Types of loads:
Dead loads- Self weight or individual weights of beam columns, slabs, str. steel etc.
Live Loads- Materials to be stored in the constructed str. ie., sofa, human being, table etc
Seismic load- Earthquake vibration loads
Wind load- Leeward and Windward side loads,

IS846 will give u the calaulation of wind loads, its given in the last pages of the book.

plastic load design- it will not regain the shape and will absorb the load without failure
elastic load design- it will regain the shape after the loading is removed
