We already fabricate an I beam 150x75x14 (tw=5, tf=7).suddenly the client want us to increase the design loads. The solution we came up is to add a plate at the bottom flange. and the thickness of the plate is 9mm. The question is it ok to have a thicker additional plate than the thickness of the flange. or is there any other restriction on adding plate on I beam section. Thank you in advance
