Design of flanged beams
Flanged beams occur where beams are cast integral with and support a continuous floor
slab. Part of the slab adjacent to the beam is counted as acting in compression to form T
and L shape beams
The effective breadth b of flanged beams is given by
1. Tbeams web width b
w
+l
z
/10 or the actual flanged width if less
2. Lbeams web width b
w
+l
z
/5 or the actual flanged width if less
l
z
is the distance between points of zero moment (which for a continuous beam, may be
taken as o.7 times the effective span)
The design procedure depends on where the neutral axis lies. The neutral axis may lie
in the flange or in the web. If it is in web it needs to check whether the section needs
compression reinforcement.
Neutral Axis is in flange
To satisfy the criteria the actual neutral axis depth (0.9X) should not exceed flange depth h

.

Neutral Axis is in web
Equation in the code is derived using the simplified stress block with X=o.5d;
depth of stress block = 0.9X = 0.45d
This applies only when X is less than 0.5d.
If otherwise the section should design for the compression reinforcement also.

Shear reinforcement in beams
Action of shear reinforcement
Concrete is weak in tension, and so shear failure is caused by a failure in diagonal
tension with cracks running
at 45
o
to the beam axis.
Shear reinforcement is provided
by bars which cross the cracks, and theoretically either vertical links of inclined bars
will serve this purpose.
Design shear stress in any cross section;
The design concrete shear stress is given in Table 3.8.
After compare the values it can find the form and area of shear reinforcement using Table 3.7

Modification factor for compression reinforcement
Check for the deflection
Allowable span/eff. depth can be calculated by multiplying basic span/eff. depth
from Table 3.9 by the modification factors for tension and compression
reinforcement.
Then it is compared with the actual spantoeffective depth ratio.
If allowable s/d is greater than actual s/d, beam is satisfies the deflection criteria.
If otherwise not
