The proportioning of main members joined by such connections shall be predicted upon no greater degree of end restraint than this minimum. (j) Type 2 and 3 construction may necessitate some non-elastic but self-limiting deformation of the structural steel part. Section 4.03: Loads and Forces Dead Load. (a) The dead load to be assumed in design shall consist of the weight of steelwork and all material permanently fastened thereto or supported thereby. Live Load. (a) The live load shall be that stipulated by the Code under which the structure is being designed or that dictated by the conditions involved. Impact. (a) For structures carrying live loads which induce impact, the assumed live load shall be increased sufficiently to provide for same. (b) If not otherwise specified, the increase shall be For supports of elevators............................................... 100 per cent For travelling crane support griders and their connection ............................. 25 per cent For supports of light machinery shaft or motor driven not less than............................
