Grouting and Continuity
Bearing on top
Standard units can be provided for class 1 and 2A buildings with a nominal bearing of 75mm.
Continuity over steelwork
Where the nominal bearing is less than 75mm the same detail as used for masonry walls less than 190mm is required.
Continuity with concrete
Should continuity be required then the same detail as for masonry walls less than 190mm can be used. Note that the cores on opposing slabs need to line up to facilitate this detail.
To comply with disproportionate collapse requirement open cores can be provided to allow the slabs to be tied to shear studs. This requires close cooperation to ensure that the setting out of the cores and shear studs align.
