**Different Load Calculation on Column, Beam, Wall & Slab**

- Column = Self Weight x Number of floors.
- Beams = Self Weight per running meter.
- Wall Load Per Running Meter.
- Total Load on Slab (Dead Load + Live Load +Wind Load + Self-Weight)

## How do you calculate beam loads?

The load per foot of beam is determined the same way as for headers.

Ridge Beam Example.

1st floor live load: | 40 psf x 12 ft = 480 pounds per lineal foot |
---|---|

2nd floor live load: | 30 psf x 12 ft =360 pounds per lineal foot |

2nd floor dead load: | 10 psf x 12 ft =120 pounds per lineal foot |

total load: | =1160 pounds per lineal foot |

## How do you size a structural beam?

**The sizing steps are:**

- determine the total load and live load per foot of beam.
- identify the type of load you are supporting (roof snow, non snow or floor)
- pick the span you need.
- match the total load and live load values to the values listed in the tables. The thickness and depth of the required member will be listed.
