Description: Technical memorandum
Preface: This investigation forms a part of Civil Works Investigations Item CW 026 and was authorized by (a) letter from the Office, Chief of Engineers, dated 7 December 1950, subject, "Reinforced Concrete Beams for Tensile Crack Exposure Test, 11 and second endorsement thereto dated 17 January 1951, and (b) first endorsement dated 14 May 1951 to a letter from the Waterways Experiment Station to the Office, Chief of Engineers, dated 7 May 1951, subject, "Tensile Crack Exposure Tests for Reinforced, Concrete, Additional Tests." The test program was planned and executed by the Office, Chief of Engineers, in collaboration with the Reinforced Concrete Research Council of the Engineering Foundation. The fabrication, stressing, and installation of the test specimens were done by the Waterways Experiment Station under the supervision of Walter O. Crawley, Cecil H. Willetts, Thomas B. Kennedy, and Herbert K. Cook. This report was prepared by Thomas B. Kennedy. Reinforcing steel for this program was obtained from the Texas Steel Co., the Laclede Steel Company, Connors Steel Company, and the Joseph T.
