SECTION 1607 - ALTERNATE FLOOR LIVE LOAD REDUCTION

As an alternate to Formula (6-1), the unit live loads set forth in Table 16-A may be reduced in accordance with Formula (7-1) on any member, including flat slabs, having an influence area of 400 square feet or more.
(7-1)
For SI:

WHERE:

= influence area, in square feet. The influence area AI is four times the tributary area for a column, two times the tributary area for a beam, equal to the panel area for a two-way slab, and equal to the product of the span and the full flange width for a precast T-beam.

L = reduced design live load per square foot of area supported by the member.

= unreduced design live load per square foot of area supported by the member (Table 16-A).

The reduced live load shall not be less than 50 percent of the unit live load for members receiving load from one level only, nor less than 40 percent of the unit live load for other members.
