General
Indications for Load Tables
The load is rated within the limits of the elastic stretch
of the material (permissible elastic limit). The deflection of
the material is limited to 10mm. For higher values, the
load table must be newly calculated.
For neighbouring
panels,
each deflection must not exceed the value of 4mm, otherwise
the panels must be screwed together. The difference between
the values of two neighbouring panels must not exceed 4mm.
In
practice we are confronted with the following types of load
:
 Uniformely
distributed load  vertically active against the panel
surface [kN]
 Single
load  active over the total width of the panel and
uniformely distributed over a basic area of B x 20cm.
In this case, the load must be calculated in the most
unfavourable position.
 The
values for the load and the loaded area are calculated
due to
DIN/EN/ISO1055  page 3 or DIN/EN/ISO1072.
 For
example
: for passable constructions the total wheel load
can be calculated from single loads.
The
permissible load of a construction can be increased
by the installation of additional supports
 up to circa 37%.
The permissible load of a
construction can be increased
by screwing together of two neighbouring panels  up to circa 23%.
