Reinforced concrete construction

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the development and use of a computer program to perform an automated structural design of two dimensional static concrete structural systems. The structural systems considered herein are composed of reinforced concrete beams and columns connected by rigid joints. Structural systems composed of large numbers of joints and members may be analyzed by using the developed program. The paper presents the development of the structural analysis using the displacement method and matrix techniques and the development of the concrete axial-moment interaction criteria. This criteria is based on the ultimate strength design using the 1971 ACI Building Code requirements. A detailed sample problem of a four story concrete building structure is presented. The sample problem gives the details of computer program input and output. The presented computer program is written FORTRAN language.
