Title: Simplified Analysis for Thrust and Moment of Concrete Sections
Author(s): Paul W. Reed
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 195-200
Keywords: axial loads; bending moments; columns (supports); compression; eccentricity: reinforced concrete; structural analysis; structural design; tension; ultimate strength method.
Abstract: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.
