RE: UPLIFT

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Per IBC 1609.1.3; "...the dead load shall be taken as the minimum dead load
likely to be in place during a design wind event.  Where the alternate basic
load combinations of Section 1605.3.2 are used, only two thirds of the
minimum dead load likely to be in place during a design wind event shall be
used."
I always use 2/3 of the dead load or less.

Any reference on what percentage of the dead loads can be used when figuring
the net up lift on open web joist.

Thanks in advance.
