**1-Introduction to Cb-Bending coefficient part-1 for steel.**

This is the first post in the List of Steel Beam posts-part-2a.

This is post number 17 for Steel Beams Posts which includes:

1-How do we estimate the CB-bending coefficient values for different loading types and bracing locations?

2- How to estimate moment gradient cb for a simply supported beam under a uniform loading?

3-How to estimate **the moment gradient** factor CB for a fixed ends beam under a uniform loading?

This is a summary of the values of Cb or the bending coefficient for different steel beam loading and different bracing locations.

This is a snapshot of the equation used to find the Cb value of the gradient coefficient for steel beams based on the factor of 12.50/12.50. After selecting the required bracing locations. For instance, we have a simple beam under a uniform load.

That beam has two bracings at the supports. Divide each strip by Four quarters and evaluate the absolute maximum moment value for an unbraced segment which is M max.

Evaluate the maximum absolute moment value for the first one-fourth of the unbraced segment which is MA.

Find the absolute value of the maximum moment at the center line of the unbraced segment which is MB.

Find the maximum absolute moment value at the midpoint of the unbraced segment which is MB.

Find the maximum absolute moment value at three-quarters of the unbraced segment which is MC. For the numerator multiply Mmax by 12.50.

The factor of 12.50 at the denominator represents the sum of 4.50 Max plus 3Ma plus 4*Mb plus 3Mc.

The final value of Cb can be obtained for the simple beam as shown in the slide image and its value is 12.5/11=1.14.

### 5- CB value bracing at third points of a beam-U load**.**

This is Post number 18c of the Steel beams Posts which includes:

How to find the CB value bracing at the third point of a beam-uniform load-simple beam case?

In this case, we have four braces for the simple beam AB, these braces at A, C, D, and B. The distance AC-CD=DB=L/4.

For the next slide image, the illustration walks you through the details of the estimation of the absolute moment values for unbraced segment AA’ for the simply supported beam under uniform load.
