Design Loads on Structures During Construction
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This standard addresses partially completed structures, temporary structures, and temporary supports used during construction. The loads specifi ed herein are suitable for use either with strength design [such as ultimate strength design (USD) or load and resistance factor design (LRFD)] or with allowable stress design (ASD). The loads are equally applicable to all conventional construction materials.
This standard does not specify the party responsible for the design of temporary structures or temporary supports, or for the temporary use of incomplete structures.This standard also does not specify the party responsible for on-site supervision of the construction of temporary structures or temporary supports, or for the use of incomplete structures.
The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum design load requirements during construction of buildings and other structures.
