Title: Ultimate Strength Design of Rectangular Concrete Members Subiect to Unsymmetrical Bending

Abstract:The procedures of proportioning rectangular reinforced concrete sections subjected to unsymmetrical bending in two directions based on ultimate strength method are formulated and discussed. To simplify design computa-tions, charts are provided for determining dimensions of the equivalent com-pressive stress block after dimensions of the section and the arrangement of the reinforcement are assumed. Thus, t,he stresses in the tensile steel can be checked to verify the validity of the assumed section. The charts can be con-veniently applied to sections subject to unsymmetrical bending with or without compressive force.
