RE: Deck Support

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It depends on what your roof structure is.  I presume that you're using bar 
joists.  If so, you just continue the top chord as an outrigger over the 
last support and size the member accordingly.  Vulcraft has some typical 
details in their selection manual.  If it's a steel beam structure it's 
more difficult, but you use the same general approach.

 << File: ATT00022.htm >> I am designing an industrial building.   On the 
edge of the building there
is 2 feet from the column centerline to the outside face of brick.  My
problem is supporting the deck.  The deck, 2" composite with 5 1/2" slab)
will cantilever in the direction of its span with no problem but support in
the other direction is a problem.  Thanks in advance for any ideas.
