Fwd: Construction Tolerances

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am interested in the opinions of others regarding the following:

1. What would you (as an engineer, not homeowner) consider as an
acceptable settlement for wood framed residential slab on grade

I am well aware of the many factors which one needs to account for in
response to this question, here is what prompted my post...

I have had a rule of thumb bounced off me by numerous design
professionals over the years of 1/4" in 20', but... no one seems to know
where this came from.

2. Does ACI or any other source give placement tolerances for this type
of construction?
