INTRODUCTION

The whole information conveyed in this book has been planned and written for proper understanding of structural detailing of a building.

The approach in this book is to provide the readers sound and basic knowledge in structural detailing in a building. Consequently, I have given more details than is normally given in a book concerning detailing of structural members, which include slabs, beam, stairway and column.

This book will also provide some bases as a prerequisite in detailing worth of a small residential building.

All the works t o be carried out, as regard to this field are mostly, the work of a structural engineer throughout the end of the project.

STRUCTURAL SYMBOLS AND NOTATION

 

The abbreviation recommended for structural detailing works are as follow:

a.

R.C.                 =          Reinforced concerts

Drg                  =          Drawing

Hor                  =          Horizontal

Vert                 =          Vertical

Pia                   =          Diameter

Fdn                  =          Foundation

Conc                =          Concrete

C.B                  =          Column Base

  1. TYPES OF REINFORCEMENT

R                     =          Mild steel

T or Y  =          High yield steel

  1. COMMENTS RELATING TO REINFORCEMENT

C         =          Centre line

B         =          Bottom

T          =          Top

C/c       =          Centre to centre

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

In other to provide information to contractors in a construction industry for works to be carried out on sites, drawings are produce, which serves as means of communication are used by designers in every engineering specters.

For those reason, the works are mostly work of a structural engineer to design a construction of structure for sheltering to be completed, such as road, bridges, railways, dams, buildings and other relevant construction work. Sketches of these works are prepared by free hand, then these sketches are  put together into a clear and well presented working drawing used by the builders and contractors for implementation after taken of the particular drawing to the specified authorities for approval.

All detailing works developed by the structural engineer (the detailer) serves as a good prerequisite of standing the risk of sudden collapse of building or structural failure of a building members. It also helps to avoid unnecessary delay of works which may come up doubt, and frequent clarification.

The methods ad techniques involved for detailing reinforced concrete structures are shown in this project.
