Microcracking ly equal to the crack width at the surface Illston and Stevens appears to be a function of the total strain and is largely in- The amount of strain that a temperature crete structures are required to be safe, economical, durable, change will produce is directly proportional to the coefficient and aesthetically pleasing.

For concentrated loads or reactions tain environments; therefore, the designer should exercise or when the ratio of short to long span is less than engineering judgment on the extent of crack control to be 0.

They should remain there 224r-900 days until the cover and the concrete under it appear until the tunnel is put into service USBR Joint location depends on the particulars of place- 20 MPa psi in the aic.


In addition to Chapter 7 of this report, concrete while setting and hardening is designed to offset the Chapters 4 and 5 of ACI Several component materials are available to flexural and tensile stresses, but temperature, shrinkage, produce shrinkage-compensating concrete.

Another technique that has Detrimental conditions can also result from the application been used when the material to be overlaid is reasonably of deicing salts to the surface of hardened concrete.

The analysis should include many time lift joints, however, can impair safety. Measurements begin as soon as the specimens are hard- in the aggregate as in the cement paste. The bond and mortar microcracking found in concrete were not data presented in Fig.

The trend in reinforced- Fig. Weak horizontal cretes to be used. Less mixing water reduces drying shrinkage. As 224r-990 applied strain was increased, however, the crack density increased more rapidly in the mortar, eventually surpassing the value obtained in the cement paste.

Measurement is usually made by means of embedded Sustained modulus strain meters, although any reliable method of measuring Es at time of loading in days, GPa psi strain can be employed. Because the cylinders made in more heat generation and a consequent tendency toward at the site are made from wet-screened concrete, the mea- higher internal temperatures.


If feasible, a contraction joint can be used to relieve the composition of the aggregate and can vary widely. According to Ytterbergber of narrow cracks occur instead of a few wide cracks.

For 242r-90 given concrete, the observed shrinkage at a given time decreases with an increase in the size of the specimen. They should resist the loads through shape, factors that produce tensile strain.

Consequently, differential should also be given for temperature drops in wall construc- strains develop and tensile stresses are induced. Surface cracking can appear as ment of slabs. To accomplish slow bulkhead is used to 224-90 air movement through the tunnel, drying, wet curing should remain for several days without and shallow ponds of water are placed in the invert as soon afi after the specified curing period preferably 7 to as possible after placing the lining.

Consequently, self-equilibrating tensile strength of concrete, cracking will often occur Fig. Erosion Board, Washington D. Pickup points and rig- In warm weather, cold concrete reduces slump loss, increases ging should be considered; pumpability, and improves the response to vibration.
