Abstract:

The purpose of this work was to investigate the crack resistance of prestressed beams made from three types of concrete mixtures with varying reinforcement prestressing and eccentricity. A mathematical scheme was used in analyzing the experimental values obtained for the moment of crack formation in beams in the least number of experimental samples and in analyzing quantative estimates of the effect of the addition of polymers on the size of the cracks.
