Example to Determine Slab Load Per Leg
Mar 31, 2017
W x L x Weight of Slab = Load per leg for Conc. Slab 4’9″ = 3.25
3.25 x 8 x 162.5 lbs/ft2 = Load per Leg for Conc. Slab only
4225 lbs. = Load per Leg for Conc. Slab only
Beam Load Per Leg + Slab Load Per Leg =Total Load Per Leg lbs. + 4225 lbs. – Total Load lbs. = Total Load Per Leg for above example
NOTE: Compare with leg and beam capacity. See load tables and beam charts. Increase or decrease leg spacing accordingly, try for maximum capacity.
