How To Design Rectangular Beam - Step By Step Tutorial

In this tutorial session we will be learning the design process of a rectangular beam. Basically the main task that is associated with a structural engineer is the analysis and design of structures. There are two approaches available of design and analysis as follows:

Design of a section :
It indicates that the external ultimate moment is known and it is necessary to calculate the dimensions of a sufficient concrete section and the quantity of steel reinforcement.

Analysis of a section :
On the other hand, it is needed for the calculation of the internal ultimate moment capacity of the section.
