precomposite deflection limits

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone know of any clearly documented, recommended or required
(unlikely) guidelines to limiting the precomposite deflection of steel
beams in composite floor systems? I've always tried to limit the total
deflection to a reasonable number (1" or so, depending on the span) and
the initial deflection was never a serious issue.
