Title: Landmark Series: Design of Reinforced Concrete Members Under Flexure or Combined Flexure and Direct Compression
Author(s): Charles S. Whitney
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 21-36
Abstract:It is the purpose of this paper to suggest a complete revision of the method of designing reinforced concrete members subjected to bending and to present a rational method for the proportioning of arch ribs, rectangular columns under eccentric load, and rectangular beams. This method may be extended to cover the design of T beams, round columns and any other form of concrete members. Simple formulas are given which predict the ultimate strength with remarkable accuracy based on the cylinder strength of the concrete and the yield point of the steel independent of the ratio of their moduli of elasticity.
