Removal of a load bearing wall

I am a Civil Engineering student at Uni of Liverpool, UK. I have an assignment to design a beam to support the removal of a load bearing wall for a 3 storey residential building.

I am not asking anyone to do it for me, but asking if anyone has any links/ copies of any documents with examples of the calculations involving the removal of a load bearing wall.

Many thanks in advance.
Ron.

I don't have any links for you but if I had to do it, I would build temporary support walls on both sides, remove the wall & in it's place, install a steel I-beam header.

wouldn't that defeat the purpose of education ? ce's & architects routinely use pre-sketch'd details on their plans

A beam to temporarily support the structure during wall removal or a beam to replace the load bearing wall ? You are talking about two distinctive issues.

Don't forget about possible shear value.
