Are Roof Top Units considered Dead or Live Loads?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've had different answers from various Senior Engineers.  Some say that since the RTU weight does not vary in magnitude and location, it is a DEAD LOAD.  Others say that if the RTU is changed or moved in the future, it's weight and location would be considered a LIVE LOAD.  

Any help is appreciated.
