19:26 Photos DSE referral coursework 2023... Design the following simply supported reinforced concrete beam in accordance with EC2: \table[[Span (L),5500 mm,],[Overall Depth of Cross Section (h),500 mm,],[Width of Cross Section (b),225 mm,],[Characteristic Concrete Strength (

`f_(ck)`

),

`50(N)/(m)m^(2)`

,],[Characteristic Main Tension Steel Strength,

`500(N)/(m)m^(2)`

,(use H25)],[Characteristic Shear Link Steel Strength,

`500(N)/(m)m^(2)`

,(use H10)],[Cover to links,55 mm,],[Characteristic Permanent Actions (

`g_(k)`

),

`15.0k(N)/(m)`

,],[Characteristic Variable Actions (

`q_(k)`

),

`10.0k(N)/(m)`

,]] Pease read the following important notes: Note 1. The beam self-weight is to be ignored. Note 2. All bars (main and shear links are grade 500 steel (

`f_(yk)=500(N)/(m)m^(2)`

) Note 3. The depth value ( h ) is the overall depth NOT the effective depth. Note 4. You are to design the beam using the methods taught during the lectures and tutorials.
