The floor system of a gymnasium consists of a 130 mm thick concrete slab resting on four steel beams (*A* = 9,100 mm^{2}) that, in turn, are supported by two steel girders (*A* = 25,600 mm^{2}), as shown in Fig. P2.7. Determine the dead loads acting on beam *BF* and girder *AD*.

FIG. P2.7, P2.10

To determine

Find the dead load acting on the beam *BF* and girder *AD*.

**Given information:**

Consider the floor system of gymnasium.

The thickness of the concrete slab is

The area of the steel beams is

The area of the steel girder is

**Calculation:**

Show the slab as shown in Figure 1.

Refer to Figure 1.

Refer Table 2.1, “Unit Weight of the Construction Materials” in the textbook.

The unit of the structural steel is

The unit of the reinforced concrete is

Show the tributary area of the beam *BF* as shown in Figure 2.

Refer Figure 1 and Figure 2.

Calculate the dead load of concrete slab acting on the beam per unit length of the beam as follows:

Calculate the dead load of steel beam acting per unit length of the beam as follows:

Calculate the total load acting on the steel beam per unit length of the beam as follows:

The total dead load is distributed uniformly over the entire length of the beam
