D. SP 52 101-03 Column Brief dialog

Design per Russian Concrete code: SP 52 101-03 "Concrete and reinforced concrete structures without prestressing" (СП 52-101-2003 "Бетонные и железобетонные конструкции без предварительного напряжения арматуры").

Note: The Russian Design Codes are only available with the ‘Euro-zone – Eastern Design Codes’ SELECT license.

General tab

SettingDescription
Concrete Select a standard grade from the pull-down list. Specify the cover to the top, bottom and sides of the beams (in mm).
Effective Length Factors Specify the effective length factors to be used in the local y-y and z-z directions.
Partial Safety Factors Specify safety factors to be used in the design for both concrete and steel.
Equations for Circular Columns Select the methodology to be used for calculating the capacity of circular columns: Non-linear theory, SNiP 1984, or SNiP Alternative.

Reinforcement tab

SettingDescription
Main Bar Criteria Specify the strength of steel to be used for the main bars either from the available steel grades or by specifying the steel yield strength to be used (in MPa).  If a user strength is defined, then the appropriate bar bending dimensions need to be specified.

Specify the minimum and maximum bar sizes to be used.

Shear Bar Criteria Specify the strength of steel to be used for the shear reinforcement bars either from the available steel grades or by specifying the steel yield strength to be used (in MPa).  If a user strength is defined, then the appropriate bar bending dimensions need to be specified.

Specify the minimum bar size to be used from 6, 8, 12, 16 or 20.

Note: Unless stated otherwise, the available bar sizes include: 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 25, 32, 40 and 50

Member Loadcases tab

SettingDescription
Available list Contains all primary load cases and load combinations in the STAAD.Pro input file.
Selected list

Load cases and combinations the results of which will be used for the column design when this brief is used in a Design Group.

Tool icon Description
> Adds the load case(s) selected in the Available list to the Selected list.
>> Adds all load cases from the Available list to the Selected list.
< Removes the selected load case(s) from the Selected list.
<< Removes all load case(s) from the Selected list.
Note: By default, no load cases or combinations are selected.
