maximum concrete pressure (step 6) by the stud spacing (step 7). The ULS is measured in

pounds per linear foot. Compute as follows:

Use the actual concrete pressure, not the adjusted value that was used to obtain the

stud spacing in step 7.

Carry out the answer to two decimal places.

EXAMPLE:

Determine the ULS if the maximum concrete pressure is 410 psf and the maximum stud

spacing is 18 inches.

Find the uniform load in the left-hand column. If the value for the load is not listed in

the table, adjust up to the next value given. For example, for 840 pounds per linear

foot, use 900 pounds per linear foot.

Move to the right across this row to the column headed by the correct size of the stud

being used. The intersecting number is the maximum wale spacing.
