Structural Layout Vignette and Multiple Choice

custom alternate... testing soon

Postby lule99 » Tue Aug 29, 2017 12:03 pm

Hey guys, coach, please check my layout.
1.I wonder if I should have put a beam on top of window wall at reception on lower floor... I considered that this window wall goes all the way to upper roof... that is why I did not include a beam above it on lower floor.
2. is ok to put beams supporting upper walls on south walls of reception and cafeterias?
3; Ok to solve the vignette without using bearing walls at all?

Thanks in advance! This is my last test, hope I can nail it!

None of the lower N-S beams at cafeterias and reception should be there unless those are clerestory locations.

2. is ok to put beams supporting upper walls on south walls of reception and cafeterias?

Not just ok, but required.

3; Ok to solve the vignette without using bearing walls at all?

Absolutely.

Coach, one more question - are beams required above and below clerestory or just below?

Always below. If required above it will have nothing to do with the clerestory.

Thank you coach! I have questions in attachment... Just want to make sure about beams in the 3 locations shown in plan...

Another question, even in case I do not need beams in any of 3 locations... do I still need to draw columns under higher roof?

If the red locations are clerestories, then you need lower beams. Technically, they wouldn't be clerestories but if that's what the program says, then treat them as such.

If there are no clerestories at purple and green locations, then there should be no lower beams,

Do not confuse window wall with clerestory, they are two different things.

Absolutely. Any columns shown on upper level must continue to ground.
