Sample text

In this connection, wall panels are connected continuously by means of continuous reinforcement. Reirrforcement is mechanically anchored to the center onethird of the panel. The outer one-third of the top chord of reinforcement is unbended by encasement in cardboard or plastic sleeves. A recessed pocket is provided to allow weldment of an angle to reinforcement in adjacent wall panels, thus forming the continuous chord. This detail is commonly used with wood roof systems. Advmrtagex Fabrication and erection are simple.

Dkadvantages: Fabrication of the composite ledger requires additional effort. Welding in the up-hand position may be required. Consolidation of concrete near embedment plate may be difficult. Advantages Fabrication and erection are simple. Steel embedment allows large construction tolerances. Disadvantages: Bearing-type bolted connection requires tight tolerances. Consolidation of concrete around embedment may be difficult. Exposed steel may require fireproofing.
