Presents a method for the development, in a usable form, of data relating axial load, moment ond curvature for reinforced concrete cross sections. The method is such that it does not require extensive simplifying assumptions concerning the stress-strain relationship for the concrete and the reinforcement. The method is applied to several cross sections, and in-formation is presented and discussed concerning the relationship between axial load, moment, and curvature. The effect of several cross-sectional parameters on this relationship is also discussed.
