Question details

Problem 6. A concrete pedestal 250 mm high has a 100mm x 100mm square cross section and is reinforced by five steel rods with a diameter of 14 mm and a yield strength of 690 MN/m2. The concrete has an ultimate compressive strength of 35 MN/m2 What is the largest load F that can be supported without yielding that steel or crushing the concrete? Use a safety factor of 2. How does this compare with the load that could be supported by the pedestal if it had not reinforcing? E,- 207 GN/m2 and E 21 GN/m2 Steel rods 100 mm 100 mm p 250 mm
