Determine the uniform load on joist if the maximum total load is 200 psf and the joists are spaced every
Given: Maximum total load = 150 psf. Sheathing = 1-inch plywood in the strong direction. Joists: 2- by
4-inch. Stringers: single 4- by 4-inch. Determine the maximum stringer spacing in inches.
Determine the uniform load on the stringers if the maximum total load is 275 per square foot, the
sheathing is 3/4-inch plywood in the weak direction, the joists are 4- by 4-inch at 15 inches on center, and the
stringers are 4- by 6-inch at 49 inches on center.
Determine the allowable load (in pounds) on the shore based on end-bearing stresses between the shore
and the stringer, if you are using 4- by 4-inch stringers and 6- by 6- by 10-inch shores. The stringers can carry
350 pounds per square inch in compression perpendicular (CY) to their grain. Both members are made with
