Abstract: On this project we will try to design an ( I ) construction beam and find lightest weight material that can be used as an construction beam , currently we are taking strength of material course that helping us to learn more about construction beam’s design , we will be going over types of beams , types of loads and beams design , on our own we will research about the materials of beams and try to find the lightest beam’s material that we can use in construction according to our knowledge so far.

Introduction:
The universally and traditionally descriptions of civil engineering structural elements or buildings And one of the building’s principles, this is what they call beam, so basically beam is a long thick piece structural element of wood or metal or concrete, etc., that has an ability to withstanding stress ,some people they defined Beam is structural member designed to support loadings perpendicular to their longitudinal axis, but simply we say it’s the pole of a carriage in the building , as you see in the picture (# of pic ) these are beams of woods attached to each other to make the primal structure , I think this picture is an good example of construction beams,

in this project we going to talk about several things are related to construction beams, First of all we going to talk separately about types of beams, and then we will cover the some types of structural and give a full explanation about them , after that we will be going over the beam design in general and especially (I) beam, lastly we will explain the types of materials that we use for construction beams, after a fully explaining for the previews parts we will answer our question that we have and discuss the results, moreover we will sum up our project in the conclusion part as the last part of the our project.

Types of Structural loads: Structural loads a load can be define as a force that effect and produce deformations, stresses and

    Bending of a Beam Senior Freshman Engineering Laboratories Lab: 2E4A Coordinator: Asst. Prof. Bidisha Ghosh Demonstrator: Concept A transverse load is applied to a beam. The beam changes its shape and experiences bending moment. Internal stresses (bending stress) develop in the beam. In the bent or curved shape, the material on the inside of the curve experiences compression and material on the outside of the curve experiences tension. In pure bending, the transverse planes in the material…

    CASE 2 Aaron Beam and the HealthSouth Fraud 1. Which of the “obstacles” to moral behavior do you see at work in Aaron Beam’s behavior and thinking? In Scrushy’s? An obstacle to Aaron Beam’s moral behavior is when he moved some of the business start up costs as expenses and lists them as capital investment, which inflates the company profit margins. Beam initially did this because of the pressure from Scrushy to make the company appear more profitable. Then, the cycle continues. 2. Explain how…

    stiffness of two cantilevered beams composed of steel and aluminum while maintaining both beams at a constant thickness and cross sectional area. The experiment also investigated material properties and dimensions and their relationship to structural stiffness. The experiment was divided into two separate parts. The results for the first part of the experiment were obtained by clamping the beam at one end while applying different masses at a specified length across the beam and then measuring deflection…
