According to Note 5 of Table NA.5 the NA to BS EN
1992-1-1
[1a]
the modification factor for service stress
used with the l/d method of checking the SLS state of
deformation (designated factor F3 in TCC
publications) may be determined as either
- 310/os using characteristic load combinations
to determine the service stress, os
or
- (500/fyk)(As,prov /As,req)
In either case the modification factor is restricted to a
maximum of 1.50. In the UK
fyk = 500 MPa.
Assuming os is simply proportional to the ultimate
stress, ou, produces values of 310/os = 1.00 +/- 5%
and so for hand calculations is not as attractive as
using As,prov /As,req.
The use of F3 = As,prov /As,req ≤ 1.5 is therefore
advocated in checking deformation using the l/d
method by hand.
