Connection of attics

Cantilever slab connections serve for the minimisation of thermal bridges on fa├žade-penetrating components.
Attics can be thermally separated with joint widths of 60 mm to 120 mm and must be dimensioned as a vertical cantilever detached from the ceiling.
Dead weight and wind loads are influential factors.
As resulting forces tension forces, moments, and shear forces must be shown static. Possible interactions must be taken into account.
