## How to Repair Damaged Beams and Walls in Load Bearing Construction?

## chrisjackson

The same principle works for load-bearing walls but on a larger scale. When you or a contractor remove a load-bearing wall, it must be replaced with either: Beam only: A horizontal structural beam of sufficient size. Other than the two ends, the beam has no vertical bearing points.

The mix 1:2:4 represents the M15 grade of concrete, which means the concrete formed with this ratio has a compressive strength of 15 kN/m^2. 1:2:4 represents the amount of cement, fine aggregate (sand) and coarse aggregate to be added during batching of concrete.

If we need to calculate Water quantity for concrete, first find the cement content for the volume. Therefore, Required amount of water = 0.5 X 50 kg = 25 litres / 50 kg cement bag. For the Design mix, the W/C ratio will depend upon the workability, strength requirements.
