Control of Cracking without direct calculation according to Eurocode 2

For reinforced or prestressed slabs in buildings subjected to bending without significant axial tension, specific measures to control cracking are not necessary where the overall depth does not exceed 200 mm and relative provisions have been applied. When the minimum reinforcement is provided, crack widths are unlikely to be excessive if:


Table 1: Maximum bar spacing for crack control (Eurocode 2– Table 7.3Ν)



Table 2: Maximum bar diameters φ*s for crack control (Eurocode 2– Table 7.2Ν)
