1. On individual pile caps or spread footings which are eccentrically loaded, a beam (usually of reinforced concrete) used to distribute horizontal forces to other pile caps or footings; a strap, 2.
2. In roof framing, a horizontal timber connecting two opposite rafters at their lower ends to prevent them from spreading; also see collar beam.

Analysis of stress-strain state structures showed some features of the frames mono-symmetrical I-beams in compare to symmetric profiles: first, due to asymmetrical type of profile the shift of the gravity section center appears, which leads to a redistribution of internal forces in the frame, that requires to adjust rod design scheme frames after sections selecting; secondly, because of the small cross-sectional area it is difficult to ensure the stability of the plane form of bending beams, which leads to the necessity to disconnect the areas curtain beams by the constraints with smaller steps.
When the bark side was removed from the beam, the sixth growth ring and possibly some of the fifth growth ring were lost; therefore the static bending beams consisted of only the first five growth rings after the ice storm.
Because of many common geometries - bending beams, torque tubes, stress sections, and load-zone designs - their part mix is well suited to CAD/CAM technology.
