Issue Date: 2014
This project focuses on the full design of a one way ribbed slab, two way ribbed slab, Earthquake resisting shear walls and foundations. The dead live and earthquake loads, axial loads, moments and shears were calculated for the whole structure. The columns sizes were based on iterations done on Etabs to optimize the design. They were designed to resist vertical loads only. Steel distribution was also shown for construction purpose. Slabs thicknesses were calculated using the ACI tables and recommendations. The design of reinforced concrete members was done manually, and checked on different software. Calculations are shown in details for all the design sections. Also, shop drawings showing the placing of steel for beams, columns, ribs, and foundations are provided. The sections were also evaluated for their effectiveness and they were checked for their adequacy.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 55).
