Keywords: aggregate interlock; aggregate shape and texture; beams (supports); concretes; crack width and spacing; cracking (fracturing) cyclic loads; joints (junctions); shear stress; stiffness; stress transfer; stresses; tests
In a test program, comprising 44 speciments, the nature of shear transfer across prepared cracks by aggregate interlock mechanism was further explored.
