Comprehensive Slab Deflection Calculations - Part 2


Slab Deflection Analysis

This is the second of a two part series of webinars looking at the approach to rigorous slab deflection calculations now available in the 2018 release of Tekla Structural Designer.

Date: Thursday 7th June
Time: 13:00 - 13:45
Presenter: Kenny Arnott

To register for this webinar please complete the form.

In this webinar Kenny Arnott will look at the slab deflection analysis workflow and explain the practical method of slab deflection checking including how to set user limits and check lines. The perspective taken on accuracy and the provision of an allowance for shrinkage. Calculation sensitivities and the studies done to create a credible range of values for all of the input parameters create a rigorous approach.

Slab deflection is a complex subject and this series of two webinars aims to discuss much of the detail that lies behind the calculations and demonstrate how this has been automated in Tekla Structural Designer whilst retaining transparency to dig into the detail when required.

Kenny Arnott
Kenny worked for various UK consultancies for 15 years before moving into software development in 1998.  Kenny’s focus has been the development of concrete frame modelling and design software for international markets. This has involved development of a unique approach to the automatic creation and management of multiple robust analysis models to feed the design process. Currently Kenny is representing the UK in the Eurocode development task group working on the analysis chapter in Eurocode 2.
