Slender Beams (Beams: BS 8110)

The clear distance between restraints is taken as below;

For simply supported or continuous beams:A

Clear distance between restraints ≤ MIN [60*bc, 250*b2c/d]

For cantilevers with lateral restraints only at support:

Clear distance between restraints ≤ MIN [25*bc or 100*b2c/d]


bc = breadth of the compression face of the beam,

d = effective depth of beam

A BS 8110-1:1997
