What is a deep beam ? Explain ?..

Answer / suman sarkar

Beams with large depths in relation to spans are called deep
beams. As per IS-456 (2000) Clause 29, a simply supported
beam is classified as deep when the ratio of its effective
span L to overall depth D is less than 2. Continuous beams
are considered as deep when the ratio L/D is less than 2.5.
The effective span is defined as the center-to-center distance
between the supports or 1.15 times the clear span whichever
is less.

What is a deep beam ? Explain ?..

Answer / tasleema

Reinforced concrete deep beams are the structural elements that transfers the heavy gravity loads predominantly through shearing action to their supports. A beam having much greater depth than that of a normal beep in relation to its span, while the thickness in the perpendicular direction is much smaller than both span and depth, is usually termed as a deep beam.

What is a deep beam ? Explain ?..

Answer / manogna

Deep beams are structural elements loaded as beams in which a significant amount of the load is transferred to the supports by a compression thrust joining the load and the reaction. As a result, the strain distribution is no longer considered linear, and the shear deformations become significant when compared to pure flexure. Floor slabs under horizontal load, short span beams carrying heavy loads, and transfer girders are examples of deep beams.
