Experimental Study on Concrete’s Dry-Shrinkage Stress in Construction Stage


Article Preview

At present, many experts and scholars use theory way to search the concrete’s dry shrinking stress. According to action and in-action principle, the writer designed one experiment model indoor to test the concrete’s stress variety in construction stage by the stress and strain apparatus. In this experiment, successfully collected the data of the stress variety with the time in 0~24 hours of concrete plank-placing in unit width. Through analysis the data, discover the regulation that dry shrinking cause crack in concrete’s construction stage.
