Abstract:

Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 207.2R-07.

Presents a discussion of the effects of heat generation and volume change on the design and behavior of massive reinforced concrete elements and structures. Particular emphasis is placed on the effects of restraint on cracking and the effects of controlled placing temperatures, concrete strength requirements, type and fineness of cement on volume change. Formulas are presented for determining the amounts of reinforcing steel needed to control the size and spacing of cracks to specified limits under varying conditions of restraint and volume change.
