Computer Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Members and Foundations

The paper describes a general analysis of stress in short, reinforced concrete members having any shape in cross section and subject to any combination of bending moments and axial load. Soil pressures under spread footings may also be determined. All materials are assumed to behave elastically when in compression but only the steel reinforcement can carry tension. Stability, torsion and shear are not considered. The analysis is iterative and can be carried to any required accuracy. The means of programming the analysis for a computer are described and the use of an existing program is illustrated. D.G. Alcock
