What is General Design Requirements Of R.C.C Structure ?

1. To decide suitable arrangement of beams, columns, foundations etc. for the structure on the layout plan.

2. To determine all types of loads and forces to which the structure is likely to be subjected to.

3. To analyze the structure and to calculate, stresses, moments and shears etc. in the members.

4. To work out safe section and area of steel for different members.

5. To provide the calculated area for tensile, compressive, shear or temperature reinforcement in right positions so as to ensure that the stresses remain within permissible limits.

6. To provide sufficient anchorage for all reinforcement, so that the anchorage and bond requirements are fully met.
