Question
Dear Sir,
Is there any Limitation for R.C.C beam width to Depth ratio in ACI-Code for example if the beam width is 12 in and depth 66 in is it o.k

Answer
Dear Mohammad

You  dont need to worry because this matter hovers in the case of I type sections. In addition if a good bracing of the compression flange exists which is the case of the majority of  situations the matter will be of minor importance.
