Title: 435R-95: Control of Deflection in Concrete Structures (Reapproved 2000)
Author(s): ACI Committee 435
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 77
This report presents a consolidated treatment of initial and time-dependent deflection of reinforced and prestressed concrete elements such as simple and continuous beams and one-way and two-way slab systems. It presents the state of the art in practice on deflection as well as analytical methods for computerise in deflection evaluation. The introductory chapter and four main chapters are relatively independent in content. One or two detailed computational examples for evaluation the deflection of beams and two-way action slabs and plates are given at the end of Chapters 2, 3 and 4. These computations are in accordance with the current ACI or PCI accepter methods of design for deflection.
