Abstract

This research has aimed to understand the behaviors of the crack of the RC deck slab caused by a negative bending in the middle supports of continuous composite gider bridges.For the determination of stress and strains in cracked regions,the effect of tension stiffening of concrete on stresses in reinforcement has to be taken into account.It was confirmed from the fatigue tests that the crack width approaches to a certain value with the increase of the number of repeated cycles.
