Details 224r the types and correct usage of shrinkage compensating cements are given in ACI Cracking in mass concrete can result from a greater temperature on the interior than on the exterior. Precast panels made of low- progresses upward. It may be required to repeat this process several times until the crack is sealed. Crack-control recommen- The term can be assumed equal to 1.

Nonuniform self- basalts can be classified as higher-modulus aggregates, equilibrating internal stresses develop. In an alkaline solution, such as exists in portland cement mixtures, the aluminum reacts to form aluminum oxide and hydrogen. The main problem is choosing the point flexural loading. The work of ACI is conducted by individual ACI members and through volunteer committees composed of both members and non-members. These items are not eligible for return. The stressstrain curve for the model without cracking differs very little from that of models that have a normal, or cai normal, amount of microcracking.

Their results on neat cement 22r4 showed a wide distribution of shrinkage values especially for the Type I cements. Information presented in this chapter concerns only the subjects of cracking of hardened concrete due to drying shrinkage; factors influencing shrinkage; control of cracking; and the use of expansive cements to minimize cracking.


This chapter is concerned primarily with cracks caused by flexural and tensile stresses, but temperature, shrinkage, shear and torsion may also lead to cracking.

Caution should be employed to avoid cutting existing reinforcement during the coring process. Settlement cracks are most apparent in the upper part of wall and column placements where revibration can be readily used. Atimtay, Ergin, cai Ferguson, Phil M.

Most equations predict the probable maximum crack width, which usually means that about 90 percent of the crack widths in the member are below the calculated value. More crete can withstand varies greatly with the composition of data on the thermal expansion of concrete can sci found in the concrete and the strain rate.

Contraction joints in walls are made, for example, by fastening to the forms wood or rubber strips which leave narrow vertical grooves in the concrete on the inside and outside of the wall. On irregular, spalled, or potholed surfaces a thin leveling and debonding layer of sand or asphalt is desirable. These This report presents the principal causes of cracking and a 224f microcracks have a surface density that is two to detailed discussion of crack-control procedures.

The magnitude of the tensile stresses induced by volume change is influenced by a combination of factors, including the amount and rate of shrinkage, the degree of restraint, the modulus of elasticity, and the amount of creep. The higher water demand of FRC tends to Finishing and texturing should be done rapidly behind the cause shrinkage cracks. The results large concrete structures, such as dams, where the heteroge- indicate, however, that both mortar and concrete display less neities and the fracture process zone are small compared notch sensitivity than hardened cement paste.


This combination of shrinkage and restraint develops tensile stresses.

Suitable monomers have varying degrees of volatility, toxicity, and flammability, and they do not mix with water. Because corrosion products occupy a greater volume than the original metal, corrosion can lead to delamination and cracking of the concrete. In ordinary concrete work, the winter protection required for the development of adequate strength will prevent the most critical effects of cooling.

If the dam is very high, the design stresses will be high and more cement must be used to provide the stipulated factor of safety.

From these considerations, it is apparent that the degree of crack control necessary for the safe elimination of joints may vary from nothing at all, for a dam near the equator with favorable aggregates, to very costly measures, in a location ac temperature variations are great and where the only economical aggregates have high elastic wci and high thermal expansion. The actions that tend to make a mixture tions.

224e of the reason, as the fiber spacing increases, the number of small cracks decreases, but the number and width of larger cracks increase. If the fiber spacing aco relatively large [more than about 5 mm 0.

The effective fracture toughness of mortar increased with increasing sand content, and the fracture toughness of concrete increased with an increase in the maximum size of coarse aggregate. Concrete may be damaged by freezing of water in the paste, in the aggregate, or in both Powers
