Title: Flexural Cracks in Reinforced Concrete Beams
Author(s): Michael Chi and Arthur F. Kirstein
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 865-878
Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:A new concept is introduced into the problem of crack formation in reinforced concrete beams subjected to pure flexme, along with simplified semkmpirical equations for the determination of the average minimum spacing and the average width of cracks in the concrete. Historical back-ground given leads to development of the analysis and the assumptions incorporated in it. To verify the analysis, crack data from 16 test specimens are presented and used to augment the data from previous investigations.
