Eurocode 2 ULS design of rectangular reinforced concrete cross-section for bending and axial force

Description:
ULS design of rectangular reinforced concrete cross-section for bending and axial force (calculation of required reinforcement for given bending moment / axial force, maximum moment resistance MRd for given axial force, or complete M-N interaction diagram for given reinforcement layout)
According to:
EN 1992-1-1:2004+AC2:2010 Section 6.1
Applicable for:
Uniaxial bending
Supported National Annexes:

MPa
e.g. 30 MPa for concrete class C30/37. For a list of concrete classes see Table of Concrete Design Properties
MPa
The elastic-perfectly plastic model (no hardening) is permitted in EN1992-1-1 §3.2.7(2) with unlimited strain. A strain limit of 75‰ is consider in this calculation for numerical reasons. Alternatively stress-strain laws with hardening and limited strains may be considered according to the ductility classes A, B or C specified in EN1992-1-1 Annex C.

Initial reinforcement: When the required reinforcement is requested the initial reinforcement will be modified accordingly.

Enter 0 to disable the bottom reinforcement layer

Enter 0 to disable the top reinforcement layer
mm
m
Distance from bar centroid of top reinforcement layer to concrete edge

Enter 0 to disable the side reinforcement layer

Distance from bar centroid of top reinforcement layer to concrete edge

kNm
The design value of the bending moment for which the required reinforcemet will be determined
kN
The design value of the axial force for which the maximum bending moment resistance of the cross-section will be calculated
The specified layers will be modified proportionally by multiplication by the same factor. The rest of the layers will remain unchanged.
