    Default steel I beam

    steel I beam was prevented to turn on the back side as it was tight against foundation wall, but the visible side did not have anything to prevent it from sliding or turning. It this acceptable practice. thanks

    Really need a picture Daniel in order to give any feedback. You might want to review similar posts regarding connections to get an idea if what you are seeing is proper.

    From what you describe it appears one end of steel I beam is braced well against overturn so itís very doubtful the other, so called open end, could rotate off its support system. As long as it is well supported and securely attached and there is no visual evidence of any problems I wouldn't bother making recommendations for review by a SE.
