Restraint-induced Crack Formation and Crack Widths in Thick Walls

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/Bericht/KonferenzbandBeitrag in einem Konferenzband

Abstract

The present paper presents a method for the determination of the crack width of the primary crack in thick concrete members with conventional reinforcement near the surface. In contrast to the common theory for crack width calculation on basis of the successive cracking of a reinforced concrete tie, this approach is based on the deformation compatibility and distinguishes between primary cracks and secondary cracks for adequate consideration of the finding that the force in the reinforcement decreases from primary crack to first secondary crack to second secondary crack and so on.
Contrarily to the common case, in which the designer aims at the determination of required reinforcement, the present paper applies the theory for the determination of the crack width of the primary crack in order to enable the assessment of existing structures or the analysis of experiments.
