Question

A rectangular RC beam is simply supported over a span of 8m and carries a dead load of 15kN/m (including self-weight) and an imposed load of 8kN/m. The beam is 250mm wide and has an effective depth of 400mm. Grade 30 concrete is to be used.

**Determine if the beam should be singly reinforced or
doubly reinforced.**

Answer #1

A simply supported rectangular beam of 5m span carries a
characteristic dead, gk (inclusive of the beam’s self-weight) and
imposed, qk, loads of 15 and 7 kN/m respectively.
Given the following data:
Beam: 285mm wide and 500mm high, Reinforcement steel: High
tensile steel, Concrete grade: C30, Exposure condition: Mild and
Fire resistance = 1.5h.
Design the rectangular beam according to BS8110.

A simply supported rectangular concrete beam is 18 in. wide and
has an effective depth of 32 in. The beam supports a factored load
(wu) of 15 kips/ft. on a clear span of 22 ft. The given load
includes the weight of the beam. Use f'c = 4,000 psi. and fy =
60,000 psi.
Over what length of span are stirrups required?
Group of answer choices
8.35 ft.
9.18 ft.
10.26 ft.
Stirrups are not required for this beam.
None...

A simply supported beam spans 20 ft and carries a uniformly
distributed dead load of 0.8 kips/ft including the beam self-weight
and a live load of 2.3 kips/ft. Determine the required plastic
section modulus and select the lightest weight Wshape to carry the
moment. Consider only the limit state of yielding (Zone 1) and use
A992 steel. Design by (a) LRFD and (b) ASD.

A simply supported reinforced concrete beam has a width (b) of
14 inches, and an effective depth (d) of 24 inches. It is
reinforced with 3 # 8 bars. Assume 60-ksi steel and 3000-psi
concrete. Determine the resisting moment (Mr) in ft-k that this
beam can safely sustain.
Problem 2
The beam given in Problem 1 has a span of 21 ft. It is supposed
to carry a uniformly distributed service dead load of 3.7 k/ft, in
addition to its...

A simply supported beam spans 30 ft. and carries a uniformly
distributed dead load of 3.5 kip/ft,excluding the beam self-weight.
Also, in addition, a concentrated dead load of 15 kips and a
concentrated live load of 25kips, both act at the center of a 30 ft
span.Select the lightest-weight W-Shape to carry the load(A992
steel). Use LRFD method.

A rectangular, tension-reinforced beam is to be designed for
dead load of 500 lb/ft plus
self-weight and service live load of 1200 lb/ft, with a 22 ft
simple span. Material strengths will be fy =
60 ksi and fc・= 3 ksi for steel and concrete, respectively. The
total beam depth must not exceed 16
in. Calculate the required beam width and tensile steel
requirement, using a reinforcement
ratio of 0.60 ρ0.005 . Use ACI load factors and strength reduction
factors....

A simply supported beam is 3 m long. It carries a uniformly
distributed load of 6 kN/m throughout its span and a concentrated
load of 15 kN at a point 2 m from the left support. Assuming that
the beam has a rectangular shape whose width and depth are 150 mm
and 250 mm, respectively. Determine the maximum flexural stress in
MPa developed in the beam.

A simply supported beam of 6m length carries a dead load of 10
kn/m and live load of 8 kn/m. It also support a point dead load of
60Kn at the centre. Using the formula calculate the moment
modification factor.

Problem 3
A reinforced concrete beam is cantilevered over a span of 10 ft.
The beam width is 14”. The beam is supposed to carry a uniformly
distributed service dead load of 1.2 k/ft and a uniformly
distributed service live load of 0.5 k/ft over its entire span. The
dead load includes an allowance for the beam weight. Assume 60- ksi
steel and 4,000-psi concrete.
1.Use the design equations to determine the minimum required
effective depth (d).
2.Select the tensile...
