Brief overview of working stress design & its parameters
This article is extracted from an exclusive construction article written by Noel Mades, a renowned civil engineer. The article sheds light on working stress design and its criterions.
It’s a customary method applicable for reinforced concrete design (beams, slabs, columns, footing etc.) where concrete is supposed to be elastic, steel and concrete which act elastically in an organized way where the relationship among loads and stresses is linear.
