ST7-188.8.131.52 RC Module Verification
This Webnote looks at a simple reinforced concrete beam example using the Plate RC Module and compares the results to design code calculations.
A cross section of 250 mm thick and 600 mm wide
= 32 MPa concrete is reinforced with 4 ( N16 bars with a cover of 30 mm. The aim is to calculate its moment capacity using AS3600-2009 and compare the results with a Strand7 model.
According to Clause 8.1.3,
Assuming that at full capacity the concrete has a stress of
