## Example 1: A transfer girder with a clear span

of 6m is to support a column having a factored
factored load including self weight of
Wd=268.45KN/m. Using the empirical method
of Deep beam design, design the beam for
flexure and shear. Use C-25 for concrete and S360 for steel class I works.
Solution:
Check for deep beam

## / = 6 + 0.3 + 0.3 = 6.6

## Design for shear

B/c more than 50% of the shear at the support is
principal load. Thus the critical shear is calculated
at av/2, where

from the face of a column 300x300mm in cross section. Proportion the various dimensions of the
corbel and find the amount of reinforcement required to resist the load without failure. Use C30 for concrete and S-400 for steel class I works.
