Design method for torsion Introduction

The edge beam shown in Figure 3.13 carries the ends of simply supported floor slabs seated on the lower flange. The beam is fully restrained at its ends.

The example chosen is the same as that used in Allen's Reinforced concrete design to BS 8110: Simply explained(12).

Analysis of the structure and the design of the section for flexure is not included. The section will be checked for shear, torsion and the combination of both.
