The separate experimental investigations results and the major drawbacks of existing methods of calculating the reinforced concrete elements crack resistance are considered in detail, taking into account the process of multilevel formation and crack opening. Based on the basic provisions of the deformation and strength model of concrete and reinforced concrete resistance, an engineering method for calculating the formation and disclosure of normal cracks in the reinforced concrete elements and structures at the operational stages of their deformation is proposed. It is implemented on the system of generally accepted static, geometric and physical relations of a deformed solid mechanics. The simplicity of the proposed calculation method is due to the use of the nonlinear function of the average stresses of the reinforcement bond with concrete on the sections of the reinforced concrete element between adjacent cracks. The main advantages of the developed calculation method in comparison with others are outlined.
