Precast topping reinforcement - Structural engineering ...

The hollow core manufacturers catalog states that the topping reinforcement is to comply with ACI318 as determined by the EOR. The topping is primarily for the composite slab action and a decent finished floor surface. It’s not really needed for the diaphragm and is in a non-seismic region so it could be considered plain (unreinforced) concrete.
