Abstract:
Presents an extension to concrete of recent fracture arrest concepts in plastics and metals and in riveted stiffen-ers. At a reinforcement spacing less than some critical value, all cracks, it would appear, could be contained between adjacent reinforcing elements. Also presents a qualitative description of the mechanism involved and reports on a series of tests on beams with closely spaced wire reinforcement.
