Thermal load produced part-through cracks in cement mortar layer on foamed concrete system floors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A study was performed on the development of a major crack in a top cement mortar layer of Korean floor system under continuous thermal loading. The cement mortar plate of a foamed concrete floor system under thermal loading showed horizontal expansion which was associated with bending cracks. A governing set of equations of the initiation and spacing of cracks in the top cement mortar layer of the floor system under thermal loading was formulated.
