Live Load Reduction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For beam design, I have LL1=150psf (storage) and LL2=50psf (MEP).
Can I use LL reduction according to IBC2006?
Combined LL is 200psf, which is greater than 100psf.
So, I can not use LL reduction.
But, can I apply LL reduction only to LL2=50psf?
And then, reduced LL2+150psf can be used for LL.
I am looking forward to your response.
