Question
sir what is differnce between T beam and rectangular beam, how to select one of both in desinging?

Answer
Dear Suhail

When your roof system consists of reinforced concrete slab and drop down girders, your section may be a converted L ( side girders) or T ( middle girders). Rectangular sections is assumed where the roof system is not RC slab. The principle of design of both sections are the same, i.e. you assume rectangular section.
