      In reality, the span will be marginally longer than the clear span.  Different codes have their own method for determining span; this also varies with materials.  Often span is center to center of supports.   Sometime clear span plus depth of member.  It varies.   Dik

      What is your operating system 3G or RAM seems small... but, your operating system has to accommodate it.  I'm running 32G on Win7 Pro.  The ordinary Win 7 can only use 8G or 16G depending. Home desktop is an Intel i7, running at 4GHz.  HDD is an PCIe m.2 drive.  I'll do a FEM program in minutes whereas  my office desktop will crank away for several hours.   Dik

      A little confused... tensile strength of ??? concrete, PT strand, bond strength of PT strand?  Can you use unbonded tendons?  Is this a slab on grade? and strand at centroid?  What are your pour limitations?  distance? volume? or area?  Lots of unknowns.   Dik

      Check it with limit states design... there is usually an improvement in strength over ASD.  Does the Eurocode allow you to restrict a loading for an area if it's not up to strength?  Does the Eurocode have provision for renovation of existing structures.   Dik

      I hope someone can provide some answer or links as to where I can get the tensile strength of construction. We are doing a Post Tension ABOVE GROUND slab. The slab panel is very large and as to be carried out in 2 pours. For the first pour, starter bars are provided for the second pour. But in PT slab, after the pour, theslab is initially stressed after the first day and then the full stress after 7 days. PT slabs are different from conventional slab. The force P/Area is applied and the joint will debond if it is greater than the tensile bond strength. For construction joint, what  is the bond strength of the 2 nd pour concrete to prevent formation of crack line. The concrete bond to reinf is higher but the CJ crack will occur first.
