'n Toepaslike span / effektiewe dikte metode is voorgestel om deurbuigings van bewapende beton elemente te beheers. Die reëls is aanwendbar vir die oorspronklike skatting van die dikte van bewapende beton elemente as ook vir die kwantitatiewe berekening van die deurbuiging van die finanle ontwerp. 'n Formule en 'n grafiese benadering is voorgestel. Daar is duidelike voordele vasgestel in vergelyking met ander metodes.

A concise method suitable for direct use in the design office is presented dealing with deflection control of reinforced concrete members using span / effective depth rules. The rules will be useful for the design engineer when estimating member depth at the start of design calculations as well as for a quantitative assessment of the deflection of final design solutions. A formula and a graph approach are described. A considerable number of advantages, compared with other methods, has been attributed to the new technique.
