Title: Application of CRC JointCast in Joint Details of Precast Elements
Author(s): Morten Hernes, Morten Christensen
Appears on pages(s): 1-14
Keywords: CRC, PCC-elements, joint details, shear force, tests
Abstract:Compact Reinforced Composite (CRC) is a relatively new material that combines a high strength, densely packed cement matrix with high fibre content. The current project investigates the shear capacity concerning application of CRC in the vertical joints between precast concrete elements. For the purpose CRC JointCast, a special type of CRC, are utilized. The paper presents and discusses the results of 30 full-scale tests with 10 different joint details. The tests showed that easy-to-construct joints with significantly higher load bearing capacities were achieved by the application of CRC in the joints, especially with rough surface construction joints.
