Subject: Raised concrete floor slab


A residential client would like a concrete floor at the second story.  I've done this with periodic supporting walls below, but this basement area is open with a 29 foot short direction span.  With TJIs at 16" oc and a 1-1/8" plywood deck, what would be an appropriate light weight concrete fill depth and reinforcement?  Any pointers on this subject?  Thanks.
