If the con- of the undesirable conditions that can result from these con- crete has a very slow relaxation rate or creep ratehowever, centrations. Although the use of such reinforcement to control cracking in a relatively thin concrete section is practical, it is not needed in massive structures such as dams due to the low drying shrinkage of these mass concrete structures.

Contrary to common belief, increasing the cement content of concrete, per se, does not necessarily cause an increase in shrinkage. Another method involves the 2244r of a vacuum or vacuum assist.

Procedures to facilitate healing should begin as soon as possible after the crack appears. As the quantity of aggregate increases, the shrinkage decreases Pickett Another is composed of organic gelling compounds of soluble 224e which increase in viscosity so that the solid particles remain in suspension.

Wet surfaces should be permitted to dry for several days to obtain the best crack filling.

It is easy to install and remove temperatures, and pressures, concrete temperatures should and can be reused many times. Thus, in general, aggregate of high modulus of elasticity and low absorption will produce a lowshrinkage concrete.

Post-cooling of concrete is accomplished by circulating cool liquids usually water through pipes embedded in the concrete. Information may also be obtained from drawings and construction and maintenance records. The The cracks range from aco few millimeters inches to a few use of the lowest practical slump adds in the control of crack- meters feet in length and are a few millimeters inches to ing.


The rate of crack width development, however, in tension members has been developed that incorporates is considerably faster under repetitive loading Bennett and both slip and bond stress Yang and Chen Then the member is treated as a reinforced concrete member and the increase in stress in the steel is calculated for the additional loading.

The insulation is easily removed from the surface when desired. These vulnerable parts require pro- should be of sufficient depth and well within the maxi- tection by insulation or protective enclosures ACI R.

Tensile strength is also important, and for this reason, crushed aggregates are apt to be superior to natural aggregates for crack prevention. In the preliminary studies of temperature and ability. Grouts which expand if unconfined after hardening can function as nonshrink grouts, as opposed to grouts that expand only in the plastic state and later suffer drying shrinkage.

Formed grooves should be constructed in both these documents are revised frequently, the reader is advised sides of parapet, retaining, and other walls at the appropriate to contact the proper sponsoring group if it is desired to refer depth and spacing. While this technique is possible, the interpretation of results is not straightforward. It is generally more convenient, however, to estimate crack widths using a clear card having lines of specified width marked on the card, as shown in Fig. It is accurate to assume that the tensile-strain capacity Mass concrete structures, normally unreinforced, can have an is inversely proportional to the modulus of elasticity of the outer layer of temperature reinforcement that requires corrosion concrete.

In most cases, and Stevens Therefore, more water and cement are needed to achieve a given slump.

The maximum stress is usually taken as the design stress which is based upon assumed concrete properties. Ponding is not a desirable method of curing in an arid climate because of the quick drying that occurs when it is discontinued. The restraint of members subjected to volume changes frequently results in cracks. Crack control is important to promote the aesthetic appearance of structures, and for many structures, adi control plays an important role in the control of corrosion by limiting the possibilities for entry of moisture and salts which, together with oxygen, can set the stage for corrosion.


Creep of concrete is measured on carefully sealed specimens stored at a constant temperature and sci to a constant stress.

Such a hypothesis is clearly indicated in Fig. The level of compressive stresses developed in the shrinkage-compensating concretes ranges from 25 to psi 0. The engineer should thoroughly evaluate all effects of the drying cycle in a PIC project and plan the drying temperatures and duration, the cooling cycle, and the monomer system to prevent the occurrence of unmended cracks. That report gives data on adiabatic temperature rise of concretes having a single cement content but having different types of portland cement.

These considerations can result in The interior and exterior concrete, particularly in larger, stresses capable of causing cracks at an early age but that thicker sections, can be subjected to changes in temperature might be sustained at greater maturity. This chapter cov- 3. This basic concept of the use of expansive cement to produce a shrinkage-compensating concrete is illustrated in Fig.

Chlorinated rubber and waxy or resinous materials are effective coatings, but there are probably many other materials which will slow the evaporation enough to be beneficial.

The study indicated that residual strain as well ment paste in compression and the interaction of cement as the change in the initial modulus of 2224r are good paste with 224 particles.
