I told the Commission that we were using higher unit stresses than any practice has established, and we've put the dead load
at a low estimate.
Well, we've tried Jackson's Island a little, and we can try it again some time; and there's the old ha'nted house up the Still-House branch, and there's lots of dead- limb trees -- dead loads
The porter said, "Oh, certainly; the old man's got dead loads
The ductility index of the UB-GR-300-T and UB-NG-300-T with the initial damage induced by the dead load
before strengthening showed a slight decrease by comparison with UB-GR-0-T and UB-NG-0-T, because the steel reinforcements in tension have been yielded due to the dead load
before strengthening, which lead to the generation of residual deformation after unloading.
Also, the multiplier for the long-term deflection due to the superimposed dead load
at any time can be expressed by the following equation:
Both the 1980 and 2010 National Building Codes listed three possible combinations of dead load
, snow load, and wind load as outlined in Sun (2013).
This factor is obtained making the ratio between the load at which each specimen reaches the permissible active deflection for the partition walls and the total standard load (total dead load
+ total live load).
while the thrust force associated with the effect of the dead load
g can be obtained from the following:
The calculation results showed that the cement-based overlay may increase the dead load
by 6.5%, compared with the average dead load
of common pavement, and the reduction of the stress peak value could be 80%.
The moment diagram included the impact of self-weight (DL), superimposed dead load
(SDL), live load (LL), top prestressing tendons (TP) and bottom prestressing tendons (BTP).
(9) If constant load effect such as dead load
participates in the combination with other load effects, it should be combined with the dead load
effect within T (such as 75 years) period.
