Abstract:
Slabs curl due to differences in moisture distribution that create a shrinkage profile. This induces an applied curling moment within the slab. The amount of curling for a given moisture distribution however may not be unique. Some research and field experience helps us estimate the amount of curling deflection as affected by different factors.
