Rule of Thumb
#1
Hi everyone!

Kindly share your rules of thumb here which are very useful in civil/structural engineering.

The following rules of thumb are useful to me:
1) For every foot span of beam use 3/4 of an inch height for that beam.
2) Size column so that the column area is 0.12% of the area of floor supported.
3) For every story of the building, use 100 mm thickness of raft foundation.
