slabs on metal deck

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
how are other strucural consultants addressing the slab on metal deck
placement?  the question is how do the structural documents address it.

1.  do you say the thickness of concrete shown is a minimum and
variations in thickness can only be in +
2.  do you give bulkhead information for pours in particullarly at a
girder.  do you stop short of the studs for the first pour to avoid
engaging it in composite action.
3.  at the girder bulkhead do you give shear transfer criteria such as
dowels.

the question assumes you have a cambered design.

the owner expects that the design engineer has some input on a method of
placement that is doable, creating a level, flat floor within the
structural design intent and fireproofing requirements for the floor.
