THE REMAINDER OF THE PAPERS CONCERN THE PREVENTION AND CONTROL OF CRACKING IN REINFORCED CONCRETE, PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENT, SLABS REINFORCED WITH WELDED WIRE FABRIC, WELDED FABRIC REINFORCED WITH CENTRALLY LOADED TWO-WAY CONCRETE SLABS, THE CONTROL OF TEMPERATURE CRACKING IN CONCRETE, AND PREVENTION AND CONTROL OF CRACKING BY USE OF SHORT RANDOM FIBERS. /AUTHOR/
