Example Building
Below is a partial plan of a typical floor in acast-in-place reinforced concrete building.The floor framing consists of wide-modulejoists and beams. In this example, thebeams are designed and detailed for thecombined effects of gravity and lateral(wind) loads according to ACI 318-99.

Gravity Load Analysis
The coefficients of ACI Sect. 8.3 areutilized to compute the bending momentsand shear forces along the length of thebeam. From preliminary calculations, thebeams are assumed to be 36 x 20.5 in.Live load reduction is taken per ASCE 7-98.psf3.7eighteam

/18.5 = (30 x 12)/18.5 = 19.5 in.Since joists are 20.5 in. deep, use 20.5-in.depth for the beams for formwork economy.With d = 20.5 – 2.5 = 18 in., solve Eq. (2)for b using maximum M
