Dead load ofbeam-multiply unit weight by the cross sectional area and this will give u the dead load of the beam per foot. Reaction diagram of beam-add the dead load of beam and slab load together multiple by the length of beam and divide by two to find reactions. Load on girder withreaction diagram-when finding the girder’s load you will take all of the reactions from the beams placed on girder and calculate the dead load of it of that girder and then calculate the reactions. Loads on the columns- Loads on the columns will equal the reactions of the girders places on top of the columns.
