Code limits on deflections On 17 November, Dr J. B. Bellamy questioned the basis for the recommended limits on deflections as set out in Codes, wondering whether perhaps the actual levels might not appear somewhat arbitrary. We have a response from Roger Mead of Brentwood in Essex: Although I support Dr Bellamy’s questioning of the rationale of deflection limits, I would raise issue with his interpretation of the limits in clause 14.7 of BS 5268.
