where:
a ep is the mean compressive stress, measured positive, in

obtained by averaging it over the concrete section taking
account of the reinforcement. The value of a cp need not be
calculated at a distance less than 0,5dcot8 from the edge
of the support.
Note that the values of Vl and a ew should not be such as
to give rise to a value of VRd,max greater than 200(b w)2 at
sections more than d from the edge of a support. For this
purpose the value of bw does not need to be reduced for
ducts.

compression chords are able to carry the whole o

XO, XCI 0,3 0,2
XC2, XC3, XC4 0,3 0,2 b
XD1, XD2, XD3, XSl, 0,2 and decompressionc
XS2, XS3
For XO, XCI classes, crack width has no influence on durability and this limit is set to produce acceptable appearance.
In the absence specific requirements for appearance this limit may be relaxed.
b For these exposure classes, in addition, decompression should be checked under the quasi-permanent combination of loads.
0,2 mm applies to parts of the member that do not have to be checked for decompression.

In the absence of specific requirements (e.g. water-tightness), it may be assumed that limiting the
calculated crack widths to the values of Wmax given in Table NAA, under the quasi-permanent combination
of loads, will generally be satisfactory for reinforced concrete members in buildings with respect to
appearance and durability.
The durability of prestressed members may be more critically affected by cracking. In the absence of more
detailed requirements, it may be assumed that limiting the calculated crack widths to the values of W max
given in BS EN 1992-1-1 :2004, Table 7 .1N, under the frequent combination of loads, will generally be
satisfactory for prestressed concrete members. The decompression limit requires that all parts of the
bonded tendons or duct lie at least 25 mm within concrete in compression.
15) In BS EN 1992-1-1:2004, Expression (7.11) the cover, C should be taken as Cnoll1 . The use of the
resulting value of sr,max in BS EN 1992-1-1:2004, Expression (7.8) will then provide an estimation of
the crack width at the surface of the concrete. In some situations, such as structures cast against the
ground, Cnom will be significantly greater than the cover required for durability. Where there are no
appearance requirements it is reasonable to determine the crack width at the cover required for
durability and verify that it does not exceed the relevant maximum crack width.
This may be done by multiplying the crack width determined at the surface by + /).crleJ/c nom to
give the crack width at the cover required for durability, and verifying that it is not greater than
W lllax ' This approach assumes the crack width varies linearly with zero width at the face of the bar. (5J

NOTE 1 The values given have been chosen to be generally conservative and calculation may frequently show that thinner members
are possible.
NOTE 2 For two-way spanning slabs, the check should be carried out on the basis of the shorter span. For flat slabs the longer span
should be taken.
NOTE 3 The limits given for flat slabs correspond to a less severe limitation than a mid-span deflection of span/250 relative to the
columns. Experience has shown this to be satisfactory.
(5) NOTE 4 The values of h in the table might not be appropriate when the form-work is struck at an early or when the
construction loads exceed the design load. In these cases, the deflections may need to be calculated using advice in specialist
literature, e.g. the Concrete Society's report on def1ecions in concrete slabs and beams and an article for the Magazine of
Concrete Research entitled Are existing span to depth rules conservative for flat slabs?, both of which are referenced in NA.4.
NOTE When the span/depth ratio obtained from NA.3 or Expressions (7.16a) or (7.16b) is adjusted using either (310/0",) or
vk)(A",pp,)" such adjustment should be limited to a maximum value of 1.5. cr" should be calculated under characteristic

that in the event of an accident the building will not suffer collapse to an extent disproportionate to
the cause. Provisions of EN 1992-1-1 are not considered sufficient in some respects and details and
approaches for satisfying this requirement are included in PD 6687 as non-contradictory
