Nonshrink Grout Thickness

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What is a reasonable maximum thickness of nonshrink grout below a column
baseplate?   I am detailing a column base fro a steel pipe column that
supports steel roof beams in an existing building.  They are removing a
CMU bearing wall and supporting the wood framed roof with steel framing. 
The roof slopes slightly.  I was thinking of making a detail where the
column lengths are the same and the slack is taken up in the grout under
the base plate.  I would ask for steel shims to set the column in place
and then grout it.

Thanks for your help.
