Civil Engineering/parking plaza design


good afternoon sir

i am designing a parking plaza what live load should i consider for passanger cars.

thanx and regards

Dear Zain

It is related to the code of practice and the type of vehicle on the parking roof. If the parking is designed for trucks or so then the live load may be very huge. For example may be the parking is considered for fire fighting trucks. Then please refine your design concerns and then consult your local code of practice.
