Simplified Live-Load Distribution-Factor Equations

The objective of this project is to develop new recommended LRFD live-load distribution-factor design equations for shear and moment that are simpler to apply and have a wider range of applicability than those in the current LRFD. The need for refined methods of analysis should be minimized.
