How To Validate A Structural Concrete Beam With Manual Calculation

This construction video is published by the Autodesk Education Community.

The video shows how manual calculations are used to examine and substantiate a structural concrete beam. Estimation is made for the shear and moment diagrams and comparison is made with the results from Robot.

The computations of moment forces are applied to develop an initial estimate of requisite area of steel for flexure with the use of some rules of thumb.

In conclusion, the design of shear reinforcement is created by adhering to ACI Design Handbook for Design of Structural Reinforced Concrete Elements in Accordance with ACI 318-05.
