You might be looking at something like corrugated paper box forms that were placed on flat board forms and shores to construct a joist and slab structural system. At one time they also used clay tiles in a similar manner.
In years past these products were marketed for a concrete structural joist and slab application. Look at the waffle slab system at: http://www.surevoid.com/surevoid_web/setup/enter_tech.html Today their market is in the area of slabs on grade with expansive soils.
Came across a formed, framed slab system supported by bar joisted spaced at about 2'-0" o.c. that I have not seen before.
Visually, the slab soffit looks very similar to the bottom of a wet cardboard box with a slight shadowing of 2" x 2" ± mesh behind. Slab soffit is hard to the touch. Slab thickness measures 4" thick, concrete.
Anybody seen this system before or am I just looking at a non-descript, removable forming system that just happened to be separated from the concrete via a layer of cardboard?
