6 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area Procedure of Issuing a Code Formation of a standing committee from professionals, researchers and university staff members. The standing committee is concerned with the scope, the framework and the development of the code. Subcommittees meet to exchange ideas and discuss issues related to the development of the various areas. They make use of other related international codes, international and national research work and local experience of their members.
7 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area Procedure of Issuing a Code (Cont.) The outcome of the efforts of the subcommittees is a draft of the code that is forward to those who are interested (professionals researchers university staff members). A workshop is held to discuss the results of reviewing the draft of the code. A final copy is prepared and officially issued. The code is updated every five years.
8 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area Why we are here To work together towards common interests. To communicate easier and properly Start the process and keep working
9 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area Contracts To go to the international 4 contracts: with ICCF to enhance the code enforcement system in Egypt With IAS to accredit our laboratories With ICC to adopt a system for training inspectors With ICC also to certificate inspectors
10 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area EUROCODES 1 Scope The Egyptian Code for the Calculation of Loads and Forces in Structural and Masonry Works 2 3 Permanent loads Definitions, notation and expressions 4 Contents 5 Loads on buildings 6 Loads on highway bridges Loads on railway bridges 7 Wind loads on buildings and structures 8 Seismic loads on buildings 9 Seismic loads on bridges
11 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area EUROCODES The provisions of calculations of the seismic effects on buildings and bridges in the Egyptian Code for the Calculation of Loads and Forces on Structural and Masonry Works have been completely revised in the 2001 version. They follow the Eurocode 8 General rules and seismic actions. The Egyptian Code for the Calculation of Loads and Forces in Structural and Masonry Works
12 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area
13 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area EUROCODES The Egyptian Code for the Calculation of Loads and Forces in Structural and Masonry Works Seismic Zones Egypt is subdivided into five seismic zones as follows: -The first zone : ground acceleration = 0.1g -The second zone: ground acceleration = 0.125g - The third zone : ground acceleration = 0.15g - The fourth zone : ground acceleration = 0.2g - The Fifth zone : divided into two zones: zone 5 - a ground acceleration = 0.20g g zone 5 - b ground acceleration = 0.25g g
14 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area EUROCODES The Egyptian Code for the Calculation of Loads and Forces in Structural and Masonry Works The calculation of the seismic effects depends on the expected structural performance during an earthquake. The balance between the strength of the structure and its ductility is characterized by the values of the response modification factor ( R ). The code provides values for (R) depends on the chosen lateral load resisting elements. These values are slightly different than those mentioned in the Eurocode- 8.
15 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area EUROCODES The Egyptian Code for the Calculation of Loads and Forces in Structural and Masonry Works Depending on the structural characteristics of the building, one of the following methods may be used for calculating seismic effects: Equivalent static Method (Simplified modal response spectrum method) for buildings meeting the regularity criteria Multi-Modal response spectrum method For all types of buildings Alternative methods Time History Analysis
16 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area 1 Scope and design principles The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Concrete Structures 2 Materials and mixes of reinforced and prestressed concrete 3 4 General considerations for the design of sections Contents 5 Limit states design method 6 Analysis of structural elements Elastic (working stress) design method 7 8 Structural details Quality control and assurance 9 Construction 10 Prestress ed concrete
17 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Concrete Structures Provides the minimum requirements to be satisfied for the design and construction of reinforced concrete elements and structures. Is based mainly on the limit states design method. Ultimate strength limit state Instability limit state Serviceability limit state
18 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area Safety provisions when using Limit states design 1- The use of load factors to increase the working loads. 2- The use of material strength reduction factors γ c Strength reduction factor for concrete γ s Strength reduction factor for reinforcing steel γ sp Strength reduction factor for prestressing steel
19 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area Material Strength Reduction Factors Flexure, shear, torsion Concrete strength reduction factor γ c = 1.5 Reinforcing steel reduction factor γ s = 1.15 Compression with or without flexure Concrete strength reduction factor Reinforcing steel reduction factor γ γ c s = = ( e / t) 3 e / t 3 ( )
20 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Concrete Structures It has gone through major change in its 2006 edition where the following modifications were introduced: - A comprehensive section dealing with the earthquake resistant design of RC structures was introduced to cope with the major revision of the Egyptian Code for Calculations of loads on Structures. It follows in many aspects the Eurocode 8 and the Canadian Code. - A section about the application of the Strut-and-Tie Model in the design of RC members and structures was added.
21 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Concrete Structures - The chapter dealing with the design of prestressed concrete was completely revised and partial prestressing was permitted. - The chapter dealing with quality control and quality assurance of reinforced and prestressed concrete was revised.
22 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area 1 Scope and design principles The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Masonry works 2 3 Design of walls and bearing elements Materials and quality control 4 Contents 5 Curtain walls 6 Arches, vaults and domes Nonbearing walls used as partitions 7 Earthquake resistance of masonry works 8 Insulation works 9 Site investigation and construction works
23 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Masonry works The code has been recently updated to promote the use of engineered masonry (structural masonry) in Egypt. Design procedures implemented in this code are based on the working stress design method (elastic theory). The code provides design guidelines for unreinforced as well as reinforced masonry.
24 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Masonry works In seismic zones 4 and 5, unreinforced masonry is not permitted. The code contains many recommendations, especially for seismic design of masonry buildings. Such recommendations are based on the increased awareness and understanding of factors influencing the seismic behavior of masonry structures.
25 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Use of FRP in Construction Fields 1 Scope and design principles 2 Properties of FRP 3 Contents Durability of FRP 4 Strengthening and repair of reinforced concrete structures using FRP 5 Concrete reinforced with FRP bars
26 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Use of FRP in the Construction Fields Egypt took the lead in publishing a code for the use of FRP in construction fields. The Standing committee and the specialized subcommittees make use of the related international codes and guidelines, together with the local experience and the research work carried out in Egypt and abroad. The design principles mentioned in the code are limited to the use of FRP systems for externally strengthening concrete elements.
27 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Use of FRP in the Construction Fields The use of FRP is limited to the cases in which the fibers are subjected to tensile stresses only. The code provides design guidelines for strengthening structural members for: flexure through bonding FRP reinforcement with fibers oriented along the length of the member. shear through bonding FRP reinforcement with fibers oriented normal or inclined to the length of the member It also provides guidelines for increasing the ultimate strength and ductility of columns through providing additional confinement to the cross-section.
28 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Use of FRP in the Construction Fields The design of the strengthening works is carried out using the limit states theory. Material strength reduction factors for concrete and reinforcing steel are those mentioned in the Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Concrete structures. Material strength reduction factors for FRP are taken according to the nature of use, type of failure and the importance of the member (γ f = ).
29 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Use of FRP in the Construction Fields Safety of FRP strengthened structures against fire is based on a design philosophy that suggests the possibility of losing the strengthening system, in addition to some other damages in the structure, in a fire with no possibility of the structure being collapsed.
30 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Steel Structures The current code for the design and construction of steel structures uses the Allowable Stress Design method. In the process of continuous development, HBRC has prepared a new code for the design and construction of steel buildings. The new code is based on limit-states philosophy, including both strength and serviceability criteria, called Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD).
31 in the Euro-Mediterranean Area The Egyptian Code for the Design and Construction of Steel Structures In the new version of the Egyptian code for the Design and Construction of Steel structures the use of either the working stress design method or the LRFD method is permitted. The Egyptian code for the Design and Construction of Steel structures is mostly consistent with the American Code. Some areas are similar to the Eurocode with adjustments to suit the Egyptian practice.
