Ask Structural Engineering Questions and Get Expert Answers ASAP
Hello. I apologize for the delay. I never received a notice that you had responded.
I have looked at your sketch and it is helpful. I do have some more questions for you. I can provide the allowable line load on a single beam of your choosing as this question or I can submit an additional service offer to provide the maximum allowable capacity (based on the controlling failure mode of the controlling beam) as an additional service, if you would like.
If you want the allowable line load (please note this is different than an allowable floor load), I can get that for you this morning. If you would like the allowable floor load in psf, I will submit the additional service offer for you. If you accept the offer, I will need about 4 hours once you answer all the remaining questions I will have to provide you with the capacity.
Different units. Max floor load would be in pounds per square foot and controlled by the most critical member in the system.
The max beam load would be a line load on a single beam. It will not give you the capacity of the floor.
I will need quite a bit more information to determine the allowable floor loading. I will also need to submit an additional service offer for you.
I will post all of the questions I need answers to and then will submit the offer.
I need a plan sketch of the framing showing all posts and beams with dimensions.
I will need to know the exact dimensions of all beams.
I submitted the offer for you to consider. If you accept the offer, I will provide you the allowable floor loading within 4 hours of receiving all of the information requested.
