This can't be good...

I went out today and measured the span and pocket of the questionable beam up front, reviewed the floor plan to estimate the load per linear foot.

I wonder if the concrete pocket that the beam sits in counts as a cantilever?  Maybe that would lower my deflection...  I don't think so, though.  Any civil or mechanical engineers want to weigh in?

Beam Design Fails?

Say it ain't so...of course a lot of these parameters were civil-engineer-ese, so I'm not sure I entered them correctly.
