## Designing doubly reinforced beam section: An example

To start the design of doubly reinforced beam you should have an idea about this type of section. As the name implies, in this type of beam section, we are

## Design steps for a singly reinforced beam section | IS 456: 2000

Beams play a crucial role in the structural stability and integrity of buildings and infrastructure. As fundamental components of any construction project, beams are responsible for transferring loads and supporting

## What are the detailing specification for a beam section?

A beam is a structural element that is capable of withstanding load primarily by resisting bending. We design beams by limit state method as per IS 456: 2000. We should

## Difference between Beam and Column

In structural engineering we give names to different structural members based on their behaviour under applied load. Beam and column is also two structural members. Check out this post to

## What is neutral axis and what is the limiting depth ?

Let us consider an example where a beam is initially in unstressed position. Now when a uniform bending moment is applied along the length of beam , then the beam

## Designing singly reinforced beam section: An example

Before moving into the design procedure of a R.C.C beams you should be aware about the different types of beams available. There are basically seven types of beam depending upon

## What is the fundamental assumption of flexural theory ?

In the process of analysis and design of a R.C.C sections, there are some few assumption which we use to make the process simple. Some basic assumptions are : Plane

## RCC Beam Design-Basics and Design Philosophy

In this and the following few posts I will be discussing about the design of RCC beam. Definition of a Beam A beam is a structural element that is capable

## Beam: Definition and Classification of beams

In structural engineering we give names to different structural members based on their behavior under applied load. If the primary mode of transfer of load is by bending then the
