I want to cantilever a 2" corrugated 16 gauge steel deck with a total of 4" light load concrete 5' past an on grade footing. The deck will be mechanically connected with 3/4" anchor bolts every 2'. The total length of each sheet of corrugated 16 gauge steel is 25' there are three (3) on grade footing with the middle footing having number 4 rebar sticking up 3' to be bent down onto the corrugated steel. My question is what size mesh should I use and should I tie number 4 rebar to the number 4 sticking up and tie the mesh (size?) to everything and then pour the concrete. Will this be strong enough without supporting the cantilever section.? The footing specs 8" above earth 12" wide 30" deep soil rock/clay concrete 6bag 3/8 gravel number 4 every 12" with 4 number 4 running horizontally.
