The ZI Method and Its Application for the Calculation of Stress-Strain Parameters of Structural Members
Ipolitas Zidonis. Translated by Gintaras Vaidigas
Zidonis (civil engineering, Siauliai University) presents his integral ZI method for theoretically calculating each individual actual value of the stress-strain parameter in the cross-sections of the structural member subjected to bending moments and axial forces at any stage of loading directly considering the actual properties of materials. Extensive appendices develop formulas for calculating the strength and reinforcement of reinforced concrete beams in a cross-section considering the 5th degree curvilinear Eurocode diagram of concrete stress, and for calculating beam strength in the perpendicular section according to the 3rd degree curvilinear Eurocode stress diagram of compressed concrete.
