Topic: Absence of Plinth Beam

Hi,

I am constructing a G+VI residential building. My engineer has provided the structural drawing which has a raised plinth (around 1m above ground level) and Deep Pile Foundation. There is only one beam, that is above the Pile-Caps. Above those tie-beams, the columns goes upto a height of around 4.5 metres till the beams of the ground floor floor roof. The height of the ground floor is 3 m, and 1.5 m below is filled with silver sand from top of Pile-Caps. There is no beam at the plinth level.  Will there be any issue with the absence of plinth beams in this case? 

Also, how high can the columns be given the dimensions vary from 300x500mm to 300x600mm.

If the column is design for 4.5 meter height it is safe. Any height of column is possible to design as long column. normally we will take up to 12 to 15 times of column width but it is not limited to it.
Plinth beam required if you need to place any wall from plinth other wise o.k.
But as per earthquake resistance it is required to design long column very carefully.
its better to provide a lintel on plinth level as per earthquake resistance guide line.

Hello Sir,

Thank you very much for the answer.

In this case the engineer has started the wall from the beams at NGL, and gone upto the first floor roof. So the height of the wall is around 4.5m, 0.5m being below ground, 1m at Plinth, and 3m height of the ground floor.

During the construction we have to check and recheck for the all beams that will compulsory to use and then need to add the steals from the upper side of the slabs and columns too. If the beam name of the plinth one will be absence then other beams will take it care as on the australian essay chapter for the construction we have read and learnt about the rules.

The absence of Plinth beams what does it really meant it. Its something related to construction based site. There is a lot of criteria before doing construction works. We all consult a civil engineer  apartments for sale in kochi before doing the construction work. He gives the best ideas and we accept this.

Plinth beams are usually needed when you have to support any wall from the plinth. Otherwise, Hostsailor the absence of the plinth beam does not affect the construction. But most of the buildings use the plinth beam as an earthquake resistance to withstand earthquakes.
