Abstract:
Twenty-three one-way slabs reinforced with either deformed wire, deformed bar, or deformed welded wire fabric were tested by third-point loading. The crack controlling abilities of the three types of reinforcements were compared with one another. The results were also compared to those of other researchers. This study indicated that deformed wires, deformed bars, and deformed welded wire fabric control crack spacings and crack widths equally well when placed similarly.
