## CRACK WIDTH CALCULATIONS - FLEXURE -

INPUT
fcu= 35 N/mm2
fy= 500 N/mm2
Area of reinforcement " As " = 2093 mm2
b= 1000 mm
h= 250 mm
d= 200 mm
Minimum cover to tension reinforcement " CO " = 40 mm
Maxmum bar spacing " S " = 150 mm
Bar dia " DIA " = 20 mm
" acr " =(((S/2)^2+(CO+DIA/2)^2)^(1/2)-DIA/2) as default or enter other value = 80.14 mm
"acr " is distance from the point considered to the surface of the nearest longitudinal bar
Applied service moment " Ms "= 69.0 KNm

CALCULATIONS
moduli of elasticity of concrete " Ec" = (1/2)*(20+0.2*fcu) = 13.5 KN/mm2
moduli of elasticity of steel " Es " = 200.0 KN/mm2
Modular ratio " a " = (Es/Ec) = 14.81
" r " = As/bd = 0.010
depth to neutral axis, "x" = (-a.r +((a.r)2 + 2.a.r)0.5.d = 85 mm

## " Z " = d-(x/3) = 172

Reinforcement stress " fs " = Ms/(As*Z) = 192 N/mm2
Concrete stress " fc " = (fs*As)/(0.5*b*x) = 9.50 N/mm2
Strain at soffit of concrete beam/slab " e1 " = (fs/Es)*(h-x)/(d-x) = 0.001375
Strain due to stiffening effect of concrete between cracks " e2 " =
e 2 = b.(h-x)2/(3.Es.As.(d-x)) for crack widths of 0.2 mm Used
e 2 = 1.5.b.(h-x)2/(3.Es.As.(d-x)) for crack widths of 0.1 mm n/a
e 2 = 0.000189
Average strain for calculation of crack width " e m "= e 1-e 2 = 0.001186

## Calculated crack width, " w " = 3.acr.em/(1+2.(acr-c)/(h-x))

CALCULATED CRACK WIDTH, 'w' = 0.19 mm
