How can you Avoid Cracks in Concrete?

I will tell you how cracks appear and what is the best solution for that.cracks in concrete is the biggest headache for a civil engineer .concrete is made up up of mix of cement,sand and aggregates and water.Both mix proportions and water cement ratio plays very important role in strength of concrete. So i will briefly explain you.

What is Concrete :

Concrete is a building material which made from mixture of cement , sand ,crush or gravel and water. and we poured this mixture in the form work which can give us the different shapes of element like stone which is too mush strong.

Why Concrete Cracks :

1: Excess of water in concrete

2: Improper Compaction of concrete

3: Rapid drying of concrete

4: Temperature Variation

cracks in concrete

1: Excess of water in concrete

Concrete does not require much water to get maximum strength. we required to limit water in concrete to achieve the maximum strength of concrete. when we increase the water in concrete so it can lose the strength, so, therefore, concrete can crack. water is just reducing in concrete to make workability of concrete. so increasing of water can reduce the strength of concrete.

2: Improper Compaction of concrete

before placing concrete we have to proper compact the soil. and after that when we placed concrete so concrete should be compacted properly . when the concrete is not compacted so after that concrete gets to start to crack after some time of placing of concrete. Because when we don’t compact the concrete so its also reduce the strength.

3: Rapid drying of concrete

when concrete rapid drying so its also danger for concrete Because the rapid drying of concrete is the possibility of cracking. Because there are chemical reaction in concrete its why that concrete change from liquid or plastic to solid form so its required the water. So the hydration process starting in the concrete due to cement presence for weeks after pouring concrete.

4: Temperature Variation

Cracks in concrete also depend on the temperature Because the temperature is high at noon time and at afternoon time the temperature is reducing. Due to this expansion concrete gets started cracking.
