Per IBC 2012, section 1607.10, floor live loads can be reduced. I am designing a podium two way concrete flat slab, and want to see how much live load I can reduce. There are three wood floors above. Per equation 16-23, AT is tributary area in SF. How do I calculate AT for two way slab? Do I consider one bay (let's say 20'x20') area only or one bay area times 4 (three floors above? As we know, reduction factor depends on AT: higher AT, more we can reduce. Thanks in advance.
