Concrete Cracking

This presentation will cover various aspects related to concrete cracking. This topic is both a contentious and unfortunately, a common issue nationally. Often, the key to addressing cracking issues is learning how to properly determine the cause of the crack so it can be mitigated and prevented in future projects. Topics covered in this presentation will include:

  • Causes and control of cracking

  • Evaluation methods

  • Mitigation

  • Crack repair
