Beam Section Data for Design

 

 

Enter the section dimensions including the covers and rebar data for RC beam members to be applied to section design.

 

 

 

From the Main Menu select Design > RC Design > Beam Section Data for Design.

 

 

First, select the members in the model and enter the following data:
 

0-check.jpg Section List

Select the beam sections for design.

ID: Beam section numbers for which section design will be carried out

NAME: Beam Section Names for which section design will be carried out

Bar: When the concrete cover and stirrup data are entered for the beam members being considered for section design, "O" will appear.

Click 0-button(big).jpg to modify the sectional shape and dimensions and display the Section for Design dialog box (refer to "Section for Design").

0-check.jpg Section Data (refer to Note 1)

Display the section data for the beam members.

Shape: Sectional shape of the members

Hc: Height of the section

Bc: Width of the section

bf: Width of the T-section's flange

hf: Thickness of the T-section's flange

0-check.jpg Stirrups Data

Enter the shear reinforcing steel data and covers for the beam member being considered for section design.

Size: Size of shear reinforcing steel

Number: Number of shear reinforcing steel

Dt: Cover distance from the top surface to the center of the main top reinforcing steel (refer to Note 2)

Db: Cover distance from the bottom surface to the center of the main bottom reinforcing steel (refer to Note 2)

cd004.jpg : : Add the newly entered rebar data of the selected section or update the previously entered data.

cd005.jpg :Delete the entered rebar data of the selected section.

cd006.jpg :Do not apply the entered data and close the dialog box

Note 1
The dimensions entered for the analysis model determine the height (Hc) and width (Bc) of the rectangular sections (Shape = Rectangle). In such cases, the sectional shape of the beam members defined in the analysis model must be rectangular. The sectional values (Hc, Bc, bf, hf) entered in the analysis model are applied for T-sections (Shape = Tee). In such cases, the sectional shape of the beam members entered in the analysis model must be a T-shape. Use "Section for Design" to modify the sectional shape or the dimensions (refer to "Section for Design").

Call
From the Main Menu select Design > Section for Design

Note 2
Enter the cover dimensions of the main rebars placed in the outer layers of the beam members. When the covers are not specified, (Dt = 0, Db = 0), section design will not proceed.

Note 3
When the rebar data are repeatedly entered for the same section, the values will be updated to the last values entered.
