Abstract:
Potential advantages of using electronic spreadsheets in advanced reinforced and prestressed concrete design are presented. The power of this tool is demonstrated through a series of examples, including the moment-curvature relation of reinforced and prestressed concrete beams, the axial load-uniaxial and biaxial bending moment interaction diagram of reinforced concrete sections, and the tendon layout of simply supported beams prestressed with draped or straight tendons.
