Excessive deflections may occur on reinforced concrete slabs and they can occur very often. To a certain limit it is acceptable specified by applicable Codes (ACI, IS Codes and Euro Codes). The codes are specifying the amount of deflection acceptable in such cases. If the deflection limitation is exceeded, it will probably lead to several problems (like aesthetic issues, occupants that will not be comfortable to life in the building, cracks that may develop partitions, cause malfunctioning of doors and windows).
