Question

The floor framing plan for a heavy storage warehouse is shown below. Assume D = 28ft, and W= 22ft, and that the slab behavior can be classified as a two-way slab. Do not consider floor live load reductions. The floor is 14" thick, normal-weight reinforced concrete, and supports 20 psfof additional dead load. Using LRFD load combinations, provide the ultimate loading diagrams for members B1, B2 and B3, showing all relevant loading and geometries. Determine the maximum load at columns A2 and B2.
