I’m looking at precast lintel load table, and found the PLF = ‘allowable shear value’ x 2 / ‘span’ does NOT equal the allowable linear loads listed. In fact they are generally much lower (for the case a 6.5ft 8x8 the allowable listed is around 1200 while the max for allowable shear is only around 900). Even more so, backing into the allowable PLF based on bending does not produce the value listed for allowable PLF. It actually tends to give a slightly higher allowable – so I know it isn’t a matter where in is bearing area is the work point being assumed, as I’m basing my numbers on the full 6.5; span without consideration for the min 4” bearing at end.
So what am I missing here?
