Section 2.0 - Loads

ID #1173

Does TIA-222-G include any consideration of loads other than wind, ice, and seismic? I am looking at a situation in a coastal floodplain which is subject to flooding, with the possibility of impact loads from loose boats. How should these loads be taken into consideration?

TIA-222-G does not include loading other than those outlined in the design standard. Any other unique local loading conditions, flood plain, etc. should be computed utilizing the appropriate design standard such as ASCE 7.
