RC Spreadsheets: V4D
The popular RC-spreadsheets package version 4 was issued following the amendment to the UK National Annex to Eurocode 2 in December 2009. These Excel spreadsheets are intended as aids for design to both Eurocode 2 and BS 8110-1:1997.
The current version of RC Spreadsheets is 4D. Version 4D provides updates to Version 4C that reflect developments and improvements particularly with respect to column design as well as applying bug fixes.
What do RC Spreadsheets do?
For the experienced engineer, the spreadsheets allow the rapid production of clear and accurate design calculations. For post-graduates and new engineers they encourage understanding of concrete design and help the gaining of experience by studying 'what if' scenarios. The individual user is able to answer their own questions by chasing through the cells to understand the logic used.
Since their release in January 2000, the RC Spreadsheets have proved to be enormously popular. They are written for engineers by engineers. The original spreadsheets have evolved and been added to and the usefulness and robustness of the product have been enhanced by users feedback. If you have any comments please let us know.
What is included in the update?
There have been significant developments and improvements since the last update in 2018, particularly with respect to TCC13 Punching Shear, TCC15 Cracking with axial tension, and TCC53 Column Design.
The TCC13 punching shear perimeter deduction calculation, due to a hole, has been revised to make it more accurate and the method to input the area of reinforcement has been improved. A TCC13 user guide explaining the changes is in the ADMIN folder. TCC15 Cracking with axial tension has had a complete update to improve its capabilities and a user guide for the update is in the ADMIN folder.
The fire analysis method in TCC53 Column Design has been updated to include an option to carry out checks in accordance with Annex C, in line with the revised EN1992-1-2 published in 2019. Additionally, the updates correct bugs and incorporate feedback from users.
