Plastic shrinkage cracking: research in Scandinavia
2014 (English)In: Nordic Concrete Research, ISSN 0800-6377, Vol. 50, 351-354 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
As plastic shrinkage cracking still causes considerable repair costs annually, an understanding of the phenomenon is essential to prevent these damages in the future. In the paper, the status of present technology to avoid cracking is briefly reported through referring to research conducted in Scandinavia. In addition, on-going activities at LTU are described and future plan is demonstrated. Thus, experiments are performed on concrete slabs cast in rectangular moulds and cured at some variations of environmental conditions. The results will be used to find critical evaporation rate at very early age.
