Fracture of Concrete

Definition: (1) a crack or break in concrete or masonry; (2) the configuration of a broken surface; (3) the action of cracking or breaking.- ACI Concrete Terminology


Fracture results from a number of sources - applied loading such as in the flexing of a beam and that due to punching on a slab, material shrinkage during curing of the concrete, and stress concentration related to structural geometry as in shear keys such as those in precast concrete bridge segments and from the reinforcing bar.
