Reinforced Concrete (RC) beam deflection is one of the design requirements for reinforced concrete beams. In calculating RC beam deflection, short-term as well as long-term deflections need to be considered. The spreadsheet calculates both short-term and long-term deflections upon entering the beam geometry, concrete strength, reinforcement and loads. Deflections can be calculated in U.S. Customary units as well as SI units.
