Stress Block hence ultimate moment of resistance = 253 x 123 x 10 3 = 31.1 kNm

Untensioned steel is therefore required to permit the beam to support an ultimate moment of 40 kNm.

Additional moment capacity to be provided =40-31.1 = 8.9kNm Effective depth of additional steel 245 mm then lever arm to additional steel « 220 mm and
