Tag: cracking processes in concrete Introduction Dimensional stability and cracking processes in concrete

To calculate the long-term deformation and deflection of structural concrete members for their design life, the relations between stress, strain, time and temperature are required. In common with other engineering materials, concrete deforms almost elastically when a load is first applied, but under sustained load, the deformation increases with time at a gradually reducing rate under normal environmental conditions.
