Abstract
The study of the effect of early shrinkage is important to prevent aesthetic defects and, especially, to avoid the reduction of durability of concrete elements due to surface cracking. This paper presents the application of a new digital imaging methodology to quantify the effects of polypropylene macrofibres, microfibres and glycolether shrinkage reducing admixture (SRA) on early shrinkage cracking. This way, the effectiveness of different admixtures incorporated into the common base mix design...
