How do I calculate the floor load spec for the gantry?
Is it the total weight divided by the area under the outside edges of the foot pads? 3832 lbs / 11.67 ft^2 = 328.6 lbs/ft^2?
Is it the max point load from each foot pad? 1556 lbs/15.9 in^2 = 97.86 lbs/in^2 = 14092 lbs/ft^2? (this seems insanely high).
The only floor load specification calculation example that I have is from an IBM site preparation manual that uses service load and static load areas, as well as live load and static load constants.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
