Abstract:
Presents an approximate procedure to estimate the deflections of flat plates, flat slabs, and two-way slabs in the partially cracked load ranges. The method is compatible with the equivalent frame method of the ACI Building Code (ACI 318-71) and is an extension of the work related to elastic deflections of slab systems. Available experimental data in the literature is compared with the estimates provided by the procedure and found to be satisfactory.
