Why Hairline Cracks in Concrete | Types of Cracks in Concrete

But, sometimes cracks happen in spite of any precautions taken. In this ACI (American Concrete Institute) addresses this issue in ACI 302.1-04. "Even with the ideal floor designs and proper construction, it's unrealistic to expect crack-free and curl-free floors.

Concrete Basics in Construction from Construction

Rebar is central to reinforced concrete, so a basic understanding helps. The various sizes are important to know: a #3 bar is 3/8" in diameter, a #7 bar is 7/8" in diameter, etc. The easy rule of thumb for rebar sizes is to take the rebar size and divide by 8 for the diameter in inches. Rebar. Diameter.

When, Where, and How to Make Saw Cuts in Concrete

Saw cuts are a used to create control joints in concrete, which help control where cracking occurs due to shrinkage. The cuts should be made at a predetermined spacing and only after the concrete has obtained sufficient strength but before internal cracking begins. Therefore, the timing of saw cuts is critical.

The 28-Day Myth - National Precast Concrete Association

The American Concrete Institute recognizes 28 days or "the test age designated for determination of the specified compressive strength."5 Therefore, when a specifier calls for 5,000 psi concrete at 28 days, this tells the concrete producer to select a mix design that will attain a minimum of 5,000 psi 28 days after manufacture.

Different Grades of Concrete, Their Strength and Selection

Grade of concrete is defined as the minimum strength the concrete must posses after 28 days of construction with proper quality control. Grade of concrete is denoted by prefixing M to the desired strength in MPa. For example, for a grade of concrete with 20 MPa strength, it will be denoted by M20, where M stands for Mix.

PDF Alomaishi Creep of High Strength Concrete

The equation in section 8.5.1 of ACI 318 is identical to Eq. (1) except that the units are based on pounds rather than kips. The data used to develop this equation were based on concrete strengths ranging from 2 ksi to 7 ksi (14 MPa to 48 MPa). The data with relatively weak aggregate were omitted. The density of concrete ranged from 0.08 kip/ft3
