1.1 Factor affecting the strength of concrete
Water-cement ratio: for complete hydration
W/C = 0.25 is needed.
Properties and proportions of concrete
constituents: An increase in cement content in the
mix and use well-graded aggregate increase the
strength of concrete. Special admixtures are
usually added to the mix to produce the desired
quality and strength of concrete.

1. Properties of Reinforced Concrete

1.1 Factor affecting the strength of concrete
Method of mixing and curing: concrete mixer,
proper time of mixing, vibrator, curing (moisture
and temperature). The longer period of moist
storage, the greater the strength.

Flexural Analysis
of
Reinforced Concrete Beams

1. Introduction
The analysis and design of a structural
member may be regarded as the process of
selecting the proper materials and determining
the member dimensions such that the design
strength is equal or greater than the required
strength.

2. Design Assumptions
1. Strain in concrete is the same as in reinforcing bars at
the same level, provided that the bond between the steel
2. Strain in concrete is linearly proportional to the distance
from the neutral axis (Fig 2.1).

can be expected depending on the percentage of steel
used in the section.
