Slab Deflection Check Catalogue

The Slab Deflection Check Catalogue is used to define the deflection checks that are applied to check lines.


On the Slab Deflection tab, click Deflection Checks.


Each deflection check has a unique name and can either be defined as a total or instantaneous check for a specific event, or a differential check between load events. A deflection limit is set and you can specify if the check is to be applied to each new check line as it is defined.
