Hi Sir,House already constructed of G 1 (Area 1536 sft each floor)10 no of columns - 15x9 inchescenter 2 columns - 18x9 inchesAll corner beams and 1 center beam are of 15x9 inchesone of the beam is missing in first floor, when I ask my engineer he said beam is not laid because it has to pass through Hall area and no need to worry as load will be directly transferred to column.Now I have constructed 2 floor and pent house with internal walls of 4 inches red brick.. my question is that ok to run 4 inch red brick wall on slab without any beam under it.

|Hi, It is always advisable to have a beam beneath the walls. The beam helps in distributing the load of the walls to the columns next to it. |
If in any unavoidable situations you have to construct a wall, use AAC/CLC block only. They weight 1/3 the weight of bricks and will reduce the chances of any failure of slab. For House Construction
, it is always advised to go with professionals who have good knowledge on such issues.

Does it mean slab do not transfer its load to nearest beam and then to column.. Before AAC blocks, how 4 inch internal red brick walls are constructed? please advice.
