As per IS 456, the maximum area of tension reinforcement in the beam shall not exceed 4% of the total area i.e. 0.04bD.

@Mrinal.

Ast/bd=0.85/fy.

Ast/bd = .085/fy for minimum.
0.04bD for maximum.

The minimum steel is calculated by - Ast/bd=0.85/Fy.

What is minimum steel area in RCC beam as is 456 -2000?

Minimum -----> Ast/bd = 0.85/fy, max-----0.04bd or 4%.

According to me, it is 0.17%.

Sanju Khinwal said:   7 years ago
Minimum percentage of tension steel is 0.17 and maximum 4%.

Over rainforced section is not desirable.
