Methods for Crack Prevention of Large Volume Concrete Foundation of High-Rise Building
Crack prevention of high-rise building foundation is an interesting and difficult issue to engineers. Reasons for the crack are analyzed first. Then, based on project cases, crack control methods of large volume concrete foundation are studied in terms of active part and passive part. Active part includes optimizing design of concrete, optimizing foundation design and improving confining condition. Passive part includes reducing temperature difference and increasing the fracture strength of concrete. Finally, optimum foundation design is emphasized for crack control of large volume concrete foundation.
