On Early Age Crack Formation in FRC Slabs

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    The problem of early age crack formation in FRC slabs due to restrained temperature and shrinkage deformations, is given an analytical treatment. A model taking into account the ageing properties of the tensile softening curve and the continued development in the temperature and shrinkage deformations after crack initiation, is presented. Based on this model a design strategy for FRC slabs is outlined.
