GFRP Reinforced Continuous Concrete Beam Design Verification Example using S-LINE, part of Altair S-CONCRETE

S-LINE, part of Altair® S-CONCRETE, supports GFRP-reinforced concrete design for continuous beams. This downloadable PDF document goes over a verification example according to the ACI Code 440.11-22 design code for a simply supported beam with concrete girder supports (modeled as pinned supports).

The rectangular T-Beam design example covers the reinforcement design and detailing for bending moment, shear, and torsion. In addition, this design example covers immediate and net long-term deflection estimates considering concrete cracking, creep, and shrinkage per prescriptive methods described by the ACI CODE-440.11-22.
