Please advise whether plate load can be considerd along with other gravity loads for creation of EUDL and assigned to GLD.parameter
2. Self weight consists of the total weight of structure. My view is that only a portion of selfweight meaning thereby that excluding the weight of vertical members i.e. columns should be assigned to GLD parameter under IS13920 because the selfweight of columns has nothing to contribute to the EUDL.
I would like to be enlightened by the Senior members whether my perception is in order or it requires to be further fine tuned.
