What is type of load?

The types of loads acting on structures for buildings and other structures can be broadly classified as vertical loads, horizontal loads and longitudinal loads. The vertical loads consist of dead load, live load and impact load. The horizontal loads comprises of wind load and earthquake load.

What is a bending moment?

In solid mechanics, a bending moment is the reaction induced in a structural element when an external force or moment is applied to the element, causing the element to bend. The most common or simplest structural element subjected to bending moments is the beam.

What are support beams called?

A joist is a horizontal structural member used in framing to span an open space, often between beams that subsequently transfer loads to vertical members. When incorporated into a floor framing system, joists serve to provide stiffness to the subfloor sheathing, allowing it to function as a horizontal diaphragm.

What is the strongest beam shape?

The most efficient shape for both directions in 2D is a box (a square shell) however the most efficient shape for bending in any direction is a cylindrical shell or tube. But, for unidirectional bending, the I or wide flange beam is superior.

What are the beams under a house called?

Box Beams. Also known as box girders, box beams are lengths of wood or steel secured at right angles to create what looks like a long, hollow box. Box beams are traditionally made of wood, and three-sided box beams are often attached to ceilings to add visual interest as well as support.

What size beam do I need for a 20 span?

In that case, you need something like a 12-16″ GLULAM or LVL to span the 20′ and can use simple 2×8-10 dimensional lumber 16″OC as floor joists.

How far can a beam span without support?

Subsequently, one may also ask, how far can a 2×8 span without support? In general terms, joists spaced 16 inches on center can span 1.5 times in feet their depth in inches. A 2×8 up to 12 feet; 2×10 to 15 feet and 2×12 to 18 feet.

How far can a 6×6 beam span without support?

Each 6×6 beam only spans 12 feet, of which 2 of those feet are supported by a knee brace. So technically the beams only span 10ft.
