Utilization factor for deck beams

Utilization factor for deck beams

Utilization factor for deck beams

Is there an utilization factor for the deck beams that they are initially designed to?

RE: Utilization factor for deck beams

Yes, under 1.0

RE: Utilization factor for deck beams

I’d order as many as you need, so you utilize them all.
Or, try some different terminology; do you mean factor of safety, margin of safety or allowable over stress, and under what conditions, etc? You should describe your problem in more detail, with enough design info. so as to generate some meaningful discussion, without our having to guess at what you want.
