Steel Beam Reinforcing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Having problems with server, sorry if this is a repeat

I never thought this post would unleash such a vast amount of information. It's quite an education. Perhaps I should clarify some things.

1. The members in question are A36 W12x19 L = 16'-10"

2. The W12's will be completely unloaded, except for the 3/8" diamond plate welded to the top flange.

3. The W12's are currently under stressed and will be overstressed by 40% after new loading is applied.

4. Connections, columns and footings are adequate.

I would like to thank everyone for their input. The responses have opened up design issues I never considered, but will now.
