The purpose of this thesis was to investigate about two zones of beam namely as Compression and tension zone. Compression zone and tension zone are the two zones that are specified for a beam. At the top and bottom of the neutral axis, respectively, are compression and tension zones. Steel is essential for supporting reinforced concrete beams in this instance, especially in the tension zone. Here we have conducted test on different specimen with different reinforcement at tension zone of concrete with different depths of beam specimen. In Case One - We have used equal reinforcement in both zones. In Case Two - Higher reinforcement in Tension zone and low reinforcement in compression zone. In Case Three – Reinforcement only in tension zone. Comparing all three cases we found that the strength achieved in case Two is nearly more than 90% as compare to case One.

Keywords : Neutral Axis ,Compression Zone, Tension Zone, Flexural Strength, Mix Design.
