Title: Code Criteria For Deflection Limitation in Reinforced Concrete Structures
Author(s): B.L. Meyers and G.M. Sabnis
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1-14
Keywords: building codes; creep properties; deflection; flexural strength; loads (forces); reinforced concrete; shrinkage; span depth ratio; standards; stiffness
Abstract:Code criteria for deflection limitation in reinforced concrete structures, from a number of countries, are reviewed and the two major methods used for deflection limitation are discussed. These methods are: limiting deflections to a fraction of the span length, and limiting the span-to-depth ratio.
