    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements for establishing the minimum dead and live loads in the structural design of buildings and structures. This edition is presented in limit states format. A new section on load combinations has now been included.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements for establishing the minimum dead, live, wind, and snow loads, as well as load combinations to be used in the limit state design of structures and members. This Standard does not provide criteria on load combinations for permissible stress design. For permissible stress design, the dead loads and live loads given in Sections 3 and 4 are used unfactored.
