RE: ASD vs LRFD...my simple test

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Just for fun I ran an analysis with RamSteel 6.1.

This was for a typical two story composite floor, non-composite roof. Same framing plan at each level. 13' floor heights. 65# dead, 50# live at the floor, 15# dead and 20# live at the roof.

ASD results:
	Roof - 59961#
	Floor - 73440# + 932 studs
	Columns - 21477#

LRFD results:
	Roof - 57531# (4% reduction)
	Floor - 62696# (15% reduction) + 964 studs (3% increase)
	Columns - 21477 (no change)
