# ASCE 7-10, Fluid load factor for basic combinations for strength and allowable stress design

In ASCE 7-10, with regards to strength design,for fluid load, it mentions that where fluid loads are present, they shall be included with the same load factor as dead load D in combination 1 through 5 and 7. How about for load combination 6?

Load combination 6 is as follows:

0.9D + 1.0W,


which I expected to be

0.9D + 0.9F + 1.0W


However due to the statement in ASCE 7-10, I do not know what factor to assume for fluid load as fluid load will be present in my situation. The same applies to Allowable stress design load combination albeit with different combination.
