concrete density = 24 kN/m3,
Brickwall = 2.6 kN/m2, Qk = 4 kN/m2, bw = 200 mm,
h = 500 mm, hf = 150 mm, T = T25,
C = 25 mm
C = T16,
L = T10,
a) Determine the ultimate design load of beam 4/C-D. Use the rough estimate for slab load
distribution.
b) Draw the bending moment and shear force diagrams.
c) Design (as T-beam) the main reinforcements at the mid-span of the beam.
d) Design the shear links.
e) Check the deflection.
f) Check cracking.
