Research Brief: Minimizing Thermal Cracks in Concrete Pavements
Author(s)Louhghalam, Arghavan; Ulm, Franz-Josef; Petersen, Thomas
This brief examines the risk of fracture of concrete pavements due to thermal cycles. CSHub researchers model the risk of fracture due to temperature changes and propose a method for estimating the risk of thermal cracking in transient-state conditions (when pavement is still undergoing a change in temperature) and steady-state conditions.
