A calculation note is a document containing the calculations necessary for the design of the works.

In a calculation note there are several parts:

-the presentation of the work.

-the calculation hypotheses on the materials and the standards in force. One can find for example in this part the constructive provisions in terms of reinforcement

-the loads taken into account for the calculation of the structure.

-sizing and checks, element by element

-a plan or final sketch of the structure, also called plan of reinforcement.


It goes without saying that the content of the calculation note will differ depending on the structure concerned by this calculation note :

-metal work with sizing and verification of assemblies

-ouvrage en béton armé
