DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLINTH BEAM AND TIE BEAM

In this Lecture Eng.Sami will discuss Difference between Plinth beam and Tie beam

WHAT IS PLINTH BEAM? 

The beam which is provided at the plinth level is called plinth beam. In framed structure plinth beam is the first beam constructed after foundation.

WHAT IS TIE BEAM? 

The beam which connects two or more columns/rafters in a roof/ roof truss or in any height above floor level is called tie beam. Tie beams are mainly provided in roof truss and at plinth level. These beams do not convey any floor loads and only act as length breaker for columns where the floor height is unusually high.
