RE: Collateral - Dead or Live?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I list it as a live load.  The reason I do is because it is possibly there, or possibly not.  The controlling load combination for footing design is usually 0.6D + W.  This keeps it from being used to resist wind uplift.

                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,
