Waffle Pod Concrete Slab Strength
« on: February 24, 2010, 08:27:51 AM »
Hi all. Hoping you can help me with my question:

Im busy building a house and my builder has already finished with the slab (foundation). He has used a waffle pod raft slab. The slab is 85 mm thick on the top and the ribs are 1m spaced in a grid-like fashion. I want to build a 5000 Kg (5 tonne) aquarium in my living room. It will sit on a concrete stand (not a stand with legs, therefore the weight is evenly distributed). Will the slab hold this weight. The foot-print for this tank will be 3.6m long by 1.2 m wide (4.32 SQM area).

Thanks in advance!!!
