concrete topping slab on garage wood floor framing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
this question relates back to an earlier question from the list regarding a 
wood framed garage floor over occupied space.

what thickness of concrete is required on wood framed construction to achieve 
a 1 hour rated assembly (with gypboard to underside of framing), and where is 
this information referenced?  architectural graphic standards indicates 
1-1/2" for lightweight concrete, but I can find no other reference.  my plan 
checker says she thinks it is 3" but doesn't know where the information is 

thanks in advance
