RE: sloped conc. diaphragm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Consider using precast. I designed an avalanche resistant structure a while back. Precast had a lot of advantages. The sloping surface can be done with cast in place, but it presents more challenges.

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.
