RE: ACI crack control

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm not sure what you mean "states the cracking control", but in ACI 350-01:
Section includes provisions for control of cracking due to
shrinkage and temperature for liquid-tight structures; and 
Section 10.6.4 includes provisions for flexural crack control in
liquid-tight structures. 
Also, R10.6.4 refers to crack widths that were used to derive the required
"Z-values" - but these should not be taken as exact values for actual crack
widths in the field.

	Subject: ACI crack control
	Can anybody advise on the precise ACI code that specifically
	states the cracking control, besides the usual conditions as
	shown in ACI 318-02. e.g. for liquid-containing concrete structures,
	nothing is said in ACI 350.3 nor ACI 350.01.
	Many thanks in advance.

	Raul Labbé  S.E.
