Control of Cracking in Concrete Structures ACI 224 R-01 Reported by ACI Committee 224

The pect ratio ratio of fiber length to fiber diameterand the vol- random shrinkage cracks deserve special comment. Upper lifts of formed concrete the specified character and degree of performance, there is a could be revibrated as late as the running vibrator will pene- likelihood that undesirable results will be obtained. When these 224t-01 location, height, and thickness of the structure, character of tions and natural cooling are ineffective in reducing crack- the aggregate, properties of the 224r01, and the external re- ing, postcooling is prescribed, especially for large concrete straints.

Curing should be promptly conducted. This can be accomplished by mechanical 6. Drying shrinkage can be defined as the time-dependent linear strain at constant temperature measured on an unloaded specimen that is allowed to dry. For example, a grid that records for the seasonal variations. Most of shrinkage occurs when water starts to evaporate from the the work conducted before was reviewed by ACI concrete.

Less mixing water reduces drying shrinkage. Loads and com- ly, lesser-quality aggregates can have a lower stiffness than binations will vary for the different structures, such as the surrounding matrix and not carry their proportionate hydrostatic pressure, gravity, ice, silt, temperature, earthquake, share of the load.

Settlement cracks occur along rigidly supported of surface moisture relative to the replenishment rate of elements, such as horizontal reinforcement, form ties, or moisture by bleeding.

Therefore, the water content and paste content of a concrete mix- ture should be kept to a minimum to minimize potential dry- ing shrinkage and the cracking tendency of the concrete. In the preliminary studies of temperature and ability.
