Abstract
The use of high strength materials allows flexural members to resist the design loads or to cover long spans with a reduced depth. However, the strict cross section dimensions and reinforcement amount required in ULS are often insufficient to satisfy the serviceability limit states. Due to the complexity associated to a rigorous computation of deflections and cracks width in cracked RC members along their service life, an effective way to ensure the satisfaction of the SLS is to limit the slende...
