Course programme

Designing Deflections in Concrete Slabs and Beams


Modern concrete structures can have large spans and predicting their deflections at the serviceability limit state may be complex, due to numerous time-related material and environmental factors.

Course Content:

  • Behaviour at the serviceability limit state.
  • Influence of material properties of concrete structures and construction loading on slab deflections.
  • Calculating deflections using The Concrete Centre's How to guide and The Concrete Society's TR58.
