Can you laterally support the top flange to eliminate lateral torsional buckling?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
no torsional issue. just a beam supporting a wooden deck as a dock over a pond. beam sits on concrete landins about 3 ft each end

The location is remote and rugged. hould I consider aluminum to make it easier to handle with light farm euipment
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 6 months ago.
If the beam isn't braces against lateral torsional buckling, there will be an issue.
