Programs for Reinforced Concrete Design

Reinforced concrete design requires a great deal of numerical calculation which by its nature can be quite involved, if not tedious in many instances. During the past few years most of the relevant design codes have been converted to the limit state approach which has undoubtedly further increased the complexity and length of the calculations. Fortunately, the microcomputer is quite capable of carrying out virtually all the necessary calculations with greater speed, more accuracy and improved presentation, thus relieving the engineer of much of the mundane arithmetical work with its continual reference to design charts and complex codes of practice.
