Reinforced Concrete Building Tutorial in Midas GEN 2015

Reinforced concrete is a composite material in which concrete’s relatively low tensile strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength or ductility.Reinforcing schemes are generally designed to resist tensile stresses in particular regions of the concrete that might cause unacceptable cracking and/or structural failure.

For a strong, ductile and durable construction the reinforcement needs to have the following properties at least: high relative strength; high toleration of tensile strain; good bond to the concrete; irrespective of pH, moisture, and similar factors; thermal compatibility, not causing unacceptable stresses in response to changing temperatures; and durability in the concrete environment, irrespective of corrosion or sustained stress.

The video created by Midas Gen 2015, explains the complete procedure to design a Reinforced concrete building subjected to wind loads, floor loads and seismic loads. These loads results in the moments in the building, hence they have to be taken into account while designing the building.

The video also work on the Response spectrum analysis which provides insight into dynamic behavior by measuring pseudo-spectral acceleration, velocity, or displacement as a function of structural period for a given time history and level of damping, and the P-Delta analysis.

When a model is loaded, it deflects. The deflections in the members of the model may induce secondary moments due to the fact that the ends of the member may no longer be vertical in the deflected position. These secondary effects for members can be accurately approximated through the use of P-Delta analysis.

The videos also gives the knowledge about the designing of beams and columns inside a building and to put parameters
