Abstract: Crack free concrete is often demanded for durability reasons. Obtaining crack free concrete requires not only knowledge about the materials and the structure but also a tool that delivers this knowledge to the engineer.
In this paper the use of the program HEAT of FEMMASSE is outlined. Background information is given. An example from practice is presented to show that this program is a helpful tool for engineers. This example shows how knowledge of science and practice has been combined to obtain a crack free water retaining wall.
