Simply supported beam vs simply supported flange beam

  1. Nov 26, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I want to design the beam as circled . I am wondering should I design it as a simply supported rectangular beam or simply supported flange beam
    Someone told me that i should design it as simply supported flange beam . i doubt that it's correct .
    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think it should be designed as simply supported rectangular beam . Correct me if i am wrong .
