Concrete Continuous Beams: A Structural Design Challenge

By: Javier Encinas, PE | February 14, 2016 ASDIP CONCRETE includes the design of continuous beams. This structural engineering software is based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. This article covers the steps in the structural design of concrete continuous multi-span beams subjected to concentrated and distributed loads. Beams are structural elements that support loads applied transversely to the beam axis, which produce a combination of shear and bending stresses. Concrete beams are usually continuous, this is, they span between multiple supports acting structurally as a single element. This is possible because the rebars are placed continuously through the supports, [...]
