## How to identify if the section of the specified beam will crack or not

This construction video tutorial provides detailed guidelines on the process to know if the beam section will crack or not? To figure out this, you have to measure the cracking moment and then compare the cracking moment with the internal moment resulting from external load. In this video, a cantilever beam is utilized with modulus […]

## HOW BEAM COLUMN JOINTS RESISTS EARTHQUAKES?

WHY BEAM-COLUMN JOINTS ARE SPECIAL In RC buildings, portions of columns that are common to beams at their intersections are called beam-column joints (Figure 1). Since their constituent materials have limited strengths, the joints have limited force carrying capacity. When forces larger than these are applied during earthquakes, joints are severely damaged. Repairing damaged joints […]

## What we mean by Coupling Beam ?

Coupling BEAM Definition Coupling beam is an important member of the lateral force resisting system in a structure. Consequently It couples or combines the two independent systems like shear walls. WHY WE PROVIDE COUPLING BEAM ? For example, Let’s assume there are two buckets, one is completely filled with water whereas other is half filled. […]

## Manual Beam Design

BEAM  DESIGN 1.DATA L=3000mm Dead  load=6KN/m Live Load=8KN/m Finished load=0.75KN/m Wall Support=230Mm Concrete grade=M20, Steel grade=fe415 2.EFFECTIVE SPAN OF BEAM: Effective Span =c/c of support = 3230 mm 3.SIZE OF BEAM: Effective depth=Span/12 =269.16mm , Say 270mm Breadth=1/2d  =135mm Clear cover=25mm,Use 16 mm ø D=303 mm, Say 310 mm D=310mm d = 277mm, Say 280mm […]

## Brief demonstration on steel overlapping in Beam & Column

his construction video demonstrates the detailed process for steel overlapping in beam and column. In beam overlapping, one steel is used with other. Here, overlapping is calculated with 40 D for beam and 24 D for column. D denotes the dia of the steel bars which are utilized in a beam. The dia of beam […]

## Beam Detailing in Continues and Cantilever – Image Presentation

Beam is the element which carries transverse external loads that cause bending moment, shear forces and in some cases torsion. Concrete is the most often used in the construction and it’s strong in compression and very weak in tension. Steel reinforcement is used to take up tensile stresses in reinforced concrete beams. Mild steel bars or Deformed or High […]

## Learn The Ways To Use Fixed Beam Bending Moment Calculator

This free online calculator is developed to provide a software tool for calculation of Fixed-end Moments (FEM) , and Shear Force at any section of fixed-ended beam subjected to point load, uniformly distributed load, varying load and applied moments. Lessons to use Fixed Beam Calculator: Sign convention The loads which are moving to upper direction […]

## Very useful construction tips to design a rectangular beam

This construction video sifts through the phases which are essential to create the design of a rectangular beam. The total steps are divided as follow :- The first step – Process for detecting the depth of beam :- The Formula for Depth of beam is = l/16 (Here l stands for the length or span […]

## Great Amount of Exemples for Needed Beams Formulas

When math is in question people are having a lot of troubles and even rejection. The construction in meanwhile is dealing to all shapes that appears in their projects and are calculation all needed values for their purpose. They use a lot of formulas that people learn at school and probably never or very rare […]

## BEAM OPTIMIZATION

Optimizing long-span girders can save scares resources.  The following are a few conceptual options to optimize girders.  Optimization for a real project requires careful evaluation of alternate options, considering  interdisciplinary aspects along with purely structural ones. 1  Moment diagram, stepped to reflect required resistance along girder 2  Steel girder with plates welded on top of […]
