Abstract:On the basis of the standard theory for reinforced concrete design, methods gave been derived for the direct dimensioning of rectangular sections, with or without compression reinforcement, when subjected to simple bending, eccentric compression or eccentric tension. Two cases are considered: when the depth of the section is fixed and when it is not studied. The solutions developed have been simplified by the use of compressive or tensile forces and cover any vales of fc, fs and n. The curves allow making a variety of designs in a relatively short time and thus help in choosing the most economical or most suitable section.
