Design of Reinforced Concrete Transfer Wall - Bond University,
Student Accommodation Building

Courtesy of David Bell - BG Group Brisbane, QLD Australia

This is a two storey high load-bearing concrete wall with three floor slab loads on
it. The line support across the bottom edge is a column, therefore the
wall acts as a deep transfer beam.

The load across the top edge is larger because it represents the load from 4
storeys above.
