Abstract:

Reliability indices of reinforced concrete flange beams with respect to limit state of deflection designed as per the provisions of IS 456:2000 are found to be nonuniform. Through this paper, an attempt has been made to propose an empirical expression for reliability index of a flanged RC beam in limit state of deflection. This equation will be useful in deciding depth of member for a given span, load with target reliability index in limit state of deflection and also to obtain an estimate of reliability index of the designed RC beam.
