Title: Stress Distribution in Reinforced Concrete Members With Tension Cracks

Publication: Journal Proceedings

Volume: 62

Abstract:
The axial stress distribution parallel with and perpendic-ular to the main reinforcement was investigated for tension, compression, and flexural members with tension cracks. The measured surface strain distribution is compared with the calculated distribution assuming that concrete behaves as an ideal elastic material.
