• ideCAD automatically designs concrete beams in accordance with ACI 318-19.


Notation

Ec = modulus of elasticity of concrete, psi
Es = modulus of elasticity of reinforcement, psi
fc' = specified compressive strength of concrete, psi
fy = specified yield strength for nonprestressed reinforcement, psi


Design properties for concrete and reinforcement can be selected to be in accordance with Concrete&Reinforcement Materials. In addition, design properties such as modulus of elasticity for concrete Ec, modulus of elasticity for reinforcement Es, specified compressive strength fc' and specified yield strength for reinforcement fy are available inConcrete&Reinforcement Materials title.
