design of rc structure

posted by .

1. Discuss the salient feature of working stress methods and ultimate load method?

  • design of rc structure -

    Here are some ideas to investigate and comment.

    Working stress is generally more conservative.
    It does not take into account of the post-yield behaviour of the reinforcing steel.


    Ultimate stress caters to both strenth and serviceability requirements separately.
    If properly designed, will ensure gradual failure instead of sudden failure by under-reinforcing.
