Some material savings can be achieved when adopting a


limited capacity beam , strengthened by two cover plates to
flanges in zones of higher bending requirements.

Development , length.
Need extra length to develop the strength of the plate, This extra length
at each end is called development length. This should be added to the
theatrical length to get the actual length..
- Minimum extra length at each end = 2 width of plate
