EVALUATION OF THERMAL CRACK OCCURRENCE IN MASSIVE
CONCRETE STRUCTURES
(Reprint from Transaction of JSCE,
Katsuhiko KIMURA
Vol.6, No.378,
1987)
Sadamu ONO
SYNOPSIS
Authors propose a probabilistic approach for the evaluation of thermal crack
occurrences, which introduces thermal crack index, random variable defined in
terms of the ratio of the concrete tensile strength to the thermally induced
tensile stresses due to external restraints.
Furthermore,
this report discusses some factors affecting the thermal crack
occurrence probability. It becomes clean that the degree of external restraint,
tensile strength and calculation methods of thermal crack index are the most
contributing factors.
Keywords: mass concrete, thermal crack, external restraint, thermal crack index.
