CRACK-ARREST TECHNIQUES IN REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS--1. LABORATORY TESTS
Tests were conducted to develop improved methods of arresting or preventing undesired flexural cracking within the tensile zones of conventionally reinforced concrete beams. Specimens representing several potential crack-arrest techniques including fiber-reinforced concrete, concrete with wire mesh, and epoxy-resin concrete were tested under either short- or long-term static loading.
