Early-Age Concrete Cover Crack and Its Effects on Concrete Cover

Abstract:

Article Preview

The influence of early-age crack on concrete cover was studied in this paper. Cracks in concrete increase the permeability of concrete, the section where cracking occurs should be treated as getting thinner. The formation and propagation mechanism of the early-age cover crack, and cover crack depth were two main topics, which were discussed mainly based on the dual boundary element method. At last, the ultimate analytical method was used to determine the minimum thickness of concrete cover.
