Eurocode calculator now available
The first TEDDS Eurocode calculation is now available from CSC. RC column design (EN 1992-1) for designing braced and unbraced, slender and non slender rectangular columns to EN 1992-1: 2004 and the UK National Annex to Eurocode 2 are now obtainable from the TEDDS update service.
The calculation will check the capacity of the specified column against the specified axial load and end moments, produce the interaction diagram about both axes for the specified column and determine the design bending moments for the specified column, axial load and end moments.
The calculation will also consider effects of biaxial bending, while column effective length may be input directly, calculated from end restraint factors, calculated from predetermined end rotational restraint flexibilities, or calculated from the adjoining beam/slab geometry in accordance with PD6687: 2006 – Background paper to the UK National Annexes to BS EN 1992-1.
Minimum cover for bond and fire resistance is determined automatically.
