Abstract:

This users guide is designed to analyze cross sections of reinforced and nonreinforced concrete as they are subjected to any combination of axial loads and bending. This program is one of the oldest examples of computerized structural analysis. Its versatility in classifying irregular cross sections, bolted baseplates, and unreinforced sections has sustained a demand for it from its origin to the present. The program has been used for numerous applications through manipulation of the ratio r. The phase for differentiation of nonreinforced sections has been implemented to theorize footing pressure and to make stability analyses. The recent revisions can be credited with making output easier to interpret and providing the new capability, graphics output of the geometry and stress equation calculation. The format allows for the output to be separated into a summary page of detailed stress tables. This ratio governs development of the transformed area of reinforcement in compression. It is actually the ratio of the effective modulus of the reinforcement in compression to that of the reinforcement in tension. Keywords CGFAG Concrete General Analysis with Graphics.
