SIT. F: 
A 12 m simply supported beam is provided by an additional support at mid span. A superimposed dead load 

of 
4.95 kN/m and service live load of 24.57 kN/m is to be carried in addition to the selfweight of the beam. 

The beam has a constant rectangular section with b = 300 mm and a total depth h = 450 mm and reinforcement is to be varied according to requirements. Allow concrete cover to bar centroid of 70 mm, fy = 

415 MPa and f’c = 30 MPa. Use 0.75ρb = 0.023 and ρmin = 0.0033

2. 
Determine the required tensile area for negative bending. 

SIT. G: 
A rectangular concrete beam is 350 mm wide and 700 mm deep. It is reinforced at the bottom with 5φ32 mm 

bars and at the top with 3φ28 mm bars. Steel covering to bar centroid is 70 mm at the top and at the bottom 

of 
the beam. Use f’c = 21 MPa and fy = 415 MPa 

3. 
Calculate the design moment capacity of the beam section in negative bending. 

4. 
Calculate the design moment capacity of the beam section in positive bending. 

5. 
If the beam is simply supported over a span of 6m with a 2m overhang determine the maximum factored 

load in kN/m the beam can support. 

SIT. H: 
A rectangular section is limited to a size of b = 350 mm and h = 700 mm to carry a factored moment of 1,500 

kN⋅m. Assume that bars in compression will be placed at 70 mm from the compression face and bars in tension 80 mm from the tension face. Given that f’c = 28 MPa and fy = 415 MPa design the steel requirements 

of 
the cross section. 

SIT. I: 
The typical Tsection results from the monolithic construction of the slab and its supporting beams. 

Effective flange width Slab thickness Web width Total depth below the slab Top reinforcement Bottom reinforcement 
bf = 1250 mm t = 120 mm bw = 350 mm h = 480 mm 3 – ϕ25 mm 5 – ϕ25 mm 

f’c 
= 20.7 MPa 

fy 
= 415 MPa 

Concrete cover to the centroid of reinforcements = 70 mm Balanced Steel Ratio ρb = 0.021 

6. 
Determine the nominal bending strength for positive moment 

7. 
Find the nominal bending strength for negative moment. 

SIT. J: 
A monolithic floor system consists of 100 mm thick slabs and simply supported beams with a 7.3 m span, 1.2 

m 
on centers. The floor carries a superimposed dead load of 1.15 kPa and live load of 1.9 kPa. Walls 

weighing 2.8 kPa and 2.4 m high are directly supported by the beams. Beam dimensions, as determined by negative moment requirements at supports, are bw = 275 mm and h = 500 mm. Concrete weights 24 kN/m^3. 

8. 
Determine the total factored load to be carried by an interior beam in kN/m. 

9. 
Determine the effective flange width of the interior beam in mm according to NSCP 2001 provisions. 

10. 
Determine the required amount of steel reinforcement at midspan of a typical interior beam. Use concrete compressive strength f’c = 21 MPa and steel strength fy = 275 MPa. Assume 20 mm bar diameter for flexure and 10 mm for stirrups.
