RE: Opinions Please: Composite Beam/Deck Slab

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I agree with the guy that said see ACI 318 6.3. I would think that if it
took all of the concrete out over the beam that you could check that
location not considering it a composite section [if you had enough studs
between break-max M].  We had a problem on a good sized building where the
plumbing and conduit were placed parallel to beams [if I remember right] and
the engineer checked the composite sections with the slab on one side and
increased the shear studs for full composite action or something like that.

Conduit has been laid on the deck.  Concrete has not yet been placed, but is
scheduled to be placed tomorrow.  Are there conditions in which conduit cast
horizontally in the plane of the slab is acceptable?
