load forget


hello I want to know what are the essential load or rather the loads that most cases engineering civil engineering forget their size of the works (in a new petrochemical project) thank you

RE: load forget

I understand ESL but ... "forget" ? do you mean "apply" ?

I expect most answers will be "refer to construction codes".

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?

RE: load forget

In my opinion, back in the days of allowable stress design it was less likely that an engineer would forget to apply a code-prescribed load. Now, with all the various code-prescribed load combinations, it is more likely to occur. Mind you, I didn't say justifiable; just more likely, or, more possible, if you will. Hopefully it doesn't happen often.

RE: load forget

If you're doing petrochemical work, get a copy of PIP STC01015. It defines a lot of common petrochemical load values and cases. It's also likely that any reasonably sized client has their own standards. There are also local building regulations to look at.

RE: load forget


yes it's true sorry, I know what is the load that must take more predence in the dimensions of different books.
