What are the Loading requirements for expansion joint?

When determining loading requirements, consider what type of traffic will take place.
Will it be pedestrian, equipment or heavy duty such as vehicular? Where is it located, in a heavily used hospital corridor that has gurney and x-ray machine traffic with high point loads, a storage room with filing cabinets or a simple office? Will the loads applied be uniform, rolling or concentrated under the footprint of wheels?

 
A classic example is joints installed in a space with a tall ceiling — how will maintenance staff change the light bulbs? More than likely a heavy scissor lift will be brought in. Or take a hotel, for instance … big difference in load between a single rolling carry-on bag and the baggage of a pop star diva.
