Beams: the ratio of bending moment at supports in monolithic contruction β1

Eurocode 2 part 1-1: Design of concrete structures (1)

In monolithic construction, even when simple supports have been assumed in design, the section at supports should be designed for a bending moment arising from partial fixity of at least β1 of the maximum bending moment in the span.


The recommended value for the bending moment ratio β1 is 0,15.
