Why we use Different types Concrete Column in Construction Work

Columns are rigit, relatively slender structural members designed primarily to support axial compressive loads applied to the ends of the members. The concrete column that built at most of the construction site is built with the concrete beam and slab.

Different Types of Column:

1) Rectangular or Square Column
2) Circular Column
3) T-Type Column
4) V-Type Column
5) L-Type Column

This video is presented by Sami of Civilglobal.com where he expalin more about different types of column and its uses in construction works. Watch this awesome video tutorial today and get some deep knowledge about concrete column construction.

Download T beam Design Excel Sheet for FREE

A T–beam (or tee beam), used in construction, is a load-bearing structure of reinforced concrete, wood or metal, with a t-shaped cross section. The top of the t-shaped cross section serves as a flange or compression member in resisting compressive stresses.

Tee Section, also known as T beam or T bar, is a structural beam with a “T” shaped cross section. Tee section is generally made of plain carbon steel.A beam composed of a stem and a flange in the form of a T; usually of reinforced concrete or rolled metal.

T beam Advantage

For spans larger than 4 m it offers greater and significantly more resistance compared to rectangular beam. Simply T beam will reduce rebar requirement.
We can save 9 to 20 percent reinforcement as compared to rectangular beam.
Required depth of beam will also reduce, as flange or web will contribute against sagging moment.

Slab : What are Difference between main bars and Distribution bars

Slab : What are Difference between main bars and Distribution bars

A very nice video tutorial presented by Sami of civilglobal.com on different between main bars and distribution bars in slab. If you are new or students, you should watch this video tutorial today.

Here are some main point listed down from the video. All contents are copyright of civilglobal.com

1) Function of Main Bars in Slab.

Main bars are placed at the shorter span direction, to transfer (B.M.) developed at the bottom of the slab to the

2) Function of Distribution Bars in Slab.

Distribution Bars (D.B.) are used in the slab to resist the shear stress because the cracks are devloped due to shear
stress on the top of the slab.

Main Bars (M.B.)
1) Main bars are place at the shorter span direction.
2) Main bars are used at the bottom of the slab.
3) For main bars we select high (dia) of steel.
4) In one way slab, the slab is supported one direction or side, so there should be placed main bars.

Distribution Bars (D.B.)
1) (D.B.) are placed at the longer span direction
2) (D.B.) are used at the top of the slab.
3) (D.B.) select the lesser (dia) of steel.

Bending Moment Explaining – What is Bending Moment

Bending Moment explained very well in this video demonstration. A Bending Moment is a subsitute for a force. Watch this video demonstration.

A bending moment is the reaction induced in a structural element when an external force or moment is applied to the element causing the element to bend. The most common or simplest structural element subjected to bending moments is the beam. The example shows a beam which is simply supported at both ends.
