Concrete Crack Chasing and Solutions

Shear and bending fractures are the most important fracture modes for unreinforced beams. Flexural rupture due to softness is generally preferred to shear rupture due to brittleness. Because in soft rupture there is a possibility of redistribution of stress and can be a warning to the user, while in sudden rupture due to lack of
