RE: Regional Practices for Structural Design and Construction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't think I have ever done a concrete filled metal roof deck.  What
kind of building types are you using this for?  Just curious...

That was my experience. Others may disagree.

Actually, I would like to expand this discussion to all design and
construction practices that vary by region.  

With the advent of the IBC, does steel connection design vary as much as
it
used to across the US, i.e. design of seismic connections by the
engineer
(west coast) vs fabricator design of connections (east coast)? 

Barry - are you saying that metal roof decking alone (without concrete
topping) is not commonly used for diaphragm design in California?

I'd like to add a regional practice to the discussion.....metal decking.

Coming from California where most metal decking is filled with concrete,
I
was indeed the odd duck in wanting to do this for roof diaphragms in
Utah.
Perhaps I'm overly naive on this issue, but the partially grouted walls
outside of high seismic areas has me thinking...
