What is a House Load Calculator?
A House Load Calculator is a tool used to estimate the total dead load on a residential structure based on factors such as floor area, number of stories, and construction material.
Dead load includes the weight of the structure itself and permanent fixtures.
Why use a House Load Calculator?
- Structural Design: Essential for designing residential structures that can safely support their own weight and the weight of permanent components.
- Material Selection: Aids in choosing appropriate construction materials based on load-bearing requirements.
- Safety: Ensures that the structure is not overloaded and meets safety standards.
