  • Assessment of cracking in concrete due to hydration heat and autogenous shrinkage

    An experimental study was conducted to simulate the generation of thermal stresses due to hydration heat and restraint by using a thermal stress measuring device (TSD). The net effects of time-dependent properties of hardening concrete can be well incorporated in TSD due to simultaneous development of temperature and corresponding stress in restrained specimen. Moreover, experiments were ...

  • A valid method for comparing rational and empirical heat stress indices

    No single heat stress index has gained universal acceptance within the past 20 years., despite extensive research. It is currently difficult to directly and quantitatively compare the many rational and empirical indices that are available, which results in confusion and a reluctance to change to a different index. A method is developed using the concept of limiting metabolic rate which allows ...
