Yes,  You want balance-windows (see below).

C-x 1   C-x 3   C-x 3   C-x +

Will give you three equal size windows in the frame.

allan

C-x + runs the command balance-windows
  which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `window.el'.
It is bound to C-x +.
(balance-windows &optional WINDOW-OR-FRAME)

Make windows the same heights or widths in window split subtrees.

When called non-interactively WINDOW-OR-FRAME may be either a
window or a frame.  It then balances the windows on the implied
frame.  If the parameter is a window only the corresponding window
subtree is balanced.
