Title: Deflections of Continuous Concrete
Author(s): ACI Committee 435
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 781-787
Keywords: beams (supports); continuous beams; cracking
(fracturing); deflection; flexural strength; reinforced con-crete;
structural analysis; structural design; warpage.
Abstract:This report discusses the necessary considerations and outlines the procedure for a theoretically exact method of computing the deflection of continuous reinforced concrete beams. It describes the approximate methods currently in use and a proposed new method. Each approximate method is compared for accuracy with certain necessary characteristics and also with pertinent test data. Advantages and disadvantages are cited, and the committee’s recommendations are given.
