Title: Capacities of Rectangular Section by Working Stress Design

Author(s): R. H. Olson and 0. J. Stepanek

Publication: Journal Proceedings

Volume: 62

Issue: 11

Appears on pages(s): 1441-1450

Keywords: beam, design, rectangular beam, working stress

DOI: 10.14359/7755

Presents tables to aid in the design of beams with and without compressive reinforcement. Tables give resisting moments for rectangular sections 12 in. wide, resisting moments for 1 sq in. of compressive reinforcement, and shear capacities for effective depth of 2 to 64 in., concrete compressive strengths of 3000, 4000, and 5000 psi and distances from the extreme compression fiber of 2 and 2-l /2 in. Examples are given to illustrate the use of the tables. The procedure can be applied to the design of T-sections under certain conditions.
