Ref. Code: NSCP 2001, 5th Edition

BEAM DIMENSIONS

DESIGN PARAMETERS
fc' 30 Mpa compressive strength of concrete

= 0.85-0.05/7(fc'-30) 0.65 (for fc'>30)
Design = 0.85

## Computation of bal: (reinforcement ratio producing balanced strain conditions)

bal = 0.85fc'600/fy(600+fy) = 0.0309793328

## Computation of max: (maximum steel ratio)

max = 0.75bal = 0.0232344996

## Computation of : (reinforcement index)

assume = 90% of max = 0.0209110497
= fy/fc' = 0.2885724852

Computation of Mu1:
Mn1 = fc'bd2(1-0.59) = 775788122.237 N.mm
Mu1 = Mn1 = 698209310.013 N.mm

## Determine if compression reinforcement is necessary: (if M u1 < Mu)

COMPRESSION REINFORCEMENT IS NOT NEEDED PROCEED TO STEP 2 !!!!!

STEP 2 (SINGLY REINFORCED BEAM) (proceed only if compression reinforcement is not needed)
Solve for :

Solve for :
= fc'/fy = 0.0191334591
Solve for As:
As = bd = 3444.0226 mm2

Bars Selection:
try diam. 28 mm
A28 = *d2/4 = 615.752160104 mm2 (area of 28mm bar)
N = As/A28 = 5.5931961994
say 6 pcs
try diam. 25 mm
A25 = *d2/4 = 490.873852123 mm2 (area of 25mm bar)
N = As/A25 = 7.0161053126
say 8 pcs
Use 6-28mm bars

Check ductility:
min = 1.4/fy = 0.0033816425 (minimun steel ratio)
As = 6A28 = 3694.51296062 (actual steel area)

Solve for As1:
As1 = assumed * bd = mm2

## Solve for Mu2:

Mu2 = Mu - Mu1 = N.mm

## Check if compression steel yields:

a = As1fy/0.85fc'b = mm
c = a/ = mm
fs' = 600*(c-d')/c =
COMPRESSION STEEL DOES NOT YIELD !!!!

## if compression steel yields use As' = As2

if compression steel does not yield use As' = As 2fy/fs'
Solve for As2 and As':
As2 = Mu2/fy(d-d') = 0.0000 mm2
As' = As2 = 0.0000 mm2 (compression steel area if compression
As' = As2fy/fs' = mm2 (compression steel area if compression

## Solve for As:

As = As1 + As2 = 0.0000 mm2 (tension steel area)
