What Joel said.

Without any idea what you're actually trying to accomplish, we might as 
well be planning a manned Mars landing.

Jayantha --

Do you realize that you've just asked an e-mail list to give you what would 
 probably take 4-5 upper level college courses to cover?  I'm not sure what 
 kind of help you're expecting to get.  As Andrew said, if this is a real 
project, you need to hire a qualified structural engineer.  If you're a 
young engineer in over your head, you need to be working for and mentored 
by a qualified structural engineer.  If you're a student, and you're doing 
a design project for school, then it sounds like you need to be hitting the 
 books, forming study groups with your peers, and getting help from your 
professors and their teaching assistants.
