Re: Commercial Bldg. - Second Floor Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Tim--

Do you think I should  design the trusses for full live, dead, AND partition 
loads?
I don't understand the crack about " ethics".  I just want to design the 
floor framing correctly.  That's why I'm asking for advice from engineers who 
know more than I do about the subject.  Seems like there is more than one 
school of thought out there on including partitions as a separate load that 
may or may not be permanent and swapping LL values for partitions the UBC 
regards as DL.  I don't think I'm the only one who is confused.   Too bad I'm 
not as brilliant as you are.  You seem to know all the answers.
Have a nice day.
