# V. ACI 318-99 Beam and Column Reinforcement

Determine the area of reinforcing steel required for a beam and column in a moment frame.

## Reference

CRSI Handbook and Notes on ACI-318-99.

## Problem

A plane frame is created with such loading as to create 138 Kip-Ft moment on beam and 574 Kip of axial load coupled with above moment on column.

Size of the beam is 10" x 16"and size of the column 14" x 16".

P = 521.32 kip

w = 5.268 kip/ft

L = 20 ft, H = 15 ft

## Comparison

Table 1. Comparison of results
Result Type Theory ACI Notes Theory CRSI Handbook STAAD.Pro Difference
Area of Steel in beam 2.78 in2 X 2.792 in2 negligible
Area of Steel in column X 4.01%

4.09%  required(*)

4.232%  provided

negligible
Note: (*) Area of steel required calculated as 9.164 in2, which is 4.09% of a 14"x16" column.
