What Can I Do For You?
the control of cracking in reinforced and prestressed concrete is an essential factor in ensuring the reliability and durability of structures, together with many other important properties including water-tightness
cracks and crack control in concrete structures fritz leonhardt professor emeritus dr.-ing. dr.-ing. h.c. mull. consulting engineer stuttgart, frg the material presented in this paper is based on more than 30 years of re-search, observations and experience concerning causes, control, and conse-quences of cracking in concrete struc-tures.
the first is to avoid cracking, by limiting the stresses induced in the concrete by restricting the amount of movement and/or the level of restraint. the second is to assume that cracking will occur and to control crack widths by providing sufficient, correctly detailed reinforcement.

consider using synthetic fibers to help control plastic shrinkage cracks. various types of concrete crack repair methodologies: stitching; muting and sealing; resin injection; dry packing; polymer impregnation; vacuum impregnation; autogenously healing; flexible sealing; drilling and plugging; bandaging; to summarize, always prevention is better than cure. prevention of concrete
the results show that the focus of crack control on a ring-shaped concrete frame structure is the circumferential tensile stress of beams and slabs as well as the stress in columns. the value of

224 r 90 - control of cracking in concrete structures 1. aci 224r-90 control of cracking in concrete structures reported by aci committee 224 the principal causes of cracking in concrete and recom- mended crack control procedures are presented. the cur- rent state of knowledge in microcracking and fracture me- chanics is discussed.
there are number of factors that controls concrete permeability like water-cement ratio, use of admixtures, curing, air voids due to deficient compaction, micro-cracks due to loading, cyclic exposure to thermal variations, and age of concrete.
pendent of crack width.” aci 224r-01, “control of cracking in concrete structures,” indicates 0.016 in. as a reasonable crack width for reinforced concrete under service loads for a dry air exposure. the document also notes that a portion of the cracks in the structure will exceed these values. with time, a significant portion can
hot weather is another big reason for plastic shrinkage cracks. control joints can be incorporated into the slab to prevent shrinkage cracking. the joints will open up as the concrete slab gets smaller. 2. expansion concrete cracks. just like a balloon, heat causes concrete to expand.
cracking should be kept within reasonable bounds…….maximum crack width should not exceed 0.3 mm.” based on the above, 0.4 mm appears to be a reasonable width limit for an aesthetically acceptable crack, regardless of whether the crack is in a concrete structure or pavement.

control of cracking. reinforced concrete will generally crack. it is only when cracks form that the reinforcement starts to carry any appreciable load; prior to that the concrete is effectively behaving as unreinforced. when considering the effects of movement on a structure…
the notes on cracks and crack control in concrete structures will look at how concrete cracking can be controlled by decisions made at the design stage and during the practical application of the material. cracking can occur as a result of design, supply, construction and project management processes.
as a result of this, the thermal cracking of concrete develops with time as the stresses are developed usually. craking of concrete due to the external seasonal temperature variations can be minimized if it was considered at the design phase. depending on the stress developed due to the applied loadings, reinforcement is calculated for a section.
cracking occurs in concrete when the restrained strain exceeds the tensile strain capacity of the concrete. in critical elements like water retaining structures, crack control is verified by carrying out direct calculation of the crack width.
crack control of r.c. slabs using simplified rules (eurocode 2) according to clause 7.3.1, the general considerations in the control of cracking in a building are as follows; (1)p cracking shall be limited to an extent that will not impair the proper functioning or durability of the structure or cause its appearance to be unacceptable.
table 4.1 in aci 224r-90, 'control of cracking in concrete structures,' lists tolerable crack widths for reinforced concrete under various exposure conditions. section 4.4 of aci 224r-90 indicates that a portion of the cracks in a structure should be expected to exceed the values in table 4.1 by a significant amount, even when other report recommendations for limiting crack width are followed
crack control of concrete using reinforcement to achieve water-tightness concrete is like a cranky toddler. it needs a lot of love and care, and yet if there is one tiny bit it is unhappy about, it releases its resentment by cracking. there is a plethora of reasons of why concrete may crack. too wet, too dry, too hot, too cold, too much rebar, too little rebar.
february 18, 2017. 2. 8. this book presents new guidelines for the control of cracking in massive reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. understanding this behavior during construction allows engineers to ensure properties such as durability, reliability, and water- and air-tightness throughout a structure’s lifetime.
measures to prevent plastic shrinkage in the concrete structure are as follow : by providing control joints prevent shrinkage cracking. by use of fog nozzles to saturate the air above the surface; plan pouring of concrete in morning or evening; by use of plastic sheeting to cover the surface between finishing operations.

this online learning module is a recording of the institute’s seminar on cracks and crack control in concrete structures. it looks at how concrete cracking can be controlled by decisions made at the design stage and during the practical application of the material. the module will also consider where the risk lies in cracking, who is responsible, and the impact it can have on the overall performance of the
