Basis for calculations

All calculation for the roof and the deck are based upon:

  • Deck loading of 40 psf live load and 15 psf dead load for a total of 55 psf.
        • Deck under bar will require a 6,000 lbf load distributed over a 120 ft² area (50 psf) raising the load requirement to 105psf
  • Roof Loading of  10 psf live load and 10 psf dead load for a total of 20 psf.
  • 2,000 psf soil
  • l/360 for the deck
  • l/180 for the roof
