## Solving non-linear equations with two or more unknowns – 5

This will be the last of the series on solving non-linear equations (for now). Up until now all the examples have had two unknown values, and two target values. This can be extended by making three changes to the code: … Continue reading

## Solving non-linear equations with two or more unknowns – 3

For the next stage of the non-linear solver saga I am looking at the same problem as in the previous post (finding the curvature or a reinforced concrete section under specified bending moment and axial load), but with more realistic … Continue reading

## Tension Stiffening

Tension Stiffening in reinforced concrete is the increase in stiffness of a cracked member due to the development of tensile stresses in the concrete between the cracks. The main application of tension stiffening theory in design applications is in the … Continue reading

## Reinforced Concrete Moment-Curvature – 1

The flexural curvature of any beam composed of material with linear elastic behaviour, subject to a bending moment, M, is given by: C = M / EI where E is the elastic modulus of the beam, and I is its … Continue reading
