Mike,
Thanks for sending 11 pages of your “R.C. Column in Biaxial Bending Program” write-up to me. I have reviewed it and it is pretty good. The example on last 3 pages clearly shows the design procedures in dealing with biaxial bending of a concrete beam. I could check and followed most of your numbers easily.
I have a few comments, just for your reference.
PAGE 9:
· To begin with, you assumed Ang. = 45-deg and c = 27.46”. I believe these assumed values have to be adjusted later based on the actual applied loads (Pu, Mux & Muy).
· You used Es = 30,000 ksi. ACI 8.5.2 suggests 29,000 ksi though.
PAGE 11:
· In Table 7, I had a hard time figuring out the meanings of J0, J1, J2, J3, J4, A0 and B0. The final results appear okay to me though.
· In Table 8, Bar #2 Force = 24.16 kips. Don’t you think it should be 1.27 in^2 x (20.47 ksi – 4.25 ksi) = 20.60 kips? Same thing for Bar #5, 1.27 in^2 x (43.65 ksi – 4.25 ksi) = 50.04 kips instead of 51.51 kips?
· You used 0.65 reduction factor. The maximum rebar strain is 0.0024 in/in (Bar #3, Table 8). Since it is more than 0.0020 (ACI 9.3.2.2 & 10.3.3), don’t you think it can be increased to 0.683 [= 0.65 + (0.0024 – 0.002) / (0.005 – 0.002)]?
· The final results: Pn = 1993.4 kips; Mnx = 674.2 k-ft; Mny = 260.6 k-ft. Rotation Angle = atan(Mnx / Mny) = 68.867 deg. Should we readjust the assumed angle of 45 deg until they are equal?
· Eccentricity: ey = Mnx / Pn = 0.338’ and ex = Mny / Pn = 0.131’. e = (ex^2 + ey^2)^0.5 = 0.362’
· Resistance Moment from concrete and rebars, Mr = (Mnx^2 + Mny^2)^0.5 = 722.8 k-ft.
· Applied Moment from Pn, Mn = Pn [e + 9.94” (Figure 9) / 12] = 2373 k-ft. Should we adjusted assumed c value until Mr = Mn?
Hi Thomas,
The concrete section solver we use in ENERCALC's concrete modules is general
in nature and can handle any shape and rebar orientation.
I've got a good 11 page synopsis with example that describes the process
using Greene's Theorem for an exact solution.
The example is for a simple rectangular section rotated at 45 degrees and
may be just what you are looking for.
Please email me directly and I can send the PDF. support(--nospam--at)enercalc.com
Sincerely,
Michael D. Brooks, P.E., S.E.

Hi,******* ****** ******* ******** ******* ******* ******* ***
Does anyone know a good example or any reference material that clearly shows
the calculation of a concrete beam with biaxial bending?
