The calculated load value is based on the ultimate limit state (i.e. load value including safety factor of 1.5).
The calculated deflection value is based on the serviceability limit state (i.e. load value without safety factor).
In order to calculate choose the desired parameter, fill in the necessary data and click 'Calculate'. Calculated load is a maximal value, for which the deflection value was calculated. Calculated values of height or thickness of the bearing bars must be confronted with the STACO production programme.
The calculation tool might be treated only as a help tool and no rights may be derived from its results. All technical projects of platforms and traffic arteries must be based on proper strength calculations.
