Live load / occupancy correlation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Is there an accepted average weight per person for purpose of correlating between a floor live load rating and a maximum occupancy number?  For example, if a 10ft x 10ft room has a floor rating of 40psf live load (assume 100% human live load), how many people could the room support?
I can't find any such reference in ASCE and Google is coming up short on this one.
