The floor of a heavy storage warehouse building is made of 6-in thick stone concrete. If the floor is a slab having a length of 15 ft and width of 10 ft. Determine the resultant force cause by the dead load and the live load.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Take minimum design dead load for stone concrete as 12 lb/ft2

Take minimum design live load for heavy storage warehouse building as 250 lb/ft2.

Step 2

Calculate the resultant force caused by ...

Resultant force = Warehouse +LL Warehouse = (Design dead load x Thicknessx Area)+(Design live loadx Area) =12 lb/ft2 in.x6in. x(15 ft x 10ft)+250lb/ft x (15 ftx10ft) = 48.300lb
