Short column and Long column- Difference by the Slenderness ratio

Short column and Long column- Difference by the slenderness ratio

A compression member i.e. column is an important element of every reinforced concrete structure. These are used to transmit the load of superstructure to the foundation safely. A column is a vertical compression member which is mainly subjected to axial loads and the effective length of which exceeds three times its lateral dimension. Types of … Read more Short column and Long column- Difference by the Slenderness ratio

Difference between carpet area and built up area of Building

Difference between carpet area and built up area of Building

Difference between carpet area and built up area Plinth area The plinth area is defined as the built-up covered area of a building measured at the floor level of any storey. It is calculated by taking the external dimensions of the building at the floor level excluding plinth offset if any.  Balconies, open areas, court-yard, … Read more Difference between carpet area and built up area of Building

Doubly reinforced beam design- Step by Step Numerical

Doubly reinforced beam design

In a cross-section of concrete beam, if the reinforcements are provided in both the compression and tension zones, it is called a “Doubly reinforced beam”. Why to provide Doubly reinforced beam? This type of beam is mostly provided when the depth of the beam is restricted. and by increasing the steel in the tension zone, … Read more Doubly reinforced beam design- Step by Step Numerical
