# 9.2.6.2 State I (uncracked)

#### State I (uncracked)

When determining the cross-section properties, we take the available steel area into account. The missing area of concrete in the zone of rebars is neglected. Recalculating the centroid of the ideal cross-section is not necessary because the reinforcement is symmetric with the same edge distances on top and bottom side.

The following distances for the Steiner component (parallel axis theorem) are the direct result:

• ac = 0 cm
• as1 = 8 − 2.5 = 5.5 cm
• as2 = 5.5 cm

Ideal cross-section area

Crack moment Mcr

We assume that the cross-section cracks when the tensile strength fctm in the most external fiber is reached.
