Re: Slab on grade (on asphalt)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Reza,

Your use of the terms "heavy-load storage area" and "only 2" under the slab"
suggests that some parts of it will work just fine and some won't work very well
at all.  Sounds like you need a detailed geotechnical evaluation before you can
make any suitable decisions.

Regards,

H. Daryl Richardson
