2.6 Serviceability

The serviceability limit state designs consist of various individual designs that are specified in the following Eurocode chapters. The relevant clauses for EN 1992-1-1 are:

  • Limitation of stresses: 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-like 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.
