Tie Beam Foundation Design

What is a Beam?

A beam is a structural element used in construction to support loads. Beams are usually made out of steel or wood, and they can be either long and flexible or short and stiff. The beams that form the floors of buildings are an example of this type of structure.

There are several ways you can build your own beams from scratch using materials such as wooden planks, but it’s very difficult to achieve a stable design with them; however, you could make one by using two halves connected together with a hinge allowing for movement when force is applied per the angle at which each half meets (similar to scissor joints).

What is a Tie Beam?

A tie beam is a structural element that ties together the two sides of an exterior wall. The tie beam may be made of wood, steel, or concrete

Purpose of Tie Beam.

The purpose of a tie beam is to provide additional support for walls and ceilings in buildings with large spans

Tie beams are used to support a house’s roof and can be made of steel, wood, or concrete.  There are different types of tie beams based on how they’re installed:

  • Tie beam
  • Cantilever tie beam
  • Continuous tie beam

What is a Tie Beam Foundation Design?

A tie beam foundation is a type of basement floor supported by beams. The tie beams are generally made from concrete and help to support the walls above it as well as keep them straight.

The tie beam foundation design is a structural engineering solution that provides stability to the residential building. It can be used in many commercial projects as well.

This type of foundation system has been introduced only recently. Still, it is one of the most commonly preferred options by architects and contractors because of its ease of installation, durability, and cost-effectiveness.

The entire structure consists primarily of beams made from steel or wood that are connected at right angles to each other, with vertical columns that run through these beams.

Footing Tie Beam Design Example

The tie beam is the main structural member of a house. It supports the rafters and roof covering materials, which in turn support the wall sheathing, exterior siding (if any), and finally, the load of the building itself.

The size or span required for your tie beam will depend upon several factors.

A tie beam is recommended when the height of the column increases from the range of 4 to 5 meters.
