CRACKING IN CONCRETE - ATTRIBUTED TO DEFECTS IN DESIGN
As part of a project aimed at reducing cracking in concrete, a number of cases of cracking have been examined where the defects could be attributed mainly to inadequacies of design or lack of liaison between the design and construction. Fourteen case studies are presented describing some twenty cracking incidents.
