Moment t-m -53.44 -8.24 -29.65

Case: I
Deducting the bearing capacity of pile cap as a open footing, vertical loads to be taken by piles
= 80.37 t
Loads on each pile due to vertical load = 5.02 t
Axial load on extreme pile due to moment = 12.62 t
Axial load on second row of pile due to moment = 4.02 t
Resultant compressive force on extreme pile = 21.67 t < 40.00 t O.K.
Resultant tensile force on extreme pile = 0.00 t < 40.00 t O.K.
Resultant compressive force on second row of pile= 17.34 t
Coefficient of friction between concrete and clay = 0.20
Friction resistance of cap = 0.00 t
Horizontal force on each pile = 11.17 t
Moment on each piles = 54.72 t-m

Design of piles:
Length of pile, L = 16 m
Diameter of pile, D = 0.7 m
L/D = 22.86 > 12 Hence the pile is designed as long column.
Least radious of gyration, r = 17.5 cm
Reduction coefficient for reduction of stress values is given as,
cr = (1.25-L/48B) = 0.774
Safe stress are,
Permissible direct compressive stress, σco = 3.87 N/mm2
Permissible flexural compressive stress, σco = 5.16 N/mm2
Permissible Flexural Tensile stress, σst = 154.76 Mpa (in steel)
Maximum compressive stress in concrete = 1.50 N/mm2 < 3.869 N/mm2

VOLUMN-III

Provide minimum area of compression steel @ 1.25 %.


Asc = 4811 mm2
Provide 15 nos. of 25 mm φ bars, giving area of steel = 7363
Check for combined stress:
Percentage area of steel provided, pt = 2.400
p/fck = 0.120
d'/D = 0.091
Pu/fckD2 = 0.088
From chart, Mu/fckD3 = 0.12
and Mu = 82.32 t-m
Working moment, M = 54.88 t-m > 54.72 t-m O.K.
Shear stress due to horizontal force = 0.29 N/mm2
Permissible shear strength of concrete = 0.45 N/mm2 O.K.

Case: C
Axial load on extreme pile due to moment = 27.49 t
Resultant compressive force = 65.07 t < 90.00 t O.K.
Resultant tensile force = 0.00 t < 90.00 t O.K.
Horizontal force on each piles = 6.18 t
Moment on each piles = 30.27 t-m
Pu/fckD2 = 0.100
From chart, Mu/fckD3 = 0.106
and Mu = 72.72 t-m
Working moment, M = 48.48 t-m > 30.27 t-m O.K.
Shear stress due to horizontal force = 0.16 N/mm2
Permissible shear strength of concrete = 0.56 N/mm2 O.K.

Lateral Reinforcement:
Lateral reinforcement should be 0.2% of the gross volume. Using dia. 10 mm ties,
we have the volume of one tie = 145577 mm3
If p be the pitch of the ties in mm, then
Volume of pile per pitch length = 384845 p
Hence equating, we get, p = 189 mm
Hence provide dia 10 mm ties at 160 mm c/c in the main body of the pile.

Design of Pile Cap:


Maximum bending moment in the pile cap due to vertical load,
At center of cap = 312.91 t-m
At face of abutment = 375.77 t-m
Bending moment due to moment on steam = 233.3 t-m
Maximum bending moment = 609.0 t-m
The effective depth required is given by,
dreq = 999 mm
Adopt 1030 mm effective depth and overall depth = 1100 mm
Area of steel required along width of cap = 32466 mm2
Using 25 mm dia. bars, spacing would be 113 mm
Provede 25 mm dia bars @ 120 mm c/c, provided area = 33469 mm2
at both top and bottom.
Distribution reinforcement @ 0.12% = 9900 mm2
Provide 20 mm dia bars @ 150 mm c/c, giving area of stee = 15708 mm2.

Shear force = 413.23 t


Shear stress, tv = 0.53 N/mm2
Percentage area of steel, pt = 0.43 %
Permissible shear strength of concrete, tc = 0.28 N/mm2 < tv
Shear reinforement is required.

Maximum spacing of stirrups, = 189 mm


Provide 10 mm dia 4 legged vertical tirrups @ 160 mm c/c.

Check for punching shear along pier,


Shear force = 269.49 t

tv = 0.13 N/mm2
Punching shear strength, tc = 0.716 N/mm2 > tv Safe.
Check for punching shear along pile,
Shear force = 57.69 t
bo = 5435.0 m
tv = 0.10 N/mm2
