Impact loads for Concrete Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Are there any increases for impact loads for concrete design?  ACI 318 -  9.2.2 states impact loads are to be included with live loads so they would have a load factor of 1.6.  ASCE 7 doesn’t require any other increase either.  I was wondering if there was any other increase for impact load magnitudes with concrete like there is with steel design, just because they are impact loads. 

 

Thanks.
