Building Structural Design - Continous Beams: Flexural Reinforcement
Chapter 3: Reinforced Concrete Slabs and Beams, Part 3
This application calculates bending moments for continuous rectangular or T-shaped beams using ACI coefficients and determines the required number and size of reinforcing bars. Intermediate values calculated include the service and factored loads per unit length of beam, minimum beam width for bottom bars placed in a single layer, and maximum beam width for crack control. The application uses the strength design method of ACI 318-89.
