The serviceability limit state designs consist of various individual designs. The following listing contains the relevant clauses for EN 1992-1-1:
- Stress limitation: clause 7.2
- Crack control: clause 7.3
- Deflection control: clause 7.4
In the reinforced concrete standards, the designs listed above are always described for linear, member-shaped structural elements. As mentioned in the previous part of this manual, the design situation of a surface element is transformed into the design of several linear elements in the direction of the individual reinforcement layers in the ultimate limit state. Such a transformation procedure is used in the serviceability limit state as well.
