q decking question

q decking question

q decking question

I am not that familiar with poured concrete structural decking. Can anyone recommend a site or other reference material to give me structural loading information on q-decking applications. Specifically I am designing a roof to an building. the roof will have to support the load from parked and moving cars and trucks. The roof is relatively small, 17' x 19' and can be up to 8" thick. any suggestions where to start, or general references or rules of thumb?
Thanks in advance

try www.fibermesh.com

You could try the Vulcraft website. Vulcraft manufacture all types of metal decking including composite metal deck and their site has a good download center (www.vulcraft.com)

I think in this instance you may be better proceeding with a conventional 2-way reinforced concrete slab or rib-slab design.
