RE: "Service" Loads

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

They are service-level loads. That is, they are the loads expected to occur 
 from what you know, prior to combination to obtain your design load cases.

Excuse my ignorance, but in the new Simpson anchorage software program, it 
asks to input "Service" loads- are these "strength" or "ASD" loads? I 
believe it is "strength, but want to make sure and I am not getting a 
response from Simpson, (because the question is too stupid?), but 2 
engineers I have asked have given me opposite answers.
