ANALYSIS OF DOUBLY REINFORCED MASONRY BEAMS
Introduction Heretofore we have discussed beams that were reinforced only on the tension side, the reinforcement being referred to as tension reinforcement. Such beams are called singly reinforced beams. However, the reinforcement can also be provided near the compression side of a beam (i.e., in the compression zone of the beam), in which case the beam is called a doubly reinforced beam and the reinforcement is referred to as compression reinforcement. It is not common to design doubly reinforced masonry beams as singly reinforced beams are generally…
