Calculate the ultimate moment of resistance of the reinforced concrete beam
shown in cross section in Figure 2.0. Is the section classed as "under-reinforced"
or "over reinforced", explaining why. Use concrete grade C32/40 (f

Check the section "under-reinforced" or "over reinforced"
x = 98.88 mm < 0.617d = 0.617(500) = 308.5 mm
Section is under reinforced

QUESTION 2
(Beam Design – Main Reinforcement, Shear Reinforcement, Deflection and Detailing)
REFERENCE CALCULATION MARKS
Question
A simply supported beam for an office building has a span of 7.5 m will be
designed to support permanent and variable action as shown in Figure 2.0 (a). The
beam will be cast monolithically with slab and having cross section as given in
Figure 2.0 (b).

You are required to design the beam A-B by using the following data:

Figure 2.0
Characteristic concrete strength, f
ck
= 30 N/mm
2
High yield steel strength, f
y
= 500 N/mm
2
Slab thickness, h = 150 m
Main reinforcement diameter = 20 mm
shear reinforcement diameter = 8 mm

Solution
W
