dc.descriptionAbstract: The overall objective of this study was to develop a realistic strength design methodology for reinforced concrete hydraulic structures and to devise an accurate and efficient design procedure for implementing these strength design methods. The first phase of this study developed preliminary strength design criteria that will yield designs equivalent to those designed by the working-stress method for hydraulic structures. The results of this first phase study are given in this report. The preliminary strength design criteria have been developed, including load factors and loading combinations, factored base reactions, design strength for reinforcement, distribution of flexural reinforcement, shrinkage and temperature reinforcement, details of reinforcement, control of deflections, maximum tension reinforcement of flexural members, minimum reinforcement of flexural members, provisions for combined flexure and axial load, and shear strengths of various hydraulic structural members. A comprehensive commentary discussing the considerations and background information used in developing the strength design criteria is also included. Examples for designing typical hydraulic structural members using the strength design method are given. A preliminary study on the use of the probabilistic approach to derive the load factors and strength reduction factors for hydraulic structures is presented.-
