Abstract: This report contains technical and scientific information presented at the 4th workshop “Control of Cracking and Durability of Reinforced Concrete Structures”, held on 20 21 March 2014 at the Joint Research Centre, Ispra, Italy. Co-sponsored by the Joint Research Centre, this event was the fourth of a series of “Control of Cracking” workshops (ConCrack) organised by the French research programme CEOS.fr. This programme was the framework set up by French professionals to make a decisive step in the predictive capacity of models to describe the state of cracking of buildings and civil engineering works, with the final objective of developing tools for designers and support the evolution of standards. The main purpose of the workshop was to improve engineering practices related to the cracking process in special massive concrete structures, thus enhancing the prediction of crack evolution during the service life of special structures. The international scientific and engineering community acknowledged the significance of the research findings and the practical results presented at the workshop enabling the exchange of expert know-how and codification. There was a strong motivation among participants to pursue further research work on the topic of cracking and durability of massive concrete structures, addressing aspects of cost, safety and sustainability.
