A beam is a structural feature that mainly resists loads that are laterally applied to the axis of the beam. Its deflection mode is mainly by bending. At the beam’s support points, the loads applied to the beam result in reaction forces.
Beam Structural Works
These would include major underpinning, total replacement of floors, including new joists, damp proof membrane, total replacement of ceilings or roof including new joists/timbers, total re-plastering (back to brickwork) of the entire walls of the majority of the property.
Beams are horizontal rods or planks that carry loads perpendicular to their longitudinal direction. They are supported at both ends of installation and transfer loads from slab to column.
Columns and Beams have been used in construction since the Ancient world. Ancient Egyptians knew the importance of these supports, and the modern-day column-beam-slab system has been adapted from the first basic beams and columns. Ultimately, your structure would not remain upright if it did not have beams and columns to support its weight.
