Beam Support Reactions – How to Calculate Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | July 10, 2019 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. It includes the design of multi-span continuous beams based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. The design of concrete beams involves the calculation of shears and moments for the factored load combinations, and also the calculation of the beam support reactions. This document shows how to calculate the support reactions in a typical concrete beam using ASDIP CONCRETE. Are the support reactions reported graphically? The screen shot below shows a concrete continuous beam subjected to some uniform and concentrated dead [...]

How to Calculate Beam Deflections Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | May 21, 2019 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. It includes the design of continuous beams based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. Beam deflections are sometimes overlooked during the design process, affecting the serviceability of the structure. The calculation of deflections involves the consideration of the cracked properties of the section, and the influence of the reinforcing steel. The design process may become time-consuming, since also the long-term deflection effects should be accounted for. This document is a design overview of the deflections calculation of a typical continuous [...]

How to Use Beam Design Manager in ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | April 30, 2019 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. The new version 4 of this software was released recently. It includes a new feature called "Beam Design Manager". This post is a brief overview of how it works and how to use it to perform the design in less time and boost your productivity. Design of continuous beams The design of continuous beams may be cumbersome and time-consuming. After defining the loads, it's necessary to perform the beam analysis in order to find the shears and moments along the [...]
