concrete topping on plywood floor sheathing

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

I’m looking for design information for concrete topping over plywood floor sheathing, but haven’t found anything.  Typically, I haven’t needed to consider any shear capacity from the topping, but I have a project that I am not getting enough capacity from the plywood and thought I’d explore the shear capacity of the topping.  Can this be done?  Anybody know what computer program to use?  (Just kidding… I mean do you know of any references?)  And how do I get the shear load into / out of the concrete topping?  Thanks!
