What are the different types of beam? A beam is a structural element that primarily resists loads applied laterally to the beam’s axis. Its mode of deflection is primarily by bending.
🔓 Types of beam
The following are the Important kinds of beam
Types of Beam
1. Cantilever beam,
2. Simply supported beam,
3. Overhanging beam,
4. Fixed beams, and
5. Continuous beam.
1. Cantilever beam
A beam that is fixed at one end and complimentary at the other end, is referred to as a cantilever beam. Such a beam is displayed in Fig.
2. Simply Supported beam
A beam supported or resting easily on the assistances at its both ends, is referred to as merely a supported beam. Such a beam is displayed in Fig.
3. Overhanging Beam
If the completion part of a beam is extended beyond the assistance, such a beam is referred to the as an overhanging beam. The overhanging beam is displayed in Fig.
4. Fixed Beam
A beam whose both ends are fixed or integrated walls is referred to as a fixed beam. Such a beam is displayed in Fig. A fixed beam is likewise referred to as an integrated or encastred beam.
A beam which is supplied more than 2 assistances as displayed in Fig. is referred to as a constant beam.
