    Breadth of T-beam is:

    1) 1/3 of eff span.
    2) center to center distance of beam.
    3) 12x depth of flange + width of the beam.

    Which ever is less
    Answer is;
    As per 1) (300-20+13)/3 = 97.66 cm.
    As per 2) 300 cm.
    As per 3) 12x13+20 = 176 cm.
    According to the conditions less is 97.66 cm.
