Pouring concrete on a sloped surface

Pouring concrete on a sloped surface

I have an existing conveyor gallery structure at an 18 degree slope.  I need to replace the floor with a corrugated, 1 1/2" composite deck with light weight concrete (f'c = 5000psi).  The corrugations of the deck are perpendicular to the axis of the conveyor.

Does anyone know if a contractor could pour this type of concrete floor at such a steep angle?  Any references would be appreciated.


RE: Pouring concrete on a sloped surface

we have done up to 45 degrees, it takes talent and a very dry slump, like 2 inch slump, cannot vibrate. its mainly dry packing. 18 would be easy
