(a) For the beam loaded as shown in Fig. 1, determine the maximum Bending
Moment and Shear Force (present this in form of SF and BM diagrams)
(b) Using some of the information above, determine suitable cross-sectional
dimensions for effective depth and width of the beam. Assume overall cover to
reinforcement as 25 mm.
(c) Taking fcu as 25 N/mm2
, fy as 460 N/mm2
and fyv as 250 N/mm2
, design the beam
(d) Draw a detailed reinforcement drawing showing elevation and typical cross-
section of the beam.
