This course is the fourth in a series on the topic of reinforced concrete design following the American Concrete Institute's Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-11). Fundamentals of flexural design and analysis of T-shaped cross sections and rectangular beams with tension and compressions reinforcement are presented. Learning Outcomes: Discussion and examples illustrate the behavior, principles, and calculations necessary to * Apply the ACI Code provisions for effective flange width of T-beams * Use the equivalent rectangular stress block to determine the factored moment resistance of a singly reinforced T-beam cross section * Use the equivalent rectangular stress block and the strain diagram to determine the factored moment resistance of a beam cross section with tension and compression reinforcement * Select a target value of net tensile strain and determine the areas of tension and compression reinforcement required to provide the desired moment resistance * Calculate net tensile strain and determine whether the tension reinforcement meets the ACI Code requirements for maximum and minimum reinforcement Target Audience: This course is designed for engineers seeking a presentation of basic principles of reinforced concrete design. Level of material presented is comparable to a senior-level university course. Engineers who are changing focus of their careers or who only occasionally design flexural members will find this course of particular interest.
