You could obviously design above and beyond the minimum interior loading per code, but finding precise interior pressures will be difficult since this would clearly need field testing once all walls were erected, and once all walls were erected, you better already have the walls designed!! So I guess its fair to say, I always use the code min. (5psf for UBC97) unless I see fit to increase it for a special condition.

Does any one design interior walls using the interior pressures or only what required by local codes?
