Tag: Reinforced Beams Steps in Strength Design of Reinforced Beams and Lintels

The most common reinforced masonry beam is a lintel. Lintels are beams that support masonry over openings. Strength design of reinforced beams and lintels follows the steps given below: 1. Shear design a. Calculate the design shear, and compare it with the corresponding resistance. Revise the lintel depth if necessary. 2. Flexural design a. Calculate the design moment. b. Calculate

Tag: Reinforced Beams Strength Design of Reinforced Beams and Lintels

Strength design of reinforced masonry beams follows the same steps used for reinforced concrete beams. The basic assumptions are shown in Fig. 6.1. Strain in the masonry is assumed to have a maximum useful value of 0.0025 for concrete masonry and 0.0035 for clay masonry. Tension reinforcement is assumed to be somewhere on the yield plateau. Because axial load is
