Abstract:
From the results of experimental studies reported in Parts 1 and 2 of this paper, an expression is derived for the calculation of the load at which diagonal tension cracks form. Special attention was given to the effect of flexural stresses on the cracking load. This involved the application of superimposed bending moments, which were varied independently of the shear loads. The results indicate that the total bending moment at the critical section does not always contribute onal tension crack towards the formation of the main diag-
