Abstract:
Reports cracks which have developed in new buildings in which typical construction is of solid rein- forced concrete floor and roof slabs supported on exterior masonry walls and interior beams and columns. In general, the cracks occur in horizontal joints of the external wall surfaces at corners of the build- ings under concrete floor and roof slabs. The description of the phenomena is offered as a step toward solution of a general problem.
