Shrinkage Cracking of High-Strength Concrete

Sep 01, 1996  No systematic study has been performed to assess the restrained shrinkage cracking behavior of high-strength concrete. This paper presents research on the restrained shrinkage cracking on several strength levels of concrete. Higher strength levels were obtained by partial substitution of cement with silica fume and by reducing the water content.

Pozzolanic materials, along with high-range water-reducing admixtures, have improved strength and durability of concrete construction. Since compressive strength is the most commonly used parameter to describe the quality of concrete in practice, high-strength concrete, often called high-performance concrete, has been used in many structures that are sensitive to shrinkage cracking.
