RE: Checker plate info required.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What you are looking for is in ASTM A786 Rolled Steel Floor Plates or ASTM A793 Rolled Floor Plate, Stainless Steel. These standards basically call out the pattern for the checker plate, but you have to specify the thickness and steel grade yourself. These standards do not include load tables. I would assume something like A36 and and design accordingly.

Subject: Checker plate info required.

I am trying to find design load tables for checker plate.  I have a catwalk that requries checker plate for the walking surface. Can anyone point me to a resource that would list the design loads, deflections and material properties.  I have checked all our in-house design manuals and product catalogs but did not have any luck.
