#### Guide to design of Singly reinforced Sections

**For “Singly reinforced sections” article series, we have covered the following:**

- Basic definitions and formulas
- Understanding stresses and modular ratios
- Assumptions for singly reinforced sections
- Design procedure for Singly reinforced section – I
- Solved Numericals for Singly reinforced beam | Method I
- Design of Singly reinforced sections | Design Method 2
- Solved Numericals for Singly reinforced beam | Method 2
- Moment of Resistance for Singly reinforced sections
- Solved numerical example | Moment of resistance
- Solved numerical example 2 | Guide to singly reinforced sections

**Now we will move on with our discussion on “2nd Design method” for the design of Singly reinforced Sections.**

**We will follow a simple three-step procedure for the design of singly reinforced sections.**

#### Step One:

**Given that:**

- Dimensions of section (b and d)
- Area of tensile steel (Ast)
- Modular ratio (m)

**From the figure above, we can see that the neutral axis is situated at the centre of gravity of a given section. Therefore, the moments of area on either side are equal**.

Therefore, moment of area on compression side = moment of area on tension side

Moment of area on compression side = Area of compression side x distance of c.g. of compression area from N.A.

= (bx).(x/2)

= bx.x/2

#### Step Two:

Moment of area on tension side = equivalent area of concrete x distance of c.g. of tensile steel from N.A.

= (m Ast) x (d-x)

= mAst(d-x)

#### Step three:

Where, mAst = equivalent area of concrete

Therefore, bx.x/2 = mAst (d – x)

hi,this is very helpful sight and I have cleared many douts.I want to know about the designing of the foundation and columns.like assume a area of land and then how to design a foundation and columns(how many column to be needed with dimension) and what type of foundation should be laid.please clear these questions
