This ratio is called the factor of safety, and its value depends upon whether the load is a live — a constantly moving — load, or a dead (ie, a stationary) load. The factor of safety for a dead load is usually taken at 5, which means that the safe load upon a beam must not exceed one-fifth of the breaking load ; the factor of safety for a live load is often taken...
