#54364, "RE: Titanic deck supports"
In response to In response to 7


          

Hello Brady, nice 3D modelling.
In general the deck beams go all the way across to the opposite side. The exceptions are anywhere the floor plans show an opening in the deck, such as holds, engine rooms, boiler rooms, boiler uptakes, staircases, elevator shafts. These places would be framed by beams going around the opening. The small ones would likely be the same size beam but the large ones might have a heavier beam running fore and aft between columns so as to pick up the load above all the deck beams cut off in that area. If you are just modelling the "Big Piece" you may end up cutting the beams off with a drafter's zig zag or lazy "S" line at a length that fits your drawing space.

You might also consider the camber of the deck beams in your drawing. All the beams were curved so that the midpoint of a full width 92 foot beam was 3 inches higher than at ship side. Shorter beams towards each end of the ship kept the same curve. An online calculator for chord, height and radius gives the radius as 4232.125 feet.

Bill
