I have a four-teen foot span over a doorway; What size steel w-beam do I need? It will have a point load of approximately 5000 lbs.
I have installed a wood built up beam consisting of five 2x10's
properly nailed. It has deflected 7/16th of an inch.
Hi, I can help.
Let me read closer
Before we get started I’d like to point out that a Professional Engineer’s standard of care typically includes a site visit to assess field conditions and get an overall understanding of the structure. This can obviously not be accomplished through the internet. The information provided here is meant for informational purposes only (general sizing and budgeting) and is based on the information provided by you. The information should be verified by a professional engineer who can visit the site to ensure that potentially important information has not been overlooked or omitted.
That's the only load is a 5000 pound point load?
