INPUT 1

10.1

Introduction

For this unit, reference should be made to Section 2.4, Part 2 of BS8110 regarding the design of torsion reinforcement. This unit is concerned with the design calculations for torsional reinforcement when torsion is of a particular importance. In normal slab-and-beam or framed construction, torsional reinforcement is normally not provided because torsional cracking is adequately controlled by shear reinforcement. This is stated in Clause 2.4.1 of the code.

10.2

When a plain concrete beam is subjected to pure torsion, the torsional moment, T induces shear stresses, which produce tensile stresses at 45 to the longitudinal axis. When the maximum tensile stress reaches the tensile strength of the concrete, diagonal cracks form, which tend to spiral round the beam.

C4301/UNIT10/ 3

10.3

A plain concrete beam fails as soon as diagonal cracking occurs. Torsion reinforcement in the form of longitudinal bars and closed links will carry the force resulting from the torsional moments. The longitudinal bars are distributed evenly round the inside perimeter of the links. The truss analogy is used to calculate the shear resistance of the beam. In this analogy, longitudinal bars act as stringers, the legs of the links acting as posts and the concrete between the cracks as the compression diagonals. Refer to Figure 10.2 on the next page.

10.4

Torsional Shear Stress Torsion usually exists in combination with shear stress and bending. It is very rare that torsion acts alone. Therefore when bending reinforcement is required, the longitudinal torsion reinforcement area can be increased. This is done either by providing additional bars or by increasing the bar size. Because of the combination of bending, shear and torsional forces, a greater amount of reinforcement is needed.

10.5

Detailing Requirements As required by Clause 2.4.8 of the code, spacing of links, sv must not exceed the least of x1,

y1 or 200 mm. The links are of the closed type complying 2

C4301/UNIT10/ 9

The longitudinal reinforcement is to be distributed evenly round the inside perimeter of the links. So, the clear distance between these bars is not to exceed 300 mm and there are at least four bars. One on each corner of the links is to be used. All longitudinal torsion bars should extend a distance at least equal to the largest dimension of the section beyond where it ceases to be required. For more information please refer to Clause 2.4.8, 2.4.9.and 2.4.10 of the code. 10.6 Reinforcement for Torsion Torsional reinforcement is required when the torsional shear stress, vt exceed the minimum torsional shear stress, vt,min . Values of vt,min are given in Table 2.3 of the code. In order to ensure that the crushing of concrete will not occur, (v + vt) must not be greater than vtu. vtu is the maximum combined shear stress (shear plus torsion) and is calculated as follows; Vtu = 0.8

f cu or 5 N/mm2

To avoid chipping of the corner of small section, where y1 < 550 mm, vt must

y not exceed vtu v 1 as stated in Clause 2.4.5 of BS 8110. Table 2.4 of BS 550

8110 gives guidelines of providing reinforcement for a combination of shear and torsion as below: v vt,min Nominal shear reinforcement, no torsion reinforcement. Designed shear reinforcement, no torsion reinforcement. v > vt,min Designed torsion reinforcement only.

Design Example

A rectangular beam section is shown in Figure 10.3. It is subjected to a bending moment of 170 kNm, shear force of 160 kN and torsional moment of 10 kNm. If the characteristic strength of concrete and steel reinforcement are fcu = 30 N/mm2 and 460 N/mm2 respectively, calculate the torsion reinforcement required. Note: As required for bending moment was found to be 1100 mm2 and

Asv ! 0.79 from earlier calculations. sv

Asv/sv = 0.79

As = 1100 mm2

Solution

Step 1:

Step 2:

vt =

= 0.56 N/mm2

Step 3:

0.56 > 0.37 (From Table 2.4, BS 8110) Therefore torsion reinforcement is required.

Step 4:
