Hi Ralph, those are/were (LoL) good drawings.
You've brought out a detail I've been missing. The Engineering drawings of the Olympic show gussets or brackets at the bottom of the aft bulkhead webs but the Britannic picture shows none. My guess is that this is a detail that was changed between the ships. Trying to lay your drawing over the Engineering floor plan also brought out that the webs are spaced at 33" not 32" as I had previously said. Lastly the web flanges are clearly much wider on the Britannic, I suspect they would be similar on the Olympic.

At the top of the center web I wonder if that is filled in as much as you suggest because there are a couple of pipes passing through here. The gusset between frames 27-28 may be the fore-aft girders under F deck, BR2 has a similar look.

Hi Steve, here's my go at the columns and beams in the room.
-each of the columns needs the inverted Y feet to allow walking between the boilers.
-in the aft row of columns the middle two don't show in the plan.
-underneath F deck the heavy forward fore-aft girders appear to be made of plate and are in line with smokestack casing rather than the inner columns
-the similar aft forward fore-aft girders are slightly inboard from the outer columns. I can't quite make sense of them
-I suspect there are light girders between the columns at the G deck level for supporting the catwalks
