Title: 207.2R-07: Report on Thermal and Volume Change Effects on Cracking of Mass Concrete
Author(s): ACI Committee 207
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 32
Keywords: adiabatic; cement; concrete cracking; creep; drying shrinkage; foundation; heat of hydration; mass concrete; modulus of elasticity; placing; portland cement; pozzolan; restraint; stress; temperature; tensile strength; thermal expansion; volume change.
Abstract:This report presents a discussion of the effects of heat generation and volume change on the design and behavior of mass concrete elements and structures. Emphasis is placed on the effects of restraint on cracking and the effects of controlled placing temperatures, concrete strength requirements, and material properties on volume change.
