## Reinforced Concrete Moment Curvature – Development over time

I recently noticed that in the RC Design Functions spreadsheet the TimeCurve function had stopped working. The function calculates the development of reinforced concrete section curvature over time, and was previously presented in Reinforced Concrete Moment-Curvature – 3; Restrained Shrinkage and Creep and Reinforced … Continue reading

## Faster Biaxial Bending

The spreadsheet to calculate ultimate moment capacity of a reinforced or prestressed concrete section under combined axial load and biaxial bending, last presented here, has been updated to use the QuadBrent solver, rather than the Excel Goal Seek function, for … Continue reading
