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.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
