Correct Answer - Option 4 : 0.0035 - 0.7eext

Explanation:

• Maximum compressive strain in case of direct compression in case member subjected to axial compression = 0.002
• Maximum compressive strain in case of bending compression = 0.0035
• The maximum strain at highly compressed extreme fiber in a section subjected to axial compression and bending and when there is no tension in the section is = 0.0035 - 0.75 × strain at least compressed extreme fiber.

Design for the limit state of collapse in flexure shall be based on the assumptions given below:

• Plane sections normal to the axis remain plane after bending.
• The maximum strain in concrete at the outermost compression fiber is taken as 0.0035 in bending.
• For design purposes. the compressive strength of concrete in the structure shall be assumed to be 0.67 times the characteristic strength. The partial safety factor = 1.5 shall be applied in addition to this.
• The tensile strength of the concrete is ignored.
• The stresses in the reinforcement are derived from a representative stress-strain curve for the type of steel used. For design purposes, the partial safety factor equal to 1.15 shall be applied.

• The maximum strain in the tension reinforcement in the section at failure shall not be less than, $0.002 + \frac{{{f_y}}}{{1.15{E_s}}}$
