Moehle Spring 2016 CE 120 - Structural Engineering Homework Problem Assignment Date: 4 March 2016 Due: 11 am, 11 March 2016 The building shown is located in downtown Berkeley. Live load is 50 psf (assume the same load is applied at the roof). Wind Exposure B. Problem 1 –Determine the axial force at the base of a first-story interior column due to unreduced live load. Problem 2 –Repeat Problem 1 but for live load reduced as permitted by ASCE 7. You may assume that the typical floor live load occurs at the roof, although normally different a value would apply. You may also assume that the roof and the floor live loads can be reduced as if they are floor loads.
