Default Re: help requested !!!!

Came across this and, although its an old post, does anyone know the outcome? I was called to site 3 weeks ago with similar deflection issues (but no splice) on 305x305x197 UC that I designed. Having assessed all loads again and again with each being acceptable I couldn't see how the problem could be? after a sleepless night, plenty of caffeine and a lot of head scratching, i put it to one side (for an hour or so) to do another calculation and, when trawling through the tables I passed the much ignored section on bearing piles!!! guess what i found!! 305x305x186kg UBP
It was an exact match to the site dims (taken with a digital measure calibration)
Phew!! panic over - naughty builder and steel stockholder?
