Design of Beam Ledge According to ACI 318-99 Spreadsheet
A reinforced-concrete beam having projecting ledges for receiving the ends of joists or the like. A beam is a structural element that primarily resists loads applied laterally to the beam’s axis (an element designed to carry primarily axial load would be a strut or column). Its mode of deflection is primarily by bending. The loads applied to the beam result in reaction forces at the beam’s support points.
