Back to back parallel flange / spacer beamIn projects such as loft conversions or roofs it is preferable to replace a deep beam with two smaller beams. To ensure stability to buckling, these beams are bolted together and this is where a spacer beam is used.
Cranked beamA cranked beam is an angled beam with two kinks, which makes a 90-degree angle. Main function of this beam is to support roof structures due to their shape. Added to this, full penetration welds are used for these connections to carry the load.
Top plateTop plate is commonly used to when beam is smaller than the wall and needs to be resized.
HaunchThe main principle principle of a haunch beam is framing into the columns reduces the design moment and deflection of the beams.
StiffenerA stiffener is a secondary section that is attached to beam webs or flanges. It's goal is to stiffen them from any deformations.
Flitch plateThis structure is generally attached to the flitch beam. The main reason why these plates are needed is to connect to timber joists at a point where shear and bending occurs.
Splice connectionSplices are used when a beam is too heavy or too long to install or transport safely. The flange plates need to be at least the same thickness as the beam's flange, and the same rule applies to the web plates.
Bottom plateBottom plate is attached to a beam and its role is to support timber joists or brickwork. This connection is welded to one side of the beam in order to effectively support brickwork.
