For 16H4, span = 29 ft:

TOTAL safe uniform LOAD = 175 plf

MAX. LIVE LOAD = 112 plf  (approximate deflection of 1/360 of the span).

Could somebody give me a hand and look up the allowable uniform dead and total loads for an older joist, I have not gotten around to ordering the Historical Jst book yet.


16H4 joist, span = 29 ft


CC me directly at akester(--nospam--at)


Thanks in advance!
