Hello All,

I am about to start a mechanised car parking turn key product.

Can anyone help me on what loads should be considered for the steel support structure of such mechanised car parks.

1. DL,
2. LL   (how much),
3. imposed load (how much)'
4. may be no WL?? (as enclosed in the building)
5. what about EQ??
6. Impact or jerk load (how much)
7. what else?

Thanks

Ashish Phadke.

Dear Er. Ashish Phadke,

For imposed loads in car parks, refer to IS: 875 (Part 2) - 1987 as applicable to item e) Garages.

For passenger cars and vehicles not exceeding 2.5 tonne gross weight,
uniformly distributed load to be considered is 2.5 kN/m2, and concentrated load to be 9.0 kN.

For vehicles not exceeding 4.0 tonne gross weight, uniformly distributed load to be considered is 5.0 kN/m2, and concentrated load to be 9.0 kN.

For seismic case, the above loads are considered as imposed loads as per IS: 1893 (Part 1) - 2016.

For impact load, IS: 875 (Part 2) - 1987 mentions 20% impact allowance for case of light machinery, shaft or motor units.

I trust you will find the above information useful.

With best wishes,
