Please consider the following issue The October 1992 issue of Steel Tips notes the four available methods to control dl deflection while still designing relatively flat floors. They are 1) Varying thickness slab 2) Overdesign Beam/Girder 3) Camber Beam/Girder 4) Shore Beams. With a strong preference toward a combination of methods 1,2 for short spans and 1,2, and 3 for long spans, are there any guidelines & procedures that may help the designer as he/she seeks to juggle various variables such as additional concrete wt., economy, tolerances, and constructability. If anyone would like to share their approach/guidelines or can direct me to some insightful articles on this issue, I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance for you time.
