Design of prestressed concrete beams is based upon two distinct concepts which lead to two design methods known as service load de-sign or working stress design, and ultimate design. In service load design stresses in beam are calculated on basis of

Learn MoreSteps in Beam Design 1. Establish the design loads 2. Analyze the beam 3. Select the preliminary member 4. Evaluate the preliminary design 5. Redesign (if needed) – Repeat the above steps as necessary to achieve a safe and efficient design 6. Design and detail the structural component

Learn More• Step I. Calculate the factored design loads (without self-weight). wU = 1.2 wD + 1.6 wL = 1.42 kips / ft. MU = wu L 2 / 8 = 1.42 x 302 / 8 = 159.75 kip-ft. Step II. Select the lightest section from the AISC Manual design tables. From page of the AISC manual, select W16 x 26 made from 50 ksi steel with φbMp = 166.0 kip-ft. Step III.

Learn MoreAug 12, 2020 · You can use this calculator for either FPS/US Customary units or SI/Metric units. The following assumptions as per ACI (American Concrete Institute) are adopted in developing the Calculator for the strength of RC beam: Ultimate compressive strain in concrete is equal to 0.003. Tensile strength of concrete is ignored.

Learn MoreTo compute the strength of a member using the strength design method of the ACI code requires that two basic conditions need be satisfied: (1) static equilibrium, and (2) compatibility of strains. The following assumptions are made in defining the behavior of a beam member with span-to-depth (Ln/h) ratio greater than 4: 1.

Learn MoreAs in Case 4, the design capacity of the compression zone φMn is not adequate to resist the design moment Mu, that is to say (Mu > φ*Mn). In this case, rebar must be added to the compression zone. The design capacity of the section is based on the force developed in the compression zone with amax. The relationships (1-5) apply.

Learn MoreThe design of concrete beam includes the estimation of cross section dimension and reinforcement area to resist applied loads. There are two approaches for the design of beams. Firstly, begin the design by selecting depth and width of the beam then compute reinforcement area. Secondly, assume reinforcement area, then calculate cross section sizes.
