Dead Load (DL): 100 psf (=lb/ft 2 ) for floor, and 80 psf for the roof. Live Load (LL): L 0 = 50 psf (on the floor); and L r = 35 psf (on the roof) Wind Load (W): 30 psf uniform in N-S direction. Required: 1. Specify the load paths (how the loads are transferred from where they are originated to the Foundation/Footing). 2. Loads on B1. 3. Loads on Girder G1.
