Re: Wight of Boxed Materials

Same Military Handbook 1002/2A, lists "paper, writing & calendared at  60 PCF" "piled" to 6 feet, at 360 PSF.   I would agree with Bill Polhemus that the passages w/o that loading (40 PSF LL) should be considered for the overall structure.  I would still design all local structural components for 360 PSF straight.
