Abstract:
Haunched flat slab construction with round columns was used for a six-level parking garage built in Phoenix, Ariz. Approximately 137 x 200 ft, garage has ramps at a I2 percent grade. Traffic design, structural features, construction practices, and shrinkage cracking are discussed. Camber was introduced into slabs by jacking the forms while they held the finished but unhardened concrete.
