Topic: Whats the max. room size for rcc flat roof without beams?

What is maximum room size that support rcc roof without beam in between and load bearing walls. I've also seen that in some places of rcc roof steel bars are provided in box form instead of mesh...will it act as small beam without projections? If yes, up to what room size we can use it instead of actual beam?

Any extension more than 100 Sq.ft. needs and extra beam in the lantel. So the room size more than 10x10 needs an extra beam in the centre.

Sir, I see a lot of houses with bedroom/living room sizes 12ftx13ft,13ftx14ft etc. without any visible beams. In my present house plan the bedroom size is 12ftx13ft but engineer is suggesting more steel rods through the centre within same 4" thickness ie. Not visible beam. Is it right?

Yes you are correct. That beam is not visible as that has to be inside the lintel.
