Simplified Elastic Design of Uncracked Reinforced Concept Section

NN Osadebe

Abstract


Due to the limitations of the traditional elastic design approach of uncracked section as provided by BS 5337, an alternative design approach is proposed by which the precise depth of the neutral axis and hence the actual area of steel reinforcement are determined for any stipulated value of permissible tensile stress of concrete. The obtained result finds application in elastic flexural design of uncracked section such as required for water-retaining structures.
