Default Eccentric Loading

I have designed a beam using pro steel which requires a 10mm plate welded
to it to support an outer leaf over bifold doors, the councils checking engineers
want the eccentric loading checked to see its within the beams capacity any clues how we do this ?

Default Re: Eccentric Loading

This falls outside ProSteel's capabilities, since the load on the plate will induce torsion on the beam. That said, I would not be too concerned if the load on the plate was negligible as compared with the load on the main beam.
