partition load

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: partition load

IBC 2000 clearly states that if the design live load is less than 80psf for an office building and the partition layout is unknown, a partition live load of 20psf shall be included.  Can this 20psf partition live load be reduced (liveload reduction)?
