It is emphasised that the graphs are not design, charts but aids to enable designers to quickly identify. appropriate floor systems to carry the applied loading. for the desired span and thus provide approximate,dimensions for the preliminary design.

In most cases the soffit finish is produced off formwork. even for precast elements If the soffit is visible in the. completed building the effect of the formwork and,the pattern it makes on the surface needs to be. Floor level, considered While the appearance of the floor structure. when it is to be exposed to view is often decided by. Varies with services, the architect the structural designer must be aware of. FLOOR ZONE, aesthetics and participate in achieving the desired. appearance for the completed building If the soffit is. to receive a plaster coating then consideration needs Services. to be given to providing a suitable texture to the soffit. It is extremely difficult if not impossible to get plaster. coatings to adhere to surfaces of high strength, concrete that have a high density eg surfaces of F I G U R E 1 Typical floor zone. members cast against steel formwork,3 2 Floor zone thickness. 3 3 Services, The thickness of the floor zone is greater than the.

Vertical services are usually accommodated by by bands or beams around the perimeter of the. providing penetrations through the floor structure penetration which in turn carry the loads back to the. These are often in riser ducts in one location within columns or adjacent beams. Vertical services such as downpipes tend to be,located adjacent to columns because columns. provide lateral support and protection However from. a structural point of view locating services adjacent to. the columns is not ideal At this location the shear. and moment are usually a maximum and there is, therefore a concentration of reinforcing steel and or. prestressing tendons to provide the necessary, flexural and shear strength Furthermore this may not. be a desirable location for a rainwater downpipe from. a flat roof as the column is likely to be a high point of. a roof the roof will tend to sag between columns, This may not be true for fully prestressed structures. as the floor system will tend to hog between columns. however the comment regarding high shear and,moment still applies. F I G U R E 4 Services in a column,Vertical penetrations through floors over say. 200 mm by 200 mm or where many penetrations are, anticipated are best detailed on the design drawings. Consideration should be given to providing more, penetrations or larger penetrations than those initially. required so as to provide space for later expansion. of services Generally these penetrations will require. to be designed to achieve the fire resistance required. for the floor system or be enclosed in a fire rated duct. Beams and slabs can be designed to accommodate, fairly large horizontal penetrations reasonably close to. columns but these need to be designed and detailed. on the drawings and their detailing not left to the. service contractor The possible rearrangement of the. reinforcement layout to suit the service contractor. should be avoided at all costs Consideration should. be given to reducing the depth of the beam or band. locally by using a haunch notch etc to avoid,penetrations Upstand beams can sometimes be. incorporated around service ducts to allow services to. exit below the floors easily Small horizontal,penetrations up to say 50 100 mm in diameter can. usually be accommodated in the middle third of a,beam depth However this restriction may make it. difficult to accommodate pipes needing falls,particularly where there are long horizontal runs.

CHAPTER 4 Structural Considerations,4 STRUCTURAL CONSIDERATIONS 4 2 Strength. The design of long span concrete floors has to conform. 4 1 General, to the requirements of the Building Code of Australia.

For two way floor systems such as flat plates or flat. slabs the deflection of the column strip may need to. be limited to say 25 30 mm so that the deflection in. the centre of the slab between the columns in the, middle strip is not too high Designers will need to. consider if the column strip deflection an average of. the column strip and the middle strip deflections or. the maximum deflection in the centre of the slab, between the columns is the controlling deflection It is. strongly recommended that the expected order of, deflections be discussed with the architect the client. and the user or owner of the building so that they. understand what orders of long term deflections may. be expected and how this may affect the operation of. the building Excessive long term deflections can lead. to unserviceable floors and in the extreme the need. for demolition, Reinforced floors can be precambered to counteract.
