Design Clauses in BS 5337 for Controlling Early Thermal and Shrinkage Cracking

Excessive cracking due to early thermal and shrinkage movement was a common defect in water retaining structures designed to CP2007: 1970 which shouldbe rectified by the new Code. The paper therefore discusses design in accordance with BS 5337: 1976 for satisfactory control of this form of cracking, and outlines the various design options which are available. B.P. Hughes
