Beams are widely used in the construction industry and are
available in a variety of standard sizes. Tables are available to
allow easy selection of a suitable steel I-beam size for a given
applied load. I-beams may be used both as beams and as columns.
I-beams may be used both on their own, or acting compositely with
another material, typically concrete.
The web resists shear forces, while the flanges resist most of the
bending moment experienced by the beam. Beam theory shows that the
I-shaped section is a very efficient form for carrying bothbending
and shear loads in the plane of the web. On the other hand, the
cross-section has a reduced capacity in the transverse direction,
and is also inefficient in carrying torsion, for whichhollow
structural sections are often preferred.
Mild Steel I Beam is widely used in various building structure and
a).used for the plant, high-rise building construction
b) used for the bridge, shipment building
c).used for lifting and transportation machinery, equipment
manufacturing base building
d).used for the support, foundation
