# Simply Supported Beam Reinforcement Details In AutoCAD

A beam is a structural member that does resist bending loads over a span or distance. On the base of support, the beam is many types. In this article, we are talking about simply supported beam reinforcement details. And includes the AutoCAD file for free download, where are clearly present all types of Beam Reinforcement Details.

Types of beams based on support mainly:

## Simply Supported Beam Reinforcement Details

Designing the reinforcement for a simply supported beam involves determining the required steel area for tension and compression, the spacing and size of bars, and the location of the bars.

### Determine the required steel area of the simply supported beam:

Calculate the required steel area for both the tension and compression zone using the following formula:
As = (M * 10^6) / (0.87 * fy * d)

where:
As = required steel area (mm²)
M = maximum bending moment at the center of the span (N.mm)
fy = characteristic strength of reinforcement (N/mm²)
d = effective depth of the beam (mm)

The actual design may vary depending on the specific requirements of the project and the local building codes. It is recommended to consult with a qualified engineer to ensure the correct design and detailing of the reinforcement.
