Abstract: The drying of concrete induces surface microcracking due to hydric gradients, and internal
microcracking due to drying shrinkage incompatibilities between cement paste and
aggregates. The difficulty of separating each phenomena on concrete cracking makes it hard
to quantify aggregates effects with classical experiments. An ongoing parametrical
experimental study aims at quantifying the impact of drying and of inclusions by using
morphologically controlled materials. In these materials, the aggregates size and volume
fraction is controlled. The samples are then submitted to drying and their mechanical and
transport properties are regularly characterized. The first results indicate noticeable impacts of
both parameters. The study is to be enhanced of several results: different formulations and
tests to assess the evolution of mechanical and transport properties at several ages are
currently undertaken, and comparisons are made with results from numerical modelling.
