Design various types of reinforced concrete members with RCM ACI-Builder Software
RCM ACI-Builder Software is a simple tool for structural engineers to design several types of reinforced concrete members with adhering to ACI318M-11 code.
This useful structural engineering software can produce comprehensive design output report involving complete formulas and explanatory figures. This construction program can easily resolve practical issues associated with design. Besides, it can be applied for educational purpose as it facilitates the engineers to gather thorough knowledge on ACI code.
RCM ACI-Builder Software contains the following items:
A. Design of flexural members (Rectangular and T-Shape Sections):
A.1-Ascertain section characteristic under balance case, singly reinforced section & doubly reinforced section.
A.2-Estimate area of steel in accordance with applied moment.
A.3-Estimate moment as per alloted area of steel.
B. Design of Shear under following cases:
B.1- Members based on shear and flexure only.
B.2- Members based on shear and axial compression.
B.3- Members based on shear and significant axial tension.
C. Design of combined shear and torsion under both cases of compatibility and equilibrium torsion.
D. Design of punching for prestressed and non-prestressed members with all column geometry cases: interior, edge & corner columns.
E. Manage current and enduring deflection for beams and slabs.
F. Design of corbels and brackets.
G. Deal with flexural cracking in beams and one-way slabs.
H. Design of pile-caps with most general geometry cases: 2,3,4,5 & Strip-Pile Caps.
I. Design of isolated footings under eccentrically and concentrically case of loading.'
