Mill Building Construction | by H. G. Tyrrell, C. E.



Mill buildings differ so greatly in character and purpose that it is impossible to formulate tables of dead weights which will suit all cases. The use to which the building is to be put, its location, the character of the roof covering, the presence or absence of cranes, etc., all affect the dead weight, and generally each case must be considered individually. For most purposes of design the loads may be divided into: (1) roof loads; (2) floor loads; (3) crane loads; (4) snow and wind loads, and (5) miscellaneous loads.
