Strength and stability - walls.

Monday, January 3, 2011

To provide adequate shelter a wall should have sufficient strength and stability to be self-supporting and to support roofs and upper floors. To differentiate the structural requirements of those walls that carry the loads from roofs and upper floors in addition to their own weight from those that are freestanding and only carry their own weight, the terms Ioadbearing and non-loadbearing are used. In practice nonloadbearing, internal walls are often described as partitions.
