    Default tread plate guidelines

    Can anyone suggest some guidelines, or give some links to guidelines, for designing with treadplate? What I have in mind is a flooring application. I am interested in thicknesses and support spacing for various loading profiles.

    I think I would be more interested in steel, but info on aluminum would also be helpful.

    Thanks.

    check out www.aisc.org. They have design tools available. I don't know if there's anything specific to treadplate...

    Any more thoughts? I have been all over the internet looking for design guidelines but haven't found much... certainly not enough to give much guidance for planning and design purposes.

    A specific question: How about 1/8" steel tread plate supported on a two foot span. How much weight do you think it could safely bear? What about 3/16" inch aluminum?

    the current aisc manual of steel construction has a section on tread plate i beleive. I dont have mine handy so I cant confirm.
