Numerical analyses of crack spacing due to shrinkage in reinforced concrete slabs
Chen, G. & Baker, G. (2003) Numerical analyses of crack spacing due to shrinkage in reinforced concrete slabs. In Proceedings of the VII International Conference on Computational Plasticity (On CD-Rom), Barcelona.
Shrinkage cracking is commonly observed in concrete flat structures such as highway pavements, slabs, and bridge decks. Crack spacing due to shrinkage has received considerable attention for many years [1-3]. However, some aspects concerning the mechanism of crack spacing still remain un-clear. Though it is well known that the interval of the cracks generally falls with a range, no satisfactory explanation has been put forward as to why the minimum spacing exists.
