Title: Stress Distribution in Reinforced Concrete Members With Tension Cracks
Author(s): Bengt B. Broms
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1095-1108
Keywords: beam, cracking, crack pattern, crack spacing, flexural crack reinforced concrete, research, stress redistribution
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.
