## Reinforced Concrete Section Analysis – with prestress

The simplified reinforced concrete section analysis spreadsheet presented here has been revised to allow the input of a pre-tension stress to either or both layers of reinforcement.  The spreadsheet (including full open source code) can be downloaded from RC Design Functions5. Note … Continue reading
