… and prestressed concrete sections.
Today’s download installment covers spreadsheets for design of reinforced and prestressed concrete beams and columns at the Serviceability Limit State (SLS). The spreadsheets cover design of rectangular and circular sections, sections made up of any number of trapezoidal layers, and composite beams constructed in two stages. The spreadsheets for rectangular and circular sections also cover design at the Ultimate Limit State (ULS). Spreadsheets for ULS design of non-rectangular sections will be listed tomorrow.
The RC Design Functions spreadsheet provides functions for rectangular and circular sections It is described at:
More details of using the included functions are given at:

For non-rectangular sections use Beam Design Functions, described at:
Functions for design of composite sections are provided in two files, one using the Excel Goal-Seek function, and the other using a (much faster) VBA based solver:
Example input and output from the spreadsheets is shown below, but download for a good look at all the functions available:
