RE: Radiused angle ledger

Try the following:


It gives the minimum bend radii possible for various sections. Admittedly it is for Australia and Australian sections but at least  gives the basic idea.

Subject: Radiused angle ledger


I've got a curved CMU wall with a tight radius (5.5 ft) that I need to provide a ledger for metal deck w/ concrete fill (on inside of curve)

The CMU wall continues up above the slab to form a parapet/guardrail (it's a landing on an exterior stairwell).

I was thinking that radius-ing an angle would be difficult (to maintain flatness) since it's not doubly symmetric, but maybe it's done all the time???

What about radius-in a MC10x8.4 with the toes going toward the center of the radius?
