Activity 3.2.2 Loads

For this Project we had to figure out the loads for the keystone building. 

Live Load: 20 psf.
Snow Load:  So our Snow Load is 20    .7 x 20 = 14  
Dead Load : 34.25
-BUR: 6.5
-Metal Deck: 3
-5in. rigid insulation: 3.75
-Suspended plaster ceiling w/lath: 11
-MEP: 10
Total = 34.25
Design Load : 34.25 + 20 = 54.25
Steel Deck type: type 22
Interior Tributary width: 5
Beam Loading: 271.25
Exterior Tributary width: 2.5
Beam Loading: 135.625
Interior Beam – 24 ft span =   12k5
In this activity I learned how to calculate loads that act on buildings and how to choose the correct joist designation.
