In-Person Breakfast Meeting: Troubleshooting Concrete Cracking

Cracking is a natural, expected, and accepted behavior of concrete. However, cracks may affect the appearance, function, durability, service life, or more seriously, the structural integrity of the concrete. For these reasons, designers, concrete producers, and contractors are always trying to control or minimize the amount and severity of concrete cracking. This presentation will cover the fundamental causes of cracking, crack investigations, and recommendations for troubleshooting concrete cracks.
