Slab deflection example (Eurocode)

In the following exercise slab deflections will be checked for the tutorial model shown below.

It is a simple multi-bay flat slab structure on an 8m square grid of columns. The slabs have been sized based on deemed-to-satisfy rules taken from “Economic Concrete Frame Elements to Eurocode 2 - The Concrete Society”.


  • 8m grid
  • 285 thick C30/37 slab
  • 400 square columns


  • Finishes - 1.5kN/m2
  • Imposed - 5.0kN/m2
  • Perimeter Cladding - 10.0kN/m

Deemed to satisfy checks provide one method of checking, however the main focus of the exercise will be to investigate rigorous slab deflection checks.
