Beam Design

This section of the tutorial demonstrates how to design and detail continuous concrete beams.

RCDC will automatically look for continuous beam members in the STAAD model and group these as a single physical beam. This way if you have a beam which continuous through columns or one which was sub-divided into STAAD.Pro to facilitate support of a transverse member, it will be designed as a single beam entity in RCDC.

In this example, you will use most of the default values for all designs.
