Design of Continuous Beam | RCC Structures
The beam that rests on more than two supports. The beam that rests over multiple columns. Continuous beams increase the structural rigidity of a structure. They offer alternate load path incase of a failure of a section in the beam.
Continuous beams are commonly used in buildings in seismic risk zone.
Three moment equation or Clapeyron’s equation
Four Methods for Analysis of a beam are as follows:
- Three moment equation
- Moment distribution method
- Kani’s method
- Slope deflection method
