Description: This resourse is a third part of a Reinforced Concrete - Working Stress lecture, which last aprroximately 50 minutes. The lecture discusses the behavior of the beam at failure (mode of failure), which is determined by the relative amount of steel present - measured by ρ. It introduces internal couple method in analysis and gives details and examples of flexure design.
Keywords: concrete • steel • reinforcement • working stress design • WSD • section • steel percentage • internal couple method • flexure design • cement
