Abstract:
Demands for thinner, lighter structures, coupled with advances in material strengths, construction techniques, and structural analysis software, make serviceability an increasingly important limit state for modern concrete buildings and bridges. This session tackles concrete issues related to deflections, particularly through the lens of constructability. The session will highlight project successes and misfires and delve into reasons leading to the outcomes.
