Case 1 Neutral axis in the flange

NA b = 1600
Ast = 4825
m = 6
d = 1652

b x2 m Ast ( d - x)
=
2
LHS RHS

Solving for x by goal seek

800 x 2 = 27022.723 ( ### - x )

x = 219.9381

RHS-LHS = 0 ( Use goal seek function )

Since x > Df Condition is not satisfied and LA lies in Web

Stress calculation

s st = M
Ast x ( d - x/3)

= 100 E 7
4825 x ( ### - 73 )

= 131.2 Mpa OK

s cbc = 3.60 Mpa OK

Case 2 Neutral axis in the web

b = 1600
NA Df = 150
Ast = 4825
d = 1652
m = 6

b Df ( x - Df ) = m Ast ( d-x)
2
LHS RHS

240000 ( x - 75 ) = 27022.723 x ( 1652 - x )

x = 234.59254

LHS-RHS = 0
Since x > Df Condition is satisfied, LA lies in web

Calculation of exact LA

LA = d - y
3

y = s cbc + 2 s' cbc x Df


s cbc + s ' cbc 3

s'cbc = s cbc ( x - Df )
x
= 0.36 s cbc

y = 63.3 mm

LA = 1588.7 mm

s st = M
