  • The restraint of freshly cast concrete is ever present through factors such as reinforcing steel and non-uniform concrete depth. The influence of these restraints on the early age cracking of concrete such as plastic settlement cracking (PSeC) and plastic shrinkage cracking (PShC) is of great importance, since these cracks are both unsightly and can cause severe durability and maintenance issues early in the life of a concrete structure. PSeC is caused by the differential vertical settlement of… CONTINUE READING
