Beam vs Girder | Different between Beam and Girder and their Application

Beam vs Girder

Beam and Girder look the same but the girder has to beam a heavier load than the beam. The beam is generally constructed to beam distributed load whereas girders are constructed to bear heavy point load from the group of Continue reading Beam vs Girder | Different between Beam and Girder and their Application

Floating Column – Reinforcement details | Merits and Demerits

Floating Column

What is Floating Column? • It is a vertical member which rests on a beam and does not transfer loads directly to the foundation. • It is not floating really, supported on the beam. Floating column at as a point Continue reading Floating Column – Reinforcement details | Merits and Demerits

Development length formula- How to Calculate development length of steel

Development length formula

Development length is the length of steel bars that should be embedded into the concrete of other members to make the strong bond between members like column, beam, slab, etc. The development length formula of steel is given below. For Continue reading Development length formula- How to Calculate development length of steel
