Early Thermal shrinkage 1

Early Thermal shrinkage

Early-age thermal cracking occurs when the tensile strain, arising from either restrained thermal contraction or a temperature differential, exceeds the tensile strain capacity of the concrete. In high strength concretes autogenous shrinkage may also contribute to early contraction. DESIGN PHILOSOPHY It is proposed to minimise the number of movement joints in the structures by designing the …
