RE: live load for heavy equipments

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Being in a mining country, we always get a lot of facilities that have to accomodate some gnarly bits of equipment, like a Catepillar 400 Ton Haul truck.  My advice to you is to get the vehicle weights from several heavy machinery manufactures, like Komatsu, Cat, Dresser, Euclid, and others that may be particular in your area.  Take a couple of worse case scenarios, discuss with the owner what you are looking at, and come up with a plan of attack.  That way, everyone has their bases covered.

Subject: live load for heavy equipments

Dear All,
I have to design an exhibition hall on level two of an RC building, and on this floor there could be some heavy equipments (e.g.: excavators, bulldozers, industrial mechines, etc) on show.
I need an input about live load for the above condition.
Many thanks in advance
Best Regards
