correspondingly. Return to Optima in PDF-format by Friday 15.3.2013.
