## How to Calculate Beam Deflections Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | May 21, 2019 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. It includes the design of continuous beams based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. Beam deflections are sometimes overlooked during the design process, affecting the serviceability of the structure. The calculation of deflections involves the consideration of the cracked properties of the section, and the influence of the reinforcing steel. The design process may become time-consuming, since also the long-term deflection effects should be accounted for. This document is a design overview of the deflections calculation of a typical continuous [...]
