M-N-Kappa is a free online moment curvature calculation tool.

.. _M-N-Kappa calculation tool here: http://ritchievink.com/mnkappa/
It is based on the moment curvature analysis method, which is used to determine the
load-deformation behaviour of concrete sections based on non linear material stress-strain
relationships.
A moment curvature diagram shows information about the bending stiffness of reinforced concrete
beams and the amount of nonlinear behaviour of a section. The nonlinear behaviour in reinforced
conrete sections are:
* cracking of the concrete
* yielding of the reinforcement
* plastic deformation of the concrete
* crushing of the concrete
An example of a moment curvature diagram is shown below.
