## AS 3600 and RC Design Functions 8.01

The updated RC Design Functions spreadsheet (presented here) included an updated UMom function to find the ultimate strength of a rectangular section under combined bending and axial load; but I omitted to include the revisions to the alpha2 and Gamma … Continue reading

## More iterative solvers

Following the recent post on using Brent’s Method solvers on an array (Iterative solvers and arrays), here is another example with an engineering related problem. The example is included in the xlScipy3 spreadsheet, which can be downloaded from: xlScipy3.zip The depth … Continue reading

## Units and solvers with Pint and Sympy

Following the previous post I have adapted the units code to use the Pint package, and added a function using the Sympy equation solver, with Pint units. I have applied the functions to finding the depth of neutral axis of a … Continue reading

## Beam geometric non-linear effects

A quick and convenient way to allow for the effect of deformations on the behaviour of beams and columns under axial load is to adjust the beam stiffness matrix, so that the calculated deflections are in equilibrium with the applied … Continue reading

## Cubic splines with jagged data

A cubic spline provides a good approximation to a smooth curve, and alternative versions are available for free download (see Daily Download 22: Splines and Curves, Update to AL-Spline-Matrix, and xlwSciPy 1.09 – update for xlwings 0.10 and Scipy 0.18.1), but if … Continue reading

## Evaluating text with units and finding the neutral axis

A few weeks ago a comment asked for guidance on finding the moment capacity of a reinforced concrete section. This post will look at finding the depth of the neutral axis (NA) in a rectangular section, with a single layer of … Continue reading

## Section Properties with MeshPY, including torsion and warping

I recently discovered robbie van leeuwen’s structural engineering blog, which has an open-source set of Python routines for calculation of section properties, including torsion and warping constants. The program uses the MeshPY Library for generating the finite element meshes required … Continue reading
