## Analysis of T beam working stress method

Learn : Analysis of T beam working stress method : Neutral Axis is Within the Flange (n < Df), Neutral Axis Lies in the Web of the Beam (n >Df) ANALYSIS OF T BEAM Consider the section of a T-beam shown in Fig. 2.14 (a). The analysis of a T-beam comprises of following two cases : (i) Neutral axis is within the flange. (ii) Neutral axis is in the web. Case 1 : Neutral Axis is Within the Flange (n < Df) Equivalent or Transformed Section The equivalent section of the T-beam in terms of concrete is shown in Fig. 2.13 (b). The concrete below the neutral axis is assumed to be cracked and the area of steel is replaced by an equivalent concrete area which is equal to m.Ast. The compression area is rectangular in shape as n < Df. Thus, this flanged beam can be analyzed exactly as…
