Designing with Lightweight Concrete By William H. Wolfe E utilizing lightweight concrete and steel composite decking. This type of construction represents the ma -
Q.: We have installed a metal deck for a roof system on which the engineer has specified a lightweight concrete composite system. We have installed a vented metal decking, but the engineer has requested that solid metal decking be used. With lightweight concrete should the deck be vented or unvented
Structural lightweight concrete has been used for bridge decks, piers and beams, slabs and wall elements in steel and concrete frame buildings, parking structures, tilt-up walls,
Similar to composite deck, the determining factors for selecting the proper non-composite deck is the depth of the slab, the weight of the concrete normal weight or lightweight and the support spacing.
Eco-friendly Composite Balcony Deck Material-Composite balcony deck tiles have been designed with these waterproof surfaces in mind. Lightweight concrete decks
Our recommendations when structural lightweight concrete decks are going to be installed, is to either install a ballasted roofing assembly or to install a vapor barrier directly over the structural lightweight deck and then mechanically fasten at least one layer of roof insulation to the deck.
NyloSheet Composite Sheets, Lightweight Boat Panels - NyloBoard. NyloBoard technology is also available in NyloDeck, NyloDeck Composite decking brings the concept of a worry-free deck to life.
Structural Concrete Composite Deck A supported steel panel deck system filled with normal weight or structural lightweight concrete. The steel deck panels are embossed in a manner which when filled with concrete, allows the elements of the construction to respond to load as a single unit.
Design with Lightweight Concrete. Despite the moisture issues, lightweight concrete provides a number of benefits. Lightweight concrete composite slabs are inherently more efficient than normal-weight composite slabs with nearly identical structural characteristics and design strengths.
More than 30 years of experience in designing and installing some of the finest patio covers along the Wasatch front.
A Kansas DOT research project used three types of lightweight aggregate to develop lightweight concrete mixtures for a bridge deck and for prestressed bridge girders. Two of the lightweight aggregates were expanded shale obtained locally from the Buildex Company. One deposit was located in Marquette
floor deck catalog - ASC Steel Deck light weight, makes it the clear building material of choice . From the standard 1½ to 3 roof and composite floor deck, to concrete form deck, to long spanning.

Structural light-weight concrete has been used for bridge decks, piers and beams, slabs and wall elements in concrete and steel buildings, parking structures, tilt-up walls, topping slabs and composite slabs on metal decking.
The choice to go normalweight or lightweight often has to do with firerating. For instance, a 2 hour fire rating would require 4.5" NW or 3.25" LW over metal deck.
Lightweight concrete is typically applied as composite slabs over vented metal decks that meet the requirements of ASTM A653 and are of the proper type and gauge to withstand the structural live and dead loads for the facility.
