Concentrated Loads on Metal Deck Slabs

Design Guide for Concentrated Loads on Metal Deck Slabs SCNZ - 11:2006

Bulk retail projects require robust floor systems capable of sustaining high floor loading including concentrated loads from racking systems.
Design guidance has been prepared to assist structural engineers design metal deck slabs for this and other types of applications where concentrated loading is present.
In addition, design software, SteelDeck 1.0 has been developed based on the methodology discussed in this guide.
