Deflection Control by Design

The purpose of this paper is to review the current practice related to design of concrete structures for deflection control and discuss the limitations of the current American Concrete Institute code procedures. The focus of this paper is the applicability of minimum thickness values in current design practice. Also examined is the need for increased attention to deflection control as material strengths increase, the tendency towards use of more flexible structural systems increases, and more sophisticated analytical procedures become available.
