Ask Structural Engineering Questions and Get Expert Answers ASAP
Can you take a look at the following link and answer the questions at the bottom of the sheet? Your answers will allow me to accurately model the loading and size your beam. Thanks
So this is supporting the BCI floor members and also roof members?
If this beam just supports the roof, what city and state do you live in so I can look at possible snow loading?

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 planning purposes only (general sizing and budgeting) and is based on the information provided by you. All loading cases considered are for vertical loads only, no lateral analysis has been completed. 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.
Let me know when you come back online and we cam finish up your question to get you an answer.
I am still here to help if you need it.
