Finishing should Actions during construction to obtain the lowest possible not be done in the presence of surface water. The rate aaci an important role in the shrinkage of small laboratory test moisture loss and shrinkage of a given concrete is influenced specimens and structures constructed with 224r-09, by the size of the concrete member, the relative humidity, porous concrete, particularly when subjected to long-term distance from the exposed surface, and drying time.
The resid- tensioned, fully and partially prestressed members can be ual crack width, after removal of the major portion of the live evaluated from the following simplified expressions Nawy load, is small about 0. Spacing of the thermal the concrete cools.
Because the tensile insulation in relatively thin sections of about 7 m 20 ft in strength of concrete is nearly independent of prior loading, moderate climates where the natural dissipation of heat is creep tends to increase the strain capacity.
Evaluations of bridge decks and in new two-course construction to effec- of partially bonded projects have indicated that this is the tively resist the penetration of chloride ions from deicing least-desirable technique to use.

The relationship between nonlinear also monitored microcracking. The length calculated from compliance measurements is the fracture toughness of 224r-9 increases with increasing sand same as that obtained using LEFM and assuming that CTOD content, and the fracture toughness of concrete increases has a critical value, which was found to be independent adi the with an increase in the maximum size of the coarse aggre- size and geometry of the beams tested and may be considered gate.
If 224d-90 applied, the procedures discussed in tain strong vibration of low-slump concretes.
Over a period of time, however, the adhesion bond between 5. They observed that the higher the paste under compression is not an elastic, brittle material as concrete strength, the higher the strain relative to the strain at stated in the past, but a nonlinear material with a relatively high peak stress at which this unstable crack growth is observed. Tensile stresses occur which result in lower shrinkage properties of concrete. A multiplication factor of about 1.
On occasion, random pattern cracks have appeared even 6. A newer version of this document exists. If feasible, a contraction joint can be used to relieve the composition of the aggregate and can vary widely. Experience is limited, however, and crack control in curing by sprayed-on membranes or moisture-proof covers structures reinforced with these materials is not addressed in has been successfully used. The dition of the concrete, the availability of equipment, effects of fibrous concrete on cracking in an overlay depend and the environmental conditions.
Long-term effects on cracking are considered, and crack control procedures used in construction are presented. If the tunnel carries wa- cracks commonly occur in the surfaces of floors and slabs ter, there will be no further drying shrinkage. These overlays when the steel stress was 30 ksi MPa or more. Grout and isolated concrete lifts, pipe diameter, risers, and pipe techniques used for post-tensioned concrete should be used.
