Hello Friends,

 

Today i will tell you the Difference between a  Load bearing Structure & Framed Structure.

 

 

 

 Load bearing Structure & Framed Structure

No.

               Load bearing structure

Framed structure

1

Almost all the walls are load bearing walls.

All the walls are partition walls or screen walls None of the wall is load bearing .

2

Almost all the walls are provided with shallow or deep foundations.

All the walls rest on plinth beam and not provided with any footing or foundations.

3

All load bearing walls are taken deep into the subsoil for foundation.

Only columns are taken deep into the subsoil and are provided with footings.

4

Load bearing walls are constructed of bricks or stones.

Columns , beam and slabs are constructed of R.C.C.

5

Thickness of load bearing walls in any case is not less than 200 mm.

Only exterior walls are of thickness 200 mm and all interior walls are of thickness 100 mm or less.

6

A load bearing wall when once constructed shall remain in position and should never be dismantled.

The walls of framed structure can be shifted at any place as they are lighter and not load bearing.

7

Too many openings for doors, windows, ventilators, etc. are not permissible.

There are no such restriction in framed structure. The space between two columns can be kept fully or partially open as per planning and requirements.

8

Plans for different floors remain same as every wall on the upper floors must be a corresponding wall in continuation of the wall of lower floor.

Planning for each floor is independent and free from whatever the planning of lower floor.

9

It requires soil of good bearing capacity like rocks,sandy soil,gravelly soil, etc.

Even in the case of soil with poor bearing capacity, piles may be driven until hard stratum is reached  and R.C.C. columns are constructed over them.

10

Best suited for small residential houses, rural houses and houses up to three story.

Best suited for multi storied and high rise buildings, commercial complexes, public buildings, etc.
