What is it about?

Cracking is important for reinforced concrete members. We emphasize on cracking for concrete columns and concrete structural walls. Also, we note the fact that large tensile strains are applied like in earthquake actions.

Why is it important?

What is unique about this publication is that there is an emphasis on cracking appearing for large tensile strains like it takes place in the case of medium and severe seismic actions.


I hope this article helps people on their research about cracking characteristics of reinforced concrete structural members, especially those subjected to earthquake actions.
