Design Example of Steel Beams According to Eurocode 3

Introduction This post deals with the design of simply supported I-beam section subjected to permanent and variable loads according to Eurocode 3. The design involves...

Analysis of Column Loads in a Building By Considering Beam Support Reactions

Introduction In the manual design of reinforced concrete structures, column loads are usually assessed by considering the support reactions from beams they are supporting, or...

Analysis of Continuous Beams with Partially Distributed Load Using Force Method and Clapeyron’s Theorem

For the continuous beam loaded as shown above, it is desired to find the bending moments at the critical points using force method (method...

Analysis of Influence Lines for Beams With Overhangs

The idea of obtaining the static effects of moving loads on structures in terms of support reactions, internal stresses, and deflections is carried out...

Design of Reinforced Concrete Slanted / Raker Beams

Inclined beams (often called raker beams) are often found in structures like pedestrian bridges, ramps, staircases, stadiums, etc. Due to their geometry, these beams...
