Load of a single person in kN:

1. Number of people in the building: 85,500.
2. m2 per person: 0.35.
3. Total Imposed Floor Load (kN/m2): 3.00.
4. Total for non-human items (Partitions + Non-Human Items) (kN/m2): 0.00.
5. Total for non-human items in kg per square metre:

Floor Loading can also known as the load that a floor of a unit or building may be able to carry or withstand when the load is distributed in a uniform manner. In Singapore, it is usually calculated in kilonewton per meter square or KN/m2. It is sometimes also known as live load.

#### What are the 5 types of loads?

Types of Loads on Structures – Buildings and Other Structures

• Other Loads and Effects acting on Structures.

What is the minimum live load for a floor?

40 pounds per square foot
U.S. building codes specify a uniform live load of 40 pounds per square foot (psf) for most residential floor designs. This load is intended to account for the large number of loads that can occur in a residence.

Floor load capacity is the total maximum weight a floor is engineered to support over a given area. In the U.S. it is expressed as pounds per square foot. Floors are engineered to carry a maximum static load and a maximum dynamic load that can’t be exceeded without the risk of compromise to the structure.

## What are the common types of loads?

Different types of loads in buildings and structures

### What are the six types of foundation?

Types of Foundation and their Uses

• Shallow foundation. Individual footing or isolated footing. Combined footing. Strip foundation. Raft or mat foundation.
• Deep Foundation. Pile foundation. Drilled Shafts or caissons.

Generally, the customary floor dead load is 10-12 PSF (pounds per square foot) for floors, 12-15 PSF for roof rafters and 20 PSF for roof trusses. However, these may increase when a heavy finish material, such as brick veneer walls or tile floors/roofs, is specified.

How much weight can a 2×10 floor support?

1,200 lbs.
Each 2×10 will support 1,200 lbs.

How to calculate floor load capacity?

How to Calculate Floor Load Capacity 1 Live Loads and Dead Loads. Floors must be able to support two different kinds of weight loads. 2 Building Codes and Limits. Local building codes specify the minimum live load that floors must be able to bear. 3 Span Tables and Design Values. 4 Determining Load Limits.
