I want to build a heavy duty wood deck, to place a swimming pool (70,000 lbs) on top of it. For the design of the deck, I am searching for a load table, telling me what the maximum stress in wood beams (2x4, 2x6, 2x8,...) is. I have the necessary engineering skills, but without knowing what the legal loads in my building material is, I can not really start designing...

Try Wood Handbook (free) at (chapters 6 -8?).

There are others on the internet (also free)from Georgia Pacific and a few others(seen 'em, printed 'em, but am getting old and can't find 'em).
