 Nina said: (Oct 7, 2016) 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.

 Chhaya said: (Apr 28, 2017) You are right @Gaurav Sharma. It's as per as IS 456.

 Ankit said: (Jul 22, 2017) How is this possible? Explain in detail.

 Roy said: (Sep 21, 2017) This is for spaning in one direction.

 Ritu said: (Dec 17, 2017) 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.

 Dre said: (Jan 18, 2018) I think the answer should be 7.

 Amit said: (Apr 1, 2018) You are right @Gaurav.

 Uttu Don said: (Oct 3, 2018) @Chhaya. We don't mix 456 with steel structures.

 Talib said: (Dec 8, 2018) @All. It is not RCC but steel so don't mix 456 with steel.

 Akash Pandya said: (Jan 20, 2020) In splices we consider filler plate as short column, and for short column the slenderness ratio should be less than 12.

 Shams Khan said: (Sep 28, 2020) Cantilever beam L/8. Cantilever Fillers L/12.
