weight of different wall systems??

weight of different wall systems??

does anyone can give me a reference on the weight of different walls systems or a website with this kind of information?
thanks a lot

RE: weight of different wall systems??

Quite a broad question.  What kind of walls?  Masonry?  Depends on the thickness and grout spacings.  Metal stud w/plywood?  metal stud w/EIFS?  Wood stud?
If you are looking for a general answer, then usually a wall that is not masonry is about 10 psf.

RE: weight of different wall systems??

ASCE-7 also has a Dead Load list of wall systems.
