## Stress increments in prestressed concrete beams

The two main Australian Standards covering prestressed concrete structures (AS 3600, Concrete Structures, and AS 5100 Part 5, Concrete Bridges) put a limit on the allowable increase in stress in reinforcement and prestressing strands and tendons, when the load increases from … Continue reading

## RC Design Functions 7.03

The latest update to my RC Design Functions spreadsheet has just been uploaded, and is available for free download (including full open-source code) from: RC Design Functions7.zip The main new feature in the latest version is a new RCInteract function, which generates an … Continue reading

## Non-linear frame analysis; moment curvature and self-weight

The Python/Fortran/Excel frame analysis program (previous version here) now has several new features added to the 2D-solver routines: The beam bending behaviour may now be specified with moment-curvature tables, rather than the linear-plastic behaviour required in the previous version. Beam … Continue reading

## Automating Goal Seek with RC Design Functions

As promised in the previous post, I will now look in more detail at the process for automating the Excel Goal Seek function with the RC Design Functions spreadsheet, to calculate reinforcement area or section depth for a range of bending … Continue reading
