Sixth TermCivil Engineering
Plain & ReinforcedConcrete-1
Doubly Reinforced Beams
Beams having both tension and compressionreinforcement to allow the depth of beam to be lesserthan minimum depth for singly reinforced beam”
By using lesser depth the lever arm reduces and to developthe same force more area of steel is required,so solution iscostly.
Ductility will be increased by providing compression steel.
Hanger bars can also be used as compression steelreducing the cost up to certain cost.
For high rise buildings the extra cost of the shallow deepbeams is offset by saving due to less story height.

Doubly Reinforced Beams (contd…)
Compression steel may reduce creep andshrinkage of concrete and thus reducing longterm deflection
Use of doubly reinforced section has beenreduced due to the Ultimate Strength DesignMethod, which fully utilizes concretecompressive strength
