Any one know what the per sq inch lb rating for a concrete block wall is?
Have a block wall with a 14 foot(21lbs per) 10" steel beam with 2 stories loaded on it. I thought it was fine, I fiiled the 2 stretchers with mortar and rebar to each side.
A phisics professor from a local school said no way, even has my customer covinced, The SE said it's fine. To no avail. Customer wants steel post.
I know I've done this a hundred times and the deal is done and said, but I was wondering what you fellas thought.
