Correspondence on Shrinkage and Tension Stiffening in Negative Moment Regions of Composite Beams by R.P. Johnson and R.W. Allison

Dr. L. A. Clark (M) (University of Birmingham): This paper is most welcome since, in the past, equations for predicting strains and crack widths in reinforced concrete members have been applied to composite members-sometimes with misleading results. The present paper shows how strains in composite members can be predicted accurately, and the writer looks forward to seeing the publication of the authors’ reference 10, which will be concerned with crack width prediction in composite members.
