Jul 01, 2006  Moreover, restrained shrinkage tests reveal that cracks of SCC tend to be less wide than cracks of OC. Nevertheless, when evaporation rate is low, SCC mixtures exhibit a higher plastic shrinkage than OC mixtures, due to their lack of bleeding. Consequently, SCC could be more vulnerable to shrinkage cracking, especially during setting.

THERE’S NO REASON TO CRACK UP OVER CRACKS AND

Jul 23, 2021  The most common cracks in plastic concrete are plastic shrinkage cracks and crazing. These are caused by the surface drying out faster than the underlying concrete—when the evaporation rate on the surface, due to dry or windy conditions, is greater than the bleeding. Very shallow plastic shrinkage cracks form as parallel lines.

Mar 06, 2019  The most common cracks in slabs are random drying shrinkage cracks. After placement, as the concrete dries out, it shrinks about 0.06% but the concrete’s capacity to resist this is only about 0.015%. The cracks form because of restraint – anything that prevents the slab from moving freely, such as the subgrade, creates restraint.
