Beam Bearing on Column

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
Wondering what is the general consensus of a heavily loaded W24 beam being "sat" on top of a W12 column.  The webs are aligned and there are stiffeners added.  A small (W14ish) beam frames into the beam at the centerline of the column.  What guidelines are there for the "kicking out" of the top of the column?  Is the column truly braced at that level?
