John Tingerthal presents an exclusive video for construction professionals. This construction video focuses on the issue of finding out distributed load on a beam and column reactions in favor of a simple beam-and-plank system through asymmetrical bay sizes.
Tributary load denotes the load pursuing on a member (required to design it). Several floor systems comprise a reinforced concrete slab that is based on a rectangular grid of beams.
Such a grid of beams decreases the duration of the slab and as a result empowers the designer to diminish the thickness of the slab. The allocation of floor loads on floor beams is derived from the geometric layout of the beams structuring the grid.
tributary area = tributary width x span
To support his view, John comes up with the following video demonstration :-
