A design procedure is presented which makes it possible to find the required reinforcing steel for bending with the ultimate strength method by means of a direct and iterative approach without the use of nomographs. The first approxi-mation is as easily obtained as when using the working stress method and in all practical cases only one corrective itera-tion is necessary.
