RCC Beam Design By Example and Theory Behind It

RCC Beam Design By Example and Theory Behind It

Reinforced concrete (RCC) beams are structural elements that are designed to carry transverse external loads, such as dead, live, and seismic loads. The design of RCC beams involves the selection of appropriate dimensions, materials, and reinforcements to ensure safety and serviceability of the structure. The following are some of the steps involved in the design…

RCC Beam – The Complete Guide

RCC Beam – The Complete Guide

A RCC beam is a structural member designed to resist bending and shear forces along with  supporting loads. The beam is made of a concrete that has been reinforced with steel bars or mesh, increasing the structure’s tensile strength and enabling it to withstand bending and shear pressures. It stands as a cornerstone of structural…

Live loads – Meaning | Units | Examples | Trucking

Live loads or otherwise called super imposed loads  are one important type of loading. To be considered by the engineer while designing a structure to ensure their safe design.  Loads are the  forces that may cause stresses, deformations, displacement and accelerations on a building. A structure or building component may be subject to various types of loads….

Dead Load in Buildings -Understanding Its Importance and Calculation

Dead Load in Buildings -Understanding Its Importance and Calculation

Forces acting on structures for buildings are known as structural loads. Structures carrying these loads can be classified as vertical loads, horizontal loads and longitudinal loads. The minimum and maximum requirements for each building vary based upon the country and structural code. Design, location, structure, type of material all influence the loads acting on the…
