Title: ACI 350 Shrinkage and Temperature Reinforcement

Author(s): John J. Roller

Publication: Concrete International

Volume: 43

Issue: 4

Appears on pages(s): 56-59

Keywords: restraint, wall, crack, leakage

Abstract:
Concrete cracking presents a significant obstacle to achieving a liquid-tight environmental engineering concrete structure. The minimum shrinkage and temperature (S&T) reinforcement requirements cited in ACI 350-20 should prove to be beneficial with respect to limiting crack widths and reducing the likelihood of leakage. However, in some instances, simply increasing the amount of S&T reinforcement alone may not be enough.
