    Hi @anilbaral and welcome to strukts forum,

    The above calculations were to focus on the crack width in piles only. However, to calculate the Neutral axix for a circular or rectangular columns, you need to iterate until the Summation of all forces = Zero;

    -0.85*f'c*Ac + Sum(As*fs) + Pu/fi = Zero (Total)

    You can use the following spreadsheet for circular columns: http://strukts.com/design-of-rc-circular-columns-as-per-aci318-08

    Hope the above answers your question 🙂

    Can you please develop an excel sheet to calculate the crack width for circular section under axial tension force (for example circular pile under uplift force or uplift force associated with moment)
