Title: An Approach to the Control of Cracking in Reinforced Concrete
Author(s): Paul H. Kaar
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 141-158
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.
