This half day course covers the calculation of deflection in slabs and beams according to Eurocode 2.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Carry out calculations of deflection
  • Assess the influence on deflection of creep, shrinkage, loss of tension stiffening and construction loading
  • Choose suitable concrete material properties for deflection calculation
  • Understand why the calculation of deflection at the design stage is not an exact science
  • Explain the importance of effective communication to avoid deflection related disputes on site


Intended for

Graduate engineers. The material is also relevant to the Chartered Membership exam, but is not essential.

Entry criteria

Prior experience of designing concrete structures is assumed.

Tutor

Robert Vollum

Robert is a Reader in Concrete Structures at Imperial College London. His research interests encompass long term deflections of reinforced concrete slabs, beam-column joints, shear in beams, punching shear, numerical modelling of reinforced concrete structures, strut and tie modelling, and control of early age thermal cracking.
