Design of singly reinforced beam

Design of singly reinforced beam

The aim of design of  singly reinforced beam is to decide the size or dimensions of the beam and provide suitable reinforcement. The section designed should perform safely during its life time. Beam is a flexural member which resists loads mainly by bending. design of Singly reinforced beams have steel reinfocement in the tension zone but in doubly reinforced beams steel reinforcement is provided in the tension as well as compression zone.

The design of following beams is explained.

  • Singly reinforced rectangular simply supported beams.
  • Cantilever beams.
  • Lintels.

In designing R.C.C. beams, some basic rules are to be followed which are given in IS 456:2000 and are explained in subsequent articles.
