What is the maximum deflection in a beam in bending according to AISC Steel Construction Manual 13th edition. I have the manual but cannot find where this is defined? I have heard L/360 but want to be sure.
I want to design roof rafters for a storage tank and want to know the allowable deflection in this case.
