### Design & Detailing of Beam (Part- 1)

Beam is the generally horizontal reinforced members which transmit the loads (mostly of slab) to columns or to another beam. Design of beam involves sizing and finding the quantity of steel based on requirement of strength and serviceability.

The design of beam is mostly based on bending moment of beam (Calculated based on loading and support conditions). Beam is firstly design for bending moment, followed by design for shear. Then check for Deflection and Crack width are applied for ensuring safe design.

Before proceeding to design of beams, We will discuss about basic like effective span, cover, reinforcement requirements for beam in this module.

A single span beam supported on masonry wall is an example of simple supported beam. This beam deflect toward downward side throughout (thus has Sagging Moment (+ve)) and has zero moment at ends. If beam is casted monolithically with slab, then slab will act as flange and resist the bending moment. If slab is present at both sides, then beam …
