Title: The intricate “art” of crack width control in concrete

Cracking in concrete has been a topic of ongoing research due to its relevance to a structure’s durability, structural capacity, resilience and aesthetic requirements. To an extent, cracking in plain and reinforced concrete can be considered inevitable with design codes and guidance documents recognising the importance of controlling crack widths. But how well do we understand and account for the complex phenomena that lead to cracking in our approaches towards crack control in reinforced concrete? Are there flaws and over simplifications in the design models proposed and can multiphysics simulations help us to identify weak points in the prevalent methodology? This talk will explore the history and advancements on crack width control in concrete with a progressive lens using also lessons learnt from real-life examples.
