Content WALL • Introduction • Types of walls: • Load-bearingwall • Non bearingwall • Difference: Non bearing and Load-bearingWall • Is a Non-bearing-Wall Easy to Build? • Conclusion • References
IntroductionWALL • Verticalstructure • Solid • Defines anarea • Delineates a building • Types of walls: • Load-bearing wall: supports the weight of floors and roofs • Non-bearing wall: supports its own weight
Load-bearingwallWALL • Walls carry the structural weight • Exterior walls support the roof • Front and back walls bearing walls The load-bearing wall of masonry is thickened in proportion to the forces it has to resist
Load-bearingwallWALL • Its thickness can often be reduced at the top thickened either along the whole length • resist lateral forces Buttressing Doors and windows weaken the resistance of the wall thickened in proportion to the width of the opening • vertical masses of wall transfer loads directly to the ground
Load-bearingwallWALL strength of the masonry and the stresses in the wall • Number of openings • Walls in light • wood-framed structures • reinforced-concrete • The nature of the material admits other means of resisting forces than the increase of mass.
Load-bearingwallWALL • Placement of walls the type of support for floors and roofs beam which must be jointed to walls at both ends
Non bearingwallWALL Is a wall construction that only has the purpose of supporting the weight of itself It must be braced to resist minimum 5 psf lateral loads
Non bearingwallWALL • Appears only when loads are carried • other members as in heavy timber and other skeletal structures • Traditional materials are often used light walls of glass, plastic, metal alloys, wood products, etc. • can be equally efficient
WALL • Difference: Non bearing and Load-bearingWall • Bearing wall will have a difference purpose that relates to the structure of the building • A bearing wall could be put in place to help uphold the ceiling • A non bearing wall is interior and supports nothing to do with the structure It simply divides an area
Is a Non-bearing-Wall Easy to Build? WALL • A non bearing wall is actually relatively easy to build. All that is required is a simple on-center frame structure and some drywall.
ConclusionWALL • Load bearing walls must be capable to carry the load of "live" loads that are anticipated to be placed upon the system without deflection that can degrade or negatively impact structural integrity. • Non load bearing walls provide no structural support and may be interior or exterior walls. • Load bearing walls carry the load of the ceiling and roof structure to the foundation. • Non-load bearing walls carry their own weight.
