Title: Simplified Deflection Computations
Author(s): R.S. Fling
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 205-224
Keywords: computation; cracking (fracturing); deflection; flexural strength; loads (forces); reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; standards; stiffness; structural steels
Abstract:This paper examines the factors that complicate deflection computations. It suggests a method for making reliable estimates of the deflection of reinforced concrete memebers with almost as little computational effort as required for structural steel members.
