Re: Collateral - Dead or Live?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dead load for gravity. 
Dead load for seismic. 
Not there for load cases where I'm checking uplift (usually wind load governs this one.)

Subject: Collateral - Dead or Live?

                Poll: If you use the term collateral load or if it is used on some of your projects, do you consider it a dead load or a live load?
        Thank you,
