CONTROL OF FLEXURAL CRACKING IN REINFORCED CONCRETE

CONTROL OF FLEXURAL CRACKING IN REINFORCED CONCRETE. In the last 30 years the permissible steel stresses in reinforced concrete codes have generally more than doubled and, since crack widths are proportional to steel stress, it is now necessary to know with much greater certainty what other factors govern cracking and to be able to predict and control the crack widths.

(Revised) [Edits Highlighted] Comparison of Flexural ...

When a reinforced concrete beam is subjected to bending and the tensile strength of the concrete is exceeded, cracking in the beam occurs. When cracks form in the beam, the reinforcement-concrete bond is interrupted, and the beam experiences a loss in its stiffness. Shortly after a crack is formed, internal cracks start to appear where the ...
