## Calculating the Uniform Dead and Live loads that a Reinforced Concrete Masonry Beam Can Carry

March 17, 2017 Abdul Siraj, P.E.

In this post, I will go over the sixth example in our structural masonry design course covering flexural analysis of beams. The goal of this example is to calculate the uniform dead and live loads that a reinforced concrete masonry beam can carry per ACI 530-11, Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structures.   The problem statement…
