Dear, Good Day, We built a house in 1992 without finishing, there are many cracks appear on the wall after some year. I plan to do complete the house but unable to take any decision on the crack. Appreciate for your assistant to complete the house with your great advice. Please revert back, I will forward the snap shots.
Thanks & Regards, Fazl

I have a shed that i need to build. The building length is 17614mm long and 5914mm Wide
Its a cathedral ceiling and i do not want trusses.
I want it made out of timber the only problem i have is that there is no beam for the ridge that is 17614mm long. My thoughts are that if i put a beam LVL spanning from outside wall to outside wall (5914mm Long) and place a ridge prop off that beam say every 6m is that do able and can someone assist me with the sizes of the strutting beam ridge prop and the ridge beam sizes. The roof is only been cladded with Corrugated iron and there is 450mm over hang . The pitch of the roof is 25 degrees.
Any advice would be great

I'm a student so am still learning, anyway I think I know what a continuous beam is: a beam that spans more than two supports. I have a project to design a building however going through lecture notes for preliminary design I have come across this:
'Based on the practice of experienced designers a number of “rules of thumb” have been suggested to propose the initial size of members. For instance some designers use the following “rules of thumb” for the preliminary sizing of RC beams:
for simply supported beams: h>=L/16
for beams with one end continuous: h>=L/18.5
for beams with both ends continuous: h>=L/21
for cantilever beams: h>=L/8
where h= height of the beam, L= length of span'
Now I can't seem to find anything anywhere else that differs between continuous beams, and nor can I think what it might mean. I feel stupid asking this but no one seems to know and my lecturer has been ignoring me :/ I possibly thought he may not mean a continuous beam as such but be referring to an overhang but given that the building I am designing is a general grid layout I don't think anything is overhanging so am just a bit puzzled. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

What is R.C.C (Reinforced Cement Concrete) Lintel? Why these RCC lintels are popular and used widely?
I know there are differences between soffit and back arch. Can anyone explain this to me?
