Unformatted text preview: the 2003 International Building Code to find accepted values for load in classrooms, corridors, and library stacks. I then calculated the current total load and the proposed future load as well as the percent change in the total load. TABLE 1: Results of Calculations Dead Load – Roof 19881 lbs 3 rd Floor 54031 lbs 2 nd Floor 53980 lbs TOTAL DEAD LOAD 127,892 lbs Live Load – Roof 14850 lbs 2 nd Floor 29440 lbs 3 rd Floor (Present) 29440 lbs 3 rd Floor with stacks 45775 lbs TOTAL LIVE LOAD (PRESENT) 73,730 lbs TOTAL LIVE LOAD (WITH STACKS) 90,065 lbs TOTAL LOAD (PRESENT) 201,622 lbs TOTAL LOAD (WITH STACKS) 217,957 lbs The conversion from classroom space to stack space will cause an 8% increase in the vertical load on E8. With that in mind, I believe footing E8 would be able to support the increase in load represented by library stacks. Sincerely, Paul E. Moses, PE Project Engineer...
