what is the chance of sustaining load if beam is 20 feet long as center pillar of house is removed in first floor and added 20 feet long beam with 20 mm rods in RCC beam?

House details :: 30*40 sq feet, g+2 storied building.

  • $\begingroup$ What have you looked for? Building regulations in most countries specify the calculations to use along with safety factors. You also need to supply details of the beam, a 4*4 in pine or steel rsg with a 20” depth @ 10” width? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hi Mike, Frankly no safety factors seen, to construct pillar 4*4 feet deep and four 16mm and two 12 mm steel rods are used $\endgroup$ Nov 13, 2018 at 5:36
  • $\begingroup$ This question is impossible to answer on this site. You'll need to hire a licensed engineer to look at your particular case. See this question to understand why. $\endgroup$
