Fwd: Load Spread on Concrete Floor Slabs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What distance would you spread out a wheel load from a forklift on a 
concrete floor slab that has support beams every 5' o.c. if you know the 
floor thickness, flexural reinforcement, temperature reinforcement, 
contact area (7" x 4" approx), wheel spacing and wheel load.  Is there 
any recommendations, references or rules of thumb?  To date I have not 
found any insight.  Thanks in advance.
