Continuous Beam: It refers to a beam that remains on more than two supports.

Semi-Continuous Beam: – Refers to a beam having two spans with or without restraint at the two extreme ends.

Cantilever Beam:-In this type of beam support is given to one end and the other end projects ‘beyond the support or wall.

T – Beam: The floor slabs and beams are discharged all together to form a monolithic structure where the segment of the slab at both sides of the beam appears as flanges of the T-Beam.

The beam underneath the slab acts as the web member and is often described as stem.
