Presents a method for analyzing a concrete section for uniaxial moment and thrust. It is based on a fast converging iterative approach by Wessman. It can be done manually under allowable stress design or strength design methods. Irregular shapes can be analyzed and stresses can be calculated. It offers the possibility of economizing and can complement existing design procedures.
