Verification of Rectangular RC Cross Section

The cross section is rectangular, unilaterally reinforced and loaded by the bending moment and normal compression force. The program verifies a reinforced concrete section using the method of limit deformation. The maximum allowable strain of concrete in compression is 0.002 - 0.0035. Compression reinforcement is not taken into account.

The computed degree of reinforcement is checked using the following expressions:

where:

Interaction diagram N-M

Usage ratio of concrete cross section subject to the combination of bending moment and normal force is determined as |0L| / |0R|. Where L is load and R is strength with prescribed eccentricity.

Bending without normal force

The cross section is rectangular, reinforced on one side and loaded by the bending moment MSd.

The permissible moment for a given area of reinforcements As reads:

The program further checks whether the location of neutral axis x is less than the limit location of neutral axis xlim given by:

where:

Shear

First, the program computes the ultimate shear strength of concrete VRd1.

where:

If the ultimate shear strength of concrete is exceeded, the ultimate shear strength VRd2 is checked.

where:

Next, the necessary reinforcement area is given by:
