Concrete is strong in compression but weak and unreliable in tension.
Reinforcement is required to resist tension due to moment.
A beam when loads applied,
Concrete at the top resists compression and the steel resists tensionat bottom.
Design is based on the strength of the section calculated from thestress distribution at collapse.(at ultimate condition, not inserviceability conditions)
Therefore beam section design for the ultimate state.
An elastic section analysis is later carried out for checking theserviceability limit states.

Assumptions and stress-strain diagrams
1. The strains in the concrete and reinforcement are derived assuming thatplane sections remain plane;2. The stresses in the concrete in compression are derived using either(a)the design stress-strain curve with
=1.5 or(b)the simplified stress block where the depth of the stress block is 0.9 of thedepth to the neutral axis
Note that in both cases the strain in the concrete at failure is 0.0035;
3. The tensile strength of the concrete is ignored;4. The stresses in the reinforcement are derived using
=1.05.5. Where the section is designed to resist flexure only, the lever arm shouldnot be assumed to be greater than 0.95 of the effective depth.
