RE: sloped conc. diaphragm

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

I’ve seen composite slab specified on top of sloped bar joists.  I assume it was assembled on the ground and lifted with a crane.

Subject: sloped conc. diaphragm




Has any one had the occasion callout a sloped concrete (roof) diaphragm. I realize pouring concrete on a slope is less than ideal. I am designing a structure to withstand impact from an avalanche and want to use as much conc. as possible. Any input is appreciated.
