Task A: Design a staff lounge in a college which is having size of L=5.5 m x B=2.5 m and as shown in figure 1. Height of hall is 4 m, which is having the elements of the building like beams, slab and columns. Design calculation by using European code of practices, along with Structural detailing with Grade of concrete C (fck= 30) MPa and Steel (ƒyk=500 MPa) in RCC. Assume any other suitable data if necessary. Consider the Variable load as qk= 5 kN/m2, Unit weight of reinforced concrete as25kN/m3. Depthofbeamscouldbeequalto450mmandbreadthequalto250mmandcolumn dimension are Depth300×width250mm and thickness of slab could be considered as 200mm. Do the following:

  1. Make suitable analysis of the bay in order to calculate the load on slab, beams and then on columns. [10 marks]
  2. Design the slab as it is one-way. [10 marks]
  3. Make suitable calculations for reinforcement (bending + shear)
