## Study Notes

### Analysis of T-Beams (USD)

- STEP 3: Check if steel reinforcements yield:
`fs = 600`

and`φ = 0.65 + 0.25`

in the transition region - STEP 4: Determine the reduction factor:
`φ = 0.65 + 0.25`

if`fy < fs < 1000`

or`εy < εs < 0.005`

- STEP 5: Determine the moment capacity:
`Mu = φ(C or T) d - a/2`

### Analysis of Rectangular Beams (USD)

- Derivation of formulas using stress-strain diagram:
- From the strain diagram:
`(εc / c) = (εs / d-c)`

- From the stress diagram:
`C = T`

and`fs = 600`

- From the strain diagram:
- Simplified formulas:
`fs = 600`

and`φ = 0.8528`

### Effective Flange Width (NSCP 2015)

- Formula:
`bf = bw + 16tf`

or`bf = bw + (s1^2 + s2^2) / 2`

or`bf = bw + Ln/4`

- Where:
`bw`

is the base of the web,`bf`

is the base of the flange,`tf`

is the flange thickness,`s1`

and`s2`

are the spacings of the beam web, and`Ln`

is the clear beam length
