ISO 19902 partial load factors

ISO 19902 partial load factors

ISO 19902 partial load factors

Hi all,

I am currently designing a structure according to a client's specification document. This specification states that "load combinations shall use partial action factors from ISO 19902 Table 8.2-1". Now maybe this is a little cheeky, but I don't really want to spend 200 Swiss Francs on a standard from which I will only get one or two numbers from a single table. Can anyone provide any insight into what the partial factors in Table 8.2-1 from ISO 19902 are? I haven't been able to find any help on the internet.

Thanks in advance

In these cases I've politely requested it from the client and received it. This helps them keep costs down as vendors are certainly want to build the standard purchases into their costs.
