Need Details on Deck Load Capacity
I have read several articles regarding how to design a deck to support a particular load. For example, a deck to support 50 psf, 10 dead and 40 live.
But I don't know how to convert this idea of live load to actual people or things.
For example, if I have a deck that should support 40 psf of live load, how many people can safely stand on the deck? How many 50 lb planters?
