Part 3:
The new photonics research facility which will be housed in The Advanced
Research Complex (ARC), is a "hybrid" structure which is a mix of
concrete and steel systems. The steel structure and the concrete structure of
this building make up the vert

DESIGN OF REINFORCED CONCRETE T-BEAMS
Since concrete in tension is omitted from strength calculations, it seems sensible to
reduce the area of concrete in the tension zone.

Traditional structures are designed of all steel or all reinforced concrete.
There are many advantages to hybrid structures, which is a mix between both steel
and reinforced concrete. Some
