Question: the floor system shown below is for a five story...
The floor system shown below is for a five story concrete building. The floor slab is 6 in. thick concrete, and the weight of the mechanical/electrical systems is 5 psf. Assume 15 psf for partition loads, and miscellaneous dead loads of 5 psf. The maximum allowable live load for a typical floor is 30 psf and for the roof is the same.
1. Calculate the ultimate loads on Beam (B-1) assuming that the beam has four spans.
2. Draw the bending moment and shear force diagrams for the same beam.
3. Calculate the ultimate loads on the 14 in. x 14 in. ground floor corner column shown below.
