## Parabolas, Rectangles, Triangles & Snakes (Part 5)

Part 5 – Centroids, More Integrals…. In the last post we went through a process to find a general force integral which involved knowing the width and height of the stress block in terms of how far from the neutral axis depth you are. Then by using numerical integration methods we would be able to calculate the concrete force by evaluating this integral. Note that except for certain cases like a constant stress or constant width I don’t think you…
