Analysis of Cracks on the Containment of Loop Nuclear Power Stations for 60 Days


Article Preview

The relation of tensile strength & temperature stress and concrete fissure was researched firstly , then it showed the causes of late cracks on concrete by theoretical calculation, the result provided a simple theoretical calculation method to avoid concrete fissure. The construction methods to control the fissure was proposed: early strengthening cooling, managing maximum temperature of concrete through lately heat preservation, and overtime to preserving concrete moisture for controlling the late strain on mass concrete. This research has a great significance for controlling the fissure.
