Crack propagation in the horizontal direction is a representation of a diagonal crack in the structures.
A diagonal crack is defined as a major inclined crack, extending from the level of the flexural reinforcement towards the application point of the load, and the load at the growth of this first inclined crack is termed as the diagonal tension-cracking load ([P.
