Program Overview


This program performs stress calculation(bending, shearing), strength calculation
(bending, shearing), and Mφ calculation (Mc, My0, Mu) for reinforced
concrete steel and reinforced concrete sections with a variety of section
shapes. In addition, the program also performs resistance moment and minimum
area of reinforcement calculations.

[ Calculation Functions ]
 Biaxial bending calculation is possible to any section shape. Also, torsion
constant can be calculated automatically.
 The information of reinforcing bars (location, sectional area) is considered
for each bar, and calculation is performed with faithful regard to bar
arrangement.
 Ultimate moment calculation of carbon fiber sheet lining bridge pier in
conformity with "Highway Public Corporation Design Guidelines Second
Collection" is possible.
 Stress calculation is performed even when the section is made up of steel
plate only. However, in case thickness of the plate exceeds 40mm, allowable
stress is not automatically calculated. Also, allowable stress is not automatically
calculated with consideration on local buckling, ratio of slenderness,
etc..
 Corresponds to limit state design calculation.
 Corresponds to verification function by curvature (φ). Also corresponds
to diagonal tension stress σI calculation and verification.
 Corresponds to Mφ characteristic calculation of steel section. (In case
there is backfill, yield and permission are calculated. / In case there
is no backfill, yield under compression, tensile yield, and permission
are calculated.)
[ Input Functions ]
 Multiple definitions of the same material are possible. For example, multiple
types of concrete, reinforcing bars, prestressed concrete steel, steel
plates, and carbon fibers can be defined in one section.
 Multiple load cases (including combined cases) can be defined in one section.
 Reference standard such as each edition of road specifications can be specified
in one section.
 As in FRAME (3D), optional shape sections can easily be created using template
etc..
[ Output Functions ]
 Auto matically distinguishes uniaxial bending from biaxial bending, and
displays allowable stress.
 Automatically determines whether allowable compressive stress of concrete
is allowable compressive stress due to bending or allowable compressive
stress from generated stress distribution, and displays the allowable value.
 Performs area calculation of interior frames, exterior frames, and floors.
[ Mφ Characteristics ]
 Addition of new types to Mφcharacteristics. (bilinear symmetry type 
normal Takeda / bilinear asymmetry type  Takeda / trilinear symmetry
type  origin oriented type rigin peak oriented type elasticity type
normal Takeda / trilinear asymmetry type  origin oriented type origin
peak oriented type elasticity type Takeda / tetralinear symmetry type
 Takeda type (conforms to 1999 Railway Earthquake Proof Standard) / tetralinear
asymmetry type  Takeda type (conforms to 1999 Railway Earthquake Proof
Standard))
 Addition of My0=Mu option to Mφ characteristics.
