Effect of the boundary conditions on the crack distribution in early age concrete
2014 (English)Conference paper, Meeting abstract (Refereed)
Restrained movement in early age concrete may cause cracking. The boundary conditions – restraint – influence the possible crack distribution. This study aims at highlighting the effect of such restraint on the crack distribution. This is done by using the “Cracking Model for Concrete” in ABAQUS/Explicit simulating the non-linear behaviour under and after cracking. In the study the typical case wall-on-slab was in focus using a structure previously been tested in laboratory with both fixed and free bottom slab. The result of the modelling shows fairly good agreement with the cracks observed in the tests.
