Standard Method of Test for Evaluating Stress Development and Cracking Potential due to Restrained Volume Change Using a Dual Ring Test
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
This test method covers the evaluation of stress development and cracking potential in concrete when volume changes caused by shrinkage and temperature changes are restrained. The procedure is comparative for the degree of restraint of the ring and is not intended to determine the time of initial cracking of a concrete cast in any specific type of structure.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
