Slab deflection optimization

If you find that a slab either fails deflection checks (or passes with a low utilization) then changes will need to be made. There are many areas where adjustments can be made.

  • Adjust slab/panel depths?
  • Adjust reinforcement?
  • Re-consider the Event timings and loadings?
  • Adjust other settings?

Any or all changes are possible.

When changes are necessary we would recommend that it will be more efficient to work on one level at a time. The automatic re-checking of check lines will help considerably with this optimization.
