T Shaped Concrete Beam Design

This spreadsheet allows user to design a flanged or T shaped section reinforced concrete beam in accordance with the British Standard BS 8110. This can be used in conjunction with a structural analysis program such as our Beam Analysis Spreadsheet.

The spreadsheet takes user input values for the beam design parameters such as dimensions and concrete strength, and design moments and shear forces to be resisted. These can be obtained from a structural analysis program such as our Beam Analysis Spreadsheet. The spreadsheet also allows the user to calculate redistributed bending moments in accordance with the standards if desired.

The spreadsheet then calculates whether the beam can be analysed as rectangular, or whether it must be designed as a flanged beam. A unique tool is presented to the user showing the position of the neutral axis relative to the section depth. This shows the user the maximum depth at which the beam must be analysed as a flanged beam.

Then the spreadsheet calculates the reinforcement required to resist the design sagging, hogging and shear forces. These are presented in a unique tool allowing the user to instantly analyse the effects of different beam depths without changing the input parameters.

Next the spreadsheet assists the user in designing the bending reinforcement with unique tools showing the user the section depth at which compression reinforcement is required, and showing all the options for reinforcement within the bar spacings specified in the British Standards.

Then the spreadsheet assists the user to design the shear reinforcement with a unique tool showing the user exactly where designed links are required and where minimum links are required along the flanged beam. The user is also presented with  useful tool showing the best options for designing the minimum and designed shear links with vertical bars.

Finally the spreadsheet presents a summary of the final designed flanged beam, with alerts where required  parameters have not been met. The spreadsheet also presents two detail drawings of the designed flanged beam, a section drawing showing to scale the bending reinforcement design, and an elevation detail showing the shear reinforcement design.
