Re: More on Lintels

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello All
A lintel, wide flange shape with bottom plate, carries masonry load min bearing only at ends, having an eccentricity causing torsion load, it is designed for the vertical loading and the tensional stress and is about 20 feet long 3" eccentricity and within the allowable 0.3" deflection requirement and combined stress is less then 0.66Fy.
 
Is there a requirement to be concerned about the rotation of the member if the above is satisfied?
 
Thank you
