View NCCI for Section 7: Serviceability limit states

Taken from BS EN 1993-1-1: 2005

Practical deflection limits for single storey buildings  (SN035)
No specific deflection limits are set in Eurocode 1993-1-1. According to EN 1993-1-1, §7.2 and EN 1990 – Annex A1.4, deflection limits should be specified for each project and agreed with the client. The National Annex to EN 1993-1-1 may specify limits for application in individual countries. Where limits are specified they have to be satisfied. Where limits are not specified, the following might be helpful when deciding relevant deflection limits.

Vertical and horizontal deflection limits for multi-storey buildings  (SN034)
No specific deflection limits are set in EN 1993-1-1. Instead it states in §7.2 that the serviceability criteria, including deflection limits, should be specified and agreed with the client for each project. Furthermore, the verification should be based on criteria concerning deformations that affect appearance, comfort of users, functioning of the structure or that cause damage to finishes or non-structural members. In some countries, the National Annex to EN 1993-1-1 specifies the limits. Where limits are specified they have to be observed.
