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

What about double beam?

Mrinal said:   7 years ago
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%.

Minimum percentage of tension steel is 0.17 and maximum 4%.
