The paper describes the problem of the reliability analysis for individual reinforced concrete (RC) beams by the rebar strength criterion in cross section with a normal crack. It is proposed to evaluate the stress in the rebar by measurements of the crack width at the level of the rebar using the functional dependence of the crack width and the strain (deformation) in the reinforcement. It is also proposed to replace the modulus of elasticity of steel reinforcement on the secant modulus of elasticity, taking into account the increased reinforcement strain in cross section with crack. The work considers two options of the crack width in beam: less and greater than the ultimate crack width. The reliability analysis of RC beams by the rebar strength is based on the possibility theory and fuzzy set theory by the reason of small statistical data from measurements on existing individual RC beams. The use of offered reliability analysis methods will allow preventing the failures of reinforced concrete beams and in some cases to obtain economic benefit from the possibility of further operation of RC beams with cracks, even with a crack width more than ultimate value.
