design strength

design strength

1. The load-bearing capacity of a member computed on the basis of the allowable stresses which are assumed in design.
2. The assumed values for the strength of concrete, and the yield stress of steel on which the theoretical ultimate strength of a section is computed.

Prospects for high performance concrete in the Los Angeles Basin have been tempered by the average quality of sand & gravel deposits in southern California, and limited demand for higher than conventional design strength mixes due to past preeminence of structural steel in mid- to high-rise construction.
It will now begin a year of testing to verify its design strength and safety.
Figure 10 shows the relationship between the MOE and MOR of lumber from damaged trees and also shows the design strength value for each species as given by the Japanese Building Standards Act (Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport 2007).
According to the specification for the mixture proportion design of ordinary concrete [15], when the design strength is greater than or equal to 60 MPa, the preparation strength should be calculated according to [f.sub.cu,0] [greater than or equal to] 1.15 [f.sub.cu,k].
Three compressive strengths of 120, 150, and 180 MPa are adopted as design strength of UHPC.
The nominal axial strength or unfactored design strength (PDSM) is the minimum of the nominal axial strengths for flexural/flexural-torsional buckling ([P.sub.ne]), local buckling ([P.sub.n1]), and distortional buckling ([P.sub.nd]), as shown in Eq.(1)
The design strength of the concrete used to fabricate specimens was 21 MPa.
This duration tallies with the point at which the masonry reaches its design strength. The research results of behaviour of masonry and bed joints which are affected by compressive load during the changeable situation are discussed.
Here in Oman usually at 75 -- 80 percent of the design strength, striking of formwork without the risk of damage to the structure is permissible and permitted.
Jamandic's design strength was such that in 2002 Dominic started Brabin & Fitz, which sells a collection of furniture and lighting.
He goes on to say that, "Sharp corner radiuses are often specified for no apparent reason; adding a small fillet radius adds design strength and may reduce your final product cost The sharp corners create a challenge for machining due to tool corner breakdown during machining."
