The validity of the mathematical model describing the propagation of vibrations in the reinforced concrete structures (RC structures) was verified by comparing the experimental and numerical data. The proposed model allowed us to perform numerical experiments aimed at comparing vibrorecords obtained for the structure without defects and the structure with typical fracture caused by crack formation. Based on the results of comparison, an informative diagnostic parameter was proposed. This parameter makes it possible to control the nucleation and growth of cracks in a RC structure.
