Re: slab on masonry

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Probably not actually zero, although I wonder how much benefit you get from, say, an 8" thick wall with the rebar in the center?  Especially with masonry--I'd feel better about a concrete wall.

Um, zero?  Although it might be a little more if it's a thicker wall with rebar properly placed.  Depends on relative stiffnesses.

Listers,
When supporting an elevated concrete slab on masonry walls, in the out-of-plane direction, what percent do you consider the slab fixed to the wall?
