Hi everyone,

 

I would like to Know how what is the expression of Eurocode, that the Robot use to calculate the minimum reinforcement of the foundation.

 

 

Thank you, best regards:

Ricardo Moreira (Portugal)

Hi,

I don't know what  kind of criterion Robot uses but Eurocode 8 prescribes minimum reinforcement only for beams and not for the footings for which local ductility is not required. See attached Page.

If the results from the minimum value that the answer is as follows:
We accept that the elements are reinforced ones.

Due to the limitation of damage to fragile bent elements the condition (9.2.1.1-beams, 9.3.1.1 - boards) is always used:

 

AsMin = 0.26 * (fctm / fyk) * b * d

 

When grown fck then fctm grows too.

Also the minimum reinforcement grows with it.

Thank you,

 

 

 When we define a load in "RC_Foundation design" with nature of design the programm don't use this expression "AsMin = 0.26 * (fctm / fyk) * b * d" to calculate the minimum reinforcement. It´s possible to change it ?

This condition is SLS oriented one.

In case of Design load only ULS state check is done and other formulas taken as reference.

I don't understand this answer, and I have similar problem.

 

For my spread footing, Robot calculates minimum reinforcement as 4,17cm2/m' for bottom zone, and 3,14cm'/m' for top.

 

According to EN 1992-1-1, this values should be calculated as:

As,min = 0.0013⋅bt⋅d = 0.0013⋅100⋅44 = 5.72 cm2

or 

As,min = 0.26⋅(fctm/fyk)⋅bt⋅d = 0.26⋅0.22/50.00⋅100⋅44 = 5.03 cm2

whichever is greater.

 

??

 

Question is simple: Which expression Robot uses to calculate minimum reinforcement of the spread footing?
