Design of Plinth Beam as per Indian Standard (IS code) Guideline

In this article, I have explained the purpose of providing the plinth beam and the Design parameter such as width, depth, span to depth ratio, width to depth ratio, Grade of concrete, Grade of steel, reinforcement detailing, and lap splices. The main purposes to Design plinth beam are as follows; Plinth Beam carries the load of the wall. It ties all the columns of that level. It Resists the lateral forces. The plinth prevents the differential settlement of buildings. It controls the cracks in the masonry wall. It reduces the effective length of columns which prevents the columns from buckling.…

What is Plinth Beam I Structural Advantage of Providing Plinth Beam I Ideal height of Plinth Beam

What is plinth Beam ? A reinforced concrete Beam which is provided either below, above, or at ground level is known as plinth beam. It differentiates superstructure and substructure levels. It connects all the columns of the structure that helps to resist the earthquake forces. Why Plinth Beam is Provided / Structural Benefits of Providing Plinth Beam The Structural benefits of providing Plinth Beam are as follows: 1. It Prevents differential settlement of Buildings All the loads of superstructure act on the plinth beam which is uniformly distributed to the soil that prevents the building from the settlement. If the…

Volume of Neck Column. Volume of back filling. What is Footing? A footing that is provided under an individual column is known as isolated footing.  The isolated footing is used to carry a load of superstructure through the Reinforced concrete column and transfer to the soil. It is one of the most economical footings as compared to other types of footing. It is because reinforcement provided in this footing…
