I have a concrete steel ceiling. The calculations show the ceiling is designed for 1,5 kN/m² in addition to it's own weight and traffic loads including snow. So I assume I can hang 1,5 kN/m² from that ceiling, provided I use suitable anchors.
However, when I hang any load from that ceiling, I apply discrete point loads. I probably cannot simply say: Well the room is 2x4m, so I can hang 2m x 4m x 1,5kN/m² = 12kN in the middle of the room. Which is probably wrong.
So how do I arrive at the point loads I can apply?
