The floors of a warehouse must be ex pected to carry a much greater live load than those of an apartment house. The roof of a building in Colorado must support a much heavier load of snow than one in Alabama. The public areas of a building, its corridors and halls, which at times may be jammed with people, must be designed for larger live loads than a private room. Live-load calculations are lengthy and important, although not very demanding on the imagination and intelligence of the engineer.
What kind of human effort was required to build such colossal works? We owe to the investigations of Dr. Kurt Mendelssohn, a German physicist and passionate pyramidologist, the estimates of the labor that went into the erection of the main pyramids built during 100 years at Meidum, Dashur, and Gizeh. Between them, these three pyramids re quired 25 million tons of materials, including limestone, mortar, and brick. Mendelssohn divides the workers into two groups. The first con sisted of unskilled masons who quarried the local stone, built the ramps, and lifted the blocks, and of auxiliary workers who lubricated the sledges with water, fed the gangs, and repaired the transport lines.
This is a most conservative allowance, but engineers must be conservatiYe when confronted with the uncertainties of live loads. It is better to run scared than to be responsible for a failure which may damage property and even kill people. On the other hand, the chances are absolutely minimal that each square foot of each room at each floor of a building will be loaded a t the same time by the full code allowance, and buildings designed for this absurd assumption would become unjustifiably expensive.
