What is fillers?

Gaurav Sharma said: (Feb 22, 2017)  
According to me, 8 is right because
For cantilever l/b ratio = 7.
For simply supported l/b = 20.
For continuous l/b = 26.

You are right @Gaurav Sharma.

It's as per as IS 456.

How is this possible? Explain in detail.

This is for spaning in one direction.

I think in this question depth (d) means overall depth. So the answer here is 12.

And for (span/effective depth) it is 7 for the Cantilever.

I think the answer should be 7.

You are right @Gaurav.

We don't mix 456 with steel structures.

It is not RCC but steel so don't mix 456 with steel.

In splices we consider filler plate as short column, and for short column the slenderness ratio should be less than 12.

Cantilever beam L/8.
Cantilever Fillers L/12.
