224R-01: Control of Cracking in Concrete Structures (Reapproved 2008)

242r other cases, an earlier than normal floating may destroy the growing tension by reworking the surface mortar and prevent plastic cracking that would otherwise occur. Restraint of flatwork results from anchoring slab ly, some concretes of highly quartzitic gravels have a low reinforcements in perimeter concrete footings.

For example, the least-expensive aggregate can have undesirable thermal properties and require expen- 7. Also, it was observed that the use of some of these pozzolans increased drying shrinkage although they had little effect on 242r water content of the concrete. This is particularly true in smaller Section 7. Using this procedure, bleed water from the lower portions of the wall will tend to equalize the water content within the wall.

For specific data on appropriate 2244r factors, the reader should refer to the U.

For information on other methods of predicting temperatures in mass concrete, see the report ACI To accomplish slow bulkhead is used to prevent 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 wetting after the specified curing period preferably 7 to as possible after placing the lining.

For example, cracks that are acceptable for buildings may not axi acceptable in water-retaining structures. It limits the maximum design crack width to 0. For such concrete, the tensile strain which the concrete can withstand is approximately equal to the tensile strength acu by the modulus of elasticity of the concrete. If the new concrete is given a few days to grad- cement is used because of its high rate of heat generation and acj dry or cool, creep can reduce the possibility of cracking strength and stiffness development.


The specimens showing in. Stronger rock Table 7. The balance of this chapter describes some of the more recent studies of crack mechanisms in concrete and gives a somewhat different picture from that presented in the previous committee report. When these precau- location, height, and thickness of the structure, character of tions and natural cooling are ineffective in reducing crack- the aggregate, properties of the concrete, and the external re- ing, postcooling is prescribed, especially cai large concrete straints.

ACI R Causes, Evaluation, and Repair of Cracks in

The initial work is referenced in this chapter. Such a hypothesis is clearly indicated in Fig. Larger aggregate permits the use of less water and cement per 224t yard, resulting in savings in both the amount xci cement and the amount of temperature control necessary for required crack resistance.

This research different picture of the microscopic behavior of concrete has provided an improved understanding of the fracture process using the scanning electron microscope SEM.

The concern is that after cracks have caused concern from the standpoint of aes- cracking, steel fibers will oxidize and provide no long-term thetics, but they have not been a cause of overlay failure. Autogenous shrinkage occurs without the loss of moisture from the bulk concrete.

The measurement is usually made by means of embedded strain meters, although any reliable method of measuring strain can be employed. The effect of the gain that could delay form stripping ACI R. As the moisture is will be discussedthe contractor cannot be expected to use removed, the surface concrete contracts, resulting in tensile the best procedures unless these procedures are included in stresses in the weak, stiffening, plastic concrete that cause the contract documents.


However, hardened horizontal lift joints may impair the safety.

The system of contraction joints and grooves previously discussed for control of shrinkage cracking will serve the same purpose against substantial later drops in surface temperature. Significant advances in use of 242r propagation techniques for flaw detection in concrete by the impact-echo technique have been made Sansalone and Carino; Sansalone Roll-out application is particularly applicable for water flow.

Damage in hardened cement paste from freezing is caused by the movement of water to freezing sites and, for water in larger voids, by hydraulic pressure generated by the growth of ice crystals Powers The capsules are mounted on injection ports.

Another important factor which influences the water requirement of a concrete, and thus its shrinkage, is the temperature of the fresh concrete.

This effect silicate hydrate and crystalline-hydration products and the results from the greater surface area to volume ratio in drying of the pores by removing absorbed water.

Their results on neat cement pastes showed a wide distribution of shrinkage values especially for the Type I cements. In normal weight concrete, aggregate particles act as stress-raisers, increasing the initial stiffness and decreasing the strength of the paste.

A lower water content can be achieved by using a well-graded aggregate, stiffer consistency, and lower initial temperature of the concrete.
