Failure modes in reinforced concrete beams are classified into two major types: flexural failure and shear failure. The former occurs when the imposed load exceeds the flexural capacity of the materials of the beam, while the latter occurs due ...

## Cantilevered Beams and Trusses- Uses and Advantages

A cantilever is a rigid structural member such as beam fixed at one end to a commonly vertical support from which it protrudes. It can also be constructed with trusses or slabs or metal girder. When subjected to a structural load, the ...

## CFRP Laminates for Shear Strengthening of RC Beams

The use of Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) strips for shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beam has gain great success. Structural beams may loss shear capacity due to environmental influences or design and construction errors and hence rehabilitation of ...

## Fundamental Assumptions for Reinforced Concrete Design

The fundamental assumptions for reinforced concrete design permit one to predict by calculation the performance of reinforced concrete members. Of course, the structural mechanics in conjunction with extensive testing are used as a base for the design and analysis ...

## Modulus of Rupture of Concrete Beam

Modulus of rupture is a measure of the tensile strength of concrete beams or slabs. Flexural strength identifies the amount of stress and force an unreinforced concrete slab, beam or other structure can withstand such that it resists any bending ...

## Reinforced Concrete Beam Detailing According to ACI Code

Clearly, the detailing of the reinforced concrete members is the key to good design and execution of work at the site.That is why poor detailing of reinforcement makes the structure undergo cracking, excessive deflection, or even collapse. Reinforcements resist ...

## What is a hidden beam? Purpose, Applications and Design

What is a Hidden Beam? Hidden beam is a reinforced concrete beam, also called concealed beam provided within the depth of supporting slabs. So, the depth of hidden beam is the same as slab depth as it can be ...

## Types of Steel Beam Connections and their Details

There are various types of steel beam connections used in structures. Steel beam connections are categorized into two groups namely framed and seated connections.
