Three slabs are supported by four beams as shown in the figure
below. The beams are also supported by two girders and four
columns. In this scenario, assume:
- The beam span is 15 ft and spaced 10 ft center-to-center.
- The slabs and beams have a factored dead load of 200 pounds per
square foot (psf), including self-weight.
- The slabs and beams have a factored live load of 250 psf.
- The self-weight of AB girder is 150 lb per
