Reinforced concrete (RC), a kind of composite material, in which steel is inserted in such a manner that the whole material offers higher tensile strength or ductility. The reinforcement is usually done using steel reinforcing bars.Plain concrete does not easily withstand tensile and shear stresses caused by wind, earthquakes, vibrations, and other forces and is therefore unsuitable in most structural applications.
In order to learn Reinforced Concrete Beamdesigning in a step-to-step way, civilpe.net is providing you the 3 sets of following video tutorial. You can watch the below video to learn the fundamental designing skills of Reinforced Concrete Beam.
In case one need durable, strong and flexible construction work, then reinforcement must provide durability, thermal compatibility, high toleration of tensile strength and best bond to the concreate.
RC beam designing is considered to be the fundamental step to all the civil engineering related projects. There are several advantages of Reinforced Concrete Beam:
- It is capable of building fire resistant structure
- Maintenance cost is low whereas it has long service life
- It is highly economical with structures like Dams
- It yields minimum deflection and many other benefits
There are a number of way we can design Reinforced Concrete Beam. The first method of designing is Working Stress Method. Second method of designing is Strength Design Method. There are many other designing methods that any civil engineer must learn as it keeps you ahead from others.
