|Publication Date:||1 June 2010|
Purpose and Scope
This Engineering Practice presents probable floor and suspended loads due to building use and methods of applying the loads in building design.
This Engineering Practice includes recommended design loads resulting from livestock, suspended caged poultry, vehicles, and manure stored on a floor. It does not include loads on manure storages, or wind and snow loads, or building design loads covered by ANSI/ASCE-7. Specifications for these applications are included in ASABE Engineering Practice EP393, Manure Storages.
