This book presents new guidelines for the control of cracking in massive reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Understanding this behavior during construction allows engineers to ensure properties such as durability, reliability, and water- and air-tightness throughout a structure’s lifetime. Based on the findings of the French national CEOS.fr project, the authors extend existing engineering standards and codes to advance the measurement and prediction of cracking patterns. Various behaviors of concrete under load are explored within the chapters of the book. These include cracking of ties, beams and in walls, and the simulation and evaluation of cracking, shrinkage and creep. The authors propose new engineering rules for crack width and space assessment of cracking patterns, and provide recommendations for measurement devices and protocols. Intended as a reference for design and civil engineers working on construction projects, as well as to aid further work in the research community, applied examples are provided at the end of each chapter in the form of expanded measurement methods, calculations and commentary on models.

This report contains technical and scientific information presented at the 4th workshop "Control of Cracking and Durability of Reinforced Concrete Structures", held on 20-21 March 2014 at the Joint Research Centre, Ispra, Italy. Co-sponsored by the Joint Research Centre, this event was the fourth of a series of "Control of Cracking" workshops (ConCrack) organised by the French research programme CEOS.fr. This programme was the framework set up by French professionals to make a decisive step in the predictive capacity of models to describe the state of cracking of buildings and civil engineering works, with the final objective of developing tools for designers and support the evolution of standards. The main purpose of the workshop was to improve engineering practices related to the cracking process in special massive concrete structures, thus enhancing the prediction of crack evolution during the service life of special structures. The international scientific and engineering community acknowledged the significance of the research findings and the practical results presented at the workshop enabling the exchange of expert know-how and codification. There was a strong motivation among participants to pursue further research work on the topic of cracking and durability of massive concrete structures, addressing aspects of cost, safety and sustainability.

Concrete structures must be designed both to be safe against failure and to perform satisfactorily in use. This book is written for practising engineers, students and designers and concentrates on design methods for checking the main serviceability requirements of control of deflections and cracking in reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.

Serviceability failures of concrete structures involving excessive cracking or deflection are relatively common, even in structures that comply with code requirements. This is often as a result of a failure to adequately account for the time-dependent deformations of concrete in the design of the structure. The serviceability provisions embodied in codes of practice are relatively crude and, in some situations, unreliable and do not adequately model the in-service behaviour of structures. In particular, they fail to adequately account for the effects of creep and shrinkage of the concrete. Design for serviceability is complicated by the non-linear and inelastic behaviour of concrete at service loads. Providing detailed information, this book helps engineers to rationally predict the time-varying deformation of concrete structures under typical in-service conditions. It gives analytical methods to help anticipate time-dependent cracking, the gradual change in tension stiffening with time, creep induced deformations and the load independent strains caused by shrinkage and temperature changes. The calculation procedures are illustrated with many worked examples. A vital guide for practising engineers and advanced students of structural engineering on the design of concrete structures for serviceability and provides a penetrating insight into the time-dependent behaviour of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.
