Elevated Structural Floor Slab Jointing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Greetings and Salutations:

I run into this situation about once every blue moon?..and the clock is ticking?..

I have an elevated structural one-way floor slab supported by concrete beams. The slab has been designed as a continuous members and currently has bottom steel at mid-span and top steel over the supports. The slab dimensions are about 66? x 71?.

Two Questions?.

Do I place construction joints in the slab systems?

If so, where do I put the joints?

Thanks in advance!
