Ask a Structural Engineering Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello Ray, I can help you with this. I'm away from my computer right now.
Can I get back to you later this afternoon?
Sorry been offline a while. Any times fine.
It looks like my questions disappeared
What is the approximate weight of the chimney? Where along the span does it sit on the beam?
Do you have pictures or sketches you can share?
Thanks for the reply.
Sorry don't know the weight but the chimney breast above is 2.5m high x 1.2 m wide x .300 deep and goes out through the roof and it starts where the small beam on the left is (please see photo)
Sorry for the delay. I had an outage and was unable to get online.
Can you post a plan sketch of the framing to make sure I'm on the same page?
ok thanks. Will leave this for now as am seeing an architect tom so will ask another question if need be. Thanks for your help.
Ok. I'll wait for teh sketch from you
