## 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

## When do we need doubly reinforced beams ?

As the name implies doubly reinforced beams means we are providing the reinforcement in both the zones. In the case of a beam the zone is basically compression and tension

## Why do we provide transverse reinforcement in beams?

Transverse reinforcement in beams is provided mainly to resist the shear forces or forces which act in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of reinforced concrete beams. We follow

## Minimum and Maximum reinforcement in beams?

As we have already discussed in the previous port reinforced concrete beam is a composite section made of concrete and reinforcement. In this post you will get the answer of

## Modular ratio in RCC beam design

Let us start with the basic definition of modular ratio. It is the ratio of elasticity modulus of two different materials. For example, let the value of elasticity modulus of
