2 Easy Tricks How to Calculate Width & depth of Beam

How to Calculate Width & depth of Beam

 

 Before Know  How to Calculate Width & depth of Beam

 

 

How to find depth & Width of Beam

 

Always Remember one thing that you have whatever span length  but first you  have to fixed two things

 

1). What is your Beam Depth

 

2). What is Your Beam Width

 

After that only you can design your beam that

 

What will be the size and diameter  of the steel ,numbers of stirrups and so on.So, First thing you have to decide is Depth and width of beam.

 

So, Basically Today I will tell you those calculations that  How to calculatedepth & Width of Beam of any Span,as well as I will clear you that what should be the minimum percentage of steel in Beam ,Slab and Column.

 

Ok Friends Lets Started and see 

 

How to Calculate Width & depth of Beam

 

Lets take an example,

 

Suppose A Span is Given whose

 

Length = 4 meter

 

Now , What Should be the minimum depth and width of this beam 

 

So,it is very Simple and Easy to calculate

 

Hence,According to IS Standard

 

The Formula for Calculate minimum Depth of Beam

 

                           Min d = l/16

 

                                      = 4/16 = ¼ = 0.25 meter or 250 mm

 

Or when we convert it in cm than it is equal to = 25 cm ( because 1 cm is equal to 25 mm )

 

So, Our Depth of beam = 25 cm

 

Now we will Calculate Width of the Beam

 

So, According to IS Standard

 

The Formula for Calculate minimum Width

 

                           Min b = d/1.5

 

                                      = 25/1.5  = 16.67 Cm  

So,

As per our Indian Standard For a Span of 4 mtr minimum Depth of beam should be Consider  25 cm and minimum width of beam should be consider 16.67 cm. It may be greater than these dimensions but cannot  be less than these dimensions.

 

Now  will discuss on another things that

 

According to Indian Standard (IS)

 

Maximum Steel Percentage Required for slab = 4 %

 

Maximum Steel Percentage Required for Beams = 4 %

 

Maximum Steel Percentage Required for Column = 6 %

 

For More Details

Minimum percentage of steel in beam,slab and Columns

 

This is the percentage in Section Of that particular elements volume.

 

Ok Friends ,

 

So this is the easy methods to find out the Depth and Width of beam.

 

I hope this article will be useful for you,

 

Thanks for your Attention

 

Goodbye
