Title: Prediction of Long-Term Deflections
of Flat Plates and Slabs
Author(s): B. Vijaya Rangan
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 223-226
Keywords: beams (supports): cracking (fracturing): creep properties;deflection: flat concrete plates; flat concrete slabs;floors: modulus of elasticity: reinforced concrete;shrinkage: structural analysis: two-way slabs.
Abstract:An approximate method for the calculation of long-term deflections of flat plates and flat slabs is described. The method is applied to compute deflections of three existing floors for which details are available. The agreement between measured and calculated deflections is good.
