#### Design of Continuous Beam | RCC Structures

#### Definition

The beam that rests on more than two supports. The beam that rests over multiple columns. Continuous beams increase the structural rigidity of a structure. They offer alternate load path incase of a failure of a section in the beam.

Continuous beams are commonly used in buildings in seismic risk zone.

#### Three moment equation or Clapeyron’s equation

#### Four Methods for Analysis of a beam are as follows:

- Three moment equation
- Moment distribution method
- Kani’s method
- Slope deflection method
