   • Long Spans may have to be braced to prevent rotation and twist.
• Beam loading data already includes the weight of the member. This weight will have to be deducted in order to arrive at the net allowable load said beam span will carry.
• Maximum allowable uniformly distributed loads are listed for simple spans consisting of a beam on two supports. If a load is to be concentrated at center of span, multiply the given load by 0.5 and corresponding deflection by 0.8.
