Preliminary dimensioning of reinforced concrete sections

Tomislav Kišiček, Ivan Petrić

Abstract

This paper describes a procedure for the development and use of tables for the preliminary design of reinforced concrete elements exposed to bending action, in compliance with appropriate ultimate and serviceability limit state criteria. The use of tables for defining basic dimensions of cross-sectional elements enables designers to avoid the "trial and error" approach, while also ensuring fast and simple preliminary dimensioning as a preparation for the subsequent more detailed design of structural elements.

Keywords
preliminary dimensioning, ultimate limit state, serviceability limit state, preliminary design tables
