Serviceability Behaviour of Reinforced Concrete Half Joints

A method of calculating service load stresses, strains and crack widths in reinforced concrete half joints is proposed, and compared with the results of tests on 46 half joints. The proposed method of calculation gave reasonable agreement with the test data, and also with the limited amount of independent data that are available. It was found that the most significant factor in controlling service load stresses and crack widths is the provision of inclined reinforcement at a half joint. L.A. Clark and P. Thorogood
