RCM ACI-Builder software
RCM ACI-Builder software is a flexible tool gives the structural engineers the ability to design most types of reinforced concrete members according to ACI318M-11 code.
The advantage of this software is generating full detailed design output report with full formulas and illustrative figures,Therefore; RCM not only consider as a flexible tool for practical
design problems, but also it is suitable for educational purposes since it guides the engineers to learn ACI code in depth.
RCM ACI-Builder Design Platform consists of the following Items:
A. Design of flexural members (Rectangular and T-Shape Sections):
A.1-Determine section characteristic under balance case, singly reinforced section & doubly reinforced section.
A.2-Calculate area of steel according to applied moment.
A.3-Calculate moment according to provided area of steel.
B. Design of Shear under following cases:
B.1- Members subject to shear and flexure only.
B.2- Members subject to shear and axial compression.
B.3- Members subject to shear and significant axial tension.
C. Design of combined shear and torsion under both cases of compatibility and equilibrium torsion.
D. Design of punching for prestressed and non-prestressed members with all column geometry cases: interior, edge & corner columns.
E. Control of immediate and long term deflection for beams and slabs.
F. Design of corbels and brackets.
G. Control of flexural cracking in beams and one-way slabs.
H. Design of pile-caps with most general geometry cases: 2,3,4,5 & Strip-Pile Caps.
I. Design of isolated footings under eccentrically and concentrically case of loading.
