I am designing a one-way concrete slab for a loading dock with a substructure consisting of timber piles and steel I beams. I have situations where two concrete slabs abut one another and will be situated on top of a single I beam. How much of the edge of the concrete slab must be seated on top of the beam? Is there a standard for this ( if so please let me know the ACI code or wherever I can find this information)? Is this accounted for when shear calculations are made? If you need any clarification please let me know. Thanks. |
