UNIT 6

DESIGN OF REINFORCED CONCRETECONTINUOUS BEAMS
GENERAL OBJECTIVETo understand the principles of designing reinforced concrete continuous beams.At the end of this unit you should be able to:1.define continuous beams.2.calculate total ultimate load of continuous beams.3.use moment and shear force coefficients given in BS 8110 to solve problems.4.calculate the area of reinforcement for continuous beams.5.provide the calculations for the total number and bar size for continuous beams.6.sketch reinforcement details for continuous beams.

6.1
Introduction
Continuous beams are used in structural designs when three or more spans exist.Continuous beams occur frequently in cast in situ construction when a single spanof construction is linked to an adjoining span. Bending moment of continuous beams does not confine to a single span only but it will affect the whole system. Itis most important that you develop a mental picture of the deflected form of thestructure. If this can be visualized the areas of tension and compressionreinforcement can readily be determined. The failure mode of continuous beamsis shown in Figure 6.1 on the next page.
