Numerical modeling of time to corrosion induced cover cracking in reinforced concrete using soft-computing based methods
Reinforced concrete (RC) is one of the most commonly used composite materials in construction industry. Corrosion of reinforcing steel embedded in concrete is a crucial issue leading deterioration of RC structure. In this ...
Explicit formulation of drying and autogenous shrinkage of concretes with binary and ternary blends of silica fume and fly ash
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2015-09-30)
Shrinkage is generally considered as an important durability property of hardened concrete. During the drying process, free and absorbed water is lost from the concrete. When the drying shrinkage is restrained, cracks can ...
