Concrete deck to icf wall connection??

Concrete deck to icf wall connection??

Concrete deck to icf wall connection??

Looking at the pdf i have enclosed you can see that yes we are attempting something a little unorthodox.You will step up to the outside of this home. The detail shows the second floor observation deck (on the right) and the icf wall + interior concrete slab (on the left). i am looking for a answer about flashing. we are of course going to waterproof on top of the concrete but i am of the understanding that although the deck pan is not water proof it is in fact the last line of defense. The exterior deck is above the main living are of the home..Its so important to get this right!! let me know if any one can help i have plenty of pics!

Why not raise your cold joint by 2" to serve as a water intrusion barrier?

RE: Concrete deck to icf wall connection??

even if we did get a 2 inch curb there doesn't there still need to be flashing on top of the deck pan? i wanted to run the flashing over the deck and just on the inside of the foam block. Even if we were able to get a curb formed up there i kinda feel as though the concrete is going to crack right there at the metal deck as it goes into the the icf wall.. I will add another photo to show how we were going to use the blocks as forms and obtain curb all while still shooting for 1 pour..  

RE: Concrete deck to icf wall connection??

here the card board is kinda where i was thinking the flashing would go? but only if necessary. I just really think that at the metal deck is where its going to crack for sure. the cold joint i hope to bond with some type of primmer or epoxy    before we pour that next block.

White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
Modern cars, trucks, and other vehicles feature an ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features, placing a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.

White Paper - Modeling and Optimizing Wire Harness Costs for Variation Complexity
This paper will focus on the quantification of the complexity related costs in harness variations in order to model them, allowing automated algorithms to optimize for these costs. A number of real world examples will be provided as well. Since no two businesses are alike, it is the aim of this paper to provide the foundational knowledge and methodology so the reader can assess their own business to model how variation complexity costs affect their business.
