  1. Tie beams design

    assalamualaikum sepakistan, i wanna ask how do you design properly the tie beam? i always use the moment from base column (fixed base support) to design the properties (geometri and steel reinforcement) and its the same value of steel along the beam (from the support to middle and to support again). theres also a 10% of gravity of column additionaly as a axial load on the beam. so i use an interaction diagram just like design the column. because the moment of base already got taken by the tie beam then i never consider moment anymore when design the footing. Am i doing it right? please correct me if im wrong and additional question is whats the difference between the tie beam, ground beam, grade beam and plinth beam? thank you regards

    Dear engineers; 1. For what we need tie beams ? 2. I mean if I take the first floor's columns' height into consideration in my model ? 3. Will it carry the slab on grade ? 4. In case of Raft then no need for thetie beams since the slab on grade will lay on the raft Yes? Regards

If i design this beam in sap2000, i apply gravity load and support settelemnt of 25 mm at one end of beam and design it, will it be OK? Shud i take soil reaction from bottom or shud i neglect it?
