Continuous Beam Design Example Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | October 17, 2017 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. ASDIP CONCRETE includes the design of multi-span continuous beams based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. The design of continuous beams may become cumbersome and time-consuming, since it involves the analysis of the beam to find the moments and shears, and the application of the Code provisions to design the reinforcement. This document is a step-by-step overview of a design example of a typical continuous beam using ASDIP CONCRETE. As an example, let's consider a continuous beam, [...]
