This text brings together knowledge on early-age thermal cracking, which occurs when the restrained thermal contraction strain exceeds the tensile strain capacity of the concrete. It aims to help both the designer and contractor to understand the significance of cracking, the mechanisms and factors influencing early-age thermal cracking, and its methods of control. Thermal expansion, temperature fall from a peak during hydration of the cement and restraint factors are all discussed. The book shows how early-age thermal strains can be reduced by taking appropriate measures during the design and construction of concrete elements, and develops equations for the control of crack width.
