Plinth Beam


Beam laid above the foundation I.E. at plinth level.
Its the first beam framework constructed in the skeletal structure void between the foundation and plinth level is filled with compacted soil. Brick or stone masonry is usually constructed below the plinth beam.
The plinth beam needs to be strong, but need not be made up of reinforced cement concrete (RCC) all the time. However, irrespective of the specific contexts, RCC plinths are increasingly being cast in most constructions today.
