Abstract:
This paper presents an analytical method for checking normal stresses in reingforced concrete sections under eccentric forces, without the usual procedure of diiving the section into small strips. A simple solution is also given for the case of simple bending. Both solutions are further simplified by the use of curves and tables, which apply to all arrangements of reinforcement and can be used for almost all practical cases. A procedure has been devised to apply the same methods to the case in which concrete in tensionis is taken into consideration, even though the modulus of elasticity in tension differs from that in compression. Examples are given for both cases.
