Experimental Study on Restrained Drying Shrinkage Cracking of Concrete Using Acoustic Emission

This paper describes how drying shrinkage cracking can occur in concrete due to volumetric changes caused by temperature and moisture gradients. The purpose of this study is to acquire fundamental data on the relationship between internal relative humidity and drying shrinkage cracking. The detection of drying shrinkage cracking was performed using the Acoustic Emission (AE) method. It was found that the AE measurement technique was successful at detecting drying shrinkage cracking.
