Introduction




Prontuario informatico hormigon 3.1 is a software developed by FHECOR Ingenieros Consultores with the collaboration of professors from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha. It is an adaptation of the previous versions of prontuario informatico del hormigon estructural, which were first presented in the 1980s.


The main objectives of this software are to replace and expand the collections of diagrams and to help students and engineers learn and apply the concepts and methods of concrete structural design. The software is based on the Spanish code EHE-08, which regulates the design, construction and maintenance of concrete structures.


The software is available for free download from the website of Instituto Español del Cemento y sus Aplicaciones (IECA). It is compatible with Windows operating systems and requires Microsoft Excel to run. The installation process is simple and fast, and the user interface is intuitive and easy to navigate.


Basic concepts of concrete structural design




Before using prontuario informatico hormigon 3.1, it is important to have some background knowledge on the basic concepts of concrete structural design. In this section, we will briefly review some of these concepts.


Concrete is a composite material made of cement, water, aggregates and admixtures. It has high compressive strength but low tensile strength, which means it can resist loads that tend to squeeze it but not those that tend to stretch it. To overcome this limitation, concrete is usually reinforced with steel bars or wires that can carry tensile forces.


Concrete structures can be classified into two main types: reinforced concrete (RC) structures and prestressed concrete (PC) structures. RC structures use passive reinforcement, which means that the steel bars only resist tensile forces after cracks have formed in the concrete. PC structures use active reinforcement, which means that the steel wires are tensioned before or after casting the concrete, creating a compressive stress that reduces or eliminates cracking.


Concrete structures can be used for various applications, such as buildings, bridges, dams, tunnels, foundations, etc. The design of concrete structures involves determining the dimensions, shape, reinforcement and details of each structural element according to the loads, constraints and requirements of each project. The design process must ensure that the structure is safe, serviceable, durable and economical.


How to use prontuario informatico hormigon 3.1




Prontuario informatico hormigon 3.1 is a software that can help you with the analysis, calculation and design of concrete structures according to EHE-08. In this section, we will explain how to use it step by step.


How to create a new project and input data




To start using prontuario informatico hormigon 3.1, you need to create a new project by clicking on the "Nuevo proyecto" button on the main menu. You will be asked to enter some basic information about your project, such as name, description, author, date, etc.


Then, you need to input data for each structural element that you want to analyze or design. You can choose from different types of elements, such as beams, slabs, columns, walls, foundations, etc. For each element, you need to enter its geometry (length, width, height), material properties (concrete class, steel type), loads (permanent, variable), reinforcement (area, diameter), etc.


You can input data manually by typing in values or selecting options from drop-down menus or buttons. You can also import data from Excel files by clicking on the "Importar datos" button on each element's window. You can also copy data from one element to another by clicking on the "Copiar datos" button.


How to perform analysis, calculation and design of concrete structures




After inputting data for each element that you want to analyze or design, you need to perform analysis, calculation and design by clicking on the "Calcular" button on each element's window. The software will perform different types of analysis, calculation and design depending on the type of element, such as:


  • Bending analysis, calculation and design for beams



  • Solid slab analysis, calculation and design for slabs



  • Punching shear analysis, calculation and design for slabs



  • Axial load analysis, calculation and design for columns



  • Biaxial bending analysis, calculation and design for columns



  • Shear wall analysis, calculation and design for walls



  • Bearing capacity analysis, calculation and design for foundations



  • Etc.



The software will apply the methods, criteria and formulas specified in EHE-08 for each type of analysis, calculation and design. The software will also check the compliance with the limit states of safety, serviceability, durability and fire resistance.


How to interpret and export results and reports




After performing analysis, calculation and design for each element, you can view the results and reports by clicking on the "Resultados" button on each element's window. You will see different types of results and reports depending on the type of element, such as:


  • Bending moment diagrams, shear force diagrams, deflection diagrams for beams



  • Solid slab diagrams, stress contour plots, reinforcement distribution plots for slabs



  • Punching shear diagrams, critical perimeter plots, reinforcement detail plots for slabs



  • Axial load diagrams, interaction diagrams, reinforcement detail plots for columns



  • Biaxial bending diagrams, interaction surfaces, reinforcement detail plots for columns



  • Shear wall diagrams, stress contour plots, reinforcement distribution plots for walls



  • Bearing capacity diagrams, settlement plots, reinforcement detail plots for foundations



  • Etc.



You can zoom in or out, pan or rotate the diagrams or plots by using your mouse or keyboard commands. the scale, color or style of the diagrams or plots by clicking on the "Opciones" button on each element's window. You can export the results and reports to Excel files by clicking on the "Exportar resultados" button on each element's window. You can also print the results and reports by clicking on the "Imprimir resultados" button on each element's window.
