light gage framing supporting precast planks

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone have any information regarding the use of light gage steel
framing to support a precast plank floor system?  The building is
essentially a two story, residential structure.  Specifically,
1.	The top track must be capable of spanning between the studs at 16"
or 24", so generally some type of hollow structural section will be
required.  How is that anchored to the light gage members to insure proper
support?
2.	Any special considerations for lateral design?

Any assistance would be appreciated.
