Crack Width Calculation Spreadsheet


Concrete is weak in tension and hence cracks when subjected to flexure, as flexure results in tensile forces in the bottom fibres (assuming loads are applied on top-when load is reversed, the tension will be at top) and also compression in top fibres, above NA. 
Hence we check for crack widths, for durability as well as in cases where excessive crack widths are not permitted, e.g. in water tanks.
