Sistering Deck Support Beams

Posted by Brent Altman on October 10th, 1997 06:21 PM

I have the need to span a large area for an overhead deck. Is there an advantage to sandwiching the beam on both sides with a "partial" sister. For example a four foot sister in the middle of a twelve foot span. Is there a formula for calculating the load improvement.
