Abstract:
A brief review of past research concerning crack control is presented and a recent investigation of similitude of top surface T-beam cracking under negative moment is described in detail. Similitude of cracking is evaluated in relation to the results of tests of quarter, half, and full-scale specimens. The reliability of expressions for computation of crack width is discussed.
