  • Calculating weight load with pyramid stacked barrels?

    Trying to figure out how high I can pyramid stack barrels without exceeding weight limit of my floor. Can anyone help me calculate this? Thanks in advance.

    It all depends on if you are going to put the first layer on wood slats or if you are just going to go barrel to floor. If it is barrel to floor, the weight is distributed over a much smaller surface area. Bigger surface area, more weight you can stack. Find a civil engineer who likes beer. They could probably do the math on the back of a napkin for you. You will need to know the type of floor reinforcement and concrete it is made of to get really accurate numbers.
