BEAMS

AS A PRELIMINARY TO A STUDY OF THE RELATION BETWEEN BAR STRESS, CONCRETE COVER, AND CORROSION, A METHOD OF INJECTING COLORED EPOXY INTO LOADED BEAMS WAS DEVELOPED. LATER SAWING OF THE BEAM EXPOSED THE FILLED INTERNAL CRACK FOR MEASUREMENTS. CRACK WIDTH AT THE BAR WAS FOUND TO BE PRIMARILY INFLUENCED BY BAR STRESS AND TO AVERAGE FROM 0.10 TO 0.31 OF THE SURFACE WIDTH. THE CLEAR COVER OVER THE BARS ALSO INFLUENCED CRACK PROPORTIONS AND CRACK SPACING. /AUTHOR/
