Secondary steel beam deflection limit exceeded.

This message is created by specifying the element name and floor on which it is located at the beginning of the report.

For example,

SB001 BASE STORY Beam deflection limit exceeded.

Deflection check for steel elements is carried out under gravity loads such as dead loads, live loads, and snow loads, depending on user control by CYTHYE 2016 (GKT & YDKT), AISC 360-16 (ASD & LRFD) or EN 1993-1-1 codes.


Possible Solutions:

  • Steel element cross-section can be enlarged.

  • It can be determined by checking the steel element deflection limit according to the given steel design codes.

  • The rigidity of the secondary beam section can be increased by defining composite beam on the secondary beams. In this way, a composite beam design is made for the secondary beams. This title can be examined for the warning that composite beam strength is not provided.

  • Secondary beam spacing can be reduced.
